Yep, that’s me!
Today was my first time ever teaching a group exercise class! I subbed for an instructor at one of the gyms in my area at a
bright dark and early 5:45 a.m. I was a bit apprehensive about the turnout since the class time was so early, but luckily I had an enthusiastic class that was more than ready to sweat!
During training I received basic instruction about the format of the class and I worked with what I knew! I started by demonstrating each of the exercises at the stations, followed by a 5 minute warm up. We jogged around the room and then it was time to start.
We completed the circuit twice before meeting in the middle for all-together fun. We did two exercises back and forth across the room: shuffles and Frankenstein walks. Everyone grabbed a drink and headed back to their original stations to complete one more round. We ended up finishing in just under an hour!
I wanted to make the experience personal, so I hopped from station to station to complete exercises with the class. Everyone was SO awesome and I couldn’t have asked for a better first experience! To say I love this job is quite the understatement. I am so blessed!
Now it’s time to leave my baby Cocoa and head to school. I’m hoping to catch up on blog reading at some point today.. Life is nuts right now!
