If there is rhythm or exercise or type of class you tend to stay away from because you feel uncomfortable….THIS SUMMER I CHALLENGE YOU TO TRY IT…LEARN IT!
This is how we become well rounded…this is how we become better instructors….we must attempt to learn as many facets of our job so we can be well equipped to teach it and to expose our members to variety.We get too comfortable in our zone…i challenge you to step out of it and learn something new or try that one thing that you feel uncomfortable doing or teaching.
If all you do is zumba, latin fusion, latin dance or whatever your facility calls it.. i challenge you to do some strength training….i challenge you to try a different type of class….mix it up….i tell you as i am sitting here right now…you will do yourself GOOD….mentally by giving yourself a break from the norm and physically your body will love you for giving it something different instead of the same ol thang!!! and as a bonus mentally you will be charged and rejuvenated and physically your body might start to change or respond to exercise AGAIN…i have heard so many times how folks teach a thousand classes a week…in the beginning lost weight…but now don’t see any change…..duh!!!!!!…..u hear where i am going with this……don’t we tell our participants to mix it up etc….and look at us we don’t even do it…….remember we must be the example…for us to do this we must first DO IT OURSELVES!
Just a little pep talk to my fellow zumba fitness instructors only cuz i have much love for you!!
