Today marks the end of a short, but awesome era in my life…my current stint as a fitness instructor. Though I’m sure I’ll be back, it will be somewhere new, with different people and after baby.
I started taking some classes when we moved here that were in formats that I was certified to teach, but hadn’t (I taught Insanity for about 2 months a while ago, but not TurboKick or PiYo). I subbed for the instructor a few times. And then, she moved. So I got to take over those classes. For the past 7 months, it has been both wonderful and a little stressful. Adding 3 hours of classes, plus prepping, plus the extra energy of giving it your all some days when you don’t have it, was a welcome strain. I always left feeling amazing!
But, with moving (a traffic filled) 20+ miles away and being 29 weeks pregnant, it was time. It’s been harder to show full moves. I spent half of Wednesday night’s class talking them through the moves with terrible heart burn. I’m constantly reminding them to do as I say, not as I do. While my class participants are super supportive, I’m sure it’s starting to detract from their workout, if not only by being distracting.
So, this morning is my last PiYo class. And then I’ll move on. But I will take this experience with me as an amazing one and will use all the good feeling for it to get me started again after this kiddo arrives. Because more than anything, I love to share the ways I fit fun in my fitness. Sharing that with others is what I’m here to do.
If you want to try a class near you, look here for others…
Or hit up any of the home programs if you can’t make it to a class or prefer working out at home!
For Turbo Kick…
Hopefully, this means more posts though 🙂
See you soon!
