Hey! What a mouthful right? But I had a point to make. The other night, last night to be precise, I was thinking ‘thoughts of a group fitness instructor’ would be a great topic for a post.
As you know I absolutely LOVE teaching Group Fitness and it’s a huge passion of mine- especially as a predominant Les Mills Group Fitness Instructor, so these are some of the things I’m thinking whilst on stage doing my thang (it’s all in good fun so please don’t be offended at any remarks).
Thoughts of a Group Fitness Instructor:
Good turn out today!
Oh hey, that’s that lady/guy I haven’t seen for a while….gosh what’s their name.
Why are they not smiling -.-
Am I annoying her? Does she even like me?
Damn it’s hot!
Ahh excuse me- I said watch the first one, not come with me (hahah!)
Okay, self choreographing I see…
Oh no the fans on me- go away!
I probably should stop talking now, right?
Oh crap, did he/she hurt themselves?
Oh gosh, do I need to pee…must not think of peeing.
Is that music loud enough…is it too loud?
Can they even hear what I’m saying?
Oh bugger my hairs going everywhere must retie when I get a second
What’s next, what’s next, what’s next
Oh wow, that was really off key…maybe I shouldn’t sing
Did I just have a blowout?
Small class today What did I do wrong?
I’ve got to remember to change this track next time
Is my technique perfect?
Goddamn top keeps falling down, I hope they don’t think I wore this top for that reason
Check out that technique
Are they laughing at me or with me…or at themselves?
Why did she leave early…is she not having fun? What did I do wrong?
Oh my legs hurt….must keep pushing
I love teaching these members!
I’m so lucky to be doing what I love
That’s a few from me- what about you other instructors out there?
If you’re a Group Fitness Instructor (or PT) what are some of the thoughts that go through your mind during a class?
