Monday, I taught my first Aqua Zumba. There was no sound system. An ipod dock with tiny speakers arrived at 5:45, 15 minutes after my class was supposed to start. I forgot half of my choreography, although the six students who took the class probably couldn’t tell. I liked some of the routines, but overall it still needs a lot of work and I have about three weeks before the class goes live.
Tuesday, I taught 3 Zumba classes. Subbed for the morning instructor and then my two regular classes. Poor attendance in all three. May is a tough month in the fitness world.
Wednesday, I taught my second turbo class. This time I had two students, one of whom got really confused in the punches & kick section. I have been doing Round 47, which is the round I learned at training but I didn’t like the lyrics in the punches section so I have been using music from another round. Turns out this is a big no-no. I am disappointed and a little frustrated at the lack of flexibility. I will either have to learn a different round for punches or I will have to use the music associated with Round 47. [sigh]
Thursday, I taught my regular Zumba class.
Friday, I taught my Zumba Toning class which is getting sadder by the week as far as attendance goes.
Saturday, I subbed for Amy and taught my first Piloxing class.
So in a span of a week, I have taught five different types of fitness classes. Oh the choreography going through my head right now. And I am working on new Zumba routines from ZIN 38 as I type.
As far as my diet goes, I am staying away from sugar pretty well but I have eaten too much GF bread the last couple of weeks and my tummy is not happy 😦
