rockin’ out my very FIRST group fitness class back in 2008!
who knew that all it took for me to come out of my shell was a microphone and some dumbbells? i am pretty shy and reserved..a total introvert. however, when i put that mic on, all fear is gone. public speaking is no longer mt. fiji and i feel so free but still in complete control. I’ve been a group fitness instructor for over 5 years now, but i still get butterflies before every single class, never fails. somehow i am able to channel all that nervous energy into a crazed, motivating, calorie burning maniac.
my fire and intensity for group fitness is refueled after every class i teach. i love to see people working out with maximum effort and sweating like a little piggy! to know that i play a part in creating real, significant change for someone is truly gratifying. my husband used to tell me ‘ you know, you CAN skip a workout or two…really.’ something inside won’t let me. sometimes i have a random, overwhelming desire to just RUN. so i do. not because i ate bad and the guilt is haunting me, but because it honestly does make me feel GOOD. inside and out. the saying is true- when you look good you feel good. while i love taking and teaching strength and cardio classes, i do try to run at least 2-3 times per week outside, not on the treadmill.
i can really tear up a pair of shoes.
