Y’all, I know it’s not January, but I have a New Years resolution- school year edition.
I want to get in better shape.
“But you teach Pilates, Ruth” you say. “You must be in the best shape everrr.”
And it’s true. I am in fairly good shape. I’m certainly healthy. But it can be so easy just to lazily create my Pilates routines and not actually do them until I teach my class. Sure, three hours a week of strength and flexibility is not bad by any means, but I feel like I should be doing more Pilates than my loyal participants!
As far as cardio goes… I don’t think walking to, from, and around campus should necessarily cut it. I’ve just gotten too good at it, and I don’t think it actually makes my heart rate increase by much.
This year, one of our goals as a group of instructors is to attend one another’s classes more. So Zumba, Werk it, Cycling, Yoga Here I Come!
I’m supposed to do everything to the best of my ability, right? I’m pretty positive that includes my job as a fitness instructor.
Today, Taylor and I are going to a 30-30-30 class at our gym. This means there will be 30 minutes of three different types of exercise formats; we don’t know what they’ll be! It will be good for us, the not knowing thing. Maybe we’ll do an exercise type we normally wouldn’t think to do. And I’ll get to show my support for a fellow instructor.
Team work makes the dream work folks.
So here’s to getting in better shape and setting a better example!
