How are you guys doing today?
I drove to the gym early this morning to sneak in my workout for the day before I had to train a client. I began my time at the gym with a 20 minute elliptical workout. The workout incorporated intervals to challenge me a bit and get me sweatin’! After my time on the elliptical, I completed an upper body workout in the weight room.
The rest of my day was spent at the gym working away and teaching water fitness. I was a little nervous because one of my fellow instructors was hanging out at the pool with her kids. I think her presence made me nervous because she was one of the instructors I shadowed when I first learned how to teach the class and I didn’t want to disappoint her.
Fortunately the class went well and I felt like everyone was bringing their A-game. High energy!
After class today, I had an exciting conversation with my boss. She asked if I would take over the functional training whiteboard at our gym.
This is right up my alley and I’m pumped to keep it updated with challenging workouts. When I was a member of the gym, before I became an employee, the functional training board was always one of my favorite features. I used it for inspiration and would follow the workouts when the creativity wasn’t flowing and I was feeling less than motivated. If you guys are interested, I’ll snap a picture when it’s updated and share it here as well. Just let me know!
I am also planning to put together a binder with picture demonstrations of many of the exercises to have right by the board so everyone can look up exercises that may be unfamiliar to them. I’ve actually been planning to put together something similar on this blog forever – an exercise glossary page of sorts – so look for that soon!
Lunch today was a chopped salad from Subway that I picked up before it was time to teach water fitness. I ate it while I downloaded new music to use in today’s class.
I also ate the bowl of fruit salad that I packed once I got back.
Hooray for Publix buy one, get one free deals!
Hope you guys are having a great Thursday!
