Good afternoon! I have some exciting news to share today.
Beginning in November, I’ll officially be teaching group exercise classes again!
(The above photo was snapped right after I taught my first group exercise class. Shout out to water fitness!)
I had my final interview at a local gym today and will be on the group exercise schedule when the next one comes out on the first of November. I am thrilled to be getting back into the swing of things! I’ll be teaching a variety of classes (hopefully adding PiYo to the mix in December) and can’t wait!
The atmosphere at my new gym is rather different from the gym where I taught and trained clients before in Ocala. I previously worked at the YMCA in Ocala and really love everything the Y does for the community and its members. It was a large gym and I miss it!
My new gym is not nearly as large as the Y. It’s not part of a national chain and is much smaller than a big community gym. It’s a private club gym and I really hope I can add to the group exercise program when I begin next month. I’m definitely looking forward to it!
But let’s back up a bit…
Workout + Breakfast
Today began with a 6 a.m. Pure Barre workout followed immediately by breakfast and blogging.
On the menu for today was a bowl of egg white oatmeal topped with cinnamon and served with a hot tumbler of Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice tea.
After breakfast, I had a freelance article to write, so I spent most of my morning on the computer until Sadie’s level of annoying skyrocketed and she needed some attention. We headed out on a mid-morning walk just before lunch and it felt good to get some fresh air!
Lunch + Interview
For lunch, I drove Salsaritas before my interview at the gym. I ordered a burrito bowl and enjoyed it outside on the patio with a side of chips and queso.
After lunch, it was interview time… And now we’re all up to date! Hope you’re having a great Monday!
