How’s the day going?
It’s been a super productive one here. I’ve noticed that the earlier I get up, the more energy I have (at least for the first part of the day ).
4:30 AM came super early this morning but I was kind of nervous to see how long it would take me to get to Fitness in the City from our new house. I ended up making it in really good time, with a few minutes to spare.
This morning’s workout was a different version of my original countdown workout. It seemed like the perfect combo of upper/lower and strength/cardio. I got some awesome feedback on it too!
After our dynamic training I had them complete the following (I haven’t done this one yet…but plan to do it later this week):
FITC Workout #3
100 Walking Lunges
90 Jumping Jacks
80 Band Rows
70 Squat Jumps
50 Kettlebell Swings
40 Furpees (traveling burpees)
30 Side Plank Hip Dips
10 TRX Stir-the-Pots (each direction)
The workout itself took about 35-minutes and we finished with 10-minutes of foam rolling as a group, which hurt so good.
After coaching two classes, I headed to my *real* job for a day of fun. I spent the morning scheduling interviews: we had 77 responses to our job postings for both trainers and fitness instructors.
Quick lunch break:
This afternoon I headed back over to Fitness in the City to take a class and teach another class. I recently agreed to take on the Tuesday evening class and there are two great classes that sandwich the one I’ll be teaching. It makes for a long day, but I’m excited to take classes from others. As a trainer/instructor, I think it’s so important to experience other styles of teaching and coaching to get ideas of what works well and what could be improved in my own instruction. Never stop improving…right?!
After class I buzzed out to run by our old house to grab a package that was delivered there and finally arrived home, exhausted. Lucky for me, leftovers were on the menu for dinner and I have a sleep in day tomorrow. Yahoo!
Okay, I’m off to browse furniture online and relax
