Sunday will be our Totally Tubular Tabata Student Appreciation class to show just how much I appreciate the class that started it all.
I've talked about change and comfort zones before on this page. If you stay in your comfort zone, you start to become stagnant and tend to plateau. I began to feel uninspired and... Stagnant. I felt as though I was not giving my all to my classes. If you know me or have been in my classes more than once (or twice), you will know that feeling is very important to me. I thrive knowing that my students know that I care about them. However, lately I have been feeling like I have been in a season of change. I am not sure what type of change I have needed.
Guess what? We are starting our challenges again! That's right... It is monthly challenge time. What will this challenge be? That's up to YOU! You can help decide what February's Challenge will be by clicking here. You have three options: HIIT, Glutes or Core. Voting ends by noon on Monday, January 30th. Let your voice be heard.
I took some time this weekend to update my vision board. Instead of including longer term goals, I decided to include my goals for this year.
So many times for you to try out new classes in the New Year. A chance to make new friends and who might just have the same goals as you. That is just one of the benefits of Group Exercise classes.
We are coming upon New Year's Eve and that tradition of making those New Year's resolutions. If you go back to my previous post, you will know how I feel about resolutions. I even urged my readers to start changing themselves before the New Year. According to http://www.statisticbrain.com, 45% of Americans make New Year's resolutions. According to Nielson, our friends that tell us everything about consumers, losing weight was the second most popular resolution being made; behind STAYING fit and healthy. I went on social media this morning and saw posts of friends receiving fitness gear and even gym memberships. Yay!!! However, I know of one tool that is going to be purchased and I have to tell you all to "DON'T DO IT!"
Today I walked into a technology store to attempt to arm my ten-year old with some 2005 technology. Yes, we are those parents. Even though my husband is in the IT field, our children have never been armed with the latest and greatest technology. My son will most likely be one of the last in his class to receive a cell phone, and you know what? I am just fine with that. Especially after today's events.
The end is near... The end of the month, the end of the year and the end of the leftovers. How are you with your 2016 goals? If you are participating in our No Stress November Challenge, have you been able to take time out of your days and just "be"?
What else would I be posting about this week? Would you expect anything less? I am so thankful for my students. They really stepped up to the challenging workouts that I put forth this week. I am also thankful that I am healthy enough to help out my fellow instructors during this Thanksgiving week, so they may spend time with their families. This week's schedule has some classes missing, but EXTRA opportunities for us to be together this week! I am so excited to see some new friends and my regular friends this week. I hope that you will join me this week.
