My random thoughs for the week...

Hello all…this is my first official posting on this site as a blog. I decided to go ahead and write about my experience as a Jazzercise instructor. There are many things that I’d like to share about this experience; I hope that I can entertain some of you on the way. At the very least, I will always post my teaching schedule and the set that I’ll be teaching that week.

One thing that I always found frustrating as a student was LOVING a song, but not knowing the name of it. Jazzercise has so many great songs, that I thought I would share will everyone the listing of songs that I create for my sets. Whether I’m teaching a regular class or an express class, I want to be sure to share this info with my students.

Becoming a Jazzercise instructor has been good, but tough at the same time. There is a lot of pressure to learn routines quickly and place them into your sets. I have a much easier time learning the strength training routines rather than the aerobic…maybe because these tend to be repetitive moves over and over. I feel badly for my students because it has been a long struggle for me to integrate in new songs into my classes.

Another item that I struggle with is the balance of time…being new to Jazzercise, I want to take on the world and help everyone out and teach as many classes as I can. Over the last few days, I have realized that I’m human…I can’t help everyone and I have had to change some of my commitments. I hope that students and owners can understand I’m just so excited to help everyone out and I tend to over commit. *sigh* such is life!

So this week, I am teaching an Express class and a Regular class…my song postings are already up here for the students to see. So, that being said…if you have any requests or suggestions for me, please feel free to email me.

Below are the routines that I’m working on for the upcoming weeks:
If I were a boy – Stretch Routine
Healing – Leg Routine
Just Dance – Ab Routine
Drives me crazy – Upper Torso Routine
