Group classes are great for pushing yourself, but you never have to work at a level that’s not comfortable for you! 6. No one’s paying attention to you. I used to fall into the “everyone’s watching me” trap, but not anymore.

And if you think that way in group ex class, well, you’re wrong. Group fitness is a great way to help motivate yourself and others to dig deeper and push harder in workouts. More: Stay Motivated to Workout With Group Exercise.

2. Structure. Group fitness is a great way to get a workout in without having to think or plan. Each class is structured with a warm-up, a balanced workout and a cool-down.

It’s that time of the week where I reveal this weeks amazing group fitness class ideas. If you want to be the trainer/bootcamp that gets all the attention/clients this year, then the Workout Design Club is an essential tool.. Not only does it let you plan a variety of workouts one month at a time in a matter of minutes, but these unique & entertaining group fitness class ideas will help you. Group fitness classes such as Zumba and Spinning are a lot like fashion in that, as Heidi Klum says, “One day you’re in, and the next day you’re out.” The beauty of this ever-changing industry is that there are always new, creative takes on traditional exercise classes, as.

Share yours; your class needs it. We can have great choreography and be very knowledgeable but without a little charisma, our classes might fall short. We don’t all need an over-the-top personality but we DO need some stage presence. After all, we are in front of a group. We need to be engaging.

Great music is a huge part of creating an. First things first: half the battle of building a fitness routine is actually getting your butt to the gym to begin with. With group classes, you’ll be more motivated than ever.

Most classes ask that you book a spot ahead of time, so skipping out means you’ve not only lost your chance to workout, but also took away someone else’s. Read on and enjoy, as I discuss how you can grow your group fitness class numbers. People attend group fitness classes to be motivated by the energy of others and for the chance to sweat in a community setting. Your role as the group fitness instructor is a big one, with a lot going on outside of leading participants through a safe workout.

Group fitness classes, including many bootcamps, often have a similar “work till you drop” mindset. While this may push you to do a great workout at the time, it’s not a sustainable mantra. 5. An outstanding group fitness instructor invests in their continuing education. They know the importance of getting a nationally recognized certificate as an exercise instructor, in.

I’m a group fitness lover. I’m a group fitness instructor. I have a few things that I expect to experience when I attend any type of group fitness class.

I trained to teach my first Les Mills group fitness class, BODYPUMP, a few years ago while living in Orlando, and my second, CXWORX, a few months ago in San Francisco.

As fitness instructors we want to create and teach the most motivating and fun classes possible, balancing this aspect with the need to be safe.

  • Thank you for making it feel enjoyable and exciting and creative and not overwhelming and daunting and intimidating!! Haha!!! My husband’s been real encouraging me to do this so thank you for showing us some examples. ��

  • Thanks for making these videos. I am following a group exercise course in in another language(dutch) and I do not speak or understand Dutch very well..so it is 2times more difficult for me to get it. Well English is also not my mother tongue either but better than Dutch. Anyways.. thank you again I wish my teacher was as informative, encourging and supportive as you. May I ask you some questions or tips through email?

  • Just started following you and love your videos! I was on FB and the Xtend Barre ad came up (for the first time in my feed). I started to research classes on YouTube and one of your videos popped up. Another to add to the list: I hate when a student walks in 10 minutes late, the instructor stops leading the class, and turns attention to Ms. Tardy, proceeding to have a conversation as to why they’re late, and continues to have a conversation about it. “Oh, your kids woke up late and you had to take them to school….oh I hate that….I hope they still have a good day. Oh, you did not sleep well either…oh, little Joey is sick?….”

  • Thank you!! I am a newly qualified PT and I am expected to run classes at my new gym, so any information is very, very helpful!! Cheers xx

  • Did this today! Omg, first ever crossfit attempt or at least I think it was, new to it. I have been doing cardio for over a year now and clean eating and this kicked my butt today. Was great! How DO you have SO much energy at the end lol!!

  • I took a class with a coach who would leave the room mid-interval to chat at the front desk or drink water outside. I NEVER went back to his class again haha

  • To Katy! I found your channel while searching through YouTube for advice because I am on the path to being a group fitness instructor! I’ve never done anything like it before and I was so nervous because I was worried about what to say or how I would act. Thank you for this video and giving me the confidence that no matter the outcome on that first day I can grow and learn from it and that I can make it happen!

  • What a fantastic video! This is exactly what I have felt my journey has been over the past 14 months as a GFI….. Am truly grateful for the opportunity I’ve been given, and thank you for the wonderful encouragement.

  • I’m thinking about becoming an insanity instructor. There’s a certification next month on the 22, Just thinking about it scares me but I want to go for it. I’m still on my journey to be in the best shape of my life so I think the one thing that scares me the most is not being able to talk while I’m teaching people.
    Also I was thinking before I go get a job at a gym to ask friends if I can teach them at a park so I can practice and go in with a lot more confidence to a gym. Is that something you think I can do? Insanity is my soulmate workout and I really want to motivate people to find their power to push a little more each day.

  • Hey I’m from Sauce, we’re currently creating a really cool video about gym classes. We saw your video and thought it’s amazing. We would love to include some of the clips in the video we’re creating, would that be okay?

  • Hey wow these are awesome exercise classes. your energy is awesome! Specific Question: around 15:38 15:40 ish while you’re holding yourself up, there are 2 huge pointy muscles popping out of your back. They’re under your traps I think? Are those muscles someone with a flat back can work on or are those just shoulder blades popping out? Or delts? These are awesome pandemic classes!!!

  • I loved your ideas Katy. I am certified to teach Turbo Kick, got certified in March but I have not yet taught my first class. I really WANT to be a fitness instructor more than anything but I dont know where to start. Cueing looks a lot easier than it is. Learning the rounds….and learning what to say…It is overwhelming but I want it so So so bad. Do you have any advice?
