YSBAI #2: Tips for Group Fitness Instructors

I’m back with YSBAI (You Should Blog About It) #2.  These are topics and/or questions that come from readers. B.K.A. Q&A, but just let me have this please 😉

Before we get started, I wanted to share something with you.  Do you ever watch this show?

The Biggest Loser

I was talking about today’s topic & my sister told me that whenever she watches that show, it never fails that the participants end up teaching some sort of group fitness class.  Well, that makes sense to me.  I’ve always said that if you want to hold yourself accountable to staying fit, then teach a class or two.  Even if it’s volunteer, you shouldn’t fall off the wagon because you always have somewhere to go each week and deliver rockstar performances to your class participants.

The question for today comes from Carli over at Real Into who is training to be a new Pilates instructor.

For any number of reasons in life, you are bound to pick up a hater.  I pick up some just because of my demeanor. You may get that as well, or maybe; you lost a lot of weight, started a business, joined the church, married a “top bachelor”, landed an amazing job, bought a nice car, beat the odds, had children before your close friend/family member, skin complexion, etc.

“A person that simply cannot be happy for another person’s success. So rather than be happy they make a point of exposing a flaw in that person.

Hating, the result of being a hater, is not exactly jealousy. The hater doesnt really want to be the person he or she hates, rather the hater wants to knock someone else down a notch.”
