As I’ve told you, it’s my mission to help YOU be the best fitness instructor out there. With that said, here is my VERY FIRST Instructor Tip of the Month!!
Comment and say hi, and ask questions if you have ’em! Make sure to watch out for my next tip!
Until next time,
Thank you Michelle! This is very helpful advice, since classes have so many new people after the holidays👍🏻💕
HUGE! I’ve heard you say that comment before and it’s rich with such good advice. “Give your students PERMISSION to modify!” It really does set the tone. Heck. I prefer modifications on some moves!
Having a broad audience like that is tough. Encourage the new student and show mods, all the while keeping the advanced students engaged and challenged.
Good stuff! Thank you so much for the personal message and that jewel of advice!!
Hi. I was having that issue. So I started having a girl in my class stand by me and she does the regular routine and I do the modifications. She is a regular and comes to every class. I am working with her I think she is going to get certified.
Thank you !!! I️ forget this sometimes !! The permission is huge , you are right ❤️… thanks for sharing the love of teaching
I love it when I get the nod from you that my modification is good👍🏻It does make me feel like I am still part of the group.
Haha I do this all the time! But because I feel like the newbies work so hard to keep up… their ears turn off :/ but they’re eyes work!! And the continue to follow me… so I lead at least half the class modified! The divas already know the drill and love to push to those intense levels ….
Such a simple and easy tip that will make a huge difference. Thank you Michele for sharing! I love this. I wish there was a tip a week!!
Such great advice! I always “tell” them to listen to their bod and modify when they need to. I love this! I bet giving them ACTUAL PERMISSION would be so powerful. Thank you Michele! <3
Very helpful!!!:) thank you!
I love this! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience with us!
Yess ♡♡♡ I strive to do THIS often ♡
I reassure students that IT’S OK to take the options, It’s ok, NOT to go super low in the lunges, or lift the leg sky high, etc.
I let them know the moves I struggle with, what burns 😎🔥 as to show them IT’S hard, but we get stronger together every class♡
They love when I remind them not to give up on themselves, and that it’s “their personal workout”.
One of the many things I adore aboit this format♡ … multi level ♡♡♡♡ for Anyone♡
Thank you Michele!! I was just reading today in the ACE group fitness blog on what not to say or make your newbies feel discouraged. You should show both modified and advanced and allow them to choose😄
I have done this for a while, but I learned it from our PiYo Live Round videos. I really like the word ‘permission!’ Not just telling them they can, but giving them ‘permission’ to do so. It is honestly so freeing for them! And they come back. Love all that you do for us Instructors!
Great for any instructional activity..thanks so very much for your kind and positive training the trainer!
