I have been loving teaching group fitness again! Right now, I am teaching Trim and Tone (total conditioning) class on Wednesday mornings as well as spinning on Monday, Tues, and Thurs.

I try to keep my class format the similar from week to week because people like to have an idea of how class will be set up. To keep things interesting, I change up the actual exercises. This helps to keep people engaged and keep our muscles challenged.

I was still sore on Saturday from Wed. morning’s class. Here is what we did!
