Im a group fitness instructor about to embark on my first job. The gym I will be working for wants a functional strength class but Im having a hard time deciding on what exercises to do and how to make the whole class flow. I was wondering if anyone has any pointers on making a nice cohesive class? What are your top 5 tips for designing classes?
I would focus on large dynamic motions then build upon that as your base.
For instance, start with step touches, then add arms then and a small jump so it turns into a step jump then go into squats, then add weights etc.
If it’s true functional training,think about motions in daily life that we all use that you can incorporate such as reaching overhead and down.
