I’m a group fitness instructor that teaches Step/strength training two days a week and a Zumba class one day a week. I’m a bit on the cubby side and I really want to get in better shape. I really want to try the P90X and/or Insanity. I also want to be able to balance my own fitness routine while still teaching classes and not over due it or injure myself. Do you have any suggestions?
Hello Melissa Ortega,
You are rather active, already; that’s great.
When I find myself in the same predicament, what seems to work is treating myself as I would treat a client.
That is good you want to balance your workouts. Exactly what kind of strength is being done during the step classes? It seems to me that you may benefit from adding a separate strength training session to your workout schedule.
Do you teach the classes at a facility? If so, is a personal trainer able to help you? The face to face contact would be very helpful.
I hope this helps, take care.
