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?
I’d say trying to get into a routine is the best way to go about this. Plan out the next few weeks you have and have specific times you’ll be working out.
If you’re already working out in your classes, you’re working out 3 days a week. Might want to add two more days where you hit it harder than you would with the class, and keep two rest days in there.
Yes I am very busy and I do admit I like to eat, so I’ve started tracking my meals using Weight Watchers. I have a hard time taking the time tracking my food, but I know it works if I work the program. I do realize I need to take a closer look at my nutrition. But I also want to explore other types of fitness I want to find some kind of balance between my own fitness and teaching classes.
