I am new to small group class training, and am looking for tips on how to perform the warm up portion before the resistance circuits. Also, how do you typically design your classes /choose what parts of the body to work? Do you use more total body exercises to allow for shorter workouts in order to attract more clients that feel as if they’re getting a full body workout in a short period of time?
Hello Melissa Sigler,
We start with stepping in place and gradually move on up to bouncing. Then full range of motion dance moves.
As for class format, I let the clients tell me what they want to work on.
No two classes are identical, to keep things interesting.
We prefer a total body workout in each class.
Of course, things change according to who is in class.
Hi again Melissa,
You also need to have in mind some alternative exercises for those clients who cannot for one reason or another perform the exercise(s) you will have them do. Think of some progressions to the different exercises so you will not have to come up with something last-minute. Better to be prepared than not.
