tUrBo KiCk CoUnTdOwN!!!!!

I am asking for a little bit of prayers this week as I prepare to do my thang this Saturday at my Turbo Kick certification. I am getting butterflies in my stomach just thinking about it. 10 - 12 hours of Turbo!! Awww yeeaaahh.

Things I am hoping for:
  1. I get there on time
  2. I can show confidence and personality/showmanship I have learned through dance
  3. I can learn the cuing and teaching techniques great
  4. I will have the stamina it takes
  5. I will get GOLD certification....BUT at least pass :)
  6. and of course............I hope I don't pass out.....................seriously....................
Thanks to everybody for showing so much faith in me with this. It really does make all of the difference. I have been watching other turbo kick instructor videos on You Tube (we finally upgraded our Internet service so we can now get the You Tube channel here in Utah.....lol.......... :) I just hope that I can have a balance in my teaching style that is not annoying. Holy moly seeing some of those instructors made me want to punch them. I hope I don't get punched out from one of my classes. There are some great instructors out there too.

I went into Gold's Gym the other day and asked about their application process etc. and got a schedule of their classes they teach......8 Turbo Kick classes already! WOW! I told the guy what I was getting certified in and he was like "Those classes are really hot." I was thinking about starting an exercise group at our Church for a month or so after getting certified to get me used to teaching in front of people and then start to go out and apply for places because then I could really feel confident.

Anyway, what I love about this is that it really is fun. It totally doesn't feel like a workout. DON'T GET ME WRONG it kicks your butt but I have been reading some instructor materials and it just focuses so much on creating an atmosphere of a party in your classroom. Motivating people, teaching great form and technique but always having fun!

Wish me luck!! It is going to be a blast!!! I will blog all about my experience next week. Who knows maybe when I come to visit you next we can do a class :)
