I've been teaching 30 years and I have learned that it isn't all about me. I need you in my class!
When I new person walks in to my class, I'm nervous but also excited of what that person might bring to my class. New participates coming into class will pump up the energy in the room, just by them being there. So the next time you are starting out to a new exercise class and think you are going to be nervous or feel awkward,
Energy in a fitness is class is a good thing! You need it to make the class motivating for all participates.
I will teach my scheduled classes if there is 1 person there or I will teach it if there are 100 people there! I know if you came to class, you were expecting to exercise, so I won't let you down. But the class is more enjoyable for all when it is a full class.
When the class is filled, the energy is up as well. The instructor gets pumped and so will you. So if you are thinking of skipping class today...
