Bypassing common fitness mistakes article continues…Rookie Mistake: You’re Crushed by Criticism

Yesterday two people walked out in the middle of your class. Today a woman asked you if the old instructor would ever be back. One of the regulars said she didn’t like the routine you’d spent the entire weekend working on. You’re beginning to wonder if a job digging ditches might be more rewarding.

Expert Move

Some members don’t like change and you are new, so they don’t like you. Every class becomes a proving ground, and the only way to win is to beat your students to the punch. Don’t wait for criticism; ask for it. Remind people that this is their class and you want to know how you can make it fit their needs. Leave your ego behind and meet them outside, ready to listen to everything they have to say. Do this every week for as long as it takes.

It’s never possible to please everyone, but the fact that you’re trying goes a long way. No matter how long you’ve been teaching, “helpful suggestions” will always be forthcoming. Look at each one closely, and rather than beating yourself up, see if you can find a way to improve.

It takes guts to get in front of people, put yourself out there and try to deliver a home-run performance day after day. Give yourself credit for all the hard work you do, and get ready to trade in your rookie card for a ticket to the big leagues.



  • Congrats to Almira for securing our first PT client at Verge. How did she do it? By conducting an orientation there, following up and being available. Way to go Almira!
  • Deanna wrangled some ladies in the gym working out to come and join her class. Don’t be afraid to go seek out new fans :)

Xcellent Events and Fit-X 4 Good

  • Heidi Smith.... Mass Casualty victim supreme...Academy Award please. (Check out all the pictures on our Facebook page)
  • Heidi joined our founders; Scott and Deno Bell, at the San Diego Coast Guard Station as volunteers to support our Coast Guardians in a competition and fundraiser.  Heidi flexed her acting muscles as a victim suffering from a sucking chest wound, compound fracture and 3rd degree burn in a mass casualty roll play.  Luckily they were able to save her and treat her wounds. In fact, she was saved 4 times by 4 different crews.  She was invited to join the Guardians for a chili tasting and lunch afterward.  Heidi, we really appreciate your team spirit.  It is our pleasure to award you a $50.00 gas card for supporting The Coast Guardians and our Fit-X 4 good efforts.
