Fit-Xcellent News Nov 5th

Corporate Office will be closed Wednesday, November 11th for Veterans Day. 

Surveys are Starting November 9th: You will either be mailed slips to hand out to your participants or can find them already on location. Below are the specific links by area:

  • Please just hand out slips to class and ask them to take out their phones and complete survey. Participants will be entered to win a $300 PT package. 
  • Remind them to include your name as the instructor for your chance to win too. 
  • Last Year Heidi Frechette, Katie Officer, Lory Battisti & on Amber Cottrell won $25 gas cards for having their participants conduct our survey.


Rookie Mistake: You Overshare

To break up the monotony of the workout, you regale your class with funny stories, talk about the latest movies, or share your opinions on current events. You are providing a workout and entertainment! What could be better?

Expert Move

You have a microphone and a captive audience; don’t abuse them. Polarizing topics like politics or religion have no place in the classroom, but even more benign topics can be a turnoff. People are in your class to do something for themselves. Make them the focus. Talk about things that are relevant to the task at hand, and save the rest for the locker room or a coffee date with your close friends.

The urge to gab often comes from the fear of dead air. Fill that void by beefing up your cuing.

  • Repeat setup cues for participants who missed key pieces.

  • Cue modifications, and talk about what students should be feeling and where they should be feeling it.

  • Throw down a challenge on how to increase intensity.

  • Remind people of the positive changes they are making in their bodies.

  • Praise their efforts.

If you still feel the need to make class more personal, talk about the challenges you face with a particular move and how you work with it. Knowing an exercise can be tough for you as well will do more to help students relate to you than knowing who your favorite Kardashian is.
