I love doing group training classes. The energy and noise from the group provides great feedback to what I’m doing and most importantly how effective the exercises are.
- Grunts: a good indicator of the difficulty level of an exercise
- Sighs: a not so favorite exercise has been introduced
- Chit chat: not challenging enough
- Heavy breathing: everyone is working hard
As a professional it’s important that I listen to my clients, provide sound, safe activities that will help them reach their goals. I want people to like the workout, the group-dynamic and want to come back, week after week.
Ultimately though I’m responsible for making the workout challenging. So while I hear the sighs and the chit chat, it’s the heavy-breathing and grunts that are music to my ears.
Now go run!
