Since 2006 I’ve been teaching Step aerobics. I’ll admit it, I was pushed into it as the gym needed an instructor and I was around at the right time. To begin with, coming from an aerobics background, I found teaching Step the most confusing thing, it’s a completely different language, you have to negotiate a Step, make sure you don’t trip up and fall on your face, and there’s the issue of me not really knowing my right from my left 😉
7 years on I have fallen in love with Step classes. I love the choreography you can come up with, I love the fact you can make it either high or low impact and I love the people that come to classes. I enjoy it so much I taught all the way through my last pregnancy (till 2 days before giving birth). To me, exercise is meant to be fun. Who cares if you get the routine wrong, go the wrong way or don’t know the moves? I don’t and I frequently go wrong myself.
So after 7 years of teaching large classes (60-80 people) in a gym, I’ve decided to take the plunge and set up my own community class. I’m hoping a smaller class will mean people get to know each other, get to know me and get to have lots of laughs.
