Did you know that besides the fact that you will learn and get better at this class each time that part of our training as group fitness instructors is that we teach the easier options so where a class may be challenging we teach options during that part of the class so that if your still getting used to the class you can keep up at your own level so you don’t feel left out. A classic example is if we were doing a class where the new move was involving a little jump or hop there would usually be an option of a low impact such as walking the move through till you feel comfortable to try the harder level or in BODYPUMP you simply start with light weights and work up to more as you improve!
