What’s Your Niche?

Let’s face it. As humans, we can’t do it all. There is no way to be perfect, knowledgeable, and practiced in every form of group exercise possible. Just as Olympic athletes, you must find your niche as a group fitness instructor. Now don’t freak out, I’m not saying you should be a one-trick pony. There is no […]

Last summer, one of my most successful workout posts was Core Galore.

Today for Workout Wednesday, I want to share Core Galore Updated! It’s no […]
