Welcome back workout- Drums Alive!! Presented by Michelle Whipple (Whip) — so much fun!!!
Week Zero is the week for fitness instructors to prepare for the intense year ahead! I got re certified in ProBloodBorne Pathogens, CPR/AED, and First-Aid. I had 2 hour power step session presented by Katie Hake and one hour cardio blast vs. dance mania vs. zumba workshop where I taught a song and we went over the new regulations which are to not use a microphone as much and use non-verbal cues as much as possible as well as teaching facing the participants the whole time as opposed to facing the mirror with them. These are new to me so I’ve got some practicing to do!!
