When I log on to my Facebook and see one of my beautiful students repping their sassy selves and celebrating milestones reached in their fitness journeys, not only do I praise their hard work in the comments on their post, but in class in person and privately with them.
Many fitness instructors will tell you that they teach or lead classes, not for them, but for their students – and I couldn’t agree more! To know that you, as an instructor, are a part of someones life changing journey is in itself life changing for you. I am not a fitness instructor for the personal gain I may get from it (although yes it’s how I stay in shape); it’s not about the money I make (or that I spend to stay educated) – it’s about the positive impression I am making on another person’s life to help them better themselves in a way that makes THEM happy!
To that end, Happy Zumbaversary girl! Keep rocking you and yo bad self and congratulations on your successes!
