Dream Coming True

I passed the basic training to become BodyCombat Instructor few weeks ago and I've had some classes since then. Participants already gave me some very motivating feedback and I feel very natural in front of the class and really enjoy instructing and giving my best. My next classes are in this week on Saturday and Sunday. I don't have a regular class of my own - yet.

I'm very excited and looking forward to learn the new release BC31 when I get the DVD in the beginning of March. Sadly Les Mills doesn't have training for that release in the city where I live in and it's more than 300 km to the nearest training. I'm a student and can't afford travelling all day for few hours training - I don't have the time or the money. Some instructors are going by their own car but they are leaving so early in the morning and I have to be at school... which is my number one priority right now.

I have to tell you that being able to instruct the whole class through has given me a lot more self-confidence in life. Fortunately the answer for my question "do I have what it takes?" is very likely YES. If this is actually happening, maybe there are others dreams achievable as well.

BodyCombat Sizzler 31

Team spirit comes to the fore in this great new class that instructors will find easy to learn and teach and members will love for its martial arts focus and authenticity. Team teaching will bring out the best of the class where two or more instructors can work together - they can inspire huge group energy when they dress alike and showcase the unique skills that each member of the team has to offer. A single instructor can also inspire team spirit with appropriate cueing that keeps everyone working together.

BODYCOMBAT 31 starts off to the powerhouse start, so fighters beware! You need to work easy through the scissors and keep the Decoys low to avoid peaking too soon, then let the drums in Rock This Party drive the rhythm of the strikes in the lower body warmup.

The first combat track is all about firing your best-ever Roundhouse Kick and working with Black Spider's hugely powerful Save your Life!

Then it's time 2 Dream about the ultimate boxing workout in Power Training 1 - heart and lungs will beg for mercy before you're finished.

Capoeira, Jump Kicks and Evasive Side Kicks are back in the house at Track 4, with Jabs, Uppercuts and Speedballs to follow when training resumes to the high-intensity Bad Reputation, from OneZeroOne.

Foot position is key in the new Muay Thai track - it'll allow you to create and use maximum momentum in the strikes.

Next up is an ultra-long training track to test and build your endurance.

Fighters focus on timing perfect pushups to the Pussycat Dolls' Bite the Dust and wind up another awesome class with Katas and Chad Kroeger's inspirational Hero.
