Hi everyone! Hope you’ve had a wonderful day <3 This morning, I taught Zumba and also a mini barre class to the studio owner so she could see where I need to go with my training. Each studio has their own routine and method -the one that picked me also seems to be one of the most challenging workouts- and I’m excited to learn more about how to teach.
I tried to take a selfie to show my Zumba clown pants, but my phone couldn’t even handle it haha:
Shoes on the stage:
When I was regularly training clients -which seems like so long ago since I’ve been only doing handfuls of new clients here and there!- there were three areas that always seemed to be of top concern: triceps (firming up the back of the arms), stomach, and legs. For the ones who wanted to firm and sculpt their arms, I usually suggested the trifecta of killer results: cardio, adequate nutrition, and strength training. For stomach, it was almost all about nutrition. Legs were a little more complex.
Here are some of my best lower lower body training tips if you’re looking to build strength/power and lean muscle, while simultaneously burning fat.
