A Love Letter to Fitness Instructors

My dear colleagues,

I know we’re feeling anxious and sad about the future of the careers we’ve dedicated ourselves too. I’ve had so many of you reach out to me asking if you should forget about teaching and look for something else. It’s heartbreaking and you’re entitled to grieve.

I just finished teaching my virtual Yoga & Training class and felt compelled to share some thoughts.

I’ve had days this week when I felt I had to rush to figure SOMETHING out to create revenue for myself this summer; yet I know that’ never going to be the mindset that will drive success. It’s reaction, not response.

I need to create time to REFLECT on how I CAN SERVE.

I LOVE what I do, and I’m really good at it. I’m allowed to feel that, and you are too!

The virtual classes aren’t the same, but different doesn’t = bad. I had a giggle this morning in class when I could hear my dog dreaming; sharing it with my class doesn’t make it weird, it makes me human. It allows me to connect with them even more.

I’ve been reading the results of studies showing the places that present a higher risk of Covid-19 transmission: where multiple people gather together indoors…Aka the group fitness experience will be changed indefinitely.

Those of us who work in experiential industries are presented with perhaps the greatest challenge of our careers; how do we keep providing a much-needed service without jeopardizing the health and safety of the ones we serve?

HERE’S THE THING! I’ve spent 25 years working with the most fabulous colleagues; if anyone can figure this out WE CAN!
