Step in the Right Direction
Walk pun intended.
In the last blog post, I let loose the news that I wanted to be a fitness instructor. Since then, two weeks ago in fact, I have completed the training and certification to be a Walk15 Instructor (Basic). And I’ve also been put on the list to start training for Rugbytots in the local area, teaching 2-7 year olds (in different classes) the joy of RUGBY!!!!!
And yes, I do love Rugby. In fact, those of you who know me know full well that I really don’t like football and love Scotland’s national rugby team. So turning my favourite sport into a job of sorts is awesome, and an opportunity to introduce rugby to kids at an early age.
For those of you not aware, Walk 15 is a brilliant franchise of walking workouts. Essentially, you walk on the spot for 15 minutes and you’ve walked a mile in your living room, or a village hall with your friends. There are extra steps to add to it, to raise heartrate, and to work the muscles of your body.
At the moment, I’m only a Basic Level instructor, therefore can’t teach more than ‘2 miles’ (half an hour). Eventually, I’d like to become a Master Level instructor, but that takes a whole other course and money. Once I’ve got myself established, of course.
Are you in the Chard, Somerset area? Interested in coming along? Plus, it is a great way to get your step count up on your Fitbit!
To top it off, I’ve had a pretty interesting job interview this week, one that lasted over an hour and a half! Scary direction to go in, considering I only went into the interview with a dogsbody job in mind.
Changing it up
As for the weights, I’ve started changing some of the exercises, or at least swapping them for alternate versions, so zercher squats instead of back squats, reverse curls instead of bicep curls. And so on.
I’m looking for another program, preferably one that is more intense, or at least has more exercises in now that it’s been six weeks on that basic program from Men’s Fitness. Any suggestions? Preferably one that’s free, and doesn’t use cable machines (so I can carry on in my living room).
What program are you following?
