Well February is here, the month of love… and my birthday!!!
Now that we are full steam ahead into 2013 I feel so inspired and motivated. I am loving my classes, enjoying planning future events and full of ideas for my new DVD’s and downloads. It was great to have a break over Christmas I have bounced back with renewed energy and vigour.
My community classes are finally coming back into their own, have lots of new people coming that have heard about the classes through word of mouth, social media, websites and leaflets. I’m thrilled that they are back on track, I do love my community classes. I have realized how easy it is ,relatively, to teach at clubs. The mic is there, the air con is on, the PR and marketing is dealt with by the club all you have to do is turn up and teach but despite this, ultimately community classes are where my heart lies. I like being my own boss and the people are there just because of you, it’s a very rewarding feeling.
The flip side is you need to work harder to get the people through your door but I have always loved a challenge! When you love your job it makes it so much easier.
How are you finding the numbers in your classes?
I love to hear about your businesses, a special mention to Jane Wrafter who is running a fantastic fitness business. Let me know, give me a shout on twitter @JoParryLeeds #chat
Fitness Fiesta in Hinkley on Friday and Saturday was amazeballs. I couldn’t wait to get presenting again and catching up with fellow presenters and punters. I love to hear what everyone’s been up to, what’s happening in their world and the changes in the fitness industry. The beauty of our business is its always evolving so we are always learning and advancing our skill set. I had 5 sessions this weekend; Freestyle step, Freestyle dance aerobics, Strictly Fit, Lyrical Jazz and Boomshackalack! (street dance/ragga), I am so buzzing with new choreography zooming around my head that I feel I will burst! My favorite class is actually Strictly fit as I will have a room of people who may have never danced before and within an hour they will be dancing the Cha Cha Cha, Salsa, Jive, Foxtrot et al. I did the training for Fitness First on this Strictly Fit program and made DVD’s which are also very popular with people wanting to learn to dance at home and to continue their dancing from the class. All DVD’s are always available on my site. Do you fancy yourself as the next Flavia?
I recently added to youtube and facebook a quick clip of my new pre-choreographed dance to ‘Olly Murs – Troublemaker’ I use it in my Zumba classes and the guys love it, take a look and have a little shimmy!
The downloads are still going strong, the most popular are Step and Aerobics. You can purchase them via my website www.joparry.com I will be filming some new ones soon, so please do let me know which disciplines would be useful for you and your classes.

Have a great week whatever you are up to? The snow is falling again so if you do have a snow day or manage to get out to the cinema then just a heads up, Matt and I watched the film ‘Lincoln’ the other evening at the cinema starring Daniel Day – Lewis and directed by Steven Spielberg, the acting was incredible and what President Lincoln stood for was too, but sadly for me, the film was too slow, I actually nodded off for a second!!! ZZZZZZzzzzzzz
