After a great break I am back on it, I am happily submerging myself into the full throttles of work. We have a few date nights in the diary to keep me sane and lots of wedding prep to keep me out of mischief. Other than that I’m all fired up to get my groove on.
In preparation I treated myself to some new wheels. Got me a nice pair of Nikes at the outlet in Pontefract for a bargain price, I was well impressed. New trainers = Bouncing off the ceiling all week. Me thinks my calves will regret this. The outlets are very hit and miss but if you go on a good day you really can pick up some treats.
So, my class numbers are coming back to normal which is great as I was getting a bit worried. My next purchase for marketing is an A board. Do you have one? Does it work for you? I am on top of my game on social media but I don’t want to let the face to face promo slide. Flyer drops, door to door and local businesses, A boards, banners that don’t get stolen! On that note if anyone can invent a poster that gives an electric shock when someone tries to steal it I would be all over it!
There is some great music out there at the moment too which is great as finding new music can be as hit and miss as finding new bargain trainers!
As you may know I use Solid Sound music for my dance aerobics and step classes which I love and it is ppl, but I also use single tracks from itunes, or power music which is PPL free music for my zumba classes.
www.solidsoundmusic.com for awesome aerobics, step, combat, conditioning & streets classes etc
www.powermusic.com for great ppl free albums and individual tracks for zumba
Let me know what you think of the music and if you have any recommendations or suggestions I am all ears. I am currently getting my head around all the new licensing changes and how it will affect me so lookout for my update on that in my next #chat
I am soooo ready for an event now! IFS2013 in March was my last one and I have Fitness Fiesta in Hemsby Friday 19th to Sunday 21st April, near Great Yarmouth to look forward to. It is an awesome weekend with a huge variety of classes for you to try.
Check out www.fitnessfiesta.com the event is extremely reasonable and if you are a teacher you can gain so much from classes and as a fitness fanatic you will have so much fun!
I will be on tour September through to November this year with Masterclasses and Workshops. Dance Aerobics, Pre-choreographed Dance Aerobics and Dance Strength and Stretch. What do you think? Would this material be of use to you? Let me know before I make my final decision.
I am still working on a tour title so all suggestions from you creative types would be much appreciated.
Mission Clean & Lean goes GLOBAL! Say what?
How exciting is this! We are thrilled to announce our first American member for MCL. We were chuffed when our Europeans jumped on board but this is super exciting. It proved everyone, everywhere needs a little push with their diet and fitness.
We have been filming work-out moves for Families magazine again, a local prestigious magazine that is designed for busy mums and families. This is our 2nd feature and we have a third feature in May, so it feels like we really are full steam ahead. Let me hear say WHOOP!!!!!!
I am turning into a real foodie thanks to MCL. Right now I am really into Frittata, it consists of 8 whisked eggs, chopped mushrooms, spring onions, water cress, tarragon and coriander cooked in the frying pan then lastly put under the grill to brown it off. This lasts me a good few days and perfect for on the run.
Did you do the free workout I sent on the link? I love HIIT training as the work outs are quick and effective and that is what we need in this day and age. Always remember that some moves need modifying in adaptation to injuries or relative level of conditioning. Feel free to contact me on twitter @JoParryLeeds if you need some advice on exercise modification.
Have you checked out GYMCUBE? Did you sign up to your free 30 day trial?
Gymcube allows subscribers unlimited access to its extensive and diverse timetable of LIVE online classes.
First day filming for me LIVE was on Wednesday and it was ace, I loved it. A real buzz.
Thanks to those who tuned in and gave me your feedback on facebook, really appreciate it guys!
That’s all for now, I’m off to choose centre pieces for the wedding! Current stress levels moderate to high hahaha!
Be safe, keep up the good work!
Love Jo x
