Hope this post finds you happy, well and full swing into the holidays
Couple of weekends past I had the pleasure and PAIN of completing Les Mills CXWORX training.
Two full days from 8am to around 5pm full of fun, planks and more.
Let me share with you what to expect if you plan to attend CXWORX training yourself.
Once you are all signed up you will receive and email with 2 tracks that are yours to learn and present that weekend. They give them to you in the order you have to present. First track day one, second track day two presented twice.
Okay so here is the deal, KNOW YOUR TRACK!!!! You are going to get a lot of form and technique information that you can apply but know your choreography and song through and through. Be sure to be ready to apply feedback to your presentation and show that you are a good listener and all about being a GREAT instructor.
We talked about the whats, and whys of dynamic core training. We went through the whole release several times. We planked, crunched and planked some more.
I was lucky enough to have the training at the gym I work for even more exciting that some of my girls from my past Les Mills Body Pump training where coming in from all over to join us!!! YAY!
TIPS FOR YOUR TRAINING:
Bring sweats and a sweatshirt or jacket as you go from hot to cold, sitting to working quite a bit and we realized that the sweatshirts where much needed as we sat an listened to our trainer.
Bring food! My AWESOME GFM provided drinks and snacks/fruit both days for the group. But don’t count on that as this has been the only training I have attended that did so. Fruit, protein, water and for me a HUGE morning coffee
Make sure you have ALL your paperwork, choreography notes and forms with you. As well as your music and device to listen to. Many brought laptop or tablets to watch the actual video as they practiced.
Get enough rest, food and RELAX!!!
Here is the deal, you are going to get a certain pass at the end of the weekend. No matter how you do you are going to have time to practice plenty before you have to send in your taping of the whole release and your teaching it to a class. So do not feel like this is life or death if your form is not perfect, you miss a cue or coaching term. What you DO need to take away from this weekend is any and all feedback from your instructor. THEY KNOW THEIR S@#! to put it lightly
So if trainer “Bob” said you need to work on your hover…by golly you betta work on it They want you to be great instructors and to be able to teach an awesome challenging class that anyone can come into and get a great workout by following your spot on instruction. With CXWORX it is so VERY important that you learn short, sweet and to the point instruction. We Body Combat instructors tend to talk A LOT, and Body Pump maybe a bit less, but in CXWORX you are on the ground in many tracks and not able to make that eye contact so when you cue you have to be precise. ITS AWESOME! I tell you I love it to bits. YES it is frrrrakin hard and boy I was smashed at the end of day two but I loved every minute of it.
So learn your tracks, bring your papers and music, and snack and last but not least HAVE FUN!!!!!
Oh and in case your wondering how I did
That means I done good y’all!!!
See you all soon, have a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS!!!
