Right now, it's the wild, wild West in this industry. So many certifications and organizations trying to manage those certified and uncertified and newly certified instructors, while simultaneously branding themselves as the leader in group fitness innovation. Who is advocating for the instructor? We must advocate for ourselves. We must agree on our own standards. We must work together to build a product that is 'as sold/ as delivered'
I want to know what you think. Please connect with me through social media or as a guest on the show.

We are thrilled to welcome as our guest, Sifu Ahmad Ptah El to Group Fitness Out The Box! If you listened to our show Tai Chi and professional group fitness instructors, you will appreciate why we're so excited to have Ahmad come on the show.
Ahmad has extensive training in the martial arts focusing on the internal martial arts for years. Today he talks to us about our professional lives and its costs to our health and wellness; and how we can increase our longevity, healthfully, in the field of professional fitness instructing.
What is tai chi?
Why is it beneficial (life-changing, in my case) for fitness professionals?
How to evaluate a tai chi program and instructor
What form should you learn?
What should you expect in terms of training and time commitment? (In our profession, that translates into "can I learn it in a weekend workshop?)

Awesome client handling questions tonight! We had several case studies that had to do with the psychology of teaching Pilates as well as the physiology. These ranged on topics from clients with sciatica to clients with uneven duet partners to working with doctors and much more. We also talked about what qualifies someone as a Pilates "elder" and incomplete imagery.
All about the SHOULDER! Tonight we delved into the anatomy and mechanics of the shoulder and then had some great case studies to work on application of the information. There were also a few quick questions at the end about using the term "certified" and online CEC options.
Tonight we dove deeply into the VMO (vastus medialis) and how to strengthen knees through Pilates. We also talked about incisional hernias and how transverse abdominus work could play a part in the healing process. We wrapped up with some thoughts on nightshade vegetables and fruits and how they can affect the body especially in cases of inflamation like arthritis.
In this episode, Georgette and Jesse answer listener questions and help improve your fitness business so you can spend more time earning great money and less time dealing with distractions.
"There are so many guru's, who do I listen to?"
"Do I need to create an alter-ego to be successful at this?"
A growing trend of free Facebook groups for trainers offering free workouts. There is a problem with them. They water-down real education and lack quality content.
Support groups for trainers that don't take care of themselves?
Shiny-object syndrome with personal trainers.

Yes, the Wii U is out and yes, no one is talking about the Wii console, and yes, I know you have one that is sadly collecting dust. Why else would you be tuning into this show?
PendaGoddess turned 60 years old and is still flying high and kicking butt. Virtual Fitness Wii FAB, a comprehensive program of Wii exergaming, is still evolving and refining techniques and training curricula.
I'm going to talk about some new games I purchased recently. Tune in to find out which ones or I guess you can just look at the slide show.
If this is your first time listening in, welcome. This show is geared to group fitness professionals and is an ongoing effort to inform and recruit fitness instructors to train in Wii exergaming.
