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 should you expect in terms of training and time commitment? (In our profession, that translates into "can I learn it in a weekend workshop?)

Did you know that besides this radio show, the Rogue Instructor (aka PendaGoddess) hosts another BTR show as well? It's called Virtual Fitness Wii FAB (For Absolute Beginners) and is where I first got started on BlogTalk Radio.
Virtual Fitness Wii FAB was created to discuss Wii exergaming and how fitness professionals could use this new format. Some of the shows really focussed on the fitness industry, and this is one of them. So I'm just moving them over here in case you missed those shows over there.
Gail is still going strong and is working in the fitness industry. This year she completed another Peachtree Road Race; number 21. We're planning to do a follow up show to discuss more industry insights. There are plenty of tips from Gail is this interview so make sure you take some notes.
"You must constantly reinvent yourself to remain viable"
Attention hard-core Professional Group Fitness Instructors (PGFI)
There may come a time in your fitness life when you have to slow down. Yes, YOU! Even Jack LaLanne eventually slowed down and he was a persistant and dedicated exerciser. Perhaps, for many of you, it is a challenge to slow down and the idea even makes you uncomfortable.
Tai Chi changed my life
My personal journey, as first a professional group fitness instructor (someone whose primary source of income is teaching group fitness classes), then, evenutally, becoming a tai chi instructor, has inspired me to share my story with other GFPI.
The take-away here is that PGFIs who begin to study and practice this internal martial arts will benefit tremedously. It can also be another source of income targeting the expanding demand in the fitness industry for elder-friendly exercise.

In this episode Gurjot Singh and Sifu Lyndon Oudsten will be discussing the nuances of internal mechanics as they exist in wing chun; a style not often thought of as internal.
Lyndon Oudsten is a life long student of Pencak silat, wing chun, and Shaolin. Although he has 30 years of experience training in the arts his moto serves as motivation for lifelong growth: "I will never stop learning and consider myself to be an eternal student. The more I know, the more I realise that I only know little."
From age 16 to 30, Sifu Oudsten had a healthy career in mma, boxing, and kickboxing matches. However, around age 30 he realized that his years of fighting had left his body battered. It was at this time he decided to focus on Kung Fu for its practices of health and longevity in addition to being a fighting art.
His journey would take him around the world studying with Wing Chun masters:
"I found wing chun, but it wasnt what I expected at first, then I met GM Greg Yau from San Francisco, he is a cousin of 2 direct Ip Man students. GM Chris and Stanley Chan, he taught me a lot about the internals and about applied quantum fysics, in which he is an expert and pioneer. Later I met Sifu Michael Choi, from the Ip Ching and Gary Lam lineage who has taught me Wing Chun system for fighting. Most time I spend training under Choi Sifu, who is in my eyes one of the best Wing Chun fighters in the world."
More recently he was invited to train in Malasia under Master Yap Boh Heong from the 5 Ancestors Fist Wuzu of GM Chee Kim Thong. He currently teaches in his school in the Netherlands.
