Confession: I am a rogue instructor. Rogue meaning 'a person who causes trouble in a playful way. So, don't take me too seriously as I break all the rules, create my own way, do my own thing and still want to play with others.
If you are a rogue or wannabe rogue instructor this is the show for you. In fact, I want you on my show! Let's talk about the path less traveled. Let's talk about the business of group fitness and innovative approaches for the 21st century. Nothing is out of bounds. What are you doing? What are you teaching? How are you creating your own fitness format? Developing a following? Training instructors? Getting paid?
You can chose an alias. Mine is Rogue for this show. You can interact with me on Facebook by liking MindBody Group Fitness Arts page. Let me know what you think. And if you want to be a guest on my show, please contact me.

Join me, Rogue Instructor, as I chat about various boutique formats. Boutique formats are not yet widely available. Why? Because there usually is only one instructor who knows how to teach it and that would be the creator of the format.
Rhythm Walking is one of the boutique formats discussed today, because it happens to be created by me. Check it out and let me know what you think.
While listening to the show I hope you are thinking about some good advice to offer me. I'd love your input, whatever your background, but especially if you're a professional group fitness instructor.
Do you have a new fitness format? We want to hear about it. Yes, you can be a guest on my show; I'd love to interview you! It's pretty easy to do. Just call in on the phone number and we'll chat live.

When I got into the business of Group Fitness, believe me, I still had a 9 to 5 job. It just evolved from being 'just for the fun of it' to 'making Group Fitness a career and business'. And what are the choices now for the Group Fitness Professional Instructor in 2011 and beyond? What do you want them to be? Personally, to continue as a Group Fitness Professional Instructor as I age, I have designed a model I tailored to feet my needs. It had to work with where I am in my life now - physically for sure. I've given up the kickboxing and traded in the salsaerobics for Tai Chi and Qigong. And the Wii, of course. I've been suffering from the little known BuBS - Beat up Body Syndrome. I hurt all over all the time, most days. I remember one of my clients saying to me, "I live in pain" and I heard "I live in Payne." And I'm thinking "Illinois, where is Payne" and almost asked before I realized what she was really saying. Hahaha! I don't live in pain, I generally release it and listen to my body more carefully. Pain does get your attention, doesn't it? But you know, you don't have to push past or through pain. That's definitely how I did it and I admit to doing it the HARD way! Now, I'm ready to do it the fun and collaborative way. Not only is it time for a new fitness model, but a new business model for the business of fitness. Join in the discussion. Call or chat in the chat room.
The Group Fitness industry is in flux at this very moment. So much energy is flowing. Did you catch passionate and energetic Annamarie on Tuesday? She has graciously agreed to be Tuesdays Guest Host.

I'd love to hear about your fitness journey, how it has transformed you and your lifestyle, what your passion is, what your mission is and all that stuff.
