    Guest: Lady G talks about fitness and house music

    in Fitness

    House music is what the world and group fitness needs.


    Why? Because music is the key of movement. Popular fitness formats depend on the music to get people up and grooving; and for many instructors, music is our lifeline to a great class experience.  


    What is house music? Well there are many interpretations. Listen to the mix playing in the background. No, these mixes do not use 32-count phrasing or 8-count blocks as in professionally-mixed aerobic music. Yet, these mixes naturally flow this type of rhythmic musical phrasing making it ideal for instructor cueing.  


    Lady G is our special guest because she is one of the few that has experienced the fusion of house music and fitness in the form of Rhythm Walking. Rhythm Walking is fueled by house music. 


    Lady G is also a fixture of the Atlanta house music scene and is dedicated to spreading the love of house music far and wide. She also walks her talk, always out on the dance floor. Listen in while she talks about the power of house music.

    Tai Chi as a group fitness class

    in Fitness

    Greetings Group Fitness Instructor peeps!


    As I finished my tai chi practice this morning, I was inspired to record this show. 


    What's MindBody fitness? What does that even mean? I describe how I interpret MindBody fitness and why it is important that GFIs pay attention to this essential healing practice.


    Questions explored include:


    How do we adapt a tai chi class successfully to a group fitness format?


    How do instructors create a standard format for teaching tai chi to students


    Is tai chi for fighting or healing in the group fitness arena?


    Can fitness instructors learn to mimic martial arts forms effectively?


    Do instructors need to know the martial (fighting) aspects of tai chi to teach it?


    How long will it take before you can start teaching a tai chi class?


    How is a tai chi class structured for a 30-minute session?


    And more....


    You can connect to me on my Facebook page as MindBody Group Fitness Arts Foundation.
