Highlights from the Weekend: High Heel Workout, Fitness Certification, Valentine’s Dance, and More Moving!

This weekend was very fun, productive, and a bit of a whirlwind!

My weekend started by teaching a group fitness class on Friday night that focused on how to safely wear high heels and how to strengthen and stretch the leg and core muscles that are important for high heel wear

My Saturday was then full of an AFAA Primary Group Fitness Workshop.  The workshop lasted the entire day.  We covered key elements of creating a group fitness class, anatomy, how to structure  a warm-up, and exercises for every part of the body before we completed the written and practical portions of the exam.  I feel like the test went well, but I won’t find out my results for 4-6 weeks…geez I hate waiting on stuff like that!

There were several students from Butler, my alma mater, attending this workshop, so we made sure to get a group picture!

Sunday was then spent putting our new apartment in order.  We finally have all of the furniture (we had been sleeping on an air mattress all week!!), now we just need to decorate and throw in some color and personality.
