LOL, not sure if the title fits, but i’m on an 80’s kick. you can tell by the abuse of Bon Jovi’s “Bad Medicine” blaring from my car. 🙂 Life has been crazy busy!!! There are few nights that I’m at home now and it seems with every week there has been more to do. I was asked to be in a wedding by a dear dear friend of mine. I was very touched and can’t wait to help her!!!
Oh! AND!!! I started teaching pole! Wow!!! I have wanted to teach since the day I walked in the door at Pole-licious and knew I was home.
Barbara put me through teacher “boot camp”. It was a short, intensive training and boy is it really intense. Teaching is very different than how I had first imagined. I have forgotten how hard beginning tricks are when you are a beginner and I defenitely didn’t realize the amount of steps there are to breaking them down…SAFELY!
My first class, I was a nervous wreck. Arrived at the studio super early, lit candles, put on some music to clean and set up to, I even wrote my entire floor workout down so I wouldn’t forget any step or ab or martini, goddess, etc. 🙂 To be honest, I wanted to cry I was so nervous. Nervous my workout wouldnt be hard enough. Nervous I wouldn’t teach tricks right. Nervous my music sucked. You name it. I was a wreck!!
I had a few students my first class and even a brand new girl! They were all thoroughly sweaty and breathless by the end of class and all danced out. my new girls gave me a hug and said they would be back. My veteran, also a friend I have been dancing with since my start at Pole-licious said “I rocked!” and she got a great workout. I left that night walking on air. I couldn’t believe how great I felt about myself after leaving. Especially having Miss Kitty Betsey pay me such a wonderful compliment.
Fast forward, I have been teaching for about 3 months now. I’ve become a little more relaxed and don’t come to class with a defined plan anymore. I have my regular students who come to see me and they all want my butt kicking, drenched in sweat workout and it makes me feel great to see my little hotties growing and nailing their tricks they have been working so hard on. To be a part of those magic “Holy s&*t!! I got it!!! Did you see that!!!! ” *happy dance* Those little moments and seeing the light in my students eyes are why I love teaching! each and every girl that comes through the door are experiencing something different that day. happy, sad, mad..whatever it may be, it’s my job to put a smile on their face and to let that tiger off it’s leash for 90 minutes. My students put a smile on my face and make my bad day go away. They would never know it by my face, but a few weeks ago, I came in feeling defeated from my day and from stress that has been plaguing me from the beginning of the year. After class i found myself smiling, even though I hadn’t tricked the entire class. It dawned on me, my students are my therapy. They bring out the best in me for those 90 minutes and for that I am deeply grateful to all you ladies!
Come see me Thursdays at 6:30PM if you haven’t tried a pole class. I promise it’s the best thing you will ever do for your body. we are a loving and supportive environment and that’s why Pole-licious will always be my home. ❤
