I’ve been teaching. And developing my skills. Working on my technique.
But I’ve been radio silent on my progress as I waited.
Back in January I made it a semi-private goal to become a BodyStep instructor. I wasn’t sure if I was just grasping at straws, or if I’d be plagued with too much doubt to go through with it.
But through a combination of support from Dan and my best gym friend, Kim, and a lot of determination and practice, I made it through initial training, team teaching, peer assessment, and finally a video assessment to acheive this certification.
I almost don’t even recognize the girl I was back in January. Through the work I did to acheive this certificate, I didn’t just grow stronger and fitter. I changed how I saw challenges and set backs and things that used to make me quake don’t even register. When I think about something I want to do, I don’t see roadblocks and hurdles anymore. I see fun, an adventure. And I’m sure I can do it.
Pst…I’m planning a post (or maybe a couple of posts) detailing how I went about earning my certification. If you have any questions for me, please leave them in the comments, and I’ll work those answers in those posts. Thanks!
