MWFF (married white fit female, ha!) seeking her inner aggression – yes, that would be me.
I don’t know what it is but I CANNOT channel the aggressive side of my personality for Kick no matter what I do. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want to show my fellow Kick-ers and my fitness director that I can embody all that it is to be a Group Kick instructor.
Choreography – check.
Badass Kick gear – check (Lulu’s are hot, just need a bandanna to complete the get-up and I’ll be golden).
Technique – half check (getting there but still needs some work).
Cueing – half check (I can cue the moves but aggression, where are youuuuu?).
Ask anyone – I definitely have an aggressive side to my personality. Just cross me once or twice and you’ll see it (having no patience is probably a big factor there, oops). So why, oh why, can’t I channel that for a good purpose like Kick? I’m really hoping that now that the other pieces (above) are coming together, that the personality and aggression will come naturally. The problem? It’s just 17 days — yes, DAYS — until the launch. That “come naturally” piece better hurry up or I’ll be in trouble.
As I said before, failure is not an option for me. I go into challenges with both feet and don’t give up until I’ve succeeded. I’m definitely not giving up on Kick — we’ve all come so far, and it’s been an incredible experience. My husband totally made me blush on Sunday when I came home from GNI. He hadn’t seen me all day (and thus hadn’t seen my outfit) and for some reason, thought I looked especially fit and wasn’t afraid to tell me how “skinny minnie” I was (his words, not mine!). It was really sweet. But what was sweeter? That he said how proud he was of me. He reminded me that just six weeks (give or take) or so ago, I had never set foot in a Kick class before, let alone taught a group fitness class before in my life. Up until a year or so ago, I hadn’t taken any group fitness classes other than those done with Cathe in the privacy of my own home. When he put it all into perspective, coupled with all of the effort and practice put into Kick, I ‘spose it really is no small feat what we’ve managed to accomplish so far.
We’re almost there, it’s all the fine-tuning that needs to happen…and I’m trying to have that faith that it will happen…in 17 days or less. 😉
If ya’ll have any tips for how to find that aggression (even if I have to fake it until I make it), do tell!! And *maybe*, just *maybe* I’ll post a video clip of one of our classes for you all to see. Just let me get through the launch first!
