of faith: Became a coach to help people live their best lives, completed
intense workout programs that I would have never attempted before, and learned
that I am stronger and more resilient than I ever thought. So why not take
another flying leap and sign up to be a CIZE Live instructor. Well, that’s
exactly what I did.
|Right before the start of it all|
You all know that I love CIZE! I cannot sing its praises
enough, but I’ll try. It is such an amazing way to tone, tighten and have fun.
I won’t call it exercise, because it’s not. It’s dancing. You really dance like
music video dance, and work up a major sweat while doing it. So when I saw that
that Beachbody had a certification program, I jumped at the chance. I wanted to
get certified at our annual Summit in July, but that was not in the cards. Where
there is a will, there is a way. I searched and found a class 40 minutes away from
my house. Sold.
hoping that I would not run into any accidents or road closures along the way.
I made it there in one peace and on time and came face to face with a friend
and idol in my head, Tania Baron.
Machine.” She would be my CIZE Instructor. I die. I would be learning from the
same person who helped develop the actual program with Shaun T. I was one
degree away from one of my fitness heroes. Swoon and pass out. I really didn’t
know what I was getting myself into and a majority of the class didn’t either. Would
there be a test at the end? Would I have to audition in front of Tania? Hopefully
not because I would have peed my pants. After some general housekeeping and
introductions, it was time to work.
and the rest of the class was insane. I had a complete sweaty blast. I wanted
to do it all over again after I caught my breathe. Even though I missed a
couple of steps here and there, I was starting to get it. We had lunch and like
the rest of the class, I lost it. How can you forget an hour’s worth of work in
30 minutes? From experience, it is pretty easy to do. But not to worry, Tania gave
us a refresher course and we were then broken up into smaller groups to
practice how to cue the moves.
Just imagine telling people
the next move two beats before they do it, while trying to remember the move
itself. Ridic hard. But no one complained if someone made a mistake. We helped
each other through it and by the end I kinda got. We then took turns breaking
down 8 counts and teaching them to our group. Again, everyone was super helpful
which helped this total novice shake of some nerves and begin to build up
|How fun does this look? Totes? Because it was!|
And before we knew it, class was over and we were certified
to teach! Tania was gracious enough to stay behind for pictures. It was pretty
cool that Shaun T said hi to us through a text (squeal).
now certified to teach a class. What??? Never in a million years did I think
that was even an option. SMH that is insane. But true.

You never know what you are capable of until you go out
there and CIZE it up.
