ACE Overview Getting ready for 2020: How to keep your training fresh in the New Year


January is usually the time for health and exercise enthusiasts to pull out all stops. We spend the holidays thinking about refreshing our classes and providing participants with an enhanced experience. Then we hit the floor with our new ideas. While I am sure you have a fantastic trick or two up for the New Year, I strongly encourage you to make interim offers on the big changes you have. Instead, start the New Year by considering four easy ways to refresh classes that will be equally useful to you, your faithful front-end, and fresh-faced resolutions. Let's take a closer look.

  1. Description Deep Dive. Jump online or grab a copy of your group training schedule from the front desk. Carefully review the class descriptions you teach. Start the New Year by reminding yourself what participants think when they reach your class. Check what you have done and make sure you are now fulfilling the class promises as described in all publications or digital media. The review may ask for ideas to update earlier classics and to improve what is already on offer. The best way to provide a great experience is to make sure that what participants believe is delivered in reality.
  2. Clean and prepare the playlist. Health and exercise professionals are always looking for fresh stories to update their classes. The New Year is the perfect time to add a couple of rotation tables, hidden remixes and retro favorites. In addition to adding songs to carefully curated playlists, you might want to spend time making it easier to find and compress your music throughout the year. Consider spending some time reorganizing your library, cleaning up songs or playlists that are no longer working, and creating a system that lets you regularly review, categorize, and add new music to your arsenal. By spending a little time updating your music organization, you can free up a lot of time in the future and help you build the perfect playlists from week to week.
  3. Rethink, reuse, redistribute. Before you buy new equipment for classes (or ask your company to do so), take a quick look at the tools at your disposal. Maybe there is something you forgot, an alternative use for one of your current favorites, or a piece you never integrated because you are not sure how to use it best? Make a list of what's available and a plan to make the most of it. Find reliable sources of ideas when your equipment is new to you or when you feel a little stagnant. Remember, if this requires training, be sure to invest in appropriate education instead of looking for videos on YouTube. Then introduce your previous class plans by injecting a couple of new ideas here and there instead of a complete overhaul. For classes with multiple outfits, think about how you can be selective and mix and match to get the best results. Instead of throwing your kitchen sink into your classroom to try to make them interesting, you can get your bike equipment choices over time.
  4. Spruce up your script. If you teach a specific format for a while or face the same audience week after week, your script may get a bit stale. You may find that you use the same tips over and over again for improvement or motivation, standard introductions or closures, or even reused jokes. For the first month of the year, put 10 to 15 minutes ahead of each class to write a new introduction or introduction, one or two tips to improve the routines you use, and one or two new motivational phrases to throw in the mix. If you want to take it to the next level, record a voice in one of your classes. Play it and focus on the words you use. Identify the full words, tips, or phrases you want to stop using, as well as the ones you want to continue. If you do this in addition to your dreams of finding out new or old information in new ways, your lessons will be quickly updated.

While learning a new format, showing off new choreography or exercises and making all new playlists at the beginning of the year may seem like the best way to stimulate the crowd, but with the little snacks and subtle shifts described above, the potential is immediately affected by less stress. By keeping a lot of what you already do well and sprinkling it here and there with just a few updates, you can refresh your programming while remaining the confident, commanding, motivational leader your participants need and deserve.
