The women's group of our church is called the Relief Society. Each RS comes up with its own mini-"clubs" to cater to the interest groups of the women in the congregation. As such, the leadership are constantly looking for new groups to get women involved. On the most recent survey, I wrote down that I would be interested in a weekly fitness club where the women get together and take turns teaching. I thought, even if it is an exercise video, that will be better than sitting at home!
The next question read, "Would you be willing to teach?" I felt like, "Well, I better be willing to do it if it is my idea." A few months ago, I was asked if I would, indeed, teach the class (at least the first time). I said yes, again, trying to be a good sport and support my own idea. I hoped when I got home from Christmas break that it would be forgotten. On the contrary, it has now been announced. So, I am stuck.
I have contemplated just teaching my first SCUBA class and pretending we are underwater. Unfortunately, even if I had some imaginative classmates who would buy it, it wouldn't be very good exercise. I am a little worried about having enough to do for a full 45-60 minute block. I am planning to focus on strength training--squats, lunges, push-ups, etc. I hope I don't run out of ideas..."Umm, squats again? Oh, you have a charlie horse?"
Also, I just don't think I'm PEPPY. Isn't that a requirement? Richard Simmons is definately peppy, even as a dude. I'm not sure I can do the, "...and one, and two,.. three, ..four....feel the burn ladies!" And, I'll probably feel the burn more than anyone else.
Lastly, they announced it as "pregnancy friendly." I don't know what is or isn't friendly to the fabrication of a fetus, and I definately don't want to send any women into labor.
Any suggestions anyone? What are your favorite exercises (I don't think I have access to weights or anything like that)? Do you have any music that gets your heart pumping? How can I prevent a pre-term birth?
I'm sweating already!
