Thank you fitmob for featuring my profile as the Mob Crush Monday trainer on the Mob Blog! Click here to read the post:
Last September, I had just moved to Marin County from Pasadena and gratefully began my Fall teaching schedule with only 2 classes for Bay Club Marin and Mill Valley Community Center. Four months later in January, that number went up to 8 classes when I joined Marin Power Yoga, and now exactly one year later, I am ecstatic that I will be teaching a total of 13 classes and joining the fitmob team!!!
Fitmob (www.fitmob.com) launched in San Francisco less than a year ago and brought a variety of fitness classes to the community, meeting in both indoor and outdoor locations such as parks or even clubs. The idea is that students can look for classes they want through their fitmob app and pay as they go, instead of committing to something like a gym membership. In fact, the more classes students take per week, the cheaper it is per class!
Fitmob was so successful they decided to branch out to Marin and see if the same business model will be just as popular somewhere other than the city. They are doing a full Marin launch starting this week and I am thrilled to be joining the fitmob team as a Mob Leader! I will be teaching:
* A barefoot cardio and dance conditioning workout called “BodyFIT 360” created by my mentor, Michelle Dozois, Fridays at 8:30am in the Mill Valley Aquatics & Fitness Center.
* A Gentle Vinyasa Yoga class every Wednesday at 12:15pm in the Mill Valley Aquatics & Fitness Center.
In addition to my new fitmob classes, I will be adding on 4 more classes at Marin Power Yoga on Tuesdays and Thursdays:
* 9:30am – BodyFIT 360 by Michelle Dozois
* 10:45am – Yin Yang Yoga that uses the wall and lots of yummy props!
Grateful doesn’t even sum it up… Since I began teaching fitness in 2005, I took whatever opportunities I got and found myself saying “Yes!” to classes I wasn’t comfortable leading or saying “Yes!” to classes way early in the morning or way late in the night. During the worst schedule line-up, I would leave the house at 6am and get home at 10pm teaching a scattered 4 classes in between those 16 hours, and that was also with a 6-month old!!!
Since moving to Marin a year ago, I decided to prioritize my family first and learn to say “No,” which is very challenging for me to do. I decided only to take opportunities that fall within my daughter’s preschool schedule after I drop her off and before I pick her up. Somehow, some way, over this past year everything has fallen right into place and I am truly humbled. Please check out: “Classes” to see my full teaching schedule starting this week.
