I’ve been doing this hip-hop fitness thing for a while now. It’s definitely has its fair share of rewards as well as struggles. One of the struggles that we as fitness professionals encounter is burnout.
This phenomenon occurs more often than not due to the shear fact that you have to give so much of yourself and energy (that’s only if you are doing your job right and have the right reasons as to why you are doing this in the first place). Every once in a while though, you will come across moments where it will re-energize you. This message I received recently is one of those priceless moments:
Hi Mike- I started going to your class about 2 months ago and it has changed my life. For the first time in my life I look forward to working out and I’m seeing a huge difference in my fitness level. I also have serious health issues and you’re class is literally saving my life. I had a doctor’s appointment this morning and for the first time in a very long time my health is great. Thank you for bringing Hip Hop Fitness to Columbus! I’ll be at your 6:30 p.m. class this evening. -Janel
