How are ya? How was your weekend? I hope it was full of holiday joy & rest!
Especially because that is most what I am looking forward to….
Don’t worry, I totally loved my weekend, but I am completely stoked to really focus on the holidays now (these past 2 weeks were crazy with a capital C).
Now, about that weekend, let me recap it for ya real quick, mmmkay?!
First of all, CXWORX is an ahhhhhhmazing class. It will shred your core. WOW.
LesMills is the best in the fitness class market. It’s just true. They pour millions of dollars into research, training, choreography, music, safety, etc. & they really do care. And it SHOWS in the trainings & work we instructors must do to stay in that ‘status’ as a LM instructor.
As most of ya know, I just did the GRIT training last weekend, so yah, I was ready to bring it ON!
And, okay, I was a bit nervous & tired going into it.
My best friend all weekend long?
For the training (18 hours over 2 days), we had to know all 6 tracks! We were then told when we got there which track would be ‘ours’ for the weekend & had to completely know it all perfectly for our 3 presentations.
I was given track 1-Warm-Up. It was definitely less ‘physically’ challenging, but there came challenges in the coaching because of how many moves there are.
Release 9 is where we worked from (that means CX has been launched for about 2 years now–4 releases/year), and this release is touuuggghhh.
Les Mills CXWORX Instructor Training Recap
I packed my food.
Practiced a few more times, and then was off to the gym!
There were about 16 of us in the training + our trainer (Matty).
We did a master class first–and boy, HELLO core. OUCH. In a good way.
Then we did lots of learning, technique work, a bazillion planks, more workouts with the core specific moves, more learning, and finally our presentation #1 (we are filmed & given feedback).
By the end of the day I was exxhhhuuassstted.
And so very hungry. I don’t think I packed enough food. Boo.
Once I got home & had showered, I ate pretty much random stuff but things to fill me up good!
I ate breakfast pretty quickly because yah, I wanted to sleep an extra few minutes.
(every minute counts!)
Good ole oats with cinnamon & AB. I needed something that would STICK!
We went right into our presentation #2 that morning. I was tired, but I definitely tried hard to apply the feedback I got into that one.
It went awesome!
In the middle of the morning, me & some fellow BP instructors had to take a photo opp:
Ladies in Pink, baby!
Apparently I am not the only one who owns lots of pink fitness apparel?!?
We learned a lotttttt again that day. A lot.
And then more technique work. More planks. Even more hovers (planks on elbows). Even MORE side hovers.
I have elbow rug burns actually. Yah. Hardcore.
And then….even more hovers.
Catch a trend?!
Even though we were there for like forever, it was all SO fantastic & I learned so much, so it kind of did fly by too.
With the whole CXWORX group:
And with our amazing trainer, Matty
(we were in a rush- so it’s blurry):
Can’t get enough of Les Mills!!
I can’t wait to film my videos (and kinda get it over with….) & launch this bad boy in January! The members are going to looooovvee this program & the amazing results. Seriously. My core already feels different!
Have a GREAT day! <3
