Body Pump DVDs and CDs
Recently we have had several e-mails from Body Pump enthusiasts wanting to buy DVDs and/or CDs. These are available only if you are an instructor! We put alot of time, effort and money to become an instructor and to stay certified - it would be all in vain if anyone could purchase the releases. Besides - the best part about Body Pump is coming to the gym - being in a class with other members, motivating one another and just plain having fun! You can't do that in your living room! So please - no more requests for DVDs!

On to my next topic - Being a substitute instructor

I have been teaching the noon spot on Mon and Fri (used to do Wed too) for about three years. Craig joined me about 2 years ago. I have come to know the regulars very well. One member married Craig and I, I've had some to our home for our annual Christmas party, and even go to church with some. We are like family - you know - the warm and fuzzy feeling? Well, yesterday I subbed for someone else and I have done so in the past - but it hit me that I am very partial to my own class! This class was ok - just not alot of spunk. I tried to get them going but most were straight faced. My thinking is that they are like that because they dread having a sub! I did have a fea folks come up to me after class and said is was great but I just sensed they were tolerating me! Anyone else ever feel that way? Of course for me - I hate having to have someone sub my class! I'm very territorial! A while back our GFC wanted me to change time slots and I told them absolutley not! These were my friends! I could never give them up! Anyway - I would love to hear your thoughts.

Our classes have been really packed these past two weeks. At almost every Body Pump time slot we are having to turn people away! It's been great! But alas - I fear it will fade soon!

Survivor is coming to audition potential participants in our little town of Blacksburg! We're getting famous! Last month the TV show Exteme Home Makeover came and redid someones home! It was great!

Gotta run - keep pumpin'!
