CONFIDENTIAL & PRIVILEGED
Welcome - Introduce yourself. Ask the class if there is anyone who has taken less than 5 classes and any injuries, then pay particular attention to those who are newer / who have injuries.
Equipment - walk through the machine for Newbies.
Demo - demo any new moves before class.
Your energy is contagious! Be positive & encouraging.
Use each client's name at least once during class.
Give a word of encouragement, advice or praise to each client at least once during class.
Touch/adjust each new client at least 3x during class.
At the end of class take a moment to THANK the class for coming to X-CORE, and offer to answer any questions.
If you have any new clients (green stars), approach them personally after class to check in and answer questions.
Gauge your clients - offer modifications if you see people falling out of moves. Offer advanced moves for experienced clients.
Routines should be fluid. That means transitions should be seamless and moves should make sense. Rule of thumb: If you’ve never done it before yourself, then don’t teach it.
Encourage the class. Try to make at least one positive call out to each individual during class.
Adjust and correct form.
Always offer modifications or advanced moves.
Deliver strong cueing. Let the class know what’s coming up - give cues at least 20 seconds before the next move. Demo the next move on a machine if there is a free one. If there isn’t a free machine, use someone as an example.
Always demo the move in front of the class, not behind the class.
do more than 2 moves at the back for Basics classes. Use good judgement.
make negative callouts into the mic. Walk up to the client, move the mic away from the face and correct them.
speak negatively about your team.
teach a move you haven’t tried yourself.
CUES & MUSIC
Be clear and concise
Talk through the next move 20 seconds before
“1, 2, 3, 4” when giving pace
“4, 3, 2, 1” as a countdown to the next move
Good reminder cues:
“Engage the core” - applies to every move
“Chin off your chest, long spine” - applies to every move
“Keep your knee over your ankle” - applies to lunges
“Relax your neck and shoulders” - applies to arm moves
Music should be upbeat
Try to avoid profanity
Try to avoid R.Kelly
Don’t turn it so loud the class can’t hear you
