  • 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.

Best Practices

  • 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.



  • Be clear and concise

  • Talk through the next move 20 seconds before

  • Counts:

    • “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
