“Growth comes at the point of resistance. We learn by pushing ourselves and finding what really lies at the outer reaches of our abilities.” -Josh Waitzkin
Last month I was taking my normal Thursday night Tae Bo® Fitness class at the YMCA and I heard that my teacher would be holding a Basic Certification Camp for anyone interested in becoming a Tae Bo® Fitness Instructor, so I decided to look into this a bit more.
I’m an avid fitness enthusiast and take Tae Bo® Fitness classes multiple times a week but I was a bit hesitant at the thought of 8 full hours of my physical agility being tested. I found that at www.TaeBo.com, I could attend the Certification Camp and take the “Certification Camp Challenge” for half the price of the full Certification Camp giving me the opportunity to see if I am actually capable of completing this course. I decided if I was capable of completing the 8 hour course, I would purchase the Certification Camp Challenge Upgrade and become a Certified Tae Bo® Fitness Instructor.
It was such a great opportunity to push myself beyond my limits, I had no idea I had all that in me. You know that point where you think I need a break or I’m going to die? Well, we hit that point 3 different times throughout the day and guess what… We survived becoming stronger mentally, physically and emotionally!
I ended up purchasing the Certification Camp Challenge Upgrade at www.TaeBo.com and successfully completed the physical training as well as the written exam. Today I am teaching and taking my love for Tae Bo® Fitness to the next level!
Thanks to Tae Bo® Fitness and their Certification Program, I have a new found understanding of the phrase “mind over matter” and have such an awesome time pushing my students beyond their limits. Helping my students realize their capabilities the same way that my Elite Instructor helped me realize mine has been an overwhelming experience that is beyond words and something we all should be so lucky to encounter.
