Body Combat

5 years ago I asked my instructor what he would suggest as a supplement to running. Since I really do not like biking or spinning and I had a past in Judo he suggested I tried Body Combat. At first, I was hesitant, particularly because my coordination and ability to follow choreography and dance routines were marginally above useless. Then I thought: It would be good to challenge myself, to move outside my comfort-zone, and I signed up for a couple of classes. Fitness wise I did not find it hard, even though it did take 1-2 full days before all muscles had recovered. After more than 500 classes, I am now beginning to get the hang of most of the choreography, and I enjoy the ability of setting the pace myself. Simply put: What you get out of a class depends on what you put into it.
In 2016 I passed the basic training as an Instructor and have since been fully certified. I was instructing a weekly class at Fitnessdk in Søborg until my life was devastated by the death of my son, Hans causing me to take a break from instructing.  I  was back instructing  for ½ year in FitnessDK Helsingør every other Sunday, but I have now realized that I can’t be confident to find within me the energy and drive the participants in the class should expect, and I have therefor taught my last class. I ended up teaching 60 classes as lead instructor. Given that I originally took the course just to achieve it with no attention of actually becoming an instructor, that’s not so bad 🙂
