Body Combat

Some years ago while training to run a marathon, I asked my fitness trainer what he would suggest as a supplement to running. Since I really do not like biking or spinning and I had some history doing 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 fun to challenge myself, to move outside my comfort-zone, so 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. Today, after more than 660 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 entirely 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 Fitness.dk in Søborg when 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 Fitness.dk Helsingør every other Sunday, but I eventually realized that I’m not confident to find within me the energy and drive the participants in a class can rightfully 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 for the achievement  with no attention of actually becoming an instructor, that’s not so bad 🙂
