As group fitness instructors we teach potentially hundreds of participants every week, and that means that things can and will go wrong. Some obstacles are self-created, and some occur simply because we’re dealing with people of all ages, abilities, and personalities. This week, Angie shares some mistakes, challenges, and embarrassing moments fellow instructors have faced. Check it out for a few laughs, and more importantly what they learned and how those situations proved to be opportunities for growth.
