Les Mills launch season here in the Philippines is almost over, and all the clubs have changed over to the new releases for the next four weeks, at least.
A year ago I never imagined I would have two fantastic jobs — as a group exercise instructor, and as a writer. I never even thought that I’d have regular classes at this point. My main goal for last year was just to cover enough classes in BODYBALANCE to pay off my training fee. Starting next week I’ll have five Jam classes and three Balance classes under my name regularly.
- Mondays: 6pm BODYBALANCE (Fairview), 8pm BODYJAM (Fairview)
- Tuesdays: 8:30am BODYJAM (Metro East), 5:45pm BODYJAM (Eastwood), 7:45pm BODYBALANCE (Eastwood)
- Wednesdays: 6:30am BODYJAM (Eastwood), 7:30am BODYBALANCE (Eastwood)
- Fridays: 11am BODYJAM (Eastwood)
Last May I was about to resign from my 9-to-6 job, ready to pursue my dream of writing in the media. Little did I realize that my teaching at the gym, which I thought I’d do only on the side, would become what enables me to pursue my passion for traveling and writing. It’s the freedom of time (just one hour per class!) that allows me to head off to the Living Asia Channel office in Makati to do research, or attend pre-production meetings, or write scripts. It’s the financial structure (if you do more classes, you get paid accordingly) that allows me to work intensively for several weeks, then pack up and leave for a six-day trip with the channel.
Right now I just feel so thankful that God’s given me this lifestyle. I’m still trying to strike a balance between the two jobs, but every change that He’s brought into my life has always been for the better.
