Submitting my assessment video
I passed Initial Module Training. Wahoo! And now its onto submitting my assessment video. I have 8 weeks to get it done. It sounds scary but but last weekend, we were given loads of advice about how to get it done. I’m still a bit nervous, but for those of you thinking about doing it, I’ve summed up some of the advice I was given.
- Practice practice practice.
I plan to attend as many LES MILLS GRIT™ classes as I can so I know my tracks inside out. I am currently learning two tracks per week by watching the masterclass video and taking notes from the choreography.
- Teach Team
I plan to reach out to my local Tribe Coach who can put me in touch with other Instructors in the area. I really want to teach team so I can learn from other Instructors, as well as get some practice under my belt. Its less scary when you’ve got someone doing it with you, and I hope to get more confidence. I’m lucky because there are lots of other Instructors around the Les Mills office I can chat to, and lots of willing participants to get involved! You can see the Tribe Coaches in your area here.
- Get your check list ready
I’ve been told that you need to follow a few guidelines:
- Film from a 45-degree angle
- Make sure your whole body and equipment can ben seem
- Check music and sound beforehand
- Scan the room with the camera to show participants
It sounds pretty clear, right?
- Prepare as soon as possible
While the training is still fresh in my mind I plan to start putting what I learnt into practice immediately. Well, after 1 day off. It was an entire weekend of burpees and press ups after all!
- Join the Les Mills Facebook group
There’s a whole Tribe of Instructors out there ready to offer their guidance. If you put a question out into the group, you’re usually met with lots of friendly answers. Potential Instructors can join here.
