I taught a sub class this weekend, and I got overall a good review from everyone but one woman said it was “slow.” She said I gave excellent cues, and the music was great, but the class was slow. She told the front desk that when they asked how the class was, so I really can’t figure out what she meant. I know everyone has different styles of teaching and does better as a student with certain styles of teaching, but I just don’t really understand what she meant by that. My music is usually quick unless we’re doing a climb of some sorts where I take the BPM’s down to try to match the RPM’s for a climb. Any input from other instructors/students would be great on this!
1. Deadmau5, Overdraft (4:30): Seeing Deadmau5 tomorrow night at the House of Blues in Boston, and it might be the best show I’ve ever seen. Prematurely saying that, but it will deem true.
2. Sam Adams, Some Chordz (2:38): I used this during the sub class on Saturday, but it’s great. Still warming up here, and again, this is Deadmau5’s “Some Chords” with Sammy Adams rapping over it.
3. Britney Spears, Toxic (3:20): Jumps during the chorus! Hey Brit; it’s been a while.
4. Ellie Goulding, Under the Sheets (Jakwob Remix) (4:27): I’ve used this one before too.. Great for rolling hills. I have a girl crush on Ellie.
5. LMFAO, Sexy and I know It (3:23): Some sprints here during the chorus after he sings “I’m Sexy and I know it”.
6. Girl Talk, Hand Clap (1:54): Little remix here. Sort of took this song for a filler, but it’s got Gwen Stefani’s Holla Back Girl
7. Pretty Lights, Electro Cali (7:43): Great song for a climb.
8. Cascada, What Hurts the Most (Radio Mix) (3:42): Sprints during the chorus.
9. Maroon 5, Moves Like Jagger (Remix) ft. Mac Miller and Christina Aguileria (3:47): Jumps during the chorus on a 4 count!
10. Deadmau5, Raise Your Weapon ft. Greta Svabo Bech (8:23): Amazing climb song.
11. Florence and the Machine, Shake It Out (Benny Benassi Remix) (5:36): Great song for sprints at 2:02, 2:15 and 4:19 (if I can remember correctly).
12. The Rolling Stones, Beast of Burden (4:25): Cooling it down meow.
Thanks for coming, and if you have any input on a “slow” class… let me know! (Hi Beth!)
