After every class at IFS everyone was saying..

“What music was that?”
“ I need some new music”
“What music do you recommend”

So here are my current favs & the tunes
I chose for my  IFS presentations.

All of these mixes are by Pure Energy and can be
found on the Pure Energy Website.

Order on CD or Download to your phone, ipad
or lap top instantly.

Funky Fitness Pilates Classes

Uptown Funked 120 – 128bpm

For my Fitness Pilates Evolution session
I used Uptown Funk.
This has a
120 bpm and all vocals to go with a more up tempo, funky
style of Pilates. Tracks ranging from Michael Jackson
to Prince & lots of 80/90’s singalong funk tracks.

 

 

HILO / Conditioning / Fast Stepping

Dance Overdrive 138 – 145 Bpm

Lots of old skool dance classics tracks set
to a really motivating beat.
I’ve been using this for HiLo & Step workouts and it’s been
going down a storm. Nice mix of old skool
favourites

Traditional Pilates Classes.

Mind Body 20

One of my all time favorite mixes for more
classic Fitness Pilates workouts.
Lots of ballads and tracks that everyone
knows and can enjoy.

I used this for my Mix and Match Fitness Pilates
Class at IFS.

HIIT Workouts

Conditioning & Intervals 2 by Katie Bulmer Cook

Really fab intervals and HIIT training timings with rocking
tracks this mix could be heard being played in so many
classes at IFS. Includes Superset intervals & interval mash ups.

HIIT Volume 5

This has to be my personal fav of the HIIT series.
I love the Accumulator mix on the B side.

Head over to the Pure Energy Digital website &
have a listen but these are a highly recommended
mixes that I know you will LOVE!

The International
Fitness Showcase 2015 ROCKED!

If you love your Group X then this
weekend is just a total
blinder.

 

SO Inspiring. Motivating & Uplifting.

Rammed freestyle classes every where you looked.

It was definitely the best IFS to date & the busiest.

I’m just editing a phone full of video clips
& pictures to bring you a flavor of the
weekend, I’ll post this up on my Facebook
& social media platforms shortly.

There was SO much going on
I can barely type about it fast enough…

Here are my quick highlights from the weekend.

*Packed & buzzing
sessions for PiYo, Insanity & Clubbercise

*ALL the Step classes were full to the wrafters
Many people saying, there are no Step classes
where they live so made the
most of them at IFS.

*Conditioning & HIIT sessions – so popular all
filled to capacity. Tons of new ideas for your
HIIT sessions.

*Abs & Core Sessions very popular with
Kelly Reed – Banks Shrink & Crunch classes PLUS
Katie Bulmer Cooke rocked her AB-Prentice Workout.

* In my Fitness Pilates classes you could not
squeeze another body into the room, it was sardine
central.

I taught 3 very different FP classes including
FP Evolution. Mix and Match FP & HIIT FP

* I personally LOVED Ceri Hannons
Playful Movement
class – Very different and innovative with
tons of fresh exercises & movement patterns.

*Jayne Nicholls won the
Outstanding Contribution To Fitness
Award Plus Jayne’s FFY classes all super popular.

*Fitsteps Nathalie Lowe & Ian Waite taught
an immaculate class that was beautiful to watch.

* And of course I cannot fail to mention the effervescent
CHICO of X Factor Chico time!

*Chico taught his new Block Fitness class &
entertained us
all at the Gala dinner.
He is such a nice guy.

*Helen Carpenter-Waters presenting for the 1st Time
at IFS rocked it as always with her DYBO sessions.

*Richard Callender taught a PACKED & sweaty
VIIT Project.

*Steve Watsons unmissable step classes as
always was fantastic,
great atmosphere & sooo busy.

* KIm Ingleby won PT of the YEAR with
up & coming PT & KSFL
Entrepreneur
Jay Banks also nominated for this
prestigious & highly competitive
award.

There was so much going on
proving that
Group X , FREESTYLE
& The Fitness Industry keeps on going
from strength to strength.

The Winter Gardens gets
better every year as Blackpool
council continue the restoration project.
The building is so stunning
& the rooms beautiful to teach in.

Just a wonderful weekend of
fitness & positivity.

I cannot recommend it highly enough.

PLUS was fab to see
so many C2GO’ers & KSFL’ers.

By the end of yesterday I was all talked out
but buzzing with tons of new ideas…Yeah!

You can book for next YEAR NOW at the super low price.
Got to the Chrysalis Website for next years details.

Check out the Facebook.com/Choreographytogo
page for videos and clips of the event.\

Massive thanks to the Team Chrysalis
Steve, Sophie, Ceri, Lydia, Michelle,
& Steve for a flawless event.

me with the best music &
support.

Have a wonderful Monday

Be Bold Motivational

RachelLHolmes : March 2, 2015 9:02 am : Blog, Newsletter

 Unsaved Preview Document

Guess what….

It really & truly doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.

I reckon this is the NUMBER 1 thing that holds us back from reaching our true potential.

That BIG idea you have, but afraid to start working on it….

Starting that online fitness business you have always wanted to but feel insecure about shouting about it on social media…..

Organising you own event and presenting at YOUR event……

It could be the diet or lifestyle your choose to follow, that rattles other people, so you bow down to peer pressure..

Right.

Stop.

Back up.

Today let’s all BE BOLD.

 

The key to a shitty life is to focus on what real (or imaginary) folk think about what you are doing.

Do your own thing.
Paddle your own canoe.

Hang about & join forces with positive people who are want to the same as you.

People who lift you up & inspire you to reach higher.

Make a bigger impact today & don’t think about what anyone else says.
Get on with your destiny.

Be BOLD.

Happy Monday

Love Rachel x

To Teach Is To Learn – Sunday Motivational

Unsaved Preview Document

To Teach is To Learn

For the last 3 days days I’ve been studying with Phil Richards on a nutrition & HIIT course.

It’s been brilliant.

I’ve got so many ideas & I’m feeling mega inspired.

I couldn’t sleep last night just thinking about all the potential this new info holds.

It’s Day 3 today & I’ll rushing back home to unleash new ideas & plans.

It excites me SO MUCH to put this new knowledge into practice.

By harnessing the power of Social Media & the Internet we can connect, help, teach, inspire, motivate & serve SO MANY more people with the very latest research & information.

There is NO better & more fulfilling experience than teaching & sharing.

Don’t you agree?

It blows my mind just how MUCH more there is to go at in the fitness world.

We have so many MORE people to help, inspire & lead happier healthier, fitter lives.

I find it the most amazing opportunity for all of us.

Teach what YOU LOVE.

Share what you are PASSIONATE ABOUT.

Going on a course is an AWESOME way to connect with your passion.

But if you can’t get away:

Download a new book
Google some new ideas
Research on You Tube
Listen to a podcast or audiobook

Just get those CREATIVITY juices flowing.

Sometimes the going gets tough being a lone Fitness Instructor.

But we are SO lucky & grateful to be doing something as wonderful as  fitness, health, nutrition & wellbeing for a living.

I just am in LOVE with this quote by Yogi Bhajan

“To learn something, read about it.
To understand something, write about it.
To MASTER something, teach it”

Quote by Yogi Bhajan

Spread Fitness Love & Miracles to all your clients, customers & students this week

Have a Happy Sunday Team

Love ya
Rachel xxxxxxx
