We want to make teaching Surge Fit classes as fun and easy as possible. We do this with
1. Easy to follow, intuitive choreography patterns
2. Simple, unique moves
3. A 1,2,3 coaching technique that’s easy to remember and sets you and your participants up for success.
Most Surge Fit tracks have 3 rounds of work. You do not need to be talking throughout the entire song – breathe and let the music speak– but we do encourage you to give ONE cue in each round as outlined below in our coaching technique.
Round #1 Set up Cues
This includes cues for set-up, alignment, safety and choreography. These cues help your participants know what to do and how to do it correctly. Examples include: “turn your knees and toes out slightly in your jacks” “chest lifted in your squat” or “thumbs at that nipple line in your push ups.”
Round #2 Follow up Cues
Follow up cues give participants tips on how to make their movement more effective. Examples include: “Can you drop your booty lower” “Feel your shoulder blades rotating towards your spine” “plant those heels in your jacks”.
Round #3 Motivational Cues
Add fun, encouragement, connection and motivation with cues that help your participants get to a place they could not get to on their own. This is why they come to class! There are a lot of online virtual workout options out there. They come to a group fitness class for the connection and in-person encouragement they cannot get anywhere else.
Give this 1,2,3 coaching technique a try. I think you’ll find it provides the perfect balance of enough cues to provide a fun, safe and effective workout but not sooo many that you take away from the power of the music.
