How to get the most out of group fitness class

I love my job as a fitness instructor. When I was younger, I would get up early to watch Denise Austin “pump it up” on ESPN. Occasionally I would even do the workouts along with her.

After 25 years of envious viewing, I’m now living that dream (minus the Hawaiian beach — but I’m not dead yet).
