When I told my husband that I came up with a concept called The R.E.A.R. View, guess where his mind went? Yep, to my backside. I can't blame him. After all, part of my job as a fitness coach is to help make rear ends high-and-tight. In fact, no workout is complete without a round of squats and lunges to target those gorgeous glutes!
The rear view also reminded me of an instructor's visual perspective when leading fitness classes. Before the advent of Les Mill and Body Training Systems, programs requiring instructors to face their participants, instructors faced the mirror. The reflection in the mirror--the instructor's rear view--is how we keep an eye on our participants. Building on the idea of that rear view, where we continually monitor and coach the participants who faithfully follow the instructor, I came up with an acronym for R.E.A.R. representing four key concepts that create a best experience for my clients. Every time I teach, train, or advise, I keep these concepts in mind to deliver what clients want:
With The R.E.A.R. View--my reader's best interest--always in sight, I hope to provide you with just the right message to encourage you to move a little more, eat a little better, and love yourself a little deeper each day.
1. Hip bridges 20x (Lie on your back, bend your knees with feet on the floor. Lift/lower hips, squeezing glutes at the top)
2. Push-ups 10x
Repeat 3-5 times!
