The scariest session so far!
I’ve been standing up in front of groups and crowds taking classes, holding seminars and giving presentations, for over a decade and by now you’d think that I’d be quite at ease with it.
I was asked if I would go along to a local school to speak about the benefits of healthy eating to children!
And in usual Tara fashion, I instantly said yes!!
Then I thought about it….
OMG, what had I signed myself up for!?!?!
But, you have to try something new and as I say very often…If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you!
(Or one of my other fav’s is ‘scare yourself once a day!’)
Ok, I wasn’t that scared, but I was a little apprehensive. Surely they’re not all going to go crazy around me and I’ll look a bit like Arnie in Kindergarten Cop?!?!?
Anyway, I got to the school and the children had been told a little bit about me and what I do so they knew to expect a good lesson in health & wellbeing.
And I started the class….
After a quick intro, I gave them question time:
” Are you famous?” “Are you on YouTube?” “Are you going on TV?”
Ha…not very fitness based but it was a No, Yes and Yes..
“When are you on TV?”
So I gave the Date
“That’s my birthday…….”
For the next 2 minutes they all told me when their birthday was, not going to plan so far but cute & funny.
So I had to switch my teacher head on and take control and at this point it was time to do what I do best, get them moving.
After a few questions on healthy eating and exercise it was action time. A few squats, star jumps and jogging on the spots later, it wasn’t long before they were all breathless and quieter.
(ha 1-0 to Tara)
And before I knew it, I’d actually gone a few minutes over time. I really enjoyed myself, and based on the happy, smiling faces afterwards, I think they did too.
So I may have to try this a bit more. I think I can see myself working through a few generations helping to spread some health & fitness love. It’s so important to educate children and the parents on a healthy lifestyle.
I wonder what the rules are about pouncing on the parents in the school yard too???
So look out schools & parents, I may be doing more rounds!
Keep fit & fab
