An Hour of Fun and Persistence

Mondays tend to be perceived as different from other week days. Some find them less productive, others love getting back to their daily routine.

My Mondays changed a lot in September 2012 when I started teaching a weekly group fitness class at work. Admittedly, interrupting the office day for the class resulted in longer working hours, but more importantly it turned into a source of joy and inspiration.

Today, 19 months after my first class, I unconsciously spent a few seconds between and during the songs contemplating. And what struck me is how much everyone in the room has learned in that time. Learned to improve coordination and fitness level, communicate more clearly, become more self-aware… just thanks to an hour of persistence and fun on ordinary Mondays.

I can’t wait for next Monday to come. How has yours been?

  1. Already 19 month ? Sorry I missed it today. You are a great inspiration and whenever I hear a song of your training I automatically start smiling. Looking forward!
