A few posts ago, I alluded to having a specific goal for the past 15ish years which I never worked towards. With my husband's encouragement, I worked towards that goal and I'm now a certified spinning/indoor cycling instructor.
I love it. It's a fun, healthy hobby. It keeps my fitness in check and lets me be a leader which I enjoy. I also love picking the music for my classes (and I don't have to listen to another instructor's musical choices!)
I've been working at a local-to-me studio which offers indoor cycling classes.
But, I've had my eye set on a different studio. I auditioned there a few days ago, and I thought I did a kick ass job. But, today, I received a nice rejection email. I'm a bit heartbroken, but I'm trying to keep it all in perspective. I am doing some work as a spinning instructor and I'm pretty newly certified, so that's a good thing!
The other good news is that they let me know quickly, so now I get to look for other studios who may want to hire me. I'm currently teaching about 1 class per week and my goal is to teach 2-4 classes per week.
Their loss, right?
