I absolutely love traveling for work.
A few weeks ago I was contacted by GYROTONIC® Headquarters and offered the opportunity to work at the Pilates Method Alliance Conference. Since I don’t get out of town as much as I’d like and I’d have the opportunity to see a bunch of friends I hadn’t seen in years, I jumped at the chance.
It didn’t hurt that this is where the Pilates Method Alliance Conference is happening!
I’m down here in sunny Ft. Lauderdale FL soaking up the rays, getting loads of time in the ocean, pool and hot tubs, having fun with my trainer friends, introducing pilates instructors to the awesomeness that is the GYROTONIC® equipment… and unbelievably, I’m actually getting paid for this.
Life is good this week!
Obviously it’s not all fun and games. We’re here to work.
Luckily for us GYROTONIC® trainers, work is very playful. We definitely enjoy what we do.
The conference attendees are here to learn from industry leaders. Throughout the day there are classes, lectures and group panels educating these fitness professionals. The Pilates Method Alliance is a highly respected educational organization within the pilates community.
In between the workshops the exhibition hall is open and vendors to display their wares. For us, this means showing the equipment, getting people on it so they can experience it on their own bodies.
Of course, try keeping a bunch of Gyrotonic instructors off the equipment.
Yeah, good luck with that. Pretty much 100% of the time, if a trainer isn’t giving a demo session to one of the attendees, we’re on the equipment playing, moving and having fun. We’re a bunch of hyperactive little monkeys who just can’t get enough of this good stuff. We share ideas, make up new movements, frequently goof off but almost constantly move.
I’m having the best time, with the best people.
Too bad I can’t do just this for a living!
