Almost a year ago, I started my fitness account on Instagram, Powergirl_Fitness. My goal with this account was to find workouts that I found to be efficient for myself and others; what would be better than a workout where you actually felt like you worked something? As time went on, I also had started blogging about fitness and health as well. Surprisingly, most of my readers had told me that they really enjoyed my Health & Fitness section on my page the most. Little did I know, what started as a hobby/interest to help others, would lead me further than I’d ever expect.
A while back, I had been approached by the gym I belong to if I’d be interested in fitness training…how did they know I had potential?
Because of my Instagram account!
I think it is incredible how influential social media can be. We all know it can make an impact in one way or another, but this was beyond my expectations. All I did was take an interest and shared what I’ve tried with everyone!
Cut to a few months later, and I am now a Group Fitness Instructor!
I’m definitely nervous for this new journey, because I am jumping into a different area of work. Luckily enough, I have immense experience teaching dance so I’m confident that most of my methods will transfer over. Though I may be nervous in hoping that all goes well, I keep trying to stay as positive as possible.
What I love most is that I’m surrounded by some badass fierce and fearless instructors who are now my co-workers. These are instructors that I have attended their classes and fell in love even more with working out; their classes served as a playground for me–instead of dragging my feet to a workout, I thought of it as a time to play. I hope I can be half the instructor that they are!
I have started training, and I’m so excited by all that I’m learning! I can’t wait for January so I can see how this all unravels. My purpose of this post was to show that an opportunity can come at any time! It’s funny because we all start Instagram accounts or blogs just for fun, and we never expect the opportunities that can come from them.
I want to hear from you the readers! Would you like for me to document this new journey? Also, what opportunities have you gotten from your blogs or social media accounts? Or what opportunities do you hope to receive?
