"Relay" race

This is a [Other] pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 14139)

This can be a good chance for them to meet new people. You can move between groups correcting posture, explaining benefit of activity, etc. and joining in when/if you feel like it. A good class to do if you are an injured instructor or just need a class off!

Before class, make 2 identical sets of cards with the following excercises (and whatever else you think of). Shuffle cards. If some are not appropriate to the class format, pull them out or let the participants of a strength class know that they may find a stray cardio card and can ignore it, for example. There will be more than a class-worth of cards here... you may want to announce when they have 10 and 5 minutes left, then bring them together for a final stretch. Since some cards take longer than others, they it is not really a race... they are all winners ;)

Divide the class into two somewhat-equal groups.

Set up high steps (4-5 pods on each side) and announce that they will need weights (heavy & light), stability ball, mat, and medicine ball for some tasks... in order to keep the floor free of excess clutter, they may get these as needed. As always, participants should modify exercises as needed!


Have fun with this! Feel free to add exercises!
