Whirlpool Game

This is an Aquatic pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15126)

This is a really simple game, but it is really fun and always gets the class in a good mood. I like to do it right at the end of warm-up, or if the class needs a little break in the cardio.

Everyone holds hands in a tight circle. Start off by getting everyone to run clockwise getting faster and faster (I usually have them go for about 20 seconds), then yell "SWITCH!" and they have to switch directions and run counterclockwise against the current they've just created. Repeat as many times as you like.

This is just like the game that kids play when they are playing around in the water, but my classes always love it, it gets them laughing and interacting with each other. It brings out the kid in all of us! Have fun!
