Hi tulip, hi noahark.. don't be too discouraged... i started very badly oso bcos i oso dont do steps.. now still trying to follow but has since improved... it all takes quite a bit of time. whenever i can't do, i always stick to basic.
Thx for encouragement.....
but bong is real fast n difficult to follow at times....he sometimes will give signal to me to lead me to do the basic but I got to follow exactly, then if he starts doing stunt or fanciful styles, then i cannot follow again.
Hi. Have you attended pauline's SB then? Is her style easier to follow?
Why did you say that? No lah!
Naoki is right... must give ourselves time to learn the steps and gain confidence. And perhaps you can try out other instructors' lessons to find one whose pace is more suitable for you at this point in time.
Actually, each SB will be different. Even though there is a 25 or 35 combination but so far most of the instructors are not very used to doing the various combination mainly becos it is not their own. So what they do is to pick out some of the SBs and incorporate it into their own steps workout... thus u got a different SB from each individual. Bong's is pure SB since he is one of the cheoregrapher. So you will probably find others much easier to follow. You need time... and anyway Bong's friday SB is the only evening slot so it is harder to get use and know the steps.
For me, I will try to do the blitz first, but if I really find it hard to follow, I will ignore totally and just stick to basic. I don't care if the person in front, left or right is doing the advanced steps...as long as I don't knock into them.
Last Fri, the class has alot of new members to SB, and bong was trying to introduce the steps slowly, from basics onwards, but there was one or 2 regulars who were doing the more advanced steps... so much so that bong has to turn around and told her to 'stick to basic'. So you don't have to be too discouraged as bong he does try to slow down and don't be distracted by the regulars or advanced members. And every1 makes mistakes... me too... always making a wrong turn..
I went to KB last Fri instead (at Kovan)thou I have signed up for SB as well.i gv up and decided not to take as no courage and i just walked off after his KB cl.
really wanted to tell Bong m sorry for walking out just like that.
haha... don't feel bad, noahark... i did not notice any1 left the room halfway thru... bong may not have noticed too... since there were quite a few newbies. Do try to do next time... We all got the hang of it towards the end, and had a nother round that's why the class overshot its hour.
Yes I am extremely sad. I've attended his class for 3 years plus now... I'm sure Daphne will also feel the same.
Actually, if u want to take on a new fitness pkg, why not try Fitness First or Planet Fitness. Although there will be guys and gays around, the classes are more interesting. And nowadays the price are very competitive. Go and ask for a week's trial, then you compare and decide. You will prob jump over to them rather than continue with amore. I can't jump now bcos i have another year with amore... so until sometime next year, I will have to stay with amore.
Hopefully amore will continue to bring in good quality instructors.
eummm... yah i knew. Thunder and Lightning hor!!! He has offers in the bigger clubs but not finalised yet. So if you still want to be in his class, you will have to sign up elsewhere... i cry lah... no ray no ghani... die liao lah...
Daphne, you will miss it so much just like me... maybe you should consider going for his last class at amore this thursday.
naoki, i'm going this aftern..... think should be his class.... oh so you know which clubs are offering him lah....keke..... tell us when u know where he is going leh.... (or PM me)...
ya lor..... i was stunned when i saw the sms.... and it was like... how to exercise when he is not teaching there now....
I only know he teached at Phillip Wain, but do u know if he taught other fitness clubs? I used to attend his KB class but eversince he stopped at TP, I seldom hv chance to attend his class...alamak, so sudden.....
hi daphne, temporary his kb classes will be covered by Bong and Carmela...prob once a while, you will find Rasol or Rashid...until the new instructor comes in. Will let you know once he has confirmed his new place.
naoki, ok must remember to let me know how.... keke...... then can see if wanna sign up there or not since my membership is expiring... i suppose amore will lose quite a number of followers? but it's kindda short notice....
hmm... no news from him leh...he's still in phillip wain... but no kb there... then he also still have classes at yishun sat 12noon and sun 9am kb/muay thai class (he stays extremely near to the yishun sports centre). Dont worry lor, i will immediately post his new place once he settled down.
