THE STORY OF ALWAYS MOVING FORWARD
My vision for Always Moving Forward was to create a hub to inspire instructors to create bespoke, freestyle class solutions for their amazing participants. We have ended up in an industry that is dominated by brand power and pre-choreographed concepts. I teach pre-choreographed concepts, I work and have worked for pre-choreographed fitness concepts and I think they are awesome. But I also believe in our right as instructors to choose. To feel that we have the education and the resources that we need to empower us to create, adapt and invent classes that are completely tailored to the needs and wants of our own clients who we know better than anyone else.
Always Moving Forward is about bring everyone together as an industry. Appreciating the incredible pre-choreographed brands that are out there, the freestyle classes that we can create as part of our qualifications as well as those combo brands that allow you to add your own sparkle to the class.
This site has been a huge labour of love and has taken an entire year to put together for launch. There will be lots of changes within the site as it grows and I welcome your feedback and suggestions to improve what has been created.
Being a group ex instructor is one of the best jobs in the world. But it can come with its difficulties… and that is what this site is for. I hope it goes someway to help with the constant creation of new choreo and exciting class plans, business and marketing support as well as the occasional feeling of solitude that comes with being self-employed.
