Good article. After many years of teaching is good as a reminder not to fall into a routine. Refreshing.

Great article. There is one type of group training that merits a standardized routine for an entire month, and that is a periodized strength training class. It's imperative that the exercises remain the same for the entire month so that clients can effectively learn and perform each exercise with progressive loads. However, I now see that I can incorporate your "theme of the week" idea in order to add extra interest and motivation amidst a set routine. Thanks!!
