I learned that my teaching skills needed to be improved. For instance, I am monotone when teaching chair pilates for service learning and this doesn't excite the class or keep them interested. I also learned that my voice projection for classes was too low and elderly participants were unable to hear me. I learned how to design fitness programs and was introduced to chair pilates and the many exercises that may be incorporated to training in a chair.

Advice for students:
Be on time for everything. Be very professional at service learning and observations and dress conservatively.
