1. iPod *
CDs are old news man, unless you’re covering someone’s class for the first time and WHAM! You’re guaranteed to get a bloody CD player!
My Weapon of choice: Apple iPod Touch
Price: £149 – £249 (prices varies on size of memory)
*Don’t forget to buy a Jack to connect the iPod to your stereo!
2. Microphone Belt
Have you tried wearing a mic in class without a belt? That sucker is like an excitable two year old, it will not sit still! Get a belt and strap it down baby!
My Weapon of choice: Sound Dynamic Zebra Print Belt
Price: £20 – £23 (Sound Dynamic sales so keep your eyes peeled!)
3. Portable Sound System
Forget the mahoosive JVC you need a truck to transport, get a portable PA system, speakers and mixer desk all round up into one!
My Weapon of choice: Kinetics 200w 10″ Powered Speaker with Bluetooth & Wheels
Price: £179.99 (currently reduced from £215.99 and I know you get a discount if you are a Clubbercise or Zumba Instructor)
4. Decent Trainers
I have tried so many different brands and the one that I know I can rely on 100% is Nike! I have never had any problems with them and I teach several types of fitness classes. They last forever and come in a never-ending range of colours!
My Weapon of choice: Nike FREE
Price: £50 upwards (shop around, you can get some great deals in places like Sports Direct)
5. Water Bottle
Now you are probably thinking, a bottles a bottle right? Wrong! You need a decent size bottle for starters (500ml minimum) and something that is durable because if you are anything like me, I always kick it over during class!
My Weapon of choice: Zyliss 500ml Water Bottle
Price: £5.99 – £9.99 (I got mine from TK Maxx but you can get them from Amazon)
