I admit I don’t have the most “normal” job – teaching people to juggle. But I can still say I love my job. Why? I could go on for hours about it, but here are a few of the main reasons:
- It makes people laugh and smile while doing something healthy.
- No matter how many people I teach, that moment when someone learns and juggles for the first time leaves me (and them!) ecstatic. Each class is full of these mini-celebrations with my students and the rest of the class.
- I get to pass along a skill that could potentially have a positive impact on people’s lives. I’ve heard stories from many students about how juggling has helped them. From the man who told me his blood sugar was down 20 points after class to another that told me he practiced all night and “forgot” to smoke, I never get enough of this awesome student feedback. The days that I receive emails with a stories like this are the days that I count as my best!
Here’s a photo from my juggling class last Saturday in New York City.
If you don’t know how to juggle, I hope I get to teach you to someday! I’ve had many visitors to NYC make JuggleFit a part of their trip. You can always learn the basics with my video here. I’d love it if you’d keep me posted on your progress, either in the comments below or by emailing me at info(at)jugglefit(dot)com!
