I’ve been a kickboxing addict almost since the first Tae Bo video hit the shelves. I became certified in that format and set out to get a class at a gym. I was great at Tae Bo! Billy Blanks even put me in one of hit videos, and I thought that would be enough.
I couldn't have been more wrong!
I had no idea how difficult it would be to get a class at a gym. There were a few reasons why my first auditions didn’t go well. First of all, I wasn’t very experienced. Second, I wore baggy sweatpants… in a size XL. But aside from that, my biggest disadvantage was knowing ONLY Tae Bo. I was asked at every audition what other formats I could teach, and I had to answer, “Just the one.”
