Always remember sweat is not an indicator of how hard you are working but your bodys' ability to cool itself down.

I sweat the moment we start moving - even in other classes I teach, I am sweating on the warmup - sweating - not misty.

On a hot day if I sit outside I really sweat and I don't even have to move.

So get the point - lots of sweat does not correlate to lots of hard work.

I totally agree with Barronvc - the best way to challenge is with the HR monitor.

No amount of sweat can tell you that you worked hard - it can tell you though that your body got heated and turned on its cooling mechanism.

Use the HR monitor and have fun - that will accurately tell you what you have done

Best challenge is a HR monitor. Hit start when the class starts and stop after the warm down. Check your average HR and Max HR. Have fun

I got an early morning spot instructing at a local YMCA. As yet have to work into a regular rotation but just glad to be back instructing and working with a whole new group of people. They are mostly business and professionals working in the downtown core. The class is 45 minutes which they want to use for a tough workout. The warm up is done on their own accord before the class starts. They're also happy with a 3 minute cool down. Their rating of the class is dictated by the amount of sweat created.
