when I was teaching my step class at LA Fitness. I was uptight as usual because step was my weakest format. Yoga, kickboxing, and Pilates were a piece of cake, but almost every time I taught step I managed to forget a move and would have to start the routine over.
While taking the members through the first portion of this particular class I happened to look at myself in the mirror. Each time I stepped up I could see white under the skirt of my skort. Hmm . . . there shouldn’t have been white because my skort was solid blue. Perplexed, I distractedly thought about it while we did a few repeaters and rocking horses. It was then that it dawned on me – my skort was inside out. Wonderful. Just another reason for the members to think I didn’t know what I was doing.
Realizing that they may become wise to my dressing faux pas, I decided to come clean. Announcing my mistake to the class, I joked about the silly things we do when we are in a hurry. We got a good chuckle from my wardrobe malfunction, after which we were able to relax and enjoy the class more. Thank goodness for human error.
What dressing faux pas has caught you off-guard?
