One Ten - life As An instructor

作為健身教練,我經常在班上訓練成年人以提升他們的身心力量。然而,當我開始要成為110導師時,我意識到教導青少年需要的是一種相似但截然不同的方法。這是我尚未裝備好的東西

We received many hours of training prior and analysing the One Ten class curriculum that was tailor-made to ensure we really do bring out the best in the young adults, maximising class time. But as they say, you really do learn on the job as well and One Ten certainly happened that way.

I was recently fortunate enough to attend a workshop hosted by one of the organisations partnering with 110 - Act Plus, a charity organisation that aims at supporting underprivleged youth in Hong Kong. In a room with other One Ten instructors who each specialize in various fitness areas, we shared our current experiences with our One Ten classes. It was inspiring to hear how different instructors use their own unique techniques and personalities to create a common focus for their classes. Whether the goal is more disciplinary or entertaining, to triggering more inward reflection - one thing was apparent. The focus of each instructor’s class all shared a common theme - each targeted a different mindset, and allowed the attendees to experience a different range of emotion on their own; but we ultimately aim to strengthen and improve each young adult’s current situation.

On top of sharing our class experiences, we were also educated with additional tools on how to better connect to younger minds. As adults, we often forget a lot of what used to stress us out as adolescents, and the thoughts and feelings that weighed us down. Being able to be reminded of these feelings and situations that caused this, equipped me with a better skill set to connect on an even deeper level with each One Ten class’ warriors.

An extra special thanks to One Ten and Act Plus, my understanding of how to better communicate and connect with Hong Kong youth has increased, and I am excited for what the future holds as One Ten expands!
