Here in Florida we are in the gooey thick of Summer. What does that mean? Humidity to melt your face, thunderstorms to blow your face off, and sunshine to give it a nice glossy tan. What is a great way to pass the time while all this happens to your face? Reading! Here is part […]

Sean Vigue Reviews Konkura Challenges Blog

Recently, a new startup website and blog called Konkura was brought to my attention and I thought I would share the wealth! The site is a community of fitness enthusiasts engaging in friendly competition by posting challenges for a variety of sports or fitness activities. Activities range from the Royal Marine Challenge to the less […]

Confessions of a Freestyle Fitness Instructor part 10 – “My Name is Sean Vigue and i’m a Disney Walkaholic.”

I admit it. I’m a Disney “Walkaholic”! Living 5 minutes from Walt Disney World doesn’t hurt. In the past 7 years I have tread the magical grounds of the “Happiest Place on Earth” and seen and experienced much. How much? Seen what? Stepped in what?? Let me tell you. I study, pray, meditate, observe, listen […]

Confessions of a Freestyle Fitness Instructor part 9 – “To Burp or Not to Burp?”

I have a conundrum. I’m vexed. Horribly vexed. Vexed, I say. Is it time in my classes….to introduce the challenging and intimidating Burpee? What is a Burpee? Sounds like a large drink one may buy at 7/11 b ut you be wrong my friend. There are many different forms of the Burpee. Like this one […]

Confessions of a Freestyle Fitness Instructor part 8 – “I Was 17 When I Won My First Beauty Pageant!”

By request, here is an example of what I do in my personal Core workouts. I LOVE doing these types of workouts. I really can’t stress that enough. They are SO much fun! Sure, we work the Core during (stomach, low back, hips and glutes), but you will be shocked at how much these shred, […]

Confessions of a Freestyle Fitness Instructor part 7 – “Stop Throwing Potato Salad During Pilates!”

It was a big week. After much deliberation, hem-hawing, sighing, pacing, and general milling about, I have bid a fond farewell to using CD’s in my classes and plunged ¬†headfirst into the world of iPods with little speakers that deliver amazing sound. Most people have now decided to tell me that I am “officially” leaving […]

Confessions of a Freestyle Fitness Instructor part 6 – “Hey Jack Kerouac, Don’t Smoke in the Plank!!”

I just reread “On the Road” by Jack Kerouac and it got me thinking of the parallels of his travels and mine…specifically my always changing theater and fitness travels. Before jumping head first into the wild world of fitness, I spent 13 years as a professional singer/actor and had the good fortune to travel the […]

Confessions of a Freestyle Fitness Instructor part 5 – “May I Drive You to Your Treadmill?”

Every time I go to my gym (which is inside a major hospital) to workout and listen to Van Halen, I am stalked by the golf cart that cruises the parking lots searching for people to carry to the entrance. I love to park far away so I can walk. I’m the weirdo, I know […]

Confessions of a Freestyle Fitness Instructor part 4 – “Frankly, Mr. Fitness, I Don’t Give a Damn!”

I never underestimate the immense power of film – even when teaching fitness classes. If you think hard enough you can create an appropriate movie quote for whatever chicanery arrises in specific moments in Pilates, Yoga, Spinning and Pylata. Here are a few events which stand out and what quotes are the most acceptable. ¬†Keep […]

Confessions of a Freestyle Fitness Instructor part 3 – “The Curious Birth of Pilates for Men?”

That’s right, my Pilates for Men DVD/Download workout was first created on accident. Let me set the stage – I was planning to do a standard 5-Minute Abs Workout somewhere in my town of Celebration, Florida. You see, when I write out a workout I really don’t know where it will be filmed. I got […]
