In order to sit to take the ACE Group fitness instructor exam, you have to first be CPR and AED certified. I was neither, and didn’t even know what AED (Automated External Defibrillator) stood for, so I signed up for the classes with the Red Cross. When you walk in, they give you this creepy looking rubber face in a clear plastic bag that you later use to place over the mannequin’s head for sanitary reasons. I named mine “Henry.” LOL, he just looked like an old guy named Henry to me. Little did I know, me and Henry would get to know each other really well. I saved his life, I gave him mouth to mouth and even plucked imaginary food from his mouth when he was chocking. Seriously though, I learned a lot, especially when we had to lie on the floor while another class participant pretended to save us. CPR is hard work, most of us agreed that after 2 minutes of doing it properly, (not what you see on TV), your arms are really tired. At the end, we took a test of what we just learned. Being the nerd that I am, I got 100% right. However, I still hope and pray that nobody falls unconscious during one my exercise classes. But, if they do, I can save ‘em, and I got a little red and white card to prove it.
