Entertainment| | By Melanie Weir
You’ve never seen a gym class like this before! Group fitness instructor Keith Thompson – who could be described as the “best gym instructor ever” – is bringing energy and positivity to this spin class like it’s his job. That’s because it is!
Thompson has an amazing life story. A 300-pound man working for a telecommunications company in 2008, no diets or exercise regimens he tried were sticking with him. That is, until he found step class. Something in the music clicked for Thompson, and he not only lost more than 70 pounds but also inspired everyone around him with his energy and drive. His instructor took note of this and helped him to get a scholarship to complete his group fitness coach training and become a certified fitness instructor.
Thompson gained popularity quickly, first with students at a nationwide gym, where he was so popular that he had to teach classes in three different cities, and then with his own students through KTX Fitness, a group that he founded when his own style branched too far from traditional workouts. KTX Fitness describes its step, cycle, and Zumba classes as “fitness parties,” where students can go at their own pace and feel encouraged and motivated the whole time. They are unique because of their combination of hip-hop, R&B, and traditional exercise, but also because of Thompson’s unique coaching style. Spaces in his classes fill up fast and there are long waitlists, but this video explains why without a doubt. This man could motivate a mountain to roll over!
