I am a total cheeseball and I know it. I love to see my name in print and watch myself on TV. Any chance I get to promote the studio I work at, or Pilates in general, I am happy!
This was not the first time that I have been on the local news to promote the Studio, but I honestly think this was the best. It is great to go to the station and do a spot, but it is way more fun and informative when they come to us.
On February 13 Kansas City Live came to record an MVe chair spot. Yes, I love being on TV, but it was very nervewracking wondering what they would pick to air.
We did an interview, a full class, and some of the students were interviewed as well. All-in-all about a 90 minute experience. So, to whittle that down to a 3-5 minute piece left me wondering what would be shown.
I was so thrilled with the end piece! They even mentioned how we have a spa-like setting for getting your sweat on, something that we feel great about.
A piece of advice: When in doubt, always paint your toe nails.
The day we were set to record I was very busy. It was Ash Wednesday. I had to do drop-offs at two schools. Take a shower. Get to the Studio early to set up. Phew! And I had naked nails. I contemplated not painting them. I mean, really, how vain of me to think that my toes would be the center of the news piece. But, I took the 10 minutes to paint them. No base coat, just color and quick-dry top coat. And guess what? 2 minutes. Seriously, 2 minutes, into taping the class the camera man came by and did a close-up of my feet on the MVe chair foot bar. Happy dance in my mind for taking the time to polish! In case you are wondering, mine are the purplish-brown toes. My favorite color: Foie Gras from the China Glaze Hunger Games collection! Woop woop!
Alright, without any further ado, here is the television spot:
What do you think? Do I need to tone-down the excitement in my voice?
Would you try MVe Chair?
Can you tell I was standing on yoga blocks for my interview?
Have you been on TV? Do you love it or hate it?
