Hey, #RIPPEDFamily! We have some really exclusive insider information coming to you this week. But first, we have to give you the low down. So, Alana Carlisle Adame recently joined our family of R.I.P.P.E.D. instructors in Texas. Congratulations Alana! She reached out to our fitness family, seeking advice on how to learn our routines so she can be fully prepared to teach her R.I.P.P.E.D. class.

And boy did the #RIPPEDFamily come through with the advice and encouragement. Get the tips and hacks for memorizing routines from some of our veteran instructors.

“Once you listen to the music, learn it, and then learn the counts for the various moves, it’s pretty easy to implement. It will also get easier and quicker with time. I remember being new to a choreographed format and I felt like it took me a long time to learn it.
