After having followed many classes including among other things, a trainer’s class, I am convinced that Joost also has a very unconventional training style. The first day I cringed while listening to his monologue about decisiveness and language style (after all I had been taught something else). With his rules on interaction…(which is understandable considering the size of the group and the amount of material) followed by a load of humour, expression and anecdotes, this was the first time in my life that I was constantly focused on the class! For hours on end. And that is very remarkable for unconcentrated types like myself, or for people with ADHD/ADD. I hadn’t actually selected the class for that reason because I was convinced that this simply was my problem. As soon as we learned about the Milton model I was reassured about Joost. I came to the conclusion that he had already let the Milton model sink in with the language he used. Joost had earned my respect. And his passion and energetic radiance and something that resembles ‘strictness’ keeps you on your toes and makes you take the break with his ‘clock’ seriously.
Looking back on the amount of material, I can say it was quite a lot. Very intensive, yet do-able! It was concluded with a surprising exam. A day filled with action. In a challenging way knowledge is tested and material is repeated in a playful manner. I can’t think of a better way to do it!
