What to Expect

Try to arrive 5-10 minutes before class so you can get any equipment needed and you won't feel rushed if you have any trouble locating the room. Before class, the instructor scans everyone's IDs and gives instruction on the equipment (if any) needed for the class. Everything you'll need is provided in the room. Grab what you need and set up a little space for yourself wherever you like in the room. The instructor will be in the front and center of the room, wearing a microphone to give instruction and they'll often play music. Simply follow the instruction and enjoy yourself! Every class has a variety of fitness levels and the instructor will show how to modify each move for beginners.

If any move makes you uncomfortable, it's ok to stop, or modify it as you like. Feel free to grab a drink of water, or a different weight during the class if necessary. At the end of class, please wipe down any equipment you used with an antiseptic wipe and return the equipment.
