Classes welcome all levels of fitness. When starting a new class try to arrive about 10 minutes early and let the instructor know you’re a beginner. The instructor can offer tips, tell you what equipment is needed and can offer alternate exercise options. Standing in the middle of the room is a good idea so the instructor can see your form, and you can watch the front row for visual cues.
