Frequently asked questions
How do I choose the right class for me?
Speak with any of our fitness specialists or contact the group fitness supervisor to help find the right class for you.
What do I need to know before I attend my first class?
Arrive Early: approximately 15 minutes to meet the instructor. They will ensure you are comfortable and answer any questions you have. They will also ask you some questions and then decide if you would benefit from any modification. After the class be sure to talk with the instructor, let them know how you felt and if anything was particularly challenging for you. The instructor can then make modifications for your next class.
What do I need to bring?
A towel, water bottle and your energy.
What should I wear?
The most important thing is to be comfortable. Feel free to ask our fitness staff or the supervisor if you are not sure of what to wear.
If I have a change in health status what is my responsibility (e.g. pregnant, arthritis, heart condition)?
After your health care provider has cleared you for exercise you should arrive early to class and speak with your instructor so that they can provide you with appropriate modifications.
How do I monitor my intensity during class?
Hopefully you have taken advantage of getting started with your PFS (Personal Fitness Strategy) and were provided with your intensity goals. If so then it is your responsibility to monitor your intensity in any of the following ways:
- Heart rate monitor
- Perceived exertion chart
- Talk test
If you need any assistance with these methods please see a fitness specialist, personal trainer or any instructor. To develop your Personal Fitness Strategy click here.
