2 bathrooms and 1 shower.
What should I expect from my first workout?
Focused attention due to smaller class sizes.
Lighter weights or modified movements if required.
What should I expect after my first workout?
You will probably be sore with that discomfort going away after a couple of days.
Don't think that because you are sore the training is too hard.
This just means that your muscles have to adapt to a new stimulus.
The discomfort will become more manageable the longer you train.
How often should I come?
It's strongly recommend attending no less than 3 classes per week.
The reason for this is that if you come less than that, the ability to retain knowledge of lifts and movements is decreased and after 3 days, unless you are a seasoned athlete, your fitness levels start to die off.
Can I train if I'm pregnant?
Remaining active during pregnancy is not only important for your health, but it is important for the growth and development of your baby.
The workouts can, and will, be modified for you in order to stay fit while going through the wonderful process of pregnancy.
You will be closely monitored so you and your baby are not put it harms way.
Any information with regards to your pregnancy is vital (i.e. pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes, normal pregnancy, etc.)
Rest assured, this information will not be shared with anyone.
What should I do if I have an injury?
The coaching staff can modify movements in order to allow you to still train efficiently and safely.
We work closely with massage therapy.
We share a close relationship with chiropractic and physiotherapy care.
