What to Bring
First and foremost, bring an upbeat attitude! There will be times when you are feeling tired or frustrated with your day and those are the best days to make time for exercise. You’ll be uplifted and invigorated. If you are already in a good mood; keep the good vibes moving.
Clothing and sneakers. Practically speaking, wear loose clothing and a good pair of supportive sneakers. Avoid sneakers that have soles that are too flat and inflexible. Running sneakers tend to have an accentuated curvature along the toe line. Select aerobic or cross trainer sneakers with good arch and ankle support.
Mats. Nonskid thin yoga mats are encouraged for the yoga class. Thicker folding or rollable mats are suggested for the other classes. Judy and Gail use mats that can be purchased directly from www.TheFitnessStore.com.
