Advice For Taking Group Classes
Above all, you should know what is contraindicated for your body. If you have an injury or a chronic problem such as low back pain, it is of the utmost importance that you leave out or know how to modify an exercise that can exacerbate your problem. If you are not sure, speak to the instructor before the class begins. If you feel any pain during an exercise that is not just muscle soreness or fatigue, stop doing the exercise! It is not worth it to force yourself through it and risk an injury. Last but not least, don’t forget your water bottle and stay hydrated during your class.
