Course Guide

  • Choose a course that will suit your style and ability. If in doubt, staff will be pleased to advise you.
  • Wear appropriate clothing and make sure your footwear is designed for the activity. 
  • As a courtesy to others and for health and safety reasons, please arrive 5 minutes before the class start time to set up. We will refuse access to anyone arriving after the class has started. The warm up is a crucial part of the session and reduces the risk of injury.
  • Drink plenty of water before, during and after the exercise.
  • Never exercise after a heavy meal. A light carbohydrate snack is ideal.  
  • Inform your instructor of any medication, injury, ante/post natal or illness that may affect your ability to exercise.
  • Never exercise when feeling unwell.
