Tips to enjoyable participation in gym-based classes with Edinburgh Leisure.
- Book the session in advance and please cancel if you cannot make the session
- The sessions will burn calories, please make sure you are fuelled up and hydrated well before the class
- Work to your own intensity, if you need a breather during the session, stop, rest, and continue again once recovered.
- Although each class will involve a warm-up it can often help to perform your own specific warm up prior if you know you have areas you need to mobilise on e.g. joint stiffness etc.
- Come with an open mind. You will perform lots of new exercises and use equipment & training methods you may not have done previously
- Don’t overdo it if you are new to classes, training in high intensity can be taxing on the body. Try 1 class per week supplemented by your own personal program, which our gym teams can create for you, before doing multiple gym classes per week.
- Remember, doing new exercises will work different muscles so you may feel some discomfort in these muscles for a few days, this is normal.
