Where do you begin?
It is recommended that your first session be a private one, that is, a one-on-one session with an instructor. This class will introduce you to the apparatus, give you an idea of where your body is in terms of strengths and weaknesses and allow you to formulate personal goals. After your first private session it will be up to you and your instructor to decide if you are ready to move into a duet or a semi-private (group) session or need to take a few more private sessions.
