We get it. You’re new, and you haven’t got a clue.
You don’t know what to wear, what to bring, where to park, how to act, or what to say – and that’s O.K.
The good new is: All you’ve really got to do is turn up and get stuck in. Honestly that’s it. But just in case you have those ‘New Girl Niggles’ – here’s a very brief little list of the top things we get asked about by total newbs all the time, and our responses.
What To Do – If You’re New…
PACK a little gym bag the night before and put it in the car.
DON’T wear moisturiser
WEAR whatever you’d normally wear to the gym … for now
LEAVE all jewellery at home – Better left at home than left in class!
TAKE any medications before class, or bring them with you if necessary
IF YOU bruise like a peach, take your Arnica tablets now!
LEAVE early – city centre traffic can be a paaaiiin!
PARK at the market car park next door to the Crowne Plaza – it’s FREE!
DO the warm up – it’s important
LISTEN to any instruction given
DON’T talk over your instructor – it’s rude all round
DON’T do anything stupid
DO do stupid things! (safely and within reason)
DON’T hog the pole
DO be supportive – encourage, spot and have banter with your pole buddies
DON’T hold stuff in – if you feel you need to tell us something, please do
DON’T play the ‘I can’t do it’ card – YOU CAN AND YOU WILL!
DO have a crack at everything, even if you think you have no chance – you might be surprised!
TRUST us – we’re professionals!
ENJOY your class – it’s meant to be FUN!
