Why try Strength Train Together?
- It’s easy to work at your own pace and choose your weights for class—so if you’re new to exercise or are at peak performance, this class is for you.
- It’s a great way to add strength training into your exercise routine—especially if you’re not sure where to start, or are unsure of trying the weight room solo.
- It’s realistic to see success quickly—coming to class just once or twice a week can really start to show.
Tips for your first class
- Arrive a few minutes before class to introduce yourself to the instructor—they can answer any questions you might have and help you select starting weights.
- Pick a spot near the center of the room so that you can clearly see the instructor throughout class.
- You can wear weight-training gloves to class, but they are not required.
- Don’t forget to have fun and remember that class is YOUR time—it’s not a competition, so be sure to listen to your body during the workout and if you need to stop and rest, or to adjust weights, please do.
- After class, check in with your instructor if anything was particularly challenging during the workout—they can offer ideas and ways to make your next class even better.
