WORKOUT GEAR & WHAT TO BRING
We encourage you to bring: a mat or beach towel (for abs), a small towel (for sweat), water and a resistance band for strength training.
What kind of band?
Go to Target, Wal-Mart, Academy or other store (Marshall’s next to Fit has them for less than $10 sometimes) and pickup a “resistance band” with handles. You will have many options for weight or tightness of the band (determines how hard it is to lift). We recommend that you get one of the lightest bands. Why? You can always make the band harder (we will show you) but if you get one that’s too tight or heavy, you won’t be able to do overhead things like shoulder presses.
Please get a good pair of cross training shoes or running shoes! This is soooo important. You don’t want to end up with shin splints, or worse, falling down because of lack of support from your workout shoe. You want to have support for your ankles and avoid knee or hip injuries.
