I AM NERVOUS TO GO TO A CLASS ALONE ......

Pleeeeaaaaaase dont worry. You will be made to feel most welcome when you come and join us at Keep Fit Cornwall. We pride ourselves on welcoming any fitness level, body shape, size and age to our fitness classes. We will always recommend that you arrive to your first class with us 15 mins early so your instructor can meet you and put you at ease if you are feeling a little anxious. 90% of our participants come to class alone - even the instructors!

WHAT DO I WEAR? ......

Good question! We would recommend comfy clothes that are easy to move around in. Remember, you will probably get very hot so thin clothing may be best. A supportive shoe, like a trainer, is ideal to wear to our classes as we do jump around !!!

WHICH TRAINERS ARE RIGHT FOR ME? ......

Everyones feet are so different so its hard to recommend ''one pair'' that are good for everyone. From my experience, a neutral running shoe (Asics do some really great ones) would suit most people for the exercise classes we deliver. I can not stress enough that when you go into a shop to buy trainers, try more then one pair on !!! Whichever ones feel the most ''bouncy / springy'' I would buy. Another tip is to wear a padded sock for working out (Primark do some fab ones) and maybe a gel insole (around £7) for additional support

HOW MANY CALORIES DO I BURN OFF PER SESSION? .......

This is something I get asked a lot !!!! Every exercise class is different so will all vary on how many calories you burn. Our classes are very cardio based so on average we will burn off around 100 calories every 10 minutes. So in total a Keep Fit Cornwall class will burn on average 600 calories ...... not bad eh !!!?

I HAVE NO CO-ORDINATION ........ !!

Now if I have £1 for every time someone said this to me, I would be a very rich women !!! On a more serious note, this is a really big concern for people so we work very hard on each of our moves that are taught in our classes to ensure they are easy to follow - this is a big key in making fitness classes enjoyable for any age, fitness level, shape and size :-) Please be assured you will be in very safe hands :-)
