Give yourself time to find street parking. North Park is popular so sometimes spots fill up. You should be able to find a spot no more than two blocks away – just consider it your warm up. **Do NOT park in our neighbors lot, they are quick to tow.**
We have a cold water filter for you to refill your water bottle. We also sell: water bottles, recovery drinks, cold brew coffee, Rx Bars, and meat sticks.
We recommend hard, flat-soled shoes like Chuck Taylors or minimalist-type footwear. Barefoot training is also encouraged. This allows for better body connection to the floor and greater stability. If your toes are shy, socks are an alternative as well.
Sometimes our members get a little sweaty. We have complimentary towels available. Help yourself to one, but please place it in the hamper before you leave.
Yes, there is a tablet by the front desk that you can use to check in.
It depends. Most members will start off with at 3-5 classes per week. We suggest you take a look at your schedule and really make time to get to class. It’s easy to come up with excuses or be “too busy”. You’ve already taken the first step so don’t let this opportunity to start a new fitness journey get away. If you are having any issues please let one of our trainers know and we will try to help.
Probably! Very often when somebody tries something new or uses muscles in a way they aren’t used to, they get sore. Sometime, extremely sore. This is good and bad. Good because they are identifying and working previously dormant musculature and bad because it may discourage you from continuing to workout. Your best bet is to keep moving, stretch, drink lots of water, and keep moving. I suggest you take another class as soon as possible.
No, this is common. As your body adapts to new things it stop becoming as sore. Don’t mistake this for a lack of effort or work. Soreness is not the indicator of a good workout. Studies have shown that soreness itself (using a scale from 0 to 10 to assess the level of soreness) is poorly correlated as an indicator of muscle adaptation and growth. Don’t let your level of soreness become your barometer of success.
