Im new to working out. Is there anything i should or shouldn't do?

All classes however are scalable to all levels and abilities and our coaches are 100% all about technique before anything else
Should i warm up and or stretch before class?
Unless advised otherwise we always have a warm up session before the session that is targeted towards activating and warming up set muscles. If you find yourself with a little extra time before or after class, feel free to start warming up on your own, practice skills, or just socialize. All we ask is that you come in on time ready to do some work.
How quick will i see results and how many classes a week should i attend ?
We recommend all members attend three classes per week as a minimum, this ensures that your getting to a wide variety of classes to greater your chance of results. Be mindful that good rest and recovery is just as important as a good workout.
How quick you get results depends on how you apply your self to your training and just as importantly your nutrition.
Will i get massive if i lift weights?
This is a common concern, especially for women, when really it shouldn’t be. Generally speaking, women are not hormonally predisposed to building large amounts of muscle. Adding lean mass requires dedication to a high-calorie diet and a focus on lifting heavy weights, often. While weightlifting is a key component in our programming, it is just part of a wider fitness model.
What about nutrition?
Without proper nutrition your body will not be able to withstand the workouts or activities of daily living. Regardless of your fitness goals (increased strength, weight-loss, special race/event, etc.), nutrition is the driving force behind these ambitions. Establishing proper eating patterns will not only fuel your body for the workouts, but aid in energizing it throughout your day. Failing to get your nutritional intake in check will result in slowed progress with our program. The basic concept behind eating the right things in the right portions is simple: Eat meat, vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruits, minimal amounts of starch and sugar.
