At your first class we will want to discuss the program with you either before or after the class, please let us know which works best for you.
When you schedule your first class, we will also make payment arrangements with you. Polaris is currently able to accept cash or checks.
What to wear
This is an physical activity – please wear clothes you can move in and don’t mind damaging. Though it is unlikely you will damage your clothing the first day, we want you to be prepared for when class gets more active. You can wear anything from exercise clothes (sweats etc.) to jeans and a t-shirt, just make sure you are comfortable moving in it.
Please wear closed toe shoes that you can run in.
If your first class is in the winter – you may want to wear layers. Though we do practice indoors, it is helpful to allow you body to warm up slowly, and remove layers as necessary.
What to Bring
Water or sports drinks – it is important to stay hydrated during physical activity
Snacks – if you think you will need a refreshment during the two hour class
