Welcome to SHIFT! I am so excited for this journey you’re about to embark upon with me. I want you to feel as prepared as possible when trying SHIFT for the first time, so here are a few pointers to help you on your way:
The first thing to do is to establish your workout space. Where are you going to work out? It needs to be a space where you can always workout regardless of what is happening in your home life. Some people can take over a whole room in the house for a workout space. For other people, it is the living room or garage. Find your space and figure out how to modify it to work for you. Clean and organize the space so it’s sanitary and comfortable for your workout. Make the space as motivating as possible.
You will need a yoga mat to work out on the floor. Yoga mats range in price and quality. Find the mat that is right for you. Footwear is optional. Some people like to work out in their sneakers and others prefer bare feet. Whatever works for you. The workout equipment needed for class are light weights, a resistance band, and a medicine ball. Here are a few examples of recommended exercise equipment:
SPRI Xertube Resistance Bands Check Amazon
P-volve 2lb Hand Weights Check Amazon
Mini XerBalls (Green or Black) Check Amazon
Online workouts are delivered through ZOOM. ZOOM is an app you can download to your desktop, tablet, or mobile phone. You log into the ZOOM app for the live work out. You will need to decide what hardware you want to have in your workout space to carry the workout live. If you have a large computer monitor for your desktop, you can see the workout clearly. Using a laptop is a popular way to watch online classes because it is more portable. A mobile phone gives you access to the class no matter where you are. It is great if you are travelling and need to work out on the road. Make sure your device is plugged in or fully charged before class starts. You do not want to run out of power during class.
WHAT TO WEAR
Every SHIFT class is performed in sneakers or barefoot. You’re going to sweat during a SHIFT class, so please wear comfortable workout clothes like a tee or tank top and form-fitting pants or shorts.
