	[accordion_item id='item-1' header='What should I expect in my first class?']Be prepared to feel a little clumsy and lost at times - and don't get down on yourself for it. Even if you're a highly conditioned runner or you've been doing step aerobics for years, these movements & our format are new to your body. Your muscles need time to develop a "memory" of them, and your reactions as the teacher calls out what to do ("jab, cross, hook) will be slow at first. By the second or third class, the awkwardness will start to dissipate. We encourage to come as you are and dig deep - continue to move at a comfortable pace and the rest will fall in line with time...[/accordion_item]
