Where can I get the required equipment?
The equipment is sold by each franchisee at a cost of $40.00 (taxes included). It includes an elastic resistance and a thermal mattress.
*The Cardio-Express class doesn’t require any additional equipment.
What happens when it rains, or when it’s very hot or cold?
It’s quite rare that a class gets cancelled. The idea is to dress according to the weather.
In the event of a thunderstorm, or when the temperature dips below –25°C, the class may be cancelled. Participants may replace such a class with another from the program schedule.
In times of extreme heat, the Cardio Muscle Toning and Cardio-Stroller classes are modified in intensity (or replaced by an Outdoor Zen class).
How should I dress?
As you would if you were going hiking or cross-country skiing. The activities don’t require special clothing.
