Do sign up for a race.

Do buy yourself a workout outfit you feel comfortable and confident in.

Don’t reward yourself with food (get yourself that outfit above instead.)

Do stretch and use a foam roll.

Don’t be afraid to ask the gym staff questions (RVC has someone “working the floor” from 7am to 7pm. They’re the guys in maroon polo shirts. Your gym may have staff to help you as well.)

Do try a new class.

Do introduce yourself to the instructor.

Do introduce yourself to your classmates.
