Fit Tip: Spy Before You Try

We've all been there: you waltz into a new group glass at the gym only to discover that the yoga is far beyond your reach or the dance moves are better suited to fly girls than fitness buffs. Getting in over your head can not only be embarrassing, but it can also lead to injuries.

So before you wander into a class based on a friend's recommendation or a cool-sounding description, stop by the week prior and peek into the studio. Position yourself outside the door or in the back of the room and observe five to 10 minutes of the class, enough to get a sense of whether or not it's for you. It's best to come in at least 10 minutes into it, so you can observe post-warmup.
