    Hello all,

    Two questions…

    1. Does anyone know of KM classes in the Pittsburgh, PA area?

    2. What are the best exercises to prepare for my first class?

    Thank you

    Wanted to welcome you to the forum:wav:

    As for preparing, please know it’s not required you’re in top shape to start. Quite a few of us here can tell you how OUT of shape we were when we were newbies. Working on endurance may be a good place to start.

    Best of luck in your trainingthumbsup

    Mara Jade,

    Thank you for the information. I figured cardio is the best way to prepare.

    In my opinion, interest in KM is going to explode in the US.

    Brad I agree but there isn’t a place to train within 120 miles of Pittsburgh.

    Re #2: Unless you’re already in decent (or better) shape, the 1st class will likely push you to your cardio and physical limits. I can’t really think of anything that could help prepare…maybe do all of the jumping jacks, push-ups, crunches, split lunges, mountain-climbers, planks and bridges you can, each until physical failure. Then push yourself to do more.:Surprised:

    I am still a n00b, but IMO, mental preparation may be more beneficial than trying to physcially prepare (unless you have several weeks before class). Have an open mind, be prepared to work hard, physcially and mentally, at learning what Krav teaches. Technique is important, but so is mindset. The first few classes will be very difficult in many ways. I was sore from head to toe for a few days after my 1st lesson.

    Oh, if you’re a guy, wear a cup.

    Have fun, let us know how it goes!
