A note about the tech.
Pairing technology and exercise is easy to do with all of the options available on the marketplace, but if you can avoid it, don’t use these apps on a tiny smartphone. Allow yourself a bigger screen to better see the teacher and his or her movements. Try a tablet with at least a 9-inch retina display and lots of battery life.
