basically, my main barrier to this is cost. my local place has a compulsory induction session for $80. thereafter, individual classes are $25, or $1,500 for 12 months for 1-2 classes per week, plus a training pack. if I subtract the training pack and take two classes every week, that’s $10 per class, which isn’t too bad. but that’s upfront. I’d need $1,500 in cash for something that I don’t know if I’d do regularly.
what I might do is save up the $80 for induction plus $250 for a 10 pack of classes, and see how I go. but then if I decided I wanted to start straight away … hmmm. I don’t know. I might wait until the end of next semester, because I’ll be studying hard, and by then I might have enough money. it’s a shame it costs so much, though, because I’ve done one lot of 3-hour training and loved it, but … yeah. money.
