You should wear comfortable clothes that leave you arms free and do not restrict movement. Layers are a good idea as you will be exercising indoors. Your shoes should be comfortable, flexible and secure. Smooth soles are highly recommended so that you can easily turn on the ball of the foot. Heavy shoes, raised soles or high heels are very much to be avoided.
