    Beginners Question: Level of Fitness

    Don't worry about this - No one will be expecting you to lift anyone for quite some time! If its dips and drops you're worried about - they are, like your butterfly stroke, more a matter of technique than brute strength. they are also pretty much optional especially as you'll be leading, and...

    So where exactly are you?
