I've been teaching for over 12 years and the hardest part of my job is trying to read your mind before class!  We are trained to ask questions that will help us prepare you for class (i.e. do you have any pains, heart conditions, are you pregnant, etc).  But there are many other pieces of info that, if we know, we can make your experience so much better. 

I found this article and wanted to share it.  Whether it's your first ride or 100th ride, if any of these pertain to you, please let your instructor know!
