As mentioned before, you do not need ANY kind of professional experience or expertise for paragliding as it is completely guided by trained professionals. There are no conditions for fitness levels except that the acceptable weight limit ranges from 15kg-80kg. It is also suggested that heart patients, blood-pressure patients and pregnant women do not opt for this adventure as it may be stressing and anxiety-triggering for some. Once at the site, you will be given a helmet and jacket that will protect you from the wind, this gear will be included in the gliding cost. It is recommended that you wear well-fitting sunglasses, sports shoes and jeans/tracks for maximum protection and comfort while you dive into the air. No need to carry anything for this sport!
