FAQs

Do I need to be of a specific fitness level already to participate?

No, you can be any fitness level. We just work with you to ensure you’re doing the right set of exercises for your fitness level.

I’ve previously been injured. Can I still come along?

The key is to ensure you don’t aggravate your injury any further. During our sessions we will ensure you are doing the right set of corrective exercises for your injury. We can also refer you to some of Sydney’s best professionals for further assistance with your injury.

What do I need to bring along to each session?

Water and a towel. You may be required to bring a mat along with you but you will be advised after you SIGN UP.

Do you provide any equipment?

I provide all equipment required for each training session.

How many people an I expect at a GROUP FITNESS session?

We don’t take any more than 20 people.

How long does each session last for?

Each session lasts for 45 minutes, except Saturday which lasts for 60 minutes. We keep our sessions short and punchy to ensure you get the best workout possible in a short time frame.

How many GROUP FITNESS sessions are there each week?

We offer 5 classes each week for general GROUP FITNESS, and 3 classes each week for MUMS & BUBS.

I love the social aspect of GROUP FITNESS. What other activities are there for those who attend these sessions?

Our clients often become good friends. We have a number of social activities our clients can enjoy to celebrate their hard work and achievements. We have a night out with drinks each quarter, movie nights when there is a relevant chick flick, coffee and fruit at the end of Term 4, a team in the Mother’s Day Classic each year as well as an end of year Christmas dinner celebration.

I have a demanding with lots of deadlines so I might need to arrive late or leave early. Is that OK?

Yes but we don’t encourage lateness as you would have missed out on a lot of warm up beforehand which is a vital part of the exercises we do. If you do need to leave early, let us know straight away and we’ll encourage you to do a full set of stretches before you leave.

Do you train pregnant women?

Yes. We work with pregnant women. If you are pregnant and have been consistently exercising before you fell pregnant, you can pretty much do what you have been doing as long as your body temperature does not get too high. If you haven’t been exercising consistently, we have to just monitor you more carefully. We would also have you not do certain exercises such as crunches, but have you work on pelvic floor strength and core work to prepare for birth. In all my sessions technique is very important and I will always offer a low impact version or alternative exercise.

I don’t have a baby. Can I still come along?

Yes of course. We are all inclusive. If you have a toddler or an older child, they can come along too. We also welcome mums, aunts and grandparents to our sessions. We just mix up the exercises to suit their requirements.

Do you provide toys or blanket for babies to be on and play with during the Mums & Bubs sessions?

Yes, we provide a rug and toys. We also bring along paper and colouring pencils for the toddlers.

What do I need to bring along to each session?

Water and a towel. You may be required to bring a mat along with you but you will be advised after you SIGN UP. If you have a toddler, bring some food for them to help keep them occupied.

Do you provide any equipment?

I provide all equipment required for each training session.

I’ve just given birth. When can I start attending your MUMS & BUBS sessions?

You need to wait until you’ve had your 6 week post-natal check up before you can start attending. I also recommend you visit a post-natal physio to make sure your body is fully ready to engage in regular exercise again.

How many people an I expect at a MUMS & BUBS session?

We don’t take any more than 15 people.

How long does each session last for?

Each session lasts for 45 minutes. That’s enough time for mums to get a good workout, and babies before they start to be too unsettled.

How many MUMS & BUBS sessions are there each week?

We offer 3 classes each week where babies and toddlers are welcome.

My baby is unsettled so I may have to arrive late or leave early. Is that OK?

Yes but we don’t encourage lateness as you would have missed out on a lot of warm up beforehand. If you do need to leave early, let us know straight away and we’ll encourage you to do a full set of stretches before you leave.

Do you honestly run sessions rain or shine?

Most of my sessions are outdoors and I advise via SMS if they are cancelled. We do run sessions rain or shine but we won’t run a session outdoors if raining as the comfort of your baby is paramount! We now have indoor space to run sessions when wet which means we never have to cancel.

Do I receive a tailored program specific to my needs?

Yes! We will sit down with you to discuss what goals you want to achieve, by what time frame and where you’re at currently with your fitness. This will determine what program we put together for you.

Do I need to train outdoors like you do with your GROUP FITNESS or MUMS & BUBS classes?

The idea with personal coaching is that you can train anywhere, anytime. It’s great if your schedule doesn’t lend well to attending set class times. You can train outdoors if you wish, or you can train indoors in your lounge room or in a hotel room if you travel often for work. You can literally choose where and when best suits you – that’s the beauty of having personal coaching.

Will I need any special training equipment?

No. We tailor the program to ensure you maximise your environment to do your workout. That means you don’t need to buy any special training equipment.

How often would you review the program for each client?

We do an assessment every 6-8 weeks to ensure you are continually pushing yourself to achieve your goals.

How often would you contact me to keep me motivated?

When we sit down to set your program, we’ll go through how you best like to be coached. I can meet you face to face once or twice a week depending on your needs, or I can coach you online. It might even be a combination of the two.

How do you ensure my goals are realistic and achievable?

When we first begin we will discuss what you want to achieve. If it’s unrealistic we will let you know. When we meet or talk online, we will discuss how your week has been, what has been challenging and what has worked. We also ask you what you might have done differently and put plans in place for the coming week. No doubt you will be pretty tough on yourself if you fall of the wagon and when those times happen, we will be empathetic and give you lots of guidance and support.

Can you offer me nutrition advice?

Exercise is just one piece of the puzzle to overall great health. Nutrition is the other piece. We can show you what worked for our other clients and guide you to eating the best food for your health and wellbeing. If you have specific goals such as competing in events, we can provide advice on the best foods to eat leading up to the event, and on the day of the event.
