Find the answers to your questions about my group fitness sessions here.
If you have a question that’s not covered here, drop me an email.
How does the 10 week block work?
Group sessions run on a continual 10 week block with the same start and finish dates for everybody. The sessions continue through school holidays.
Payment for the next 10 week block is due at the start of that 10 week block. I’ll send an email before it’s due to remind you. There are no joining fees.
You don’t need to attend the same sessions every week. This makes life easier for those with schedules that change from week to week.
You are welcome to join at any time; there is no need to wait for the start of the next 10 week block.
What happens if I miss a session?
Do we still train in wet weather?
Yep, a little rain won’t hold us back. At each training location there is an undercover area we can use. Sessions are rarely cancelled because of poor weather. If in doubt, check the BAS Health & Fitness Members’ Facebook page.
Can I bring children to the sessions?
Definitely! There are usually always children and babies at the 9.30am sessions. There is always a safe, dry place for them to play close to our workout.
New friendships are often formed at BAS sessions – between children as well as adults!
I have an injury – can i still join?
In most cases – yes.
If you are injured, let me know in the pre-exercise questionnaire you complete before you come to your first session.
My experience as a strength and conditioning coach training professional athletes gives means I’m dialled in to injury adaptation and can adjust on the spot for you. I have an expansive mix of equipment that means I can always adapt sessions to work around your injury.
If you have an injury, you’ll definitely benefit from doing the RRR sessions. I can also give you some rehab exercises to help you recover from injury and strengthen weak areas.
Can I train if I’m pregnant?
For most pregnant women – yes.
Exercising while pregnant is an important part of maintaining your physical and mental wellbeing. Maintaining a healthy body during pregnancy helps you return your pre-baby condition more quickly. It also helps reduce the risk of gestational diabetes.
I’ve just had a baby. Is it safe for me to train?
I recommend you wait at least six weeks (more if you’ve had a caesarean) and get clearance from your GP/obstetrician before beginning any exercise. Once you have medical approval, I’ll adapt your workout so that it’s at the right intensity for you.
What qualifications do you have?
I have a Masters of Exercise & Sports Science from the University of Sydney and a Bachelor of Exercise Science from Australian Catholic University.
I’m also an accredited Level 2 Strength & Conditioning Coach, a Level 2 Australian Weightlifting Federation Coach and Academy of Sport Speed qualified.
What kind of insurance do you have?
I have full public liability and professional indemnity insurance and a current first aid certificate.
