In an industry where we are bombarded with so much information about training and nutrition it is no surprise that we can often get confused, skeptical and possibly apprehensive about lifting weights. Where do I start? What is safe? Will I put on weight?
There is often a lack of understanding and education in regards to the amazing benefits of strength training for the female body. We believe in educating our clients and enabling them to not be afraid to ask questions. What is the best training system in order to achieve my goals. What are the best foods to optimise my time in training.
We work smarter- this means that we focus on getting the most out of our training sessions by adopting strength training principles and progressive programming. This ensures that you are continually challenging your body in order to obtain ongoing results and avoid plateaus.
We are not a bootcamp service. We are not a CrossFit box. You are not just a number in the crowd. We make suitable progressions and regressions in all our training sessions to ensure every woman can progress at her own rate while maintaining optimal movement and correct technique. Our Coaches are highly skilled professionals who are continually learning and progressing to ensure we offer you nothing but the best.
What results can I expect?
You can expect to feel great almost immediately. You will be surrounded by a supportive network of females who are all looking to chase after their own specific goals. Within the first 2-4 weeks you will most likely start to feel fitter, stronger and start seeing physical changes within your body. You can expect to see lean muscle which will give you that “toned” appearance. We value respect and honesty in everything we do-your results are a reflection of your commitment and dedication to your goals.
Will I get bulky and gain a lot of weight from lifting weights?
No is the short answer. Building muscle is generally much harder for females as opposed to males. Men have more skeletal muscle than females which is why they are usually stronger than females. Men also release testosterone which is very important in muscle building. Combine strength training with a healthy, balanced diet and you will create that “toned” look you are after.
Are there meal plans?
We believe in educating and empowering you to make decisions in regards to all aspects of your life including your nutrition. You are a grown woman and do not need to be given a checklist. This is why you will not find a list of what you can and cannot eat. We will provide you with nutritionist approved guidelines on how to construct a balanced diet, 'BBB Nutrition Protocol'. Along with the guidance and support of our expert trainers we believe you will feel empowered to make confident choices no matter what situation you are in. When you are on holiday, out for dinner with your friends or preparing meals in the week, equipping you with the tools needed to make educated decisions is the key to our ladies success. You should never have to restrict any food groups completely, balance and moderation while still being able to obtain great results.
What if I am new and haven't trained before?
All members undergo a movement analysis and consultation with one of our Coaches. Your Coach will be able to identify any muscle weaknesses, structural imbalances and find out more about you. This allows us to provide us with the most appropriate package for you in relation to your goals and lifestyle.
What if I have injuries?
All our ladies are asked to complete a pre exercise screening form to identify any injuries or health concerns before commencing training. This will allow us to have options that are suitable for you and make recommendations to ensure you maximise your results.
What do I need to bring to sessions?
Ensure you arrive 5-10 minutes earlier so we can make the most out of the session and brief you accordingly. Bring a towel, water bottle and a positive attitude. Ensure you don't train on an empty stomach. If you find it uncomfortable to train on a full stomach, a banana can be a suitable pre workout snack. You will be given suitable warm ups to complete before your session starts.
