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 women and enabling them to not be afraid to ask questions.
We work smarter and adopt a ‘minimum effective dose’ approach. This mean that we want to gain a positive result in the least amount of work possible. 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 the highest level of service.
You can expect to feel great almost immediately. You will be surrounded by a supportive network of women who are looking to chase their own specific goals. Within the first 2-4 weeks you will 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 and you get out what you put in.
No is the short answer. Building muscle is generally much harder for women as opposed to men. Men have more skeletal muscle than women which is why they are usually stronger than men. Men also release testosterone which is very important in muscle building. Combine strength training with a healthy, balanced diet and you will create a feminine, strong physique.
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 Coaches, 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.
All our ladies undergo a movement analysis and consultation prior to training. Your Coach will be able to identify any muscle weaknesses, structural imbalances and find out more about you. This allows us to provide you with the most appropriate program to ensure you are successful in your own health and fitness endeavours.
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.
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.
We are not like commercial gyms. We do not have memberships and you do not have to sign up for a long term contract. Your training is always with a BBB Coach. You are able to suspend or cancel your training at any time if you wish. All our ladies work with us for a minimum of 12 weeks to ensure that we can actually help with real goals.
