How it Works / FAQ’s
They have a saying in Bali… “Good for you – Good for me!”
We LOVE this concept as it’s based on courtesy, mutual co-operation and creating Win/Wins all round! ♥️ We try to base our business on the same philosophies, so read on to find out how it all works!
HOW IT WORKS –
Some of our classes are “progressive” (ie. they’re either instructional or progressive based around fitness/ability), so we run our classes in 12 weeks block which we call Terms/Seasons. Around 4 weeks before a new term starts, we release new timetables, but don’t worry – we try not to change them too much – but it does allow for us to tweak things as necessary and add additional classes to meet the needs of our growing community.
With the exception of Public Holidays, Christmas and a quick Mid-Year break (to re-charge the batteries), our classes operate all year round (even during school holidays).
BOOKING YOUR CLASS/es
You can book your classes week-to-week OR up to 4 weeks ahead! As our class sizes are quite small (max of 8 per class), we strongly recommend you to book ahead especially if your own availability is limited – and of course to avoid missing out on a spot in your favourite class/es.
MISSED CLASSES –
Can’t make it to one of your classes? No problem! We understand that life sometimes gets in the way, but we do urge all members to exercise courtesy and cancel out of the class you can’t make! This opens up your place so someone else can jump in, and you can book a alternative class on another day/time that suits. Just login to your Mindbody account (on your computer or the mobile app), go to your Schedule and click Early Cancel. Easy as…
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: If you fail to show for a class, and HAVEN’T cancelled out at least 6 hours before, you will be forfeiting that class.
If a class you would like to attend is already fully booked, you can still put your name on the Wait List! If someone else cancels out of the class (see above), the Mindbody system will notify you BY EMAIL that a place has become available and you can jump in. You’ll just need to confirm that you wish to take that spot.
MINIMUM CLASS SIZES –
All group classes have a capacity of maximum of 8 people per class, and require a minimum of 4 for a class to go ahead. If by 3 hours before a class commences there are less than 4 people booked, we reserve the right to cancel the class and notify all participants who will (of course) be given the opportunity to re-schedule an alternative class.
I’ve booked in. Is there anything else I need do before starting classes?
Other than book and pay for your classes, there is nothing else you need to do. You’re fine to just show up for your first class. It is best to join from the beginning of the term if possible so you don’t miss out on anything.
How many classes a week do you recommend to get results and/or meet my goals?
As with any form of exercise, the more you do, the faster you’ll get there! We recommend 2-3 classes a week with a rest day in between where possible. If you’re just starting out with exercise, or recovering from an injury or illness, start off with 2 classes. If all you can manage is 1 class a week, don’t sweat it. You’ll still see results (it’ll just be a little slower) – but you’ll have a ton of fun doing it!
What should I wear for these classes?
Either full length or 3/4 Leggings or Bike Shorts is the best. Short shorts (like we wear for pole dancing) are not great for these classes – and just make sure whatever you wear is snug fitting so there are no wardrobe malfunctions during class.
On the top a singlet top or short sleeve t-shirt – and crop tops are totally acceptable in my classes (you’re going to get a bit sweaty).
Footwear – although I’m a huge fan of the barefoot workout, for Bungee FiiT & Strong classes you’ll be best off with some soft, flexible shoes (I love my Skechers). For Bungee Barre/Pilates, you can wear soft shoes OR grip socks… whichever you’re most comfortable with.
What else do I need to bring with me?
With Covid-19 still lurking around, please bring your own yoga mat.
You’ll also need 2 towels. 1 larger towel to lay on your mat and a smaller one for your body – I did mention you’re gonna get sweaty 🙂
You’ll also need a bottle of water. We take regular water breaks during class so make sure you bring plenty (600ml – 1 ltr).
Are the classes instructional, or do we just follow along?
Some of our classes are progressive – ie. there is a curriculm that allows you to learn as you go… but in saying that, I ALWAYS give full instructions in classes and am there to assist you with anything you are not sure about. You will never be left to just try to work it out for youself.
Do you offer Casual or Taster Classes?
We do offer Casual Classes, but as our class sizes are small (and often fully booked), casual places are subject to availability in a class. We recommend checking with Cherene for availability before purchasing a Casual Class.
I’m hooked! When and how can I book for the next term?
A few weeks before a new term starts, we release the timetables for the following term and open bookings. As our class sizes are quite small (max of 8 per class), we strongly urge you to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
I’m pregnant! Can I still do these classes?
Firstly – CONGRATULATIONS! If you get clearance from your doctor you can still participate in our Bungee Barre/Pilates style classes, but we DO NOT recommend any high impact or flying classes until after the baby has arrived – sorry!
