CREATIVE ACTION SQUAD FAQ
Who can take part in Creative Action Squad sessions?
Sessions cater for women who:
- Would like to start up, get back into, or maintain an exercise routine
- Want motivation and support from like-minded individuals in a positive environment
- Want to improve their fitness and tone up
- Any exercise level, any experience level, doesn’t matter if you’ve got good coordination or not. As long as you’re keen to give things a go and open to try new things – the aim is to just get moving!
Can my children come with me?
Babies and toddlers are welcome to come to all Squad Sessions apart from yoga (which is for grownups only) at no extra cost.
If you choose to bring your child, feel free to bring a pram, bouncer, play gym or anything else that may keep your child entertained. While I do my best to keep an eye on any kids with us, please understand that your child/ren are your responsibility while you are training and it’s good to be mindful of other participants’ Squad session experience as well.
When and where are the training sessions?
Please see my timetable along with more info on Creative Action Squad sessions here. It’s important that you book into the sessions you would like to attend each week so I can contact you if there are any changes to the session such as venue or waitlist openings.
Limited spaces are available each session so you will need to book the days you wish to attend when you sign up; if you can’t attend your session/s for emergency reasons, you may be able to attend a makeup session within the same week if numbers and training space allow.
How long are the training sessions?
Most group classes are approximately 45 minutes (includes stretching at the end). I would love you to stay for the whole thing, but if you’re just getting back into training you need to listen to your body so just do whatever you can and aim to build on it the next time you come.
What do I need to bring?
For all of the group personal training classes:
- An exercise mat
- A workout towel
- A drink bottle of water
- Any relevant medication (such as an asthma inhaler)
If you are planning to bring your child, please bring anything they might need to stay comfortable and entertained during the workout such as a pram or their favourite toys.
How do I book in and pay?
Once you’ve applied to train with me, I’ll get in touch to discuss your registration. If successful and your place in the Squad is accepted, you can purchase your desired package via the shop (credit card via Paypal, or Laybuy over 6 weeks if you have a Laybuy account).
You can also make payments by cash in person before your sessions begin, or by transferring directly to my bank account. Please contact me for these details if you require them.
Can I do a trial session?
Yes, you can do a one-off trial class if you haven’t participated in a Squad session before for free (conditions apply). You will still need to fill out a registration form and let me know you’re interested in trialling. If you decide to continue on a membership, it may be prorated depending on sessions already missed/taken and you will still need to pay the one-off registration fee.
I’ve just had a baby, when can I get started?
As a qualified prenatal and postnatal yoga teacher (and as a mum myself), I have a good understanding of what happens to the body during and after pregnancy! I consider safe training to be a top priority. If you’ve recently had a baby your body has been through a lot; because of this I require clearance from your midwife, GP or medical practitioner that you’ve been given the official okay to resume exercise.
Most medical professionals recommend to wait until at least 6 weeks after giving birth, however as every pregnancy and birth is different this can vary. Please note that I won’t take on clients who are less than 6 weeks postpartum – longer if you have had a caesarean section or complicated delivery. Please listen to your body; don’t force yourself back into exercising if you’re still not feeling ready for it.
