Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a certain level of fitness?
No, we work with women through all ages and stages. All of our exercises can be progressed or regressed to suit each individual. Once we start training with you and get to know what your capabilities or restrictions are we will be able to give you modified versions to suit your individual level. If you are unsure of an exercise or think it might aggravate a pre-existing injury, please stop, and ask the Instructor to modify it for you.
What do I need to bring?
Please bring a towel and water bottle to all sessions. For Boxing classes you will need to wear inners or wraps. Inners can be purchased throught the PT Minder App/Website . For our weights based classes you may want to consider wearing weight gloves, there are ones in Sports Stores with Wrist Straps if you have weak wrists. It is also a good idea to keep a wrist sweat band in your gym bag for when we do Kettlebell work. Bottled water is available for purchase through PT Minder.
Do I need to book classes?
Yes, every group fitness class or open gym session needs to be booked through the PT Minder App/Website.

Do I need a partner for boxing?
No, we will match you with someone of similar strength, ability and height. Cotton inners are compulsory to keep the gloves fresh and your hands hygienic (purchase the the Products section in the PT Minder App/Website). Boxing Gloves & Focus Mits will be supplied however you are very welcome to bring your own if you prefer.
Can I bring my kids to classes?
Yes, kids and babies are more than welcome at all of our 9:15am, 4:30pm and 5:30pm classes/sessions. Our Creche is free for all members and only $3 per session, per child for casuals. For their own safety, and that of our Embrace clients, please keep children out of the main training area. You are very welcome to bring snacks for them (no nuts or popcorn please), just keep in mind what might be easier for them to eat. Please don't bring your child if they are sick, we want to provide a healthy environment for all our Embrace kiddies. Bookings are not required for Creche.

What if I have an injury?
If you have any injuries or medical conditions that may affect your workout please speak to the instructor before the class so that they can modify the exercises to suit where required.

Our trainers are very approachable and will accommodate to suit as recommended by your Doctor or Physio.
