Frequently Asked Questions

What are Total Body Fitness classes like?

Every class is a fun and challenging mix of mobility, strength and aerobic work, all with an emphasis on technique. You get a well-balanced full body workout that encourages you to progress in a motivating, non-competitive setting.

Expect the unexpected because you’ll never get the exact same workout twice. One day its medicine balls and TRX suspension trainers, the next it’s kettlebells and resistance bands, and every class includes some exercises that use no implements at all… just your body!

Classes average between 4-6 people so that each client receives individual attention (or modifications as needed). You get the benefits of a personal trainer with the camaraderie of a small group class. Your first session is free so come give it a try! All levels welcome.  

Fun + hard work = results that will keep you coming back for more.

I’d like to take group classes. What if I’m not at the same level as the others?

All levels are welcome in Total Body Fitness classes. I’ll adapt the exercises, tempo or weights to suit your current level (for example the number of reps you can do in 60 seconds is up to you!).

If you don’t feel quite ready to dive in, consider Basic Body.

In Basic Body you’ll learn the technique and correct movement patterns for key exercises practiced in Total Body Fitness classes while continuing to develop your foundation of mobility, stability, strength and metabolic conditioning. Appropriate for all levels, ages, and post-partum. For those at an advanced level, this class will provide a full body workout with the opportunity to finesse and master fundamentals.

Sometimes a few private sessions can be just what the doctor ordered. We’ll work on your specific fitness needs to help you ramp up.

Looking to be in a group of your cohorts? Ask me about post-natal or Ladies 65+ classes.

Can I bring my baby to class? What if s/he cries the whole time?

Babies are 100% welcome in class. It’s hard to get a workout in during those first few months with baby. The goal of the class is to get you moving so you can start feeling strong again, so you do whatever it takes. If that means bringing the baby, terrific! If that means having the baby watched by someone else, terrific!

Ab separation, pelvic floor issues, c-sections, tight hips and rounded shoulders are just a few of the special considerations of post-natal moms! My post-natal fitness class focuses on (re)developing strength and stability in the areas hardest hit by pregnancy, delivery and caring for baby.  

Within a few months of training you just might find that your core stability, glute strength, and upper back posture are better than they ever were! And if your baby cries, no worries. We’ve all been there. I’ll gladly hold her myself so you can get your work done.
