Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve all been there. Scary new gym, no idea how things work, don’t want to look like a noob. Fear not, brave new comrade! We have the answers detailed here for you in advance!
Q. I would like to try the classes. Do I need to book or can I just turn up?
A. Choose a class from our timetable that you would like to try, pop in 15 minutes early so we can grab some details & show you around. Easy as that!
Q. Can I trial the classes before making a decision about membership?
A. Of course! That’s why we created the Newbie Offer – $29 for a week of unlimited fitness & yoga classes with no obligation to join.
Q. How much is personal training or class membership?
A. All our services & prices can be found on our Join page.
Q. Can anyone use the gym outside of class times?
A. Only Anchor Training members. Currently we offer an “open gym hour” Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, 5-6pm to our dedicated members. A certified coach is required to be present in the gym during this time, and any obstacle-work must be approved and supervised.
Q. I can’t do yoga; I’m not flexible.
A. That’s not a question, but… Yoga is a balance of flexibility and strength, of discipline and surrender. It is not just a class for mindless stretching. It is a dedicated time to unwind physically and mentally so that we may become better at being, rather than doing. Flexibility will come with practice; it is neither a prerequisite nor the ultimate purpose.
Q. I’ve signed up for an Obstacle Course race, what kind of training should I do?
A. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for upcoming 6-10 week OCR courses. Alternatively, we offer OCR PT on a one-on-one or small group basis.
Q. Do you do training for corporate groups?
A. Absolutely! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your group size & preferred time so we can work together to promote a healthy lifestyle in the work place & build camaraderie.
Q. I have an injury/ medical condition; can I still exercise?
A. We will provide regression or alternatives for all movements that are not suitable for your situation. If you are concerned please feel free to email us prior to coming in at email@example.com.
Q. I am pregnant, do I have to let you know?
A. Yes, please! As your health professional it is important that we keep you & your growing baby safe by modifying some movement. This applies to fitness & yoga classes. Congratulations, by the way!
Q. Can I put my account on hold?
A. We can suspend your membership for a minimum of 2 weeks & maximum of 6 weeks per year due to vacation, or illness with doctor’s recommendation. A fee of $5/ week will apply.
Q. What if I have more questions?
A. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we’ll get back to you promptly.
