FAQs
I’m a beginner, which classes can I attend?

Any, and all, of them! Our classes are suitable for people at all levels with appropriate modifications available to help you ease into the class. At CORE+ we’re a welcoming and inclusive bunch, so there’s always someone here to help. We recommend taking advantage of the 3-week Introductory Offer to try out as many different classes as you can.

What do I need to know in order to prepare myself for my first class?

Arrive: 15 minutes early to register and set up (you can also save time by registering online beforehand)

Wear: Light and comfortable exercise gear. Avoid anything heavy that will weigh you down when you sweat. Leggings or shorts and a light top is perfect.

Bring: Water and a couple of towels (one to go over your mat in the room, and one for a shower afterwards). We sell bottled water, mats and towels at the studio, if you need.

Do I need my runners?

All our classes are low impact and performed in a thermo-controlled studio, so there’s no need for runners in CORE+ classes.

Do I need to book?

There’s no need to pre-book, but you are more than welcome to book online here if you’d prefer.

Either way, just check in with the friendly face behind the desk when you arrive at the studio.

Ok, one problem, I can’t touch my toes … can I still come along?

Absolutely. Flexibility is not a prerequisite (but it is something you’ll benefit from the more you come along and practice). In fact, it’s a reason you should come along.

Why the heat?

Our classes are practiced in a thermo-controlled studio space to assist with warming up the muscles, allowing for deeper and safer stretching.

The heat also elevates the heart rate, adding a cardiovascular element to your class for those seeking fitness benefits in addition to strength and flexibility.

As you sweat, your pores are opened and cleaned and your body has begun to detox. There is nothing quite like the glow you experience as a result of regular practice, as your eyes beam brighter and skin becomes clear and smooth.

The heated room really ensures you focus your mind and your breath, leading to better concentration and improved mental clarity.

We use different levels of heat for each class. You can check out detailed information on each class here.

What are the benefits?

The diverse range of CORE+ classes means that there are a multitude of positive outcomes as a result. The more classes you try, the more benefits you are likely to see. Just some of these include:

Fitness: high-intensity elements assist with weight loss and improved cardiovascular health.

Strength: from static postures to weight work, you’ll build strength and muscle tone in each CORE+ class.

Flexibility: consistent practice in the controlled environment of the heated room will enable you to reach new levels of personal flexibility

Mindfulness: by calming your mind and encouraging you to be present in the moment, CORE+ classes help reduce stress and anxiety in everyday life.

Skin: your skin will glow as the heat opens your pores and the sweat flushes away nasty toxins

By combining a range of cardio, weight work and stretching to your health and fitness program you’ll avoid plateauing. One thing we can assure you is that you’ll never get bored at CORE+!

I’m pregnant, can I still practice?

We’ve had many women continue to practice throughout their pregnancy. Most classes can easily be modified to reduce any risks for pregnant women.

Everybody is different, though, so we do advise you chat with your doctor or obstetrician to help you decide what’s best for you.

If you are trying to become pregnant, we have the same advice: chat with your doctor or obstetrician to work out what’s best for your individual situation

What pass is the best value?

If you plan on doing two or more classes per week, our fortnightly direct debit membership is the best value.  It works out to be as little as $10 per class if you visit three times per week.  We also have a range of different class packages available, click here to find out more.

Can I put my pass on hold?

Yes, if you’re going away on holidays, get struck down with the dreaded flu or need to put a hold on your pass for any other reason please let us know in advance and we’ll sort it out for you.
