FAQ

Great idea. We offer a $5.00 1st class for all new KBOD friends. Select ‘Drop In’ from pricing menu and use promo code: KBODINTRO to apply discount. You must select the package first and then book class.

Then grab our NEW STUDENT OFFER / 6 Classes $60 / 1 month expiration. Both offers are a ‘one time’ purchase offer and must be purchased consecutively. This way you get a good feel for our studio and the range of classes we offer. Just click on Sign Up, fill in your details and book your class. Hey! Make sure you introduce yourself to the instructor. We love meeting new crew so make sure you turn up 10 minutes prior to class starting and say hi to the instructor.

We have a wide range of dance inspired workouts to challenge you. For choreography based classes, ​try​ BUSTA GROOVE for a more funky routine workout, FLASHDANCE for a little music video + musical theatre styled routine, or RETRO GROOVE to relive some of the best 70’s- 90’s music and moves.  If you like HIIT, try dance based KA POW or our 6 WEEK CHALLANGES  that run every 2 months. For barre/Pilates head to BARRE BLAST or FLOORBARRE.  For some zen, flexibility and mobility try STRETCH AND FLOW. All classes run 50mins.

If you are an absolute beginner or needing to start a little more low impact commence with BEGINNERS BUSTA GROOVE, BARRE BLAST, FlOORBARRE, and STRETCH AND FLOW. As you become fitter and more confident you can jump into KA POW.

Great question! We provide all equipment used in our classes.

To get the most out of your first class here’s a few things you’ll need to know.

  1. Be prepared. Turn up 10 minutes early for orientation.
  2. You’ll need correct footwear depending on your chosen class. Sneakers / grip socks. Bring your own socks or you can buy in the studio for $16.
  3. You are about to sweat, so bring a towel and plenty of water.
  4. We have lockers to keep your personals safe.
  5. 5 minutes late is too late. You’ll have to join us next time.
  6. If you have any niggling injuries or may be pregnant please let us know in advance via email hello@kbodfitness.com. Your trainer has a stash of alternative moves so remember to tell them before class.
  7. Changing your class is no problem. Check our Tc’s & C’s for cancellation policy. We do not handle bookings or cancellations via admin. We offer a self service booking system so you are in full control of the ‘whats’ and ‘whens’.
  8. Have the best time!

Well you are in the perfect place to fix that, and we are so proud of you for giving it ago despite your concerns. Our workouts are designed for all levels. Our instructors are highly trained and know when to push you and when to allow you some time to recoup. We also offer modifications in our exercises to cater for the varying levels.

We are here to support and guide you in your journey to being your best self. Remember that it takes more then 1 session to realise those goals.

If you are really unsure drop us an email outlining your fitness experience and history and we will gladly point you in the right direction.

If you’re new to regular exercise or it’s been a while between workouts, we recommend one class every three days for the first two weeks. This will give your body time to adjust and get used to moving regularly, as well as giving your hard working muscles time to repair and recover.

Once you’ve found your groove we recommend you take 4-5 classes per week to feel the benefits of our programs. We encourage all clients to mix up their workouts between strength and cardio focused classes –  this will offer you the maximum benefit. Price incentives are extended to committed clients in the form of class packages and memberships. If you are needing assistance email us for a class-based program design session.

That’s totally normal! When we exercise our hearts pump more blood to our muscles. This is hard work for the heart, so it needs more oxygen. That’s where the lungs, and the huffing and puffing come in. Your breathlessness is directly related to your level of fitness. If you’re still working on your fitness you’ll definitely be out of breath from time to time. This’ll decrease as you get fitter and you’ll be able to work at a higher intensity for longer periods.

If you’ve worked really hard or are getting back into exercise after a break, you can expect some muscle soreness. All that hard work has created tiny little tears in your muscles (don’t stress, that’s supposed to happen!) and your body now has to work to repair them. The good news? The pain’s temporary. The great news? Your muscles will be stronger than they were before, meaning YOU’RE stronger than you were before.

Movement keeps the stiffness at bay so go for a walk, have a swim or stretch it out. If you’re really really sore, fill a bath with Epsom salts and have a soak for half an hour and/or go for a massage. Reward your bod for all its hard work!

Muscle is denser than fat, so yep, by volume it does weigh more. And this is exactly why you shouldn’t just focus on the numbers on the scale. Think of it this way: a 70kg athlete who’s lean and muscular can weigh the same as someone who sits on the couch all day. But they look completely different – on the inside and the outside.

Building muscle is super important for weight loss. That’s because the more muscle mass you have, the more efficient your body is at burning fat. This explains why someone with low muscle density loses weight quicker than someone like our 70kg athlete (who may not lose any weight at all).

Nope! We’re more than happy for you to come to KBOD Fitness classes whenever the time is ala perfect for you. You can purchase a single class with no strings attached. If you decide you like the junk in our trunk (so to speak), then we are excited for you to stay on board as long as you like and offer a range of different class packages and Memberships to suit your needs. And because we want to be BFFs: best friends forever; the longer you sign on for, the more you save $$, the more results you see, the more we get to know you AND the more we will hear from you. Take photo’s of yourself working out and upload them to our Facebook or tag us on Instagram. We love our positive KBOD Fitness community! #KBODFITNESS #KBODFAMILY
