FAQS

How fit or experienced do I have to be to start?

You don’t have to have any level of fitness to begin at Lissome. Our members are women of all ages (16 – 60), abilities, shapes and sizes! We train women who have NEVER exercised before and teach them absolutely everything they need to know. We understand how frightening it can be trying something new, so we do all that we can to welcome you and make you feel comfortable on your first day!

Do you have shower facilities?

Yes, we most certainly do! You are welcome to use our beautiful bathrooms before or after a workout. We have hairdryers, straighteners, moisturizers, make up, cleansers, soaps, shampoos, conditioners and the bathroom is constantly made pretty with candles and fresh flowers!

Do you have kitchen facilities?

Yes, we do! We have a fully stocked, functioning kitchen that has a huge fridge, oven, microwave, coffee machine, blender and plenty of crockery and cutlery! You can prepare your breakfast before going to work or hang out and have some nuts or a smoothie before a workout!

What do I need to bring on my first visit?

All you need is a bottle of water, a sweat towel and a sense of CAN DO! Make sure you arrive 20 minutes early for your first class to meet the coach and settle in.

Do you have a creche or child minding facilities?

We have a kid’s room stocked with toys, a TV and DVD player and some bean bags for comfort. It’s to the side of the gym floor so easily seen while training. This is suitable for toddlers. We also have a play pen, ball pit and softer plush toys for smaller children which is accessible upon request. Mum’s are welcome to leave children in their prams to the side of the gym floor.

Where do I park?

We have 4 car spots allocated to us which are painted bright PINK! If you can’t get into one of those, you are welcome to park on the street which is approximately 50m away.

Where are you located?

Drive to the end of Fitzroy street and turn right into the last driveway. Drive to the end of the carpark and we are located on the left.

Do you offer personal training?

Yes, all our coaches are also qualified personal trainers and offer one on one and small group sessions. If you are new (under 6 months) to this type of training, we would recommend you do this to help with the foundational movement patterns so that you can get the most out of your training at Lissome.

If I sign up, am I locked in to any contract?

There are absolutely NO contracts! We do recommend that you stick to the program for at least 12 weeks though, to best learn the movements and work toward achieving your health and fitness goals.

Will I get ‘bulky’ from this style of training?

NO – is the simplest answer. It is biologically impossible for women to ‘bulk’ up due to testosterone levels, unless training and eating is specific to muscle hypertrophy.  Our Founder, Nerida stripped 20kg to expose a lean and toned body thanks to this style of training and a supportive lifestyle (read her story). Our program is written by women, for women. It is a constantly varied, high intensity and functionally focused program to support longevity and vitality.
