Are you a female-only studio?
The Self Care Sisterhood was started as a female-only fitness studio as an alternative to intimidating, male-dominated gyms. Although we are still the 'Sisterhood', we want to emphasise that we are for anyone who identifies as she/her or they/them. A bunch of our members are part of the LGBTQIA+ community (including our founder and head PT, Chloe!) and we are a safe space for transgender and non-binary people.
We're registered with ACON's ' Welcome Here Project' as well as TransFriendly
We are for anyone who identifies as she/her or they/them
How are you mental health/chronic illness friendly?
We have smaller classes than the average studio on purpose to ensure “overwhelm” is lower & you get the personal support you need. We also keep our music at a manageable level (no deafening sessions here!) Chloe is aware some of our members find this triggering (she is a chronic migraine sufferer so she gets it!) and wants to create the most accessible space for you!
We’re all about providing options: if you are ever feeling overwhelmed during class, we can give you options to make things easier, or you are more than welcome to take a seat and rest/read a magazine until you’re ready to join us. We’ll never push you past your limit, and our girl gang will encourage and support you through the class. We believe that showing up is the biggest victory, and everything else is an added bonus!
Am I fit/young enough to come?
Babe- you are perfect just as you are! We provide boutique sized small group personal training to ensure all bodies are loved & looked after! We also provide options for ALL movements; including straps, blocks & chairs for support.
Our members range in age from teens through to 60s, and we don't believe anyone is 'too' anything to move for their mind!
Please keep in mind that all of our classes will require you to get up off the ground unassisted. If you have a disability, you are welcome to bring along your carer to our classes, to ensure you can enjoy and participate fully!
If you are particularly nervous - book yourself in for a 1-on-1 session with one of our PTs & we can help you strengthen your movement skills so you feel confident to slip into class.
What if I have an injury?
That should be fine! Just give us some info on it (i.e. where? And how old is the injury?)
Depending on your needs & the injury, we can help you find alternatives/options in class. However if you are currently injured, you will need a physio or doctor’s letter of clearance to start class. We want to keep our clients moving safely, this ensures you do!
Alternatively, we have multiple clients who have had past injuries do a few 1-on-1 sessions with a trainer before starting group classes. This is great for building your confidence and strengthening areas that need support so you can transition well into group classes. Enquire below and we'll be in touch!
What is your class session and personal training cancellation policy?
Our SCS studio is intimate and we keep our classes small (maximum 16 ppl) so we get a chance to focus on you individually in a fun social environment. Booking are essential and classes do book out, so we require you to cancel your booking at a minimum of 3 hours before your class. Booking is easy and can be done through our app.
If you are on a class pass & fail to cancel before your class this will be deducted from your total as if you had attended. Please be aware that by not cancelling out of your class session this may stop another member from signing in!
We require Personal Training clients to cancel a session at least 24 hours in advance via email, otherwise the session fee will be forfeited.
Where do I park?
There is plenty of one-hour street parking outside the studio, as well as a two-hour free public car park a one-minute walk away.
Can I pause my membership? How long for?
Yes indeed! If you know when you will be away please give us (2) two weeks written notice so we can arrange this for you in time. Please email [email protected] with the dates you will be away. Also please note that there is a maximum of 4 weeks pause per year & a minimum of (2) weeks must be taken each time.
