FAQ

Q: How many classes can I attend as a member?

A: As a member you are welcome to attend as many classes as your body can handle. Remember that 2 classes in a row can potentially burn up to 600-700 calories!!

Q: Do I have to do classes?

A: No. We have plenty of bags so if there is a class on but you just want to practice yourself, find a space on the floor and go for it.

Q: Do I have to book in for a class or can I just turn up?

A: You don’t have to book in for any of our classes. We don’t limit class sizes. The only class that is limit is our Spin ‘n Box class. For that class you will need to pick up a token from reception in order to secure a bike in the class. It is important that you are on time. All our classes commence with a 3 minute warm up. If you are late and don’t make it into the warm-up round then it is the trainer’s choice as to whether they will allow you to enter the class.

Q: What are the wraps for and do I have to wear them?

A: Wraps are an important part of boxing training. When put on correctly they are designed to protect your hands and wrists from injury. At Burn wraps are compulsory and must be worn in the classes where indicated in our class descriptions. If you are unsure of how to apply wraps, come and see a trainer or one of our reception staff. We will also be producing a video showing how to wrap your hands using both the basic and advanced techniques.

Q: What should I wear?

A: All you need to wear is comfortable gym appropriate clothing and shoes. What we do not deem appropriate are crop-tops, denim, thongs, shoes and/or boots.

Q: If I have not trained in a while, how often should I train?

A: If you are new to fitness training or coming back after a long break, we feel that 3 x 30 minute classes per week is a great starting point. Pushing yourself to do a 1 hour block of classes 5 – 7 times per week may result in you getting injured and/or sick and we don’t want that. We want you to achieve the results you are seeking but it must be done in a controlled manner and we want you to keep coming back. Put in a decent effort in your 3 classes per and you WILL start to see results.

Q: I have never boxed before. Will I be able to participate?

A: At Burn we are not a gym that does a little bit of boxing… We are facility that focuses on boxing and we also have a bit of gym weights. Because of that all our trainers are skilled in the art of boxing and will be able to properly instruct and correct technique where required. If you want a one-on-one session with one of our trainers to bring your skills up-to-speed then speak to our reception staff which can explain how you can book into a Boxing Technique Session.

Q: I have heard that boxing training is pretty intense and I do
not think I am fit enough. What should I do?

A: At Burn we offer beginner classes right through to advanced classes suitable for all fitness levels, ages, gender and skill level. Our classes are specifically designed to progress you from beginner through to advanced in no time. Rest assured that only after a couple of weeks you will be well on your way to improving your fitness… Check out our timetable and grab yourself a copy.

Q: I used to be fit when I was younger but after having my children I have put on some weight and I do not think I would feel comfortable training amongst super fit members? Should I lose some weight before I join so I fit in?

A: Definitely not. That’s what we’re here for. You’ll be surprised, the super fit members only make up a small minority of our membership base where the rest come in all shapes, sizes and ages. The thing about boxing training is that it is you and the bag – you have 3 minutes to per round to work at your highest intensity so you don’t have time to even look at everyone else. The great thing about Burn is that all our members are here with a common goal so you will definitely not feel out of place.

Q: I have always wanted to get back into training after having kids but I have not been able to find a facility where I can bring my kids along? Can I bring my kids along to your classes?

A: Absolutely!! Between 9am-11am Monday to Friday you can come to our facility and train whilst your kids are with you. We also run a specific Parents Class at 9:30am every morning Monday – Friday. We have toys the kids can play with and in most cases the kids play in the ring with the other kids. The Parents Class is a mystery class so the trainers can either make up their own class or they may run any class from our timetable. Come in and give it a go. You will not be disappointed.

Q: Can my mates and I spar in the ring?

A: No. The ring can only be used under the direct supervision of a qualified boxing coach. Also sparring isn’t permitted unless you have signed a waiver and have the correct equipment such as mouth guard, head gear and groin protection.

Q: What do I get for my membership?

A: At Burn we believe that you get what you pay for. For example at regular gyms you pay a smaller entry fee or membership but for that you normally receive no support or guidence in ensuring you are doing exercises right or using the equipment in the correct fashion. Also if the facility has aerobics classes, you would normally have to pay extra for these. More importantly in most cases they don’t provide specific boxing classes – which most people are starting to realise is the quickest way to get physically fit and toned as opposed to walking on a treadmill or lifting weights. At Burn Boxing and Fitness, we offer a world class facility with fully qualified personal trainers that specialise in boxing, offering the highest level of customer service and support. Any time you train at Burn there is always a personal trainer on site ready to assist you in any way possible. Best of all, all we do is boxing focused classes and training drills. On top of that, we have weights and cardio equipment for you to use. Best of all there is no limit on the number of classes you can do every week. We have up to 50+ classes to chose from and our timetable changes every 2 months so there is always something new to re-stimulate your training. And if classes necessarily aren’t your thing then you can just come in and use the equipment if it isn’t occupied by a class. If you have any further questions please feel free to call us on 8339 7979 or come and see us at reception 7 days a week!

Q: I am not sure if I want to join, so do you have casual classes?

A: Yes – but our casual price is for a visit and notĀ per class. So if you pay for a casualĀ visit you can stay for as long as you like and do as many classes as you can in that visit. You could also do a class then jump on the treadmill afterwards or perhaps use some of our weights in the weights area. The one off casual visit price is $20 but we do also offer a 10 visit pass for $150 (up front) so that works out to be $15 per visit.

However if you are looking to train consistantly more than twice a week then a membership is the far more economical option because for the set weekly direct debit fee you can train as often as you like.
