FAQ

HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR CLASSES?

Head to our website and click on the ‘Studio’ link to get to our online schedule! From there it is easy to create an account and book into classes. Feel free to call your studio, or email us to book a class or private training session.

DO I NEED DANCE EXPERIENCE TO TAKE DANCE CARDIO?

Not at all! You can have two left feet and still enjoy a Dance Cardio class at BBS! We repeat the choreography over and over throughout the class so you have a chance to learn the short routines before moving on. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing the steps perfectly – just keep moving and have fun!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

We suggest wearing comfortable, supportive work-out attire. Many of our clients prefer to wear shorts, capris or leggings as you will be getting very hot and sweaty! All of our classes include Dance Cardio intervals, so please be aware that you will be doing a lot of jumping when choosing your tank top or sports bra! Most importantly be sure you have supportive sneakers for all of our classes at Body By Simone.

WHAT KIND OF FOOTWEAR DO YOU RECOMMEND?

All of our classes require supportive sneakers. Any brand of shoe is fine, however at BBS we love Newton Running Shoes! Newton’s lightweight design allow you to sense the ground better so that you’re naturally able to work more efficiently and with more stability. Newtons are available to try out during your classes – just ask the front desk for more info!

DO YOU SELL WATER?

Yes, we currently sell bottled water at our studio. We also provide filtered water for your convenience should you bring a bottle.

DO YOU HAVE SHOWERS AND LOCKER ROOMS?

Yes, we have showers at BBS, supplied with shampoo, conditioner and body wash. We also provide towels and hairdryers for your convenience. Please contact the individual studios for more information.

CAN I TAKE BACK TO BACK CLASSES?

Yes, our classes at BBS are designed to complement one another. We recommend taking a toning class before or after a cardio class for optimal results.

HOW LONG ARE THE CLASSES?

All of our classes are 55 minutes.

CAN I TRAIN AT BODY BY SIMONE WHILE INJURED?

Yes, we are happy to help you work through injuries and maintain your fitness level while you are recovering. We require doctor’s approval before continuing a workout while injured and also advise personal training sessions (depending on the injury) so that you receive one on one attention. Our trainers will work to devise a plan that best suits you on your road to recovery.

CAN I TRAIN AT BODY BY SIMONE WHILE PREGNANT?

Yes, we work with woman during and post pregnancy. Regardless of your fitness level, we always encourage speaking with your doctor when starting a new fitness regimen and providing us with a letter stating your doctor’s approval. Pregnant clients are also encouraged to wear a heart rate monitor during private sessions and classes.  Always be sure to notify the trainer that you are pregnant at the beginning of class.

HOW MANY CLASSES PER WEEK DO YOU RECOMMEND?

At BBS, we recommend all clients attend class 5 days per week and also encourage a weekly day of rest. The amount of classes you take really depends on your fitness level and goals. While we do encourage pairing a toning class with a cardio class to achieve optimal results, feel free to speak to any of our trainers for input on the best regimen for your individual needs.

I’M MOVING OR TRAVELING, CAN I WORK OUT AT ANOTHER STUDIO?

We would love that! Please note, pricing and packages differ at the studios, so you would need to contact the studio you are visiting and purchase a separate package for that location. This is also a great time to take advantage of our In-Home products!

HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO WORKOUT AT BODY BY SIMONE?

We require clients to be 16 years of age to take Group Fitness classes at all BBS studios. If you are under the age of 18, please reach out to us about booking a Private Group Class or Personal Training session.

CAN MEN WORK OUT AT BBS?

Yes! We love our male clients. We usually recommend starting with the Full Body class for your first time.

DO YOU SELL GIFT CERTIFICATES?

Yes. Gift certificates are also called “gift cards”. They never expire and the recipient can use the gift card(s) to buy classes or any kind of merchandise. Once a class is purchased using a gift card, it will expire just like any other class purchased. If you would like to buy a gift card, please visit the BBS Shop or your local studio. Gift Cards are only redeemable in the city in which they were purchased.

ARE GIFT CARDS THE SAME AS CLASS PACKS?

Gift cards and class packs are completely different. You may purchase classes as well as gift cards. Unlike gift cards or gift certificates, class purchases and packs are for Group Fitness Classes only. Classes and class packs cannot be given to another person as a gift, and the classes DO expire. The expiration dates are posted in the descriptions of the class or series of classes when purchasing, as well as on the receipt, and on all Terms and Conditions. Please contact your home studio with any emergency situations.

CAN CLASSES BE REFUNDED OR USED FOR MERCHANDISE PURCHASES?

Individual Group Fitness Classes and class packs are non refundable. You may not sell or transfer your class purchase to someone else. You may not redeem your purchase for cash, or in-studio credit. Class purchases are for Group Fitness Classes only and not redeemable for merchandise.
