JUST A FEW QUESTIONS WE HEAR REGULARLY TO HELP YOU
Frequently asked questions...
Is Paradise For Me?
Yes! Everyone can join our classes regardless of age, injuries and current fitness levels. The programming is modified for each person to help you safely become healthier and fitter. Grandparents and Olympians can perform modified versions of the same general workout. Our coaches are here to guide you through the workout and give the perfect workout tailored to you as an individual.
Do I have to be fit to start?
How many classes should I do a week?
2-4 classes a week is a realistic for beginners, depending on your level of fitness when you start. It may take a while for your body to get used to training at that intensity, so at the beginning you might need more recovery time between training days. Our 2 x classes per week membership is a great place to start!
What kind of results can I expect?
Be patient. Results take time but if you’re consistent, they absolutely will come. The exciting thing as a beginner is that results come fairly quickly, even in 30 days you can really see a difference in your strength and overall fitness. Some common results our members see after regularly hitting our classes are: fitter, leaner, healthier, better mentality, clothes fitting better and more energy! What's not to love!!
I don't want to get bulky!
Our classes do involve a weight training / resistance training element, such as the barbell, dumbbells, kettlebells etc. Strength training is a great way to enhance your shape, feel stronger and fitter as well as an effective way to burn body fat. As a female, it is actually quite challenging to build muscle. At Paradise, we focus on what your body can achieve and celebrating that, often a more toned physique comes with this.
What do I need to bring with me?
Yourself, a good attitude and a water bottle!
Im scared, nervous, worried about starting. Help!
We’ve all been there…it normal! We have all joined a gym for the first time before. Everyone is always open and friendly to new-comers, we pride oursleves on being the friendliest gym around. We promote a family-like atmosphere of support and camaraderie amongst our members. Everyone remembers what it was like at the start and we all want to see each other succeed. Most importantly, we won’t ever have you do something that you are uncomfortable with or that is too advanced for your current fitness level. We have great coaches who are there to help. We've got your back!
I want to get started... what do I do now?
It could not be more simple, drop us an email! Ask us any questions you like or just let us know which membership you want and we will sort the rest. Some people prefer a chat over the phone, just let us know in the email and we can give you a call!
Where do I park?
Park in the car park infront of the main Seale Hayne building. We would recommend giving yourself an extra 15 minutes for the first class to make sure you find our facility and to get yourself familiar with the area.
Who runs Paradise Fitness?

It's more expensive than a regular gym!
I havent trained for a while, will it be hard for me to get started?
Our training is designed to be challenging for all, but every workout is modified to suit any fitness level or injury. What that means is whether you are new or an elite athlete, you can do the same workout, but the workout is adjusted according to each athlete’s fitness level.

I am pregnant or postpartum, can I still join?
Of course! Our coach Amy is a Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism Coach, who is a Mum herself!
