Frequently Asked  Questions

Here to help you get started are some of the most common questions that people ask us before they join our classes.  

If we have missed anything out please do not hesitate to email us via our Contact Us Page or feel free to call one of our team directly.  There are no such things as silly questions and we are happy to help you in any way that we can.   

Why do I have to register?

We have a legal obligation to find out more about the health of everyone that attends our workouts to ensure their safety.  


The one-off registration process allows us to find out a little more about you; our short health questionnaire provides us with the medical information necessary to ensure that your workout is a safe and a happy one.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes of course!  They just need to register first and let us know they are coming via email, text or telephone call.  Please visit our ‘Contact Us’ page for more details on how to contact us.  


However, if you do not have time to complete the form on line, please come along about ten minutes before class to introduce your friend to the instructor and allow them to conduct a health assessment and paper based heath questionnaire.

How long do the classes last?

Each class lasts between 45 minutes and 1 hour. For more information about a specific class, please refer to our timetable.

I’m pregnant (or just had my baby), can I attend your classes?

Some classes may be inappropriate if you are a new mum or currently pregnant.  Danny Wallis and Paul Folan are both ante- and post-natal qualified fitness professionals, so please call our team directly or email us for more help and advice.  

What should I wear?

Comfortable, loose fitting clothes and appropriate footwear please.  No jeans, boots or heels are permitted.


I have an existing medical condition, is it safe for me to exercise?

That depends on your medical condition.  Please contact Danny or Paul if you would like to discuss how BGE can help you with your fitness goals.  Your GP or Clinician is the final authority but BGE will do what we can to help you get fit and healthy if they say it’s safe for you exercise.


How quickly will I see results?

That depends on how hard you work and how healthily you eat!  


With a balanced diet and regular exercise sessions (ideally 3 a week), you should see benefits after 4 – 6 weeks of regular exercise.   

Can I have 1-2-1 personal training?

Yes, our sister company, Adappt, Personal Training Solutions, is an exclusive 1-2-1 personal training studio in the heart of Blackheath and Manor Park.  


Please visit our website www.adappt.info for more information.


What happens if I need to cancel a class?

Please contact us as soon as possible if you cannot make the class that you have booked for.  

How do I book a class?

Firstly, you must register with us on our website registration page. Then either e-mail Blackheath Group Exercise (BGE) or contact the appropriate trainer of the class that you would like to attend by text or phone call before you come to class.  


Payment  is either by cash on the day (‘pay as you go’) to your trainer or you can e-mail BGE to set up a weekly or monthly discount membership prior to attending the class.

How do I know which classes to attend?

Our Class Timetable Page  will offer you detailed information on the nature of each class, for you to get an idea of what suits you.  If in doubt, try them all!

I’m new to exercise…  will I be able to keep up?

All our classes are open to everyone, and you will be presented with options that will make the class appropriate for your fitness level - depending on what you would like to achieve!

What is ‘Pay As You Go’?

With our ‘Pay As You Go’ option, you just turn up on the day and pay for the class you want to do.  


There is no financial commitment on your part, you do not have to join an expensive gym or pay any sort of administration fee.  


We want you to have the freedom and flexibility to do the classes you want, when you want…if you want!

What do I need to bring with me?

A bottle of water and a towel are strongly recommended.  If you have your own exercise mat please feel free to bring it along.  If you have boxing mitts and hook and jab pads, you may bring them for our Ultimate Boxercise and Boxing Circuit classes.

Do you offer any special deals or discounts?

Yes! We understand the importance of offering financial flexibility for people.  We have special deals available to suit all of our client’s needs depending on how they intend to use our service.  


For more information please visit our Timetable & Prices page.

How far in advance can I book a class?  

We take bookings a maximum of 7 days in advance to ensure fairness to both new and existing members.

I am a fit, regular exerciser and like a challenge.  Will I get a good workout?

Our classes are taught in a way that offers options for everybody.  You will have plenty of opportunity to be worked hard if that is what you are looking for.


Will I be pestered with emails once I register?

Absolutely not.  You have the option to receive our monthly newsletter, or not.


Your medical details will be held by us in confidence and not shared with anybody.  We will not pass on your personal information to any 3rd party.
