Frequently Asked Questions

When can I start FitRight exercise classes?

 

FitRight’s pregnancy fitness classes can be commenced at any time as long as you have the all clear from the health professional (GP, obstetrician, midwife) looking after you. We recommend you attend these classes during your second and third trimesters and you are welcome to attend right up until your due date!


FitRight’s mums and bubs post natal exercise classes can be commenced after your baby has had his or her 8 week immunisations, as long as you have been given the all clear from the health professional (GP, obstetrician, midwife) looking after you. Please note you will also be required to attend a FitRight initial assessment before we can confirm your booking. 

 

Do I need a referral to attend FitRight exercise classes? 

 

You do not need a referral as such, however you will need to get the all clear from the from the health professional (GP, obstetrician, midwife) looking after you. 


What does a FitRight initial assessment entail? 

 

For information about FitRight's initial assessments please visit our FitRight Initial Assessments page. 

 

Are FitRight classes covered by my health insurance?


If you have private health insurance, it is highly likely that you will receive a rebate for FitRight classes as all our classes are delivered by qualified physiotherapists. The amount that you get back will depend on your level of cover, and how much you have already used, so you should check your individual circumstances with your health insurance provider. 


For pregnancy fitness classes please quote code 595 for ‘antenatal exercise’ or for mums and bubs post natal exercise classes quote code 596 for ‘postnatal exercise’. 

 

What do I need to bring to a class?

  • Water bottle – it’s important to keep hydrated!
  • Classes involving baby massage require you to bring a towel and some baby massage oil.
  • If you are bringing your baby to a post natal class (and we are happy for you to do so!) please bring them in a pram to make it easy for the volunteers to care for them.

What do I need to wear to a class?

 

• Comfortable clothing – leggings and a t-shirt are ideal.

• Socks.

 

Where will my baby be while I exercise?

 

The babies will be looked after by the volunteers in very close proximity to where you are exercising. You will be able to hear, if not see, whether the volunteers need assistance with your little one. 

 

Who are the volunteers?

 

The volunteers are lovely members of the community who have offered their time to make it easier for you to return to exercise after having a baby. All volunteers require a Working With Children Check before commencing volunteer work with FitRight. 

 

What if I cannot attend a class due to illness, holiday etc?

 

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the booking system, you will still have to pay for all of the classes in the block that you have booked for. If you have your baby midway through a block of pregnancy exercise classes, contact us to put that credit towards some post natal classes.
