What is BUF Girls?

BUF Balmoral is part of Australia's most popular group training community, just for women. Being a BUF Girl isn't about competition, body image or comparison, it's about friendship and community, healthy bodies and healthy minds, and inspiring, supporting and celebrating each other. In Balmoral, we also offer BUF Mums classes with childminders! (see class descriptions below or check our FAQ for more info)

I have been a part of BUF girls for 5 weeks and it has been the best decision I could of made for myself.I am loving the early morning workouts - it makes me feel super productive and it’s great to be achieving personal goals before starting work. The workouts are always different and made up of short but intense circuits – this is just perfect for me – it’s only until I’ve started these classes I’ve realised I need to be constantly pushing and not knowing what is coming next (probably why I’ve always tailed off of spin and body pump – it’s always the same!). I feel like I’m working really hard and I’m actually really enjoying myself! Although the best part is obviously the great group of girls and Cathy’s amazing playlists which make me laugh every day!The BUF girls slogan “For the love it” is so spot on and exactly the right attitude. I’ve had quite a negative outlook on diet/exercise and have always set very unrealistic goals and timelines. In turn it has caused me a negative relationship with my own body which I am now working to correct. I am doing it “for the love of it”, not to punish myself!Cathy is amazing at motivating people and I really feel the difference in working with a trainer that is giving it a 110% every session. If I’m having a stressful week she seems to know and checks in with me to motivate with food pics or let me have a mid week rant!!Thank you so much Cathy you are doing an amazing job and I am so excited to continue my BUF girls journey 🙂

BUF Girls you are amazing! From Cathy and the trainers to the Girls who train each day... I haven't enjoyed training as much as I love to train at BUF Girls. You inspire, teach, motivate and push us all to our limits, and when we think we have reached them, you push us further!I haven't felt this happy and healthy in a long time and my training at BUF is a big factor in that. I am seeing results and feeling stronger each day.You have created a fun, positive, inviting and enjoyable environment for us Girls to train in - you should be proud of this!Thanking you from me! See you in the AM! xxx

Proud to be a BUF Girl! I've been training for almost 3 months and I'm hooked. Getting out of bed to enjoy the sunrise, workout outside in the fresh air with friendly, positive girls (and sometimes enjoy a dip in the ocean at the end) is the best. Cathy and her team are fantastic; they're always friendly, supportive and put a lot of effort into making each workout fun, different and challenging. I always walk away at the end of a workout feeling more happy, more powerful, more healthy and motivated to tackle the day ahead. I highly recommend BUF Manly to any girl wanting to get in shape and be part of a fun and encouraging community.

Before BUF I struggled to find a form of fitness that I enjoyed and kept up. BUF is not only an awesome way of getting fit but it's also loads of fun - I look forward to my BUF mornings every week! 💪

I recently joined the BUF girls community and wow I'm so happy I did. I really love the varied workout options including strength based workouts, boxing and tabata. Cathy and her team are encouraging, fun and knowledgeable offering tips regarding exercise and nutrition. The BUF online programs are also great and easy to follow. The program offers practical and supportive advice with healthy recipes and snack alternatives to help you as you work towards your goals. GO BUF GIRLS!

I LOVE BUF! I have been exercising with BUF for a few months and I really enjoy the group style exercise. Cathy and the team always made the workouts fun and entertaining whilst working up a sweat. I am a shift worker and I find the timetable very flexible and accommodating. I really enjoy the workouts and always feel great for doing them. I would highly recommend giving BUF Girls a go.

Joining BUF was one of the best decisions I've ever made! Going to the gym isn't for me as I prefer to be outdoors. BUF not only offers a schedule with a variety of workouts, I also get to enjoy doing my exercise outside in great company, and it never gets boring! I love seeing the transformation my body has gone through since joining BUF earlier this year. I feel great and fitter than ever! Thanks to the amazing trainer Cathy & team Xx

BUF totally changed my approach to fitness. Fun training sessions that are always different and leave me full of energy and happy! The BUF girls are super cool & caring ladies, a reflection of Cathy, founder and trainer. She is incredibly supportive and challenges you to be the best version of yourself. #youmusttryit

BUF Manly is A-MAZING. I have been training with Cathy and the girls for about 10 months now and I just love it! It is such a positive, friendly, encouraging and inviting environment. Cathy is such a fab and dedicated trainer, person and friend. Her dedication to each and everyone one of us and our individual health and fitness goals are second to none. 5 stars and much love from me!!

I have never felt so welcome in an excercise group or class in such a short amount of time. Cathy and the BufGirls team offer interesting and varied classes whilst maintaining a fun and motivational atmosphere. Since joining BufGirls I have actually started to enjoy excercise and getting out of bed before 6am to work out doesn't seem so bad any more! Cathy and the team are always smiling, non judgemental (especially if you are very un co-ordinated like me) and motivational.BufGirls don't just offer excercise classes but help with all aspects of healthy living and eating... In a balanced way of course (I've not given up wine just yet!) So thank you Cathy and the team... Even when I curse your chest to floor burpees I still � BufGirls!

The Manly BUF Girls really do make fitness fun! I love that the sessions are outdoors in the sun & fresh air, and that they're not only social but push you to your physical limits. The PT sessions are always carefully planned and prepared for, and even in the group classes the trainers take the time to get to know each girl. I'd recommend BUF Girls to anyone on the Northern Beaches – you'll get accountability in reaching your fitness goals and lots of laughs along the way (and the online support of the community is the cherry on top!)

I have many physical limitations and was VERY wary of taking on a new personal trainer. I was so lucky to have found and worked with Cathy Morton at BUF! She was encouraging and motivating, careful and mindful AND a kick-ass trainer in getting me back to being able to do boxing within 2 months - I didn't think that I would ever box again! THANK YOU CATHY! I will definitely be back when I am back in the country! 🙂

I love BUFgirls! The trainers and the other BUFgirls have been so welcoming and friendly - they made me feel that I was part of the BUFManly community from day one. Cathy, Jana and Marissa are so supportive and encouraging. Their upbeat, happy personalities, not to mention their killer bods (which they work hard for - I know this as they often work out alongside us!!!) is motivation in itself to keep coming along to sessions and giving it my all. I've always tried to maintain an active lifestyle and I really enjoy being outdoors but I'd sort of plateaued with my own fitness endeavours and my interest in motivating myself to get up and move that booty was waining. I love that with BUF there is so much variety - one day I can be doing HIIT the next I'm using weights or body weight and it's about strength rather than cardio. It's great because you don't get bored and your body doesn't either - the constant changing regimes keeps my body guessing and definitely leads to better results. I'm 4 weeks in and I'm definitely stronger than I was when I started. I can do more burpees than I ever thought possible and I can plank for almost 4 minutes (that's my goal - set by the BUF trainers). The intensity of each workout is high but in saying that you're often your own judge - so you can slow it down if you need too or push yourself harder. It means all women of any fitness level can fit in at BUF. There are a few girls with injuries too (myself included at one point) and I've been impressed with how the trainers work around that for those girls - modifying exercises for them or giving them different options, they genuinely care about everyone there. I think one of the main things that sets BUF apart from other fitness groups is the social side of it. We go out for coffees together as a group, events are set up within the BUF community - such as fun runs, or paddle boarding etc which any BUF girl can come along too. It's nice because you have the opportunity to get to know each other better and make friends! I'm 4 weeks in but I'm definitely hooked - BUF girl for life!!!! ❤️❤️❤️

I love BUF Manly workouts! I feel fit, healthy and it's always a great bunch of girls to work out with in the group fitness sessions. It's like I have my own personal trainer but in a small group environment. The sessions are definitely fun and unique - especially the themed group sessions - and Cathy is great at challenging and pushing me when I need it. Such a great workout!

I LOVE training with Cathy & the BUF girls- no session is ever the same, we get to train out in the fresh air & it always sets my day up in the perfect way (beats the gym any day). What I love most is the fact it's fun & I get to meet so many cool, like minded women. Cathy has such a fun way of keeping us fit, holding us accountable & I'm feeling in better shape than ever.

I don't even know where to start. BUF Manly was hands down the best workouts I've ever had. Not only did I get a solid workout every time, I actually looked forward to them every morning. Cathy is an amazing, innovative, and super creative leader to a team that just keeps getting better and better. I'm back in Canada now sadly as I know I'll never find anything as good as BUF Manly. I would recommend Cathy and her awesome team any day of the week for any fitness level- just be ready to have a ton of fun and meet some pretty neat ladies!

It's a great way to start your day and I always leave the classes feeling full of energy and set up for a good day ahead! Cathy and Jana are both incredible trainers and keep the workouts fun, varied and motivate you to get the most out of your training. It also has a great social side to it which makes every class enjoyable and keeps me motivated to train more! xx

BUF is an awesome way to start the day! If you like tough workouts that will also have you laughing throughout with the wonderful BUF girls, then this is for you. BUF isn't just a boot camp but a community of awesome ladies. It's the people as much as the workouts that get me out of bed! Cathy and her trainers gives each of us their personal touch, ensuring we each get the most out of our workouts. I started BUF with an arm injury that had me doing very little. Training at BUF gave me the support I needed to train hard and return from injury safely and as strong as ever. Thanks ladies xx

Your Girl Squad

I really love BUF and am so grateful for everything you do! It’s so fun and I always look forward to it. Never before have I been able to be so consistent with exercise for a long period- I always wear my body out (running) or get bored (running and the gym). I really am looking and feeling my best ...

Where do we train?

BALMORAL BEACH

Balmoral Beach sessions are held on the sand, north side of the island, in front of the Rotunda. In wet weather we move under the trees next to the Bather's Pavilion.

What kind of group fitness do we do?

  • BOXING

    Get your punch on with our fitness boosting boxing classes - one of the funnest ways to get your cardio fix while toning the upper body, defining your abs and boosting cardio fitness. There are different sessions focusing on technique, cardio conditioning and HIIT training - Boxing Tabata sessions are a favourite!

  • STRENGTH & TONING CIRCUITS

    Our circuits are full-body, fat-blasting sessions that blend cardio, plyometrics, free weights and interval training with a serious dose of fun. Each workout is themed, from Hollywood Hot Bods to Beyonce’s Booty Maker, and we shake up the moves and structure every week to keep your body guessing and the results coming.

  • BUF MUMS

    Join a beautiful, supportive community of like-minded Mums in a non-intimidating and seriously effective class to help you get your confidence back after having your baby. So we can make sure we have enough childminders, you need to book in each child you bring to these classes. Childminding is not required if you're not bringing your little one(s)! See our FAQ for more info.

  • HIIT CARDIO

    HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training and is an incredibly effective way to workout. You’ll work hard for short bursts of time, using a series of cardio and plyometric moves that will skyrocket heart rate, then recover your breath before going again. This kind of training fast-tracks fitness gains and blasts fat fast.

    BUF Signature sessions will leave you feeling Beautiful, Unstoppable and totally Fearless. Ass 'n' Abs is dedicated to tightening and toning your arms and bums in a cheeky 30 min.
