About Our Classes

  • Can I still train if I'm injured?

    Depending on the injury or issue this is usually fine. We can alter most exercises to accommodate things like bad backs, knees, ankles, etc. Just make sure to let us know in advance so we can plan for you. And make sure it's ok with your health care professional first!

  • Why do I need to sign up for classes?

    We only have so much space in the studio, and for our outdoor classes this helps us make sure we have enough trainers and equipment available for you at each session.

  • What do I need to bring?

    All you need are your trainers, your gym gear, a water bottle and a sweat towel (optional)!

  • What happens if it’s raining?

    We’re a committed bunch so our outdoor sessions are on rain, hail or shine. We do try to move things under cover where possible, but a trainer will always be waiting at the usual spot. From time to time we’ll cancel a session due to extreme weather, so the best thing to do is join our Facebook Group for updates and keep an eye out for updates.

  • Am I fit enough?

    Please don’t worry about being able to keep up, LOTS of our girls were worried about their fitness or size before they started but we work with all levels of fitness and design our sessions to allow people to go at their own pace. The culture at BUF Girls is very inclusive and not at all competitive, the most important thing is to just start. If you’re particularly worried though, have a word with your trainer before class and they can help to make sure you get some extra love and attention.

  • How can I pause or cancel my membership?

    Memberships are week to week, there are no contracts so you can pause or cancel at any time with a week’s notice – simply contact us to make any changes.

About Our Online Programs

  • Am I fit enough?

    Please don’t worry about being able to keep up, we work with all levels of fitness and design all our programs to allow people to go at their own pace. The culture at BUF Girls is very inclusive and not at all competitive, the most important thing is to just start. If you’re unsure in any way, please contact us to discuss your situation before you begin. We always recommend getting advice from your health professional before beginning any exercise program.

  • Can I still access the program once I've finished?

    You’ll have access for two weeks after the program finishes to go back through everything and you’ll be able to download pdfs along the way. Because we’re always updating course content your access will expire after those two weeks but if you need access again just ask and we’ll be happy to help you out.

  • What are my payment options?

    We accept all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard and Amex. You can choose to pay upfront or week to week, whatever suits you better.

  • What if I don't like it, can I get my money back?

    Yes! We know you’ll love it which is why we offer a 100%, no questions asked, money back guarantee. You can also cancel your program at any time by going to your dashboard and clicking cancel.

  • What if I can't commit to the whole program?

    From your dashboard, you can easily put your program on hold until you have time to come back to it.

  • Do you provide meal plans?

    Yes, but we don't focus on meal plans because the best thing we can do for you is to teach you how to choose the right nutrition for yourself. Knowledge is power, and in fact understanding why you should choose certain foods will make it so much easier to stick to healthy eating, which isn't hard if you know what to look for and that's what we'll teach you. However, we understand some people like the structure of meal plans so we do provide an example meal plan in Totally BUF for this purpose.

  • Who wrote the program content?

    Our program content is designed and developed by our founder Libby Babet, trainer on Channel TEN's 'The Biggest Loser: Transformed" and fitness expert for Women’s Fitness Magazine, plus her team of women’s health and fitness specialists.

    Everything we recommend is based on the very latest research, verified by our network of Australia’s top health experts, and tested personally by the entire BUF team before we put it in a program.

  • What results can I expect?

    We tend to focus on exercising to feel great but if you’re not happy with your body shape then of course the right exercise and nutrition can help create some positive changes. How much change is up to you – we can promise you the world but ultimately, you’ll get out what you put in. You can train all you like but if your diet sucks, then you probably won’t get very far! But, if you take a holistic approach then you can expect to achieve some great results. Most of our customers are blown away by how quickly they lose cm off their arms, waist and thighs if that’s what is important for them. One word of warning though: don’t be obsessed with weight alone! Muscle weighs a lot more than fat, so if you’re already reasonably fit you might be surprised to find that you weigh the same but are a lot slimmer.

    If you’d like more specific information on results, you might like to check out some of our Customer Stories.

  • Is it safe to pay online?

    Absolutely! We use all the latest SSL security to ensure your information is completely safe. We don’t actually store any credit card information ourselves, we use one of the largest payment gateway providers in the world (Stripe.com) to look after all that for us.

  • I'm attend BUF classes already, do I need a separate account?

    Yes, if you train with BUF Girls at any of our locations, this is a separate system from where you’d normally book classes so yes, you’ll need to create a new account by signing up online.

  • Is it just for women?

    The programs are designed for women and we only allow women into our private Facebook group, but we highly recommend getting your partner, friends and relatives involved in your workouts and recipes. It’s a lot more fun doing this as a team!

    If you're looking for something for your man, send them over to the online program of our sister business AGOGA which is coming soon!

  • What if I struggle with motivation?

    One of the bits of feedback we always get is that this is the first program that girls actually stick to! It’s because it’s not a big mountain you have to climb all by yourself, we take you through things in a really easy step by step process. Plus the whole BUF community is there to support you every step of the way through things like our private Facebook group where you can also ask your trainers anything you like at any time.

  • I've tried so many things before, will this actually work for me?

    If you’ve been on the diet bandwagon before, that’s probably where you went wrong in the first place. Dieting doesn’t work… full stop. Sure, restricting your calories for a period of time will cause you to lose weight, but if it’s not sustainable you can cause more harm than good. What we focus on is understanding how to make healthy choices that aren’t a sacrifice, they’re simply choosing a better option.

    We also focus less on chasing the perfect body because we don't want you obsessing about exercise. We work on creating a positive and healthy association with exercise because it makes you feel happy, strong and alive. That positive association is so critical because it changes exercise from something you have to do to something you want to do. We tend to do a lot more of the things we enjoy doing and avoid the things we don't, and that is the secret to being fit and healthy.

  • Is this a fad diet? Am I going to have to starve myself?

    No, definitely not! We don’t believe in going without or counting calories… it’s just not sustainable and can create unhealthy obsessions with food. Instead, we believe in feeding our bodies highly nutritious and healthy food that’s delicious and satisfying. We’ll teach you how to make healthy choices that will last a lifetime.

  • Do I need to buy any equipment?

    No, we’ve designed all workouts to be done at home or in the park with no equipment. If you’re already training at the gym then you might decide to use weights with some of the workouts but it’s not required.

  • Do I need to be in Australia to do your online programs?

    Not at all! We’ve designed our online programs specifically so anyone, anywhere in the world, can participate. And you won’t be alone, you’ll be joining our BUF Girls community and we’ll be doing it together! Note that the program prices are in Australian dollars but you can pay via credit card no matter which country you're in.

  • Where does "BUF Girls" come from?

    BUF stands for Beautiful, Unstoppable and Fearless which is exactly how you’ll feel when you walk away from a BUF workout or event.

    BUF Girls originally started in the Spring of 2010 when our founder, Libby Babet had the realisation that existing fitness offerings for women were pretty intimidating and not really designed to emphasise the female body shape. Libby really wanted to create a community just for girls, that made them feel accepted and connected to each other, and helped reframe their fitness experience so they really wanted to workout, rather than just feeling as if it were something they ‘should’ do. That was when the concept of building a training business based around fun, themed experiences and uncomplicated nutrition ideas that would really change lives for the long run came about.

    Being a BUF Girl isn’t about competition, body image or comparison. It’s not about being the fittest, the skinniest or the hottest. It’s about friendship and community. It’s about healthy bodies AND healthy minds. It’s about inspiring, supporting and celebrating each other as the beautiful women we all are, in our own unique ways. It’s about forgetting about working out to chase a shallow ideal of beauty, and training because of how it makes us feel – happy, healthy, balanced, alert, calm, centred, strong, fearless, powerful, unstoppable… and if we want to change the way the world sees us girls, we need to be the change we want to see.
