What People Say

  • Testimonial-Terri

    For years I struggled to find a type of exercise that I enjoyed. Running? Not for my body! Gyms? Too boring. After having my daughter, I was unfit with niggling lower back/neck pain & a meniscus tear injury. Through barre classes alone, I have regained my fitness, increased my flexibility & core strength. I adore the ballet component of S3 Barre classes & the choreographed exercises are motivating, challenging & addictive. I feel fitter than I have in years!

    - Terri O'Donnell

  • Testimonial-Bronwyn

    I have the utmost admiration for the professional way Josh runs and has developed his business, the clinical skills and experience he brings to it and the personalised service and advice which he and his team provide to everyone who participates. Josh's empathy with and passion for improving and maintaining the health of his clientele is inspiring. His clinical pilates and barre classes have become an integral part of my life.

    - Bronwyn Hewitt

  • Testimonial-Renee

    I approached Josh at PCP Yarraville and S3 Studio as he came highly recommended by a lot of other health professionals in the local area. The birth of my first child left me with pelvic floor complications that required rehabilitation and baby number two added to the whole problem and more! Josh's knowledge, patience and ongoing supportive treatment got my health back to a level where I felt comfortable. I am now almost the fittest I have been since becoming a mum and I owe it a lot to Josh and S3 Barre and Pilates! I have and will always recommend Josh and his team at S3 Studio.

    - Renee Vandernet

  • Testimonial-Peter

    After a lower-back injury slowed me down, I wanted a strenuous workout that was safe. Clinical barre, run by Josh, who is a physiotherapist, came to the rescue. It's helped restore a confidence in my body that I haven't felt for years. It's hard going: I've discovered leg muscles I didn't know existed. Still, I leave each session feeling revitalised and appreciate the attention to posture and balance. I'm moving better and feel stronger than I have for years!

    - Peter Dewar

  • Testimonial-Carley

    S3 Barre is the most amazing workout ever! It has completely toned up and improved my body shape like nothing else I have ever tried. The ever changing classes ensure that I never get bored and provide me with total body strength and toning. The classes are so much fun whilst being really challenging at the same time. I have been attending for nearly 18 months now and am completely addicted. I travel a lot for work and always seek out a barre class wherever I am around the world. Attending other classes just reinforces how lucky I am to have such a warm, professional, passionate and encouraging team at S3!

    - Carley Dowdle

We have a maximum number of 16 people per class, to ensure that the instructor can monitor each attendees though out the class to achieve maximum results!
How often do I need to attend classes?
Depending on your goals and exercise habits and your other activities, we recommend at least 1 to 2 sessions per week. Even with 1 session a week you would feel the benefit of S3 workouts. In the ideal world, 3 sessions a week would be optimal. We have a range of different workout to give you the variety to enable you to train regularly without getting bored or ovreruse one muscle group. We are also more than happy to sit with you to discuss the best ansd most sustainable options for you.
What's your cancellation policy?
We have a strict cancellation policy. If you cancel a group class 8 hours prior to your class start time, you will be fully refunded. Failure to attend without motice will result in a full fee charge to your account.
What if I'm running late?
If you're running more than 5 minutes late, it might be better to join a later class. It might be unsafe to join the class after warm up finishes.
The class I'm interested in is full, what can I do?
You can either call us to put yourself on the waitlist, or check the schedule regularly and something might come up as the day progresses. It is not uncommon to have last minute cancellation.
What if my class is cancelled?
In the rare event that a class needs to be cancelled, you will be notified as soon as we are aware. A class needs a minimum of 2 people to proceed. In the event that less than 2 people are booked, the class will be cancelled 2 hours prior to start time.

Do I have to do a 1 on 1 class before commencing a group session?
If you've never done pilates before, it might be beneficial that you do a 1 on 1 for your very first session. If you've had issues in the past or have some ongoing injuries or simply are currently pregnant, the 1 on 1 session is highly recommended. You might get more out of your group sessions following a 1 on 1 because you now have a better understanding of what's going on. That being said, most of our clients do just fine in a group session. You can always try a group class and if you feel you need a 1 on 1, then we can schedule something for you.
Where do I begin?
It doesn't matter what your fitness level is, it is always best to start with a standard session. The instructor would be aware of your history and modify the exercises as the class progresses to make sure you are challenged throughout the class. At the end of the class, feel free to discuss with the instructor about how you feel regarding the level of the class.
Any tips for first timers?
Come in about 10 mins earlier so you have time to relax and get to tour the studio and meet your trainer prior. If you're more than 5 minutes late, you might not be allowed into the class for safety reasons. (See the next point regarding what to wear.)
What do I wear to class?
Something comfortable to exercise in. We recommend tights, leggings or shorts and either a T-shirt or singlet top. Non grip socks are recommended but bare feet are also fine.
What facilities do you have?
We provide complimentary drinking water. We also have a comfortable changing room and waiting area. If you forget socks or your gear, we carry a small stock of socks and workout gear.
