I HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION/AM INJURED/PREGNANT/BREASTFEEDING. CAN I STILL JOIN THE BOD SQUAD 12-WEEK CHALLENGE BOOT CAMP?
If you’re pregnant, diabetic, have a medical condition, an injury or a physical disability, please consult your doctor or professional healthcare provider before starting the Bod Squad 12-Week Challenge. Each boot camp training session includes modifications for each exercise, so you can work at the intensity that suits you best.

This means you can train whenever you like, and even double up your training sessions if you so desire. The cost of a Gold Membership is one $660 upfront payment, or $55 per week via direct debit (total cost $660).
CAN I TRAIN AT BOTH LENNOX HEAD AND BALLINA WITH MY GOLD MEMBERSHIP?
Girl, we love that enthusiasm! But no, unfortunately due to council regulations we are restricted to a specific number of Squad members training in each location. As a Gold Member you'll still be able to jump time slots, but you'll need to stick to training within your designated town.
WHAT KIND OF BOOT CAMP TRAINING WILL I BE DOING?
Get set to be motivated! Your training sessions are not only diverse, they also get results. Training consists of circuit classes, HITT sessions, Tabata, beach games, boxing, kickboxing, Pilates, yoga, dance, stretch sessions, agility, and so much more.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
An open mind and good attitude! Seriously, you’re going to be surrounded by kickarse women so you better be ready to make some new friends. Bring water, a mat or towel, and wear active wear, good balanced training shoes, a jumper, cap and sunscreen. On boxing days, you will need to bring boxing wraps. Bod Squad has merchandise available on registration day to ensure you have everything you need.
CAN MEN JOIN BOD SQUAD?
The Bod Squad 12-Week Challenge is largely tailored to the needs and lives of the modern female to help re-invent their shape, burn fat and unlock their body potential. As such, males that would like to engage in the Bod Squad Challenge may not find themselves pushed to their greatest capabilities. However, we do offer semi-private sessions or partner training. Please contact our team for more details.
I’VE PAID FOR THE BOD SQUAD 12-WEEK CHALLENGE – NOW WHAT?
You will be emailed the 12-Week Challenge welcome pack, which has all of the juicy info you need to know. Please ensure you read the welcome letter carefully.
WHAT IF I REALISE THAT THE BOD SQUAD 12-WEEK CHALLENGE IS NOT FOR ME?
I can’t believe you’re even reading this question and answer. Ha! We have never had anyone choose not to continue with the 12-Week Challenge, and because we are very limited in terms of places for each time slot, when you commit you are in for the duration of the Challenge.
CAN I GET A REFUND IF I CANCEL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE 12-WEEK CHALLENGE?
We don’t issue full or partial refunds.
DO I NEED TO SUPPLY OR BRING ANY EQUIPMENT?
No, you just need to bring your beautiful self, and commitment! Bod Squad provides all training equipment required. You will require a pair of boxing wraps for boxing sessions, and a mat. You can purchase Bod Squad merchandise during registration—we offer mats, boxing wraps, caps, training tanks and hoodies.
HOW SAFE IS MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?
WHAT CAN I DO TO PREPARE PHYSICALLY?
The program can be tailored to any level of fitness and needs, but if you’re feeling like you want to get a head start, keep it simple, and safe. Try going for a few beach walks or runs, and slowly increase your duration and intensity as you gain fitness. Gentle daily stretching is also a must!
WILL I BE YELLED AT DURING TRAINING?
Never! We aren’t that kind of boot camp. We’re all about support and encouragement to help you achieve your goals—we’ll be right beside you helping you climb that mountain, not standing at the top yelling at you for not getting there fast enough.
WILL I BE JUDGED FOR BEING UNFIT?
Nope. Any age, any fitness level, we’re all on the same team. There’s no place for judgment in the Bod Squad.
WHAT IS THE BOD SQUAD 12-WEEK CHALLENGE, AND IS IT FOR ME?
The Bod Squad 12-Week Challenge is a commitment to become a fitter, healthier version of you. It’s a brilliant way to get back into fitness, or stay on track with your fitness goals. Bod Squad trains four times a week, three times a day at various outdoor locations around the beautiful seaside townships of Lennox Head or Ballina. The training program features HIIT, resistance, circuit, boxing, cardio, beach games, Pilates, stretch sessions, yoga, agility kickboxing, and much more. Rikki-Lee has created Bod Squad and the training program to ensure you get results, be accountable to your goals, feel supported and love the journey.
CAN I TRAIN TWICE A DAY?
Yep, but only if you are a Gold Member.
HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK SHOULD I TRAIN?
The Squad trains four times a week in your chosen time slot, so it is your choice how many days you commit to training each week. We bet you’ll love it so much you’ll be there for all four!
IS BOD SQUAD SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS?
Bod Squad is suitable for all fitness levels—our training programs are tailored for beginners to advanced. That means that if you haven’t done any exercise for 10 years, you’re going to be okay. We design a program that is suited to wherever you are on your fitness journey. Haven’t worn sneakers for 5 years? We’ve got you (and you might even score a cheeky discount from one of our sneaker partners!)
AM I TOO OLD?
Never! You can transform your body and mind at any age. Remember to only do what you can do: if you can’t do an exercise, Rikki will either help you modify it or you can just march it out until you feel comfortable. If you’re concerned, have a chat with your doctor before committing. The group has women spanning the ages from 21 through to 65, so you’ll likely find someone within the crew to buddy up with who is a similar age or fitness level.
WHAT IF I MISS A DAY?
Don’t freak out if you miss a workout, we all have challenging days occasionally! Just recommit to the next day’s training program. Quick tip: Mondays are an excellent day to ensure that you train—getting out there on a Monday starts your week off right, and means you are more likely to be accountable to your training commitments for the rest of the week.
WHAT PAYMENT OPTIONS ARE THERE AND WHICH PAYMENT SYSTEM DO YOU USE?
You can pay for the 12-Week Challenge right here, choosing to pay in full for a Gold Membership or Standard Membership. Alternatively, you can pay your first week ($40 or $55, depending on your membership choice) by selecting our direct debit option you will then receive an email asking you to fill out your digital direct debit form (for weekly direct debit payments over the ensuing 11 weeks).
I AM HAVING TROUBLE MAKING PAYMENT ONLINE. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Check that your card details have been entered correctly. No luck? It could be your bank being super cautious. Maybe come back later or have a chat to your bank in regards to their security. If you are still having trouble, send our team an email at email@example.com and we’ll help you sort it out.
I WANT TO JOIN THE BOD SQUAD FB GROUP, BUT MY ACCESS IS PENDING.
This group is exclusive to members only. If you are a member and still unable to access the private FB page, please make contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get it sorted out for you.
DO YOU OFFER CASUAL SESSIONS?
Sure do! Outside of the 12-Week Challenge we offer casual sessions—keep an eye on our website and Facebook for the casual session timetable.
