How Gym Crèches Support Parents in Achieving Fitness Goals

Finding the time and resources to balance parenthood and fitness often feels impossible. However, women’s only gyms like Sista Fitness are revolutionising the fitness landscape by offering a solution that benefits both mothers and their families: gym crèches. 

What is a Gym Crèche? 

At Sista Fitness, a gym crèche is a secure and professionally supervised childcare facility located within our fitness center. It provides a safe and engaging environment for children while their mothers or female caregivers workout. Gym crèches are equipped with toys, activities, and caring staff who ensure that children are well taken care of during their stay. 


Benefits of Gym Crèches at Sista Fitness 

1. Convenience 

One of the most significant advantages of having a gym creche at Sista Fitness is convenience. Instead of having to arrange for a babysitter or childcare outside the gym, mothers can simply drop their children off at the creche and focus on their workout.


2. Peace of Mind 

Sista Fitness understands that peace of mind is paramount when it comes to childcare! That’s why our gym creche is staffed by trained and experienced caregivers who prioritise the safety and well-being of each child. Mothers can work out with confidence, knowing that their little ones are in capable hands just a few steps away.


3. Social Interaction 

Gym creches are not just a safe haven for kids; they also provide an opportunity for children to interact with others their age. Through group activities and playtime, kids can develop social skills and make new friends while their parents exercise.


4. Consistency 

Consistency is key to achieving fitness goals. With the availability of a gym crèche, mothers can maintain a regular workout schedule without interruptions. This consistency contributes to better fitness results over time.


5. Supportive Community 

Sista Fitness is more than just a gym; it’s a supportive community of women who understand the challenges of motherhood and the desire for self-care. Our gym crèche fosters a sense of belonging, allowing mothers to connect with others who share their fitness journey. 


Features of the Sista Fitness Gym Creche 

Sista Fitness gym crèche is a welcoming and enjoyable place for children. We have a range of fun and engaging activities, including games, audio-visual entertainment, arts and crafts and books of all levels for individual reading and storytelling. 

All crèche staff are trained, experienced, and so much fun. Your children won’t want to leave! 


Important Information for Your Sista Fitness Crèche Stay 

We want you to have a great workout, but there are some things you need to be aware for when you leave a child in our care. 


Your Responsibilities  

You must stay within the gym facility and be available to attend to your child’s needs if necessary. This might include soothing a crying child (who can’t be soothed by our team), feeding, assisting with bathroom breaks, or changing nappies. 

If your child won’t be attending a scheduled crèche booking for any reason, please cancel the booking through our app or contact the reception as soon as possible. Additionally, parents are responsible for directly supervising their children before and after their scheduled crèche attendance times.


Immunisations & Sickness 

Children attending the Sista Fitness crèche must adhere to the immunisation schedule and guidelines recommended by the Australian Government Department of Health. Parents must provide a copy of their child’s immunisation record upon enrollment and ensure that it is kept up to date as further immunisations become necessary. 

Children who are unwell should not attend the creche. If your child develops any illness symptoms while at the creche, they will be immediately returned to your care. Please note that creche staff are unable to administer medication to your child.


What to Bring 

The crèche is a strictly nut-free zone, and only fruit is allowed in the crèche (cut up in a container). Your child will also need a water bottle, and feel free to send along a favourite toy or comfort item.  

Please have a change of clothes on hand in case your child has an accident, as well as spare nappies. Remember to clearly label all of your child’s belongings with their name!
