The Late Cancel and No Show policy applies to ALL in-studio classes. This policy does not apply to Live Virtual classes.
Classes are to be booked to guarantee your spot in class.
You have up until 9 hours before class to cancel your booking. Any cancellations after the 9 hour mark will be considered a Late Cancel. If you do not cancel your class and you do not attend you will be considered a No Show.

Cancellations must be made on the App or website and cannot be made via phone or email.
By booking online you are agreeing to the late cancel and no show policy.
If a class you’d like to take is full, we encourage you to sign up to the waitlist.
You are responsible for all classes you are added to from the waitlist.
Please make sure you are subscribed to class confirmation emails and SMS notifications.
BEFORE 9 HOUR CANCELLATION WINDOW
If a spot opens up at least 9 hours before class time, you will be added to the class and receive an email and / or SMS confirmation. You can text back “Y” to attend, or “N” to decline.
If you do not reply will be added into the class as attending.
AFTER 9 HOUR CANCELLATION WINDOW
The waitlist closes 9 hours before class and you will not automatically be added to the class after that point. If you are added to the class and fail to remove yourself in time, you will be subject to the late cancel no show policy.
During the 9 hours before class you can book directly as spots may have opened up.
Bookings made within the 9 hour cancellation window are still subject to the late cancel and no show policy.
The policy applies to all classes
You are responsible for all classes that you are added to from the waitlist. If you do not reply to the SMS waitlist confirmation, you will be added to the class and the cancellation policy still applies.
Why do we have this policy in place?
Although we would much prefer not to implement this policy, it is absolutely essential especially whilst class size is restricted to maximum 10 people. It has been our experience that when we don’t have the policy, members cancel out late, not allowing sufficient time for other members to book in and therefore many members missing out getting a spot in class.
Why does it have to be 9 hours? Why can’t it be a shorter time frame?
Nine hours allows sufficient time for someone to receive notification they have moved from waitlist to class and plan to attend class. E.g. if it’s a 6am class and someone cancels just before the 9 hour mark, it would be around 9pm (allowing them time to plan the night before). If it’s a 5pm class, they would receive notification around 8 am.
The feedback we have had when it’s less than nine hours is that it just doesn’t give adequate notification. You might receive a text/email in the middle of the night or during your work day and it’s too late to plan ahead.
Why can’t I email or ring to cancel out of Class?
Whilst we check our emails and phone messages daily, there is a chance that we may not receive your email or phone message in time. The App is user friendly and the easiest way to book and cancel classes.
What are the benefits for members having this policy?
The benefits are that you are more than likely to get into the classes you wish to attend.
Members tell us it makes them very accountable! Once they book in they are more likely to attend and less inclined to cancel out last minute.
