class reservation policy
We try to have a reservation policy as flexible as possible with the goal that as many people as possible can get in the classes they want. Here are our two important policies:
1. Only reserve in ONE class when there are back-to-back classes of the same type. This applies to back-to-back Kettlebell or Spinning classes - please reserve in one only. You are welcome to do back-to-back classes, but one should be a "drop-in" (hint: reserve for the busier one and drop into the other). This does not apply to Kettlebell followed by Ironcore or Spinning followed by Yoga - in those cases you can reserve for both. Please note that if we notice someone is booked for back-to-back classes of the same type we will remove the second reservation from the class list.
2. If you need to cancel a reservation we require sufficient time to call someone else on the wait list. If you are cancelling an evening class we need to know by 1 pm the same day. If you are cancelling a morning class we need to know by 5 pm the day before. Please note that cancelling 1 hour before a class starts does not help us - we need more time to work the wait list.
Please note that an "unlimited classes" package doesn't mean unlimited reservations, and these policies do not prevent anyone from attending as many classes as they can. We reserve the right to limit one's reservation privileges if we feel they are abusing the privilege by constantly late cancelling or no-showing for classes. We have these policies so that everyone can enjoy the classes they want and we aren't left with empty spots in our most popular classes.
