Group Fitness Policies

Late Policy

If a fitness class is full and you do not arrive before the listed start time, your spot will be given to the next person on the waitlist.

No-Show Policy Effective February 1st, 2023

Fitness classes have a finite number of spots available. To be fair to all participants, if you do not cancel and do not show up to a class, you are considered a "no-show" participant. If you no-show three times in one semester, you will lose your online program registration privileges for a week.
