Late Arrivals: Clients are expected to arrive on time, ready to train. Late arrivals will finish at the previously scheduled time. Clients have a 5 minute window each side of the start/finish appointment time so that there is time to get changed or record body stats if necessary.
Training Term: The training package term is a definitive, fixed period of time which starts from the date of the first scheduled session, not the purchase date, so a client can purchase a training package or gift certificate in advance. Weeks will run consecutively from the start date and training sessions will NOT be extended into additional weeks and will be forfeited if not used within the paid package period as selected and agreed to by the client. Your training term including start and end dates is shown on your password protected ‘client login’ page.
