  2. Participants must cancel any registration for a group fitness class they can no longer attend. Cancellation must occur at least 15 minutes prior to the advertised start time of the class. This is to allow stand by and waitlisted participants to join the class.

For your safety and the enjoyment of all participants, anyone arriving late (after the advertised start time) to a group fitness class will not be permitted to enter the studio. Arriving late to a class will result in a no show.
  5. Group fitness participants must check in with the instructor or fitness staff prior to entering the studio for a group fitness class. Participants that do not arrive at least 5 minutes early will be marked as a no show and standby participants will be allowed in class.
