8. Limitations of liability 

  1. We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us.  If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable.  Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

  2. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so.  This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or for breach of your legal rights in relation to our supply of services with reasonable skill and care.

  3. We are not liable for business losses.  We only supply our Classes and facilities for private use.  We will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

  4. Availability. We cannot be held responsible for any particular Class, instructor and/or item of equipment not being available for any reason. 

  5. We reserve the right to make alterations to the Classes, instructors and/or equipment, as well as ancillary facilities (e.g. showers) provided to Members, without notice in our absolute discretion and we will not be liable for any loss occasioned by such alterations.

 

9. Booking 

  1. Classes can be booked online by all Members in advance via our personalised app or the Website. No bookings will be taking over the phone or via email. 

  2. Class sizes are limited and so all bookings are based on first come first serve basis so please make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment. 

  3. Bookings can only be made online if the Member has an active Membership.

  4. The booking cancellation windows are as follows:

    1. All Group Classes must be cancelled 24 hours before the start of a Class or this will be treated as a ‘no show’ and the full fee will be charged 

    2. Workshops must be cancelled 1 week before the date for the Workshop or this will be treated as a ‘no show’ and the full fee will be charged 

    3. Our preferred method for receipt of Cancellations is online via our mobile app or our Website. Bookings cancelled outside of the cancellation window are ‘no shows’ and will be charged in full.

  5. We may cancel a Class booked by you at any time before the time and date of that Class in the following circumstances:

    1. The required minimum number (if any) for the Class have not booked for that Class;

    2. The required instructor and/or equipment is not available; or

    3. An event described in clause 13 below occurs and continues for more than 14 days.

 

If we cancel a Class in such circumstances we will refund to you the fee you have paid for that Class unless it was paid for as part of a package. 

 

If a cancelled Class was booked as part of a package we will not give you a refund but you will be able to rebook the cancelled Class for another Class.

    1. If a Class is fully booked, you can add yourself to the online ‘waitlist’. Once you are on the ‘waitlist’, as places come up in a Class, you will be automatically moved from the ‘waitlist’ to a reserved space in the Class in turn by reference to your position on the waitlist. At this point normal booking terms apply.

    2. ‘Waitlist’ places are automatically moved into a Class up to 1 hour before the start of a Class but not after that time, so if you are on a ‘waitlist’ you should be prepared to cancel your place on the online ‘waitlist’ anytime up to 1 hour before the start of a Class if you do not want to be added into the Class. 

    3. 24 hours before the start of a Class, once cancellations have been made, some spaces may become available for Members to book online direct and not onto the ‘waitlist’ so it is a good time to check in and see if there are some pre-booked spaces free to reserve. These will be handed out on a first come first serve basis and we cannot guarantee a place.

    4. If a Class is booked online you must sign in at reception via the scanner with the allocated barcode tag or our personalised app at the Centre at least 5 minutes before the Class start time. Failure to do this may be treated as a ‘no show’ and your space may be given to someone else.

    5. In the case of a ‘no show’, payment will still be taken for the Class.

    6. If you have 3 ‘no shows’ or ‘late cancels’ in any two week period, we may suspend your booking rights for one month.  We also reserve the right to remove you from all future Classes you may have booked into.

    7. We will use all reasonable endeavours to start each Class at the scheduled start time but the start may be delayed by the overrun of an earlier Class or by other circumstances. If the delay to the start is at least 20 minutes you may cancel the Class and we will refund your fee or, if the Class was booked as part of a package, allow you to rebook the Class.

    8. Anyone arriving late will not be admitted into a Class.

    9. Details of Class times at the Centre may vary from time to time including cancellations of individual Classes. Class times will be published by us and will be available on the mobile app and Website.
