A maximum of 4 members train with 1 coach, which again creates an awesome supportive environment, keeps the quality of coaching high and the price much lower than one to one coaching. You can book a consultation via our timetable above.
You can remove yourself from any fitness class up to 12 hours before the start time. Within 12 hours, you can still remove yourself from the class but this will count as a late cancellation and you will lose the session.
