Group Exercise Class Notice

Dear Customers,

This notice is to inform you, that following a review of our group exercise bookings service and after receiving customer feedback, we are implementing new procedures to improve the service for everyone.

During our review of group exercise we found frequently a high number of customers booking classes and failing to attend, which meant other customers were being stopped from both booking the space and taking part in classes.

Therefore, from Monday 1st January 2018, we will be introducing a new cancellation & attendance procedure, which is as follows:

  1. Customers who find they cannot attend a class MUST cancel their booking up to 2 hours before the start time of the class, failure to cancel a class booking will result in a nominal fee of £1.00 being charged.
  2. This charge will remain on the customer’s account until it is paid off either at centre reception or online bookings www.1life.co.uk/Connect, where you’ll need your email & PIN number to login & use this service.
  3. Members have essentially pre-paid for their classes and if they fail to cancel their booking up to 2 hours before the start time of the class will still be charged the nominal fee. Failure to clear this charge will result in future bookings being charged at non-members rates.
  4. Members must ensure they are logged as attended for the class, either by swiping their card at the gate (please wait for an audible beep and gate opening) or at reception (please retain your receipt), Failure to do so will result in the nominal £1 charge being applied as we can only assume you have failed to cancel.

Customers & members can cancel class bookings in 3 different ways:

  • Use the new 1LIFE APP where you can both BOOK and CANCEL classes. To download this FREE service use your mobile or tablet device, visit www.1life.co.uk/1life-app/, click on the logos to download the APP for either iOS or Android device. You must ensure that your email address is first registered with the Centre, to be able to login.
  • Use your web account at online bookings www.1life.co.uk/Connect. You’ll will need your email & PIN number to login.
  • Telephone the centre’s reception on 01296 484848

With this improvement we are making to the group exercise service, we anticipate that all customers will view these as positive steps & we thank you in advance for your co-operation. Should you have any other comments or feedback relating to your usage or membership at the centre, please do not hesitate to ask to speak to me or a member of the team.

Yours Sincerely

Gavin Ebeling
Health & Fitness Manager
