All guests agree to abide by these Club Rules, and failure to do so may result in the guest being ejected from the Club. 

9. CLASS BOOKINGS

Bodywise Boutique Wellness timetables, instructors and classes are subject to change at any time. Bodywise Boutique Wellness will endeavour to provide notice when a class is unable to take place for any reason.

Members are recommended to book in advance to ensure that a class has space for them. Members can book 14 days in advance of the class. A Member cannot book onto classes that overlap each other. Bodywise Boutique Wellness operate with a "three strikes" non-cancellation/non-attendance rule, whereby three no shows in any 30 day rolling period will result in a one-week advance booking restriction. A Member must cancel a class booking at least two hours in advance of the class to avoid receiving a strike. If the class begins at full capacity, then Bodywise Boutique Wellness will waive this strike. 

If a class is full, a Member can book onto a waiting list. When a space becomes available Members will be notified via email. Once on a waiting list Members are committing to attend and can book into a class themselves or could be booked into the class up to 1 hour before the class start time by the member of staff. If Members can no longer attend, they must remove themselves from the waiting list as a strike will be applied in line with Bodywise Boutique Wellness’s class cancellation policy. If the class begins at full capacity then Bodywise Boutique Wellness will waive this strike.

Participants booked into class should arrive and be ready at least 5 minutes before class start time. If a participant arrives late, the booking is automatically removed from the class and opened up for other members at the class start time. If the Member arrives late and there is a space still available, to avoid a booking ban the Member must book back into the class otherwise a strike will be applied. 

10. MEMBERS APP & CARD

A free downloadable app is available for both Apple and Android devices. This acts as an entry key upon arrival to the Club. If required a membership card can be issued to each Member upon joining the Club. Members must present their card for security and verification on each visit to the Club; Members without a valid membership card may be asked for photo identification, and will be admitted at the absolute discretion of Bodywise Boutique Wellness staff.

A Member may not loan their membership card or permit its use by any other person; allowing such misuse of a membership card may result in membership being terminated with no refund of fees already paid.
