Training sessions: Each training session can last up to, but not more than 55 minutes. If you are late arriving for your session, Your training will not extend beyond your scheduled time slot. Also, your trainer is obligated to wait only 15 minutes beyond your scheduled ”start time” before you are considered a “no show, ” unless you have called and advised that you will be running late.
Session cancellation policy: If you cancel a training session without adequate notice, or simply fail to show up, you will be charged for that time period. To avoid charges, cancellations must be made by 5:00 PM of the day before any scheduled workout by calling your trainer.
Regarding partnered training: If you signed up for partnered training, your rate is predicated on both clients training together at the same time. If one partner fails to show up the session still counts normally and the no-show client misses the session.

If you are under the regular care of a physician for any injury, you must discuss the exercise program with your doctor and only proceed with his/her approval.
