Q & A
*Excludes ALL drop-in class packages & Groupon.
Q: What will happen with my current autopay/monthly membership?
A: All current autopay memberships will remain active through our last day of business on Saturday, August 10. No memberships will be terminated early.
If you’re July/August billing cycle has already passed, your monthly rate will be prorated at the current rate through 8/10, and refunded as necessary.
If your July/August billing cycle has not yet processed as of today 8/22, your next billing cycle will be prorated at your current monthly rate and will remain active through 8/10.
Auto-pay Example #1 - July/August billing date has passed:
Taryn’s monthly rate is $269/month & her billing date was 7/21. Since her July/August billing date HAS already passed and she was already charged for 7/21-8/21 - she will be issued a refund:
The refund breakdown:
$269/ 30 days = $8.96/day
7/21 - 8/10 = 21 days
21 x $8.96 = $188.30
$269 - $188.30 = $80.70
Taryn will be REFUNDED $80.70 no later than 8/15
Auto-pay Example #2 - July/August billing date is coming up/has not yet passed:
Taryn’s monthly rate is $269/month & her billing date is 7/29. Since her July/August billing date HAS NOT yet passed, her upcoming monthly amount will be prorated for 7/29 - 8/10 only. She will not pay for the full month/the full monthly amount.
The upcoming prorated billing breakdown:
$269/ 30 days = $8.96/day
7/29 - 8/10 = 13 days
13 x $8.96 = $116.48
Taryn will be charged $116.48 as scheduled on her regular billing date of 7/29.
FULL PRICED CLASS PACKAGES
5, 10, 20, 30 Drop-in packages
*Excluding autopay memberships, summer sale packages & Groupon.
Q: I recently purchased a FULL priced 10 class pack that is valid through October 2019. What will happen to my remaining/unsized classes?
A: If you have already purchased a full priced package (ie. Not a summer sale package or Groupon) — you have two options:
1. You can get your money’s worth and take advantage of having the kick a** megaformer/spin Classes at your doorstep a few weeks longer and USE all the remaining classes by 8/10.
2. You can use as many classes as possible and we will refund you the prorated amount for any unused classes. The amount refunded will depend on the number of classes remaining and the original amount paid for the package.
IMPORTANT REFUND DEADLINE

*Excludes autopay memberships, full price packages (see above) & Groupon (see below).

A: If you have already purchased one of our Summer Sale Class packages (1, 5, 10 Classes) then you must USE all your classes by 8/10.

What Class Packages do you offer? How do I know which is the best option for my schedule?
First off, we ALWAYS recommend starting with one of our amazing new member specials. The 2 weeks unlimited or the 1 month unlimited package are by far the best bang for your buck and the best way to dive right in! Allowing you complete flexibility to come as many times as you can in the given time period, the more you come the better the deal! (NOTE: These specials are always a better deal than any potential Groupon offer. All Groupon offers are sold directly through us for much more seamless purchase experience!)
Following your new member special, we offer a variety of drop-in class packs (5, 10, 20, etc - perfect for those who come here and there)... as well as auto-pay memberships (ideal for die-hards, those who are committed to getting their burn on 2+ times per week) for cycle or both, MegaBurn + cycle (all access).... Just ask the front desk or send us an email email@example.com and we will guide you to help you find the right fit for you!
What is your studio purchase policy?

If clothing is returned within 30 days unused with the tags on, the item can be exchanged or a studio credit will be offered (no cash or credit refunds).
Auto-pay/Monthly Contracts: Once the membership has completed its minimum monthly commitment, the client's package will auto renew on a month-to-month basis at the existing rate, allowing the client flexibility to continue as long as they wish; however client is not committed to another "x" number of months and can cancel with written/email notice at any time at least 7 Days prior to the next billing cycle (no exceptions).
What is your studio Late Cancel/ No Show policy?
All classes must be cancelled online/via the studio app by the client. Please note: As a boutique studio we have a limited number of machines and Spin Bikes, please do your best to cancel more than 12-hours before class to allow as much time as possible for others to join the class.
Please Note: Our strict Late Cancel/No Show Policy does not change based on the number of people enrolled i the class or people on the waitlist.
Late Cancel (within 12 hours, less than 2 hours): If you cancel at least 12-hours prior to the class start time no fees will apply. If a cancellation is made within the 12 hour window, but more than 2 hours before class, the client account will be charged $15 and the client will lose this class.
No Show (less than 2 hours prior to class/no online cancellation): If the client cancels online at least 2 hours prior to class, or simply does not show up for class, they are considered a "no show" and will be charged $20, plus the loss of the individual class.
Switching classes (same day): Switching sessions or showing up for a different session than you are scheduled for are considered late cancellations.
