All sessions must be booked and paid for in advance.
Please ensure you give a minimum of 4 hours notice to cancel any prebooked session. Failure to cancel by this time will mean all payments for class will be forfeited. If members who pay monthly do not used booked sessions and do not give a minimum 4 hours notice, they will incur a penalty of £10 that must be paid before being permitted to rebook onto any further sessions.
Do not attend any sessions if you feel unwell or show symptoms of fever or have a continuous cough.

Please ensure you arrive dressed and ready for class in clean and appropriate clothing. Please bring a bag containing only items you need for your session, and only take belongings out of your bag when they are needed. If you are bringing your own cloth for pole cleaning please ensure it is clean and wash it when you return home after class.
The sharing of personal belongings is not permitted unless within the same family bubble.
All forms of face coverings may restrict breathing efficiency and government guidelines state they should not be used during exercise except on specific advice from a physician. Therefore they are not permitted to be used during classes unless a GP letter providing advice can be provided.
Upon entering the studio, remove shoes and use the provided hand sanitiser. You may use your own but it must have a minimum of 70% alcohol content. You will then be guided into a designated space to warm up.
Please do not touch the desk area or place any personal belongings on it.
Under 8s must have a parent or guardian with them at all times to assist and spot on the mat. The parent or guardian is also expected to follow all the rules and guidelines.

Students must maintain a minimum 2m distance from other students at all times, unless within the same family bubble.
No photos or videos to be taken during any session, except by the instructor.
No rigging changes will take place during sessions.
During aerial classes, fresh apparatus will be available for each session: this will consist of one sling, two sets of silks, two trapezes, three 95cm hoops and four poles. Students may use their own apparatus or our speciality equipment but must arrange this with the instructor in advance. Session times and available apparatus will be listed on our facebook group for students to book their spaces.
If you wish to use your own apparatus it must be left at the academy and rigged and taken down by us between sessions, and must be at the academy a minimum of 3 days prior to its first use. Collection of equipment must be arranged and will not take place straight after class.
All students may only book one session at a time but may give preferred days and times of other sessions they would like to attend if space allows.
No new or high risk moves will be taught but spotting may occur for recovery purposes only if an instructor perceives the risk of injury greater than the risk of Covid-19 spread. This may change over time and if we consider it safe to spot students, instructors will wear masks to do so and sanitise their hands before and after each spot.
Water bottles or other refreshment containers, should in no circumstances be shared. Participants are advised to bring their own, in a labelled or highly distinguishable container.
All students must exit the apparatus as soon as they are told to do so and cool down in the same space used to warm up.
You will be directed individually on how to exit the studio correctly and safely.
Parents must be ready to collect their child at the scheduled end of class, but must remain outside and maintain social distancing.
If anything is left or forgotten, please DO NOT re-enter the academy to retrieve it. Contact us and we will organise for you to collect your belongings.
Please make sure you leave the studio car park as quickly and safely as possible to avoid congestion.
In line with the NHS Test and Trace strategy, we may be required to submit contact details of our students if anyone within their class tests positive for COVID-19.
While Freestyle Fitness will attempt to minimise any risk of a Covid-19 spread within the studio, the risk can not be eliminated completely. By signing this document below you are confirming you are aware of these risks and accept responsibility for your own health and safety. You are also confirming permission for your details to be shared for the purpose of the NHS Test and Trace strategy.
GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS - Please note that all COVID-19 mitigations currently over rule any conflicting general terms and conditions.
No shoes. All shoes must be removed at the door. This includes all parents spectating.
All students must have filled out a Par-q form and informed consent form before taking part in any class/event or workshop. It is the students responsibility to inform Freestyle Fitness of any changes to their medical condition when they attend each class.
Class times must be adhered to. There are other things going on before and after your class and if there isn't a class after yours, we would like to go home.
Warm ups and cool downs will be structured. Therefore when told to come off equipment, you need to do it quickly so cool down can be done in time for the class to finish on time and for people to leave ready for the next class. It also goes hand in hand with sticking to class times.
Any equipment got out, needs to be put away tidily.
If you have specific equipment you need to work on, you must book it prior to class. Equipment booking will be based on maximum of 3 persons sharing one apparatus at any one time. However we will try to limit it to a max of two. And you can't prebook equipment prior to 48hours in advance of class.
If you book use of specific equipment then do not turn up without giving notice. You will forfeit your right to prebook equipment. Same applies if you prebook equipment then barely use it.
No food or drink on matted area.
No bags, phones or other personal belongings on the matted area.
No jewellery to be worn during any class. All body piercing must be taped or covered.
No lotions on hands or body.
No buckles, studs or zips on clothing that could catch on the equipment.
Use of grip aid must be approved by your instructor before use. Studio grip aid will only be supplied when absolutely essential except rosin which we are happy for you to use as and when required. If you know you require grip aid to work efficiently then please bring your own.
Chalk is no longer permitted. It's to messy and the benefits do not warrant the effort to tidy it up. Use rosin instead.
No photos or videos to be taken during classes without consent from your instructor.
No spectators during any sessions except youth circus.
Any and all injuries suffered during class, including minor injuries, must be reported to the instructor at the time of occurrence.
Students are NOT permitted to instruct each other. If you have any questions please ask your instructor.
In the event of snow or bad weather Freestyle Fitnesss will announce any class cancellation on their Facebook and Instagram pages. If you are concerned a class may be cancelled due to bad weather and can't see a notification, please contact us. If the class runs and you can’t make it, your lesson will be forfeited.
MEMBERSHIPS, PAYMENTS & CANCELLATION
Membership fees are due the same day each month. If you are not attending a class on the day your fees are due please ensure you pay during the last session you attend before your fees are due or by bank transfer.
We require a minimum 4 weeks notice to cancel membership.
If payment of fees is late you will not be permitted to train at the academy until fees have been paid and furure membership fees will still remain due on the original date each month.
Membership fees are based on a 48 week year. But to make it easier we accept payment each calender month. However this means full fees are still due even when the studio is closed for instructors holidays. I.e during December when we may be closed for Christmas.
If membership is cancelled for any reason you will not be permitted to return as a member for a 6 month period but will be welcome to train on a pay per class basis.
All pay per class payments must be made at the time of booking.
All private classes must be paid for in full at time of booking.
If you need to miss a drop in, private or pay as you go class please give us at least 24 hours notice. You will be charged in full for less than 24hrs notice of non attendance of any class.
Courses are not refundable or transferable under any circumstances.
Payments can be made in cash at the academy, via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or via bank transfer/standing order to sort code: 110492 and account number: 00561538
For pole dance - shorts and vest top. Please ensure you are wearing a sports bra and that it supports whilst upside down (boobs are ace but can cause embarrassment when randomly popping out). shorts/hotpants should be tight fitting round thighs with a minimum 2 inch wide gusset to prevent me or other instructors seeing more than your gynecologist. :)
Plus bring leggings or joggers and a hoodie for warm up/cool down
For Aerial - leggings and t shirt that doesn't ride up at the back. Ideally have under arms covered to prevent burns and for hygiene purposes. No belts, buckles or zips. Leotard and leggings/dance tights are also an option. Leg warmers may assist with reducing ankle burns and trapeze boots are permitted on trapeze and hoops but not on fabric apparatus.
Please bring a hoodie and socks for warm up and cool down.
