How much are the fitness classes?

If you are not a member, you can find the price of each class listed on the booking page or Better UK app once you have selected your preferred leisure venue and the type of class you want.
Can I attend a class without booking online and pay at the centre?
Customers are encouraged to book online to guarantee their activity date and time as it’s not guaranteed a space will be available for anyone that hasn’t pre-booked.
What happens if I fail to cancel or attend my fitness class?
For members, a £3 no show charge will be automatically applied to your account if you do not show up to a class that you booked on to. A charge will also be applied if you fail to cancel your class within the four hour period prior to the class starting.
This will also be applied if you do not scan your membership card on arrival, as the system will have no way of knowing you attended. The charge can be paid online or at the leisure centre at your convenience. You will not be able to make any more bookings until it is paid.
If non-members cancel prior to the four hour booking period their account will be credited with the monies paid, that they can use when booking future activities
How do I know what level class to book?
We offer a range of fitness classes and our passionate instructors will offer modifications, so you can still take part if you’re a beginner at a pace that feels right to you. We also offer a variety of Basics classes that teach lower intensity movements. These are suitable for older adults, those new to exercise, or trying a class for the first time.
If you’re not sure what level of class you should book, you can find out by clicking through to the individual classes and checking the description.
If you’re still unsure, feel free to speak to a member of staff at your local venue. They will be more than happy to advise you.
What if there are no classes available to book at my preferred venue?
Our fitness classes vary from centre to centre, please make sure to check your local centre timetable for class offerings and availability. If there are no fitness classes at your preferred leisure centre, then you can either join a waiting list (if you’re a member only) or see if there are available classes at a different centre . Additional fees may apply depending on your membership type.
If I’m on a class waiting list, when will I be able to join the class?
Booking onto a timeslot from a waiting list is on a first come, first served basis and does not guarantee availability. Members only can join waiting lists, and if a class timeslot becomes available, you will be notified via your email.
Do I need to show proof of booking to attend my fitness class?
All members and non-members are required to scan their membership card upon arrival at the centre, which can be found on the Better UK app. This will ensure your bookings changes from Booked to Attended on your account.
If you fail to scan in, you will be marked as unattended and will incur a £4 charged.
If you are doing back to back classes in one session, you have a four hour window prior to the class starting to scan in.
Do classes run on the same day and time every week?
Classes do run on a set programmed timetable but these may change from time to time to accommodate new classes or time adjustments. We recommend always checking the fitness class timetable on your centre page or the Better UK app for your desired class each week. Find your nearest centre here.
