T & C's
Please arrive a few minutes prior to your class starting to complete a weaver and to ensure you warm up properly. Classes run from the specified time, to the specified finish time, classes are carefully structured to ensure time for warm-up and cool down.
If you are late for a class, to reduce disruption to the other students already present, you may be asked to leave.
Important instructions relating to the class safety may have been presented at the beginning of the class, and similarly you may have missed the important warm-up.
If denied entry, you will forfeit any payment made for that class as your instructors do not have time to repeat instructions missed by your absence.
Warm up and cool downs are always provided at each session and must be carried out to ensure good practice, it is the students own choice to take part in warm up/ cool downs and not the responsibility of Pole Intentions this reduces any risk of injury. A student not following correct procedures for our classes/ sessions may be revoked.
Students must always wear appropriate exercise attire, A shirt/vest, shorts/leggings and bare foot is required. The clothing must be for exercise purposes; therefore, casual clothing is not allowed. No jeans or any article of clothing with zippers or rivets. Please do not apply lotions, moisturisers or creams on the day of the class. Not only will it make you slippery, increasing the risk of injury but it also leaves the poles slippery for others, increasing their risk of injury too. Failure to dress properly will result in denial to workout (Pole Intentions can revoke this rule if needed to do a themed sessions)
Pole Intentions reserves the right to alter the timetable or teacher due to circumstances beyond our control.
You must inform Pole Intentions of any changes to your medical condition at each class. It is your discretion to participate in the fitness class knowing it contains different levels of physical exercise. Pole Intentions does not take the responsibility to supply crash mats to the poles provided, members may use the poles without crash mats at their own risk and pole Intentions take no responsibility for any accidents incurred whilst using a pole without a mat.
Payment is to be taken before the class takes place.
If you are late to a class you must ensure you sort payment with the staff as soon as you arrive. If you need to miss a class please give us at least 24 hours’ notice, then we can offer your place out to someone on the waiting list.
If a block booking is paid it will be for consecutive weeks only, we do not offer refunds for illness or missed classes that drop within the consecutive week allocated to your block booking payment. Pole Intentions reserves the right to refuse entry to the studio for any reason. In the event of bad weather there will be notices placed on our social media pages.
For courses/workshops the class fee or deposit must be paid at time of booking and the balance of the class / course must be paid at least 1 week in advance of the date of booking. In the event of cancellation payments made are non-refundable
It is the sole responsibility of every student to inform the instructor of any recent sickness, injury or reason that they cannot train or exercise. If you injure yourself in class no matter how minor it maybe, it is very important to tell your instructor straight away. People believed to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be asked to leave classes IMMEDIATELY.
Direction must be given by your instructor you are NOT permitted to ‘spot’ or teach other students whilst attending classes at Pole Intentions. This is for your own safety. Spotting techniques can be complicated and require a certain amount of strength, as well as differing from move to move.
Please wait for the instructor do not show or help other students into or out of moves. Our insurance only covers appointed persons to teach. Therefore, if someone is trying a move they have not been shown by an appointed person, Pole Intentions will not be liable for any compensation. Every individual is taught moves based on their previous experience, flexibility and strength. Pole fitness instructions simplify moves to help the student understand how a move/technique is done. If you were to show someone a new move and miss out a piece of vital information, this could result in a fellow student spending endless amounts of energy, wrongly trying to get into/out of a move with the poor techniques or potentially injuring themselves. Therefore, we request you DO NOT teach other students new moves during the class. Only appointed persons are permitted to teach.
