Your initial session is a free trial one. We hope you enjoy it.
The sessions are so successful partly due to the interaction with other members.
By getting to know other members of the group you avail yourself of greater support.
It is possible to change groups if necessary. Always check with your trainer if you need to attend on another day - we have a safe limit of attendees which we won't breach.
