and Saturday before 1:00pm (Sunday not being a business day). “No-show”, last minute
cancellations or last minute re-scheduled appointments will be charged the full amount for the
missed session. Exceptions to this rule will be dealt with on an individual basis and are at the
discretion of Innovative Fitness. (Please note that those customers providing adequate notice or
those granted an exception for a missed appointment can make up their credited time as long as
it falls within the period stated in the policy above).
If you are going to be away for any sessions, it is your responsibility to either call in or speak with
the receptionist directly, as the training coaches are not in charge of the scheduling. Either, speak
with the front desk, leave a voicemail message, e-mail your message or write down your requests
on the sheet provided at the front counter.
If you are late, be advised that the training coach will have to end the session at the normally
scheduled time. Please remember that the training coach is on a schedule.

then the other partner will be billed a “singles” rate corresponding with the number of training
sessions per week that they are currently in (i.e. 2x per week, etc.). Should one partner not cancel
ahead of time within the stipulated 24-hour time period, then both partners will be billed as usual,
