Monthly we review these charges and charge the card on file for these items collectively. You can review your account charges by logging into your account and clicking the “purchases” tab.
How does your late cancellation/no show policy work?
In order to provide the greatest access to classes for our clients and in the interest of fairness, we enforce a strict cancelation policy. By accepting these Terms and Conditions, You acknowledge that you have read and understand the Our Cancelation Policy.
In order to cancel a SPIRE Fitness class, you must cancel your reservation four hours before your scheduled evening classes (any class with a start time after 11:59 AM) AND you must cancel your reservation ten hours before your scheduled morning classes (any class with a start time before 11:59 AM). You can cancel your reservation in the following ways:

What if I am running late? Can I still attend class?
For riders running late: We ask that you call the studio to let us know that you are on the way. The front desk will hold your reservation. If you do not call to let us know you are on your way, in fairness to our riders, bikes will be released five minutes before class begins. However, five-minutes after the class has started you will not be allowed to enter the studio. This is both for your safety and the enjoyment and focus of other riders. First-time riders/rowers will not be allowed to join class after class has begun.
I need to leave early. Will that be a problem?
If you're planning on leaving early, we kindly request that you tell the instructor ahead of time. Please leave before the final stretch so it doesn’t disrupt class. If possible, please choose a bike, rower or mat near the door so as to minimize any potential disturbance to others. If you plan to leave more than 7-8 minutes before class ends, please forgo attending that class.
What is the waitlist policy?
If your preferred class time is completely booked, we highly recommend placing yourself on the waitlist. As spots open up, they are assigned to waitlisted clients in the order in which they registered. Please purchase a class or package before signing up on the waitlist. The class will be returned to your account for future use if you are not added into class. We do not provide refunds for SPIRE Fitness class purchases.
If a spot becomes available, you will receive notification from SPIRE Fitness via email confirming your automatic enrollment (note: please check your SPIRE account to be sure your email address is correct). You also have the option to enroll in text message reminders. Ask the front desk for more information.
If you are no longer interested in a class for which you are on the waitlist, please remove yourself from the waitlist (online or by emailing the studio at email@example.com) to avoid a late cancellation charge of $10 or losing your credit.
Class reservations cannot be interchanged. If you are scheduled for one class and receive a spot from a waitlisted class, please cancel one of them at least 4 hours prior to the class start time for evening classes and 10 hours prior to the class start time for morning classes to avoid being double charged.
Walk-ins are welcome. Should any last-minute spots open up prior to the start of class, we will gladly offer them to any walk-ins. Your account will be charged upon confirmation of a spot in class.
You will be charged a $19 no show fee for holding a waitlist spot should you receive one and not show up for class. Please note the waitlist is no longer applicable 4 hours prior to the class start of evening classes and 10 hours prior to the class start of morning classes. Keep checking our website for last minute openings. Class availability can be viewed online.

I'm new to spire's classes, will I be able to handle it?
Yes! In each of our classes, the difficulty is at your discretion. We strongly encourage you to take classes regularly to build a solid physical base and an intellectual understanding of each discipline.
For the SPIRE RIDE indoor cycling workout, you have control over the resistance knob on your bike. Only you can adjust it. Our instructors will inSPIRE you to push yourself in class. Ultimately you choose your resistance and how hard you want to push yourself that day. Our bikes are equipped with an advanced console that will measure your watts, speed, distance, RPM, heart rate and more. That information will be for you to see only so you can monitor your workout. If you want to go all out, the good news is that you are on an indoor bike and won't have to walk home!
For the SPIRE CREW indoor rowing workout, our water-based rower uses a unique WaterFlywheel which mimics the dynamic resistance of a boat gliding across the water. This provides a smooth pull and a soothing, wave-like sound. Just like rowing on water, resistance increases as your speed and intensity increases. Our rowers are equipped with a monitor that will measure your watts, speed, stroke rate, total distance and more. That information will be for you to see only so you can monitor your workout. You choose your own pace and enjoy the power of water, all without getting wet!
For SPIRE TRX, we recommend taking a SPIRE TRX Intro class before attending a regular SPIRE TRX or SPIRE TRX + Crew class. This class will break down the basic movements and help you better understand proper form. Don’t see an intro class you can attend? Request one by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our "Team Crew" and "TRX + Rip" classes are not recommended for new clients. We offer and TRX + Rip Intro classes (see schedule here) and encourage clients to take 3+ SPIRE Crew classes before jumping into a Team Crew Class for the best experience.

Something you are not afraid to perSPIRE in! Comfortable clothes are key. For our cycling classes, we recommend spandex, tight-fitting pants/shorts or padded cycling shorts for the best ride.
