It is Carpe Diem Personal Trainings policy that we receive at least 12 hour’s notice to cancel a session e.g. your session is booked at 6pm Friday – Renee must be notified by 6am Friday at the latest– Failure to give us at LEAST 12 hour’s notice to cancel/reschedule a session will result in you being charged for the session. Exceptions will only be made in the case of a medical emergency accompanied by a doctor’s note. If you cancel more than 12 hours prior to a session you WIL NOT be charged.
If you are late for a scheduled session the session time will not run longer and will finish at the scheduled time. E.g. if your session is booked for 6pm-6.30pm and you turn up at 6.10 your session will still finish at 6.30pm.
All sessions are run in wet weather, the only reason sessions will be cancelled is in the event of a fire or if the session location is deemed unsafe.
DIRECT DEBITS – These take 24 hours for any changes to take affect so if changes need to be made to a payment we require a minimum of 24 hours before the next payment date.
