Class Capacities

Classes are capped at 18 in Santry, 16 in Naas-Newbridge, 10 in Celbridge, 16 in Dunleer and 12 in Smithfield. These caps are in place to ensure the safety of our members and also that everybody has enough equipment and space to perform the workout as desired.

Waiting List

If somebody cancels their spot in class then the next in line on the waitlist will automatically be added to the class unless this occurs inside the cancellation window. Inside the window, everybody on the waiting list will receive an email and at that point whoever books first gets the spot.
