Carry Over Of Weekly Classes Package
Sessions can be carried over from week to week if needed and members can have the full calendar month in order to get their set package completed.
BUT Credits/classes cannot be carried forward from one month to the next month. Once a calendar month is over a brand new package comes into effect.
Sessions missed out on/not attended in that calendar month are therefore NON-REFUNDABLE.
