2. DRESS CODE
All Club users are expected to wear suitable attire at all times while using Club facilities. GYMBOX considers suitable attire to be: a t-shirt or vest; shorts or trousers suitable for training; and closed shoes suitable for training (with exceptions for certain class activities).
The following is NOT acceptable:
Inappropriate attire can be offensive or intimidating to other Club users, and as such will not be tolerated. Refusal to comply with the dress code may result in the Club user being ejected from the facilities; continued refusal is a breach of the Rules and as such GYMBOX may terminate the user’s Membership as stated in the Terms and Conditions.
All Club users should use suitable measures to maintain basic standards of hygiene, such as using deodorant, showering if needed, and wearing clean gym attire whilst training.
All Members, Guests must conduct themselves in a respectful manner whilst using Club facilities. Any Club user who acts in an intimidating, abusive, violent or disrespectful manner may be ejected from the Club, and Members may have their Membership terminated with no refund of fees already paid.
During busy periods, Club users are to use only one weights station at a time. All weights and equipment should be replaced correctly after use, and equipment and machines should be wiped down.
Any Club users who are unsure of how to use a piece of equipment should seek instruction before doing so. GYMBOX will not take any responsibility where a Club user sustains injury from incorrect use of equipment. If any equipment is found to be faulty or malfunctioning, please report this to GYMBOX staff immediately.
All Club users must comply with any reasonable request from GYMBOX staff in relation to health and safety, and to ensure smooth running of the Club.
No Club user may bring external personal trainers to the Club or act as a personal trainer, paid or otherwise. GYMBOX Very Personal Trainers (VPT) have been confirmed as holding the required certification and insurance, and as such are the only trainers permitted to work in the Club.

Club users may only use the boxing ring if supervised by a fully qualified GYMBOX combat coach or VPT, or as part of a scheduled class. Unsupervised use is not permitted under any circumstances.
GYMBOX timetables, instructors and classes are subject to change at any time. GYMBOX will endeavour to provide notice when a class is unable to take place for any reason.
Members are recommended to book in advance to ensure that a class has space for them. Members can book online from 10:00am, 7 days in advance of the class. A member cannot book onto classes that overlap each other. GYMBOX operate with a "three strikes" non-attendance rule, whereby three no shows in any 30 day rolling period will result in a one-week advance booking restriction. A member must cancel a class booking at least one hour in advance of the class to avoid receiving a strike. If the class begins at fully capacity then we will waive this strike.
If a class is full a member can book onto a waiting list. An email will be sent confirming the Members place on the waiting list. When a space becomes available members will be automatically moved into the class and notified via email. Once on a waiting list Members are committing to attend and could be auto booked into the class up to 1 hour before the class start time. If you decide you can no longer attend please remove yourself from the waiting list as a strike will be applied in line with our class cancellation policy. If the class begins at fully capacity then we will waive this strike.
Participants booked into class should swipe in the club at least 5 minutes before class start time, with participants expected to arrive into class before the class start time. If a participant arrives late, the booking is automatically removed from the class and opened up for other members at the class start time, if you do arrive late and there is a space still available, to avoid a booking ban please ensure you book back into the class otherwise a strike will be applied.

Members will need to see reception and pay a recovery fee, to gain access to their belongings. Any belongings not picked up within a reasonable time will be kept in the Club for a reasonable period and then may be donated to charity.
