Group Fitness Policies

Preregistration

You can sign up a week in advance and up to 15 minutes before the class starts. You are not required to sign up before the session, but pre-registering will guarantee you a spot in your chosen class.

Must be 16 years old to participate in group fitness classes

Check-In

Once you register on IMleagues you will receive check-in priority. If “registered participants” do not arrive at least five minutes before the class starts, their placement in the class will be given to someone else in the standby line. Check-in begins 15 minutes prior to the class start time.

Late Entry

In order to prevent injury or medical emergencies, you are not allowed to enter a group fitness class five minutes after the class has started. This is to ensure you receive appropriate warm-ups for each class and do not disturb the class that is in session.
