How can I cancel a class booking?
You can cancel online - click here to login. Alternatively, you can cancel by calling the club or our Customer Services Team on 0207 717 9000

What happens if I can't turn up to a class I've booked?
We want to ensure that as a member of Virgin Active you get the most out of your membership. Classes are a popular part of our offering. So if you book a place and can’t make it, let us know so that someone else can take your space. You can cancel classes online via our app, website or by calling your club. If you need to cancel your class within 30 minutes of it starting, please call us so we can allocate your space to another member on the waiting list.

Members tell us it’s really frustrating when they can’t get a space in a class that isn’t full. If you no-show without , we’ll send you a little reminder email. And if this happens three times within 30 days, there’ll be a seven-day block on you booking a class. This won’t affect any bookings you’ve already made and you can still just turn up to classes if there are spaces available.

Personal Training is quick, safe and much more fun than working on your own and our Personal Trainers are smart, friendly and great at motivation so you always go that little bit further than you ever believed possible. Plus you can experiment with new kit, techniques exercises.

We begin with an in-depth assessment of your fitness and health then create a tailored personal training plan. You’ll learn how to stay motivated and inspired and your Personal Trainer will be by your side, cheering you on and giving lots of advice on nutrition, diet and more. What’s not to like? If you’re a member, be sure to chat to our expert fitness team on your next visit, they’ll explain more about our Personal Training options.
