Welcome, we cannot wait for you to try out your first class. Please have a read below to find out all you need to know...


Wear whatever you’re comfortable sweating in, but make sure it’s supportive, workout wear type clothing. Any cross-training trainers will be suitable. Please note trainers are required for all classes (except our Yoga and Pilates classes).

For our [Re]Form, Form and Flow classes (pilates and yoga) you will need to remove your shoes before class. Grip socks are needed for [Re]Form classes.


If you’re a beginner and this is all new to you, no worries, we got you!

For our BoxxPUMP classes, the instructors will run through the basic punches before your first class.

For our [Re]Form classes, the instructors will run through everything you need to know before class.

For all classes instructors will be on hand throughout to guide you or provide you with modifications should need them.


We are only small so don’t have any showers but do have changing facilities.

No bags/coats permitted in the studio itself. We have coat hooks to hang anything which isn’t valuable and Lockers for you to store any valuables. Please note, you will need to bring a padlock or you can purchase one at reception for £5.


We are right next door to South Woodford Station (central line) or you can park for 1 hour free outside on George Lane using the RingGo app (download beforehand and enter your car details etc to save time).


Please arrive 15 minutes before class starts so that you can check in, gear up and get yourself ready for class.


Please do not arrive late as you will not be allowed into class. Due to health and safety reasons you must not miss the warm up.


If you have booked onto a class and don’t show up, for those on class packs we do not offer refunds and your credit will be lost. Monthly members will be charged £10 for a no show (for a main studio class).


We operate a strict cancellation policy for our studio classes. If you cancel late, members will be charged £10 and class pack holders will lose a class credit.

  • Main studio classes - please cancel at least 8 hours before class

  • Reformer studio classes - please cancel at least 12 hours before class

This means that if you cancel within the cancellation window the credit will go back on your account and you can use it for another class in the future. If you cancel less than the time specified above, you will be billed a £10 late fee. If you are unable to attend a class in the studio, please cancel no matter how late so we can make the spot available to someone else on the waitlist.


For our Boxing classes, gloves are a must! If you have your own, that’s cool – please bring them along otherwise no stress, for your first class we have our gloves ready for you to borrow.

After the first class, however, you will need to purchase your own pair (ours are £35) or hire a pair from reception for £3.


Wraps are needed for all Boxing classes. All those who have purchased a welcome offer will be given a FREE pair which can be kept and used for future visits.


If you chose to keep your socks on in our reformer classes, they must be grip socks. All those who have purchased a welcome offer will be given a FREE pair which can be kept and used for future visits.


Staying hydrated is important so please remember to bring a bottle, we have a refill station in the studio or you can purchase bottled water from reception.
