We've updated the app waitlist process. When a spot in a full class or pool lane opens, ALL members on the waitlist are notified. First come, first served. We found that more often than not, when the 1st person on the list was notified, it was either too close to class time for them to make it, their plans changed, or they don't get the notification... so the spot went unused. Offering it to everyone provides more opportunity for the spot to be claimed and for you to get to take the class.
The image above shows where you can find the waitlist notifications in the app and how to book the spot when it becomes available.
REMINDER: Arrive to class on time or a few minutes early! If members are not in class at the scheduled start time, the instructor reserves the right to give away the spot to another member.

With warmer weather and an increasing number of vaccines available, many people are feeling a lift in what's being called "COVID fatigue". We don't want to lose sight of the mental benefits of feeling happier and less fatigued. However, we are still in the midst of a pandemic and want to take an opportunity to refresh and remind everyone of the guidelines and expectations we have in place for all members and staff regardless of whether or not you have received a vaccine.
In April we will be launching our first Virtual Small Group Training program. The program will be limited to a small number of participants and held via Zoom. This will allow for a personal experience between trainer and participants and for you to participate from anywhere you are comfortable.
Based on Dr. Izumi Tabata’s research with the National Institute of Fitness and Sports, Tabata Challenge is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout, featuring a variety of 20-second exercises, alternating with 10 seconds of rest, designed to increase strength, stamina, speed, agility, and cardiovascular capacity, all while burning fat and increasing lean muscle mass!
If you've ever been curious about HIIT classes or building your own HIIT workouts, Tabata Challenge is a great way to experience the workout with expert guidance and learn how to incorporate the benefits of HIIT in your solo (or partner) workouts. Every session is unique, so you’ll always be challenged and never be bored!
