Nancy the reason for the 2hr cancellation is because I would rather be able to hold the class vs. cancel it. I get a lot of last minute sign ups. Also I live in a small town & my instructors only teach at my facility so they are not opposed to the policy. I can t do what you suggested about teaching for a half hour because this applies to our SPINNING® classes only. You cant hold a 1/2 hour Spin class. I have no attendance issues with my Group X classes. Thank you for your time!
