  • Each Zone will need to be booked and paid for separately, you will not be able to train over 2 zones within one session for safety and hygiene reasons. You can book and pay for 1 session in each Zone per day if required.
  • If you have a Rainbow membership and book a slot then fail to attend, you will need to pay for that session next time you are in. Due to the restricted numbers of offer there will be no negotiation on this policy.
