Can I take class if I have an injury?

Yes! Hop into class a few minutes early and use the Zoom chat function to let your instructor know what limitations you’re working with. That way we can help you modify throughout the class. Also, feel free to email us beforehand to get necessary modifications!

Can i take class when i’m pregnant?

Absolutely! Let your instructor know privately before class or via email and we will help you modify the class. Above all, listen to your body!

Do I have to have my camera on?
We would LOVE for you to have your camera on, it helps us give you verbal modifications that keep you safe and make you stronger more quickly. It also adds to the group dynamic for both you and us! Of course if you don’t feel comfortable having your camera on for any reason feel free to keep it off.
How to sign up for a livestream class
If you have a Livestream+On Demand or FORMAT Unlimited Membership you can sign up for classes through your FORMAT account or on the FORMAT App. Just be sure you are clicking the LIVESTREAM class on the schedule. At this time you cannot purchase a Livestream Day Pass on the App. You can purchase and schedule that via our website
How to reserve class for a guest?
Click on the class you would like to reserve for the guest. Change “Reserving For” to “Guest,” choose the payment option from the dropdown menu, members with guest allowances will simply select their membership option. If there is no payment option available add one by selecting “Buy New Membership or Credit.” We strongly suggest that before reserving your guest you have them create an account so they are able to sign the waiver and we can convert them in our system. You can also reserve a guest on your class package!
What’s your cell phone policy?

Please try to distance yourself from your phone for the hour you are in class. It truly increases the mental benefits.
