So do you get 5 1 hour classes each week for 8 weeks?
If so does that mean you have to do 1 hour each night Monday - Thursday
and Saturday morning?
Or is it 8 weeks of 1 hour per week?

When they say 5 classes per week, does that mean you can go to all five classes, each week for 8 weeks?

Edit: And can I redeem it whenever I like? So I can start my 8 weeks now, or next week, or whenever, provided it's before the closing date?

You are entitled to up to 40 hours classes in total so the option is there to do 5 x 1 hour classes a week if you can manage :) You can also mix and match your class locations on different days to suit you.

All members are on their own membership dates so you can start on any day as long as it's before the 30th September.

Option is there to do up to 40 hours classes in total in any location.

Good question :) I've just confirmed with Fitsquad and there is a missed week discount.

If you miss 7 consecutive days and let them know beforehand, they will record the week(s) you'll be away and give you a discount voucher off you next eight week subscription.


Maximum of 4 weeks Missed Week Discount per member per calendar year, any seven consecutive days constitutes one week.
  • 1 Week away - € 15 Discount Voucher
  • 2 Weeks away - € 30 Discount Voucher
  • 3 Weeks away - € 45 Discount Voucher
  • 4 Weeks away - € 60 Discount Voucher
There are T&C's to this found here http://www.fitsquad.ie...cing.php?itemID=1210

tbh, I've never seen the value in this, at least with a gym you're paying to use their facilities, this is being done in a public park, you'd be just as well to go for a jog/run yourself in the park yourself for free

No sorry if I wasn't clear. This membership is for an 8 week block of classes.

Every week, Fitsquad run 5 hour long classes so over 8 weeks you have access to 40 hours classes in total. This link to their website might help http://www.fitsquad.ie/pricing.php

Thanks for the feedback. From speaking to Fitsquad, people who join are almost all ex-gym members who couldn't motivate themselves to keep going. A group atmosphere with professional trainers gives most people the extra push they need.

Looks good, just one question.

Is there a max number of people per class or a trainer-trainee ratio?

Don't fancy paying to be in a huge class of people with one trainer.

I've read through the website, but couldn't find anything on this question,
Thanks,

So max you can do is 5 hours a week for 8 weeks = 40 hours training
or
minimum 8 weeks for 1 hour a week = 8 hours training.

In most cases, the max number of people per class is 25 with 2 trainers on hand.
