Classes, Courses, and Appointments

A group exercise created hosted by you with a date and time, facility, trainer, and capacity that can be booked by clients on an ad-hoc basis without a long term commitment.

The key differences between 'Classes' and 'Courses'

There are a few major differences between class and courses:

  1. Under a course, members are usually expected to attend each class on the course schedule, whereas, with a class, members can choose what classes and what times they wish to book in
  2. Under a course, the fee for each class is paid upfront and thus the gym/studio is paid regardless of attendance. With a class, the member must book and pay/use credit before each individual class.
  3. Under a course, all members will start together and finish together, however with a class, the members in each class may change day to day.
