At FWRD, we like to focus less on numbers and more on having fun. We believe if you shift your focus from weight loss to moving your body to feel good, strong and comfortable in your skin, you will feel healthier and happier! But...if you really need an answer, it all depends on YOU. Caloric expenditure is based on several factors and the most important of which is your personal level of intensity during the session. The following outlines industry averages for the types of workouts you'll experience at FWRD: Interval: 500+ Barre: 250+ Heated Cardio Sculpt: 500+
Our classes are designed with every type of student in mind and our instructors will offer modifications to suit the daily and changing needs of our students. We are on this journey together and it is our primary goal that everyone achieves personal success in class. Your path, your pace.

There is no charge to your account if you cancel a reservation prior to the 8 hour mark preceding your scheduled class. Late cancellations and no shows will be charged to your account or credit card on file. To cancel a class, please log into your online account and click the cancel button, or call our front desk at 858.433.0377 and our staff will gladly assist you. Please note, you must speak with a member of our staff live; voicemail messages left after the close of business for a morning class will not be honored. Members and Unlimited package holders will be assessed a fee of $15 per class ($10 for each childcare spot) for any late cancellation or $15 ($10 for each childcare spot) for no show. Package holders and limited memberships will lose the class session. Late cancel fees and loss of sessions apply to classes that are currently waitlisted or originally had a waitlist. Monthly auto-pay members must request cancellation in writing 30 days in advance of their cancellation date and once contract terms have been met. Please call or email the studio for help cancelling your membership and for any further questions on our cancellation policies.
If you are unable to reserve a spot in your desired class because it is fully booked, we recommend adding your name to the class waitlist. You can add yourself to the waitlist by first purchasing a class online and then either adding yourself online or calling the studio and asking to be added by our front desk team. If you do not receive a spot in your desired class, a class credit will remain in your account for use on future classes. Please note, the cost of the class is non-refundable.If a spot becomes available in your desired class before our reservation window closes (more than eight hours before class), you will automatically be enrolled. At that time, you will receive an email and/or text message confirming your enrollment into the class from the waitlist. Please note, we assume you want to take EVERY CLASS you are waitlisted for. If you are no longer interested in taking class, you must remove yourself from the waitlist (either online, or by calling the studio and speaking with someone live) or you risk being automatically enrolled and charged whether or not you attend. If a spot in a class that you have been waitlisted for opens with at least 8 hours to go before class, you will be notified by email or text (you choose your preference). Please note: If you are scheduled for one FWRD class and then receive a spot from the waitlist for a different FWRD class, you will be charged for both classes unless you cancel one of them before the 8 hour cancellation window. Beware of double booking! If you’re in the neighborhood, you are welcome to drop by and check with our front desk staff to see if you can snag a last minute spot for a class. Please be aware that any waitlisted clients physically present at the start of class time will take priority over drop-in clients. Your account will be charged upon confirmation of a spot in class.

Any vacancies at the start of class may be given to waitlist participants at 5 minutes before the session begins.

If you call and let us know you are on your way, we can hold your spot for up to 5 minutes after the class start time. If it is longer than the aforementioned time, you will not be admitted into class so as not to disrupt the other students or compromise your safety.
