Perky Rules: 

  • WORK. Show up ready to work! Show up ready in your workout clothing and bring water. Your instructor will let you know if there are any class specific items to bring (eg. yoga mat) and they will inform you of any other specific details on meeting location via message. 
  • EARLY.  You must must show up 10 mins prior to class start time. 
  • CANCELLATIONS. You may cancel reservations up to 6 hours prior to the scheduled start time of your enrolled class. Reservations cancelled after this period will not be subject to a refund and will be charged for either the cost of the class or a max of $15 as a late cancellation fee. 
  • WEATHER. If the class is outdoors and weather is just not cooperating, the instructor has the ability to cancel the class; you will not be charged. 
  • NO SHOW. In the highly unlikely event that your instructor doesn't show up to teach their class, please email Perky immediately! You will not be charged for the class, and the instructor will be given a warning.
