How do the packages work?
At Oncore we operate a pay as you go system where you can buy class packages which can be used in ANY of our classes enabling you to try a variety of different complimentary exercise classes, or you can purchase Yoga/Tone/Pulse/Flex specific packages. We also offer various memberships via a direct debit scheme, see our price listings for more details.
Do you sell Gift Vouchers?
Yes! You can purchase an Oncore Gift Voucher online. Head to prices for more info. You can also call in at the studio and we can organise this for you.
What do I wear?
It's always best to wear something that you feel comfortable in, this allows you to move freely and it is important your clothing is cooling! Yoga is best done barefoot. For Ride our bikes are compatible with SPDs should you wish to bring your own shoes, otherwise trainers will suffice. Free sweat towels are provided for each customer.
Do you have changing rooms and showers?
We have changing rooms with free lockers. . Our showers are stocked with the best Scottish fine soaps products so you can revive after class. There are also GHD hairdryers. Shower towels are available for rental for £1 at reception.
What time should I arrive prior to my class?
If its your first time visiting us we recommend you arrive at least 10 minutes before class starts. This allows a member of staff to show you around and introduce you to the instructor. You will need to be in class at least 5 minutes prior to it starting for the introduction. When the class starts we will be unable allow entry to the room.
If you are a regular attendee to Oncore classes you must be on site, ready to work out at least 3 minutes prior to the class start time to check in and navigate to your studio - spots are released to the waitlist at this time and will not be held.It is your responsibility to communicate any injuries to your instructor in advance of the start of class. When the class starts we will be unable allow entry to the room.
How many days a week should I take class?
At Oncore our classes are highly complementary allowing a full body workout. So you can do a calorie-busting, strength building class like HIIT one day and then allow your body to recover with a stretch and flow from yoga the following day. However, no one knows your body like you do, if you’re feeling sore remember that recovery is an important part of any fitness routine and you should always listen to your body.
What is your cancellation policy?
You are able to cancel all classes 12 hours before your scheduled class time. You can do this through your mindbody account (app or website). Just cancel the same way you booked on Mindbody, and rebook for another time. If a class is cancelled with less than 12 hours notice then you will lose the credits for that class and this cannot be refunded.
