Do I have to book for the classes?

Some classes do require bookings, while others do not. Information on booking requirements and contact details are contained in the block timetables located on the website. Please note: bookings are made direct with suppliers, not the Activate team. 

What if I haven’t done the activity before?

Great! Activate is all about trying out new things to see if you like them. All of the suppliers must scale the workout to suit beginners, so get out there and give it a go.

How do I keep up to date with the program?

The Activate Facebook page is the easiest way to keep up to date with the program and be notified of any last minute changes or cancellations. We also send out an e-newsletter with updates a few times during each block.

Can I bring children to the classes?

Some classes are child friendly while others offer creche. Limited detail on this is contained in the timetable but if you would like more information it is best to contact each supplier direct.
If your child would like to participate in a class but is under the age of 16, please contact the supplier directly to discuss their ability to participate in that specific class. Unfortunately for insurance purposes however they will be unable to register for the Activate Program. 

Can I bring along a friend who isn’t registered?

Anyone that attends Activate sessions must be a registered participant for insurance reasons.
