Frequently asked questions

Class Policies and FAQs

How do I sign up?

You will need to set up an account with MINDBODY to pre-register for classes. We
highly recommend pre-registering for all classes, as they may be filled when you
arrive. It is important to us that we are able to accommodate all clients, so this
pre-registration will help both you and the instructor prepare.
Downloading the MINDBODY app on your phone gives you the easiest and most
efficient access to the Local B class of your choice. If you are a first timer and you need some assistance getting set up, call the studio
and we will hold your spot and help you get set up with the online registration
process. You will need to show up at least 10 minutes before class in order to get
registered, as well as sign our waivers.

Do I need to come early?

If you are new, please come 10 minutes before class begins to make sure you are
registered. We will show you around the studio and get to know you a little before
class starts!
Please let us know any injuries you have or have had in the past, so that
we know how to make the appropriate modifications during your workout.

What do I do if I am running late?

It happens! Please enter quietly and find a space where you can fit your mat. If you
are more than 5 minutes late, we ask that you do not enter the studio area in fairness
to other students in the class.

Do I need to pre-register?

Yes, We have a waitlist policy. If you come to the studio and have not registered,
there may be others that were on the waitlist and will be given priority to openings.
If it is your first class, we will try to accommodate you to the best of our ability.

How long ahead of class can I register?

You can register days in advance or up until 30 minutes before a class. If it is after
the 30 minute mark, you can call the studio to see if there are openings available and
we can register you for class.

What is the cancellation policy?

Please cancel class in the app or online if you can no longer make your scheduled
time. We have a 2 hour cancellation policy. If you do not cancel before the 2 hour
cancellation window, you will be charged a late cancellation fee of $10 if you have an
unlimited membership. If you have a class pack, one of your classes will be used.
Incase of an emergency please call the studio. If you cancel early (outside of the 2
hour window) it will not affect your classes or membership.
You will need to have a credit card attached to your account, if you do not, the fee will be added to your account. Once you have a $20 unpaid bill on your account, your membership will be frozen until it is paid off.

Does the studio close on certain days?

If you are one of our email subscribers, we will keep you up-to-date on any days that
we plan on being closed for holidays or studio updates etc. We also follow the
Durham, NH school district for snow closings or late openings. You can find that on
WMUR or on our Instagram account (@localbstudio).

What should I wear?

Wear a tanktop or t-shirt, and fitted workout leggings that you are comfortable in.
You do not need shoes or socks, we work out barefoot for barre classes! Please remove them and place them in the designated area of the studio.
For cardio classes (Cardio Blitz or HIIT) Please carry in a clean pair of sneakers.

What should I bring?

We provide all of the equipment that you will need, including your mat. If you tend
to get sweaty, and we hope that you do, you can bring a face towel. Please bring
your own water bottle to stay hydrated during class.

What ages can take barre?

Anyone over the age of 16 can take barre in our studio! If you under the age of 18, a
parent or guardian will need to sign a waiver for you.

Can I take Local Barre classes if I am pregnant?

Yes! As long as you have been taking barre classes pre-pregnancy, it is safe to
continue! Our trainers have all been trained in making pregnancy modifications for
our students. Please let the instructor know before class, so they can help make the
appropriate modifications and give you the appropriate equipment and attention
that you may need. As always, please speak with your healthcare provider before
taking a workout class of any kind.

Is there a waitlist?

We have a waitlist if class is already fully registered. There tends to be cancellations,
and you will be notified if you have gotten into the class. If you are on the waitlist
and get into class, we expect that you are coming and will have the same
cancellation policy.
If you know you cannot make it ahead of time, please remove yourself from the waitlist so that you do not get charged a fee.

Can I freeze my membership?

We understand that many of you are students, and go home for breaks, and
summer. If you are on a student membership, we allow a free membership freeze
for the summer as well as winter break. However, it will automatically unfreeze on
the day classes on campus resume. If you would like to extend the freezing period,
there will be a $15.00 charge.
The maximum amount of time to freeze is 3 months.
For all non-student accounts, there will be a $15.00 fee to freeze your account for up
to 3 months.

How do I cancel my membership?

There will be a $30.00 fee to cancel your membership. Cancellations have to be done
in person at the studio. Exception to this fee are student memberships upon

Is there parking available?

Parking is free for one hour. Please find a parking meter and press the one hour free button and place the slip on your dashboard!

What is Barre?

Barre is a low impact workout that incorporates elements of pilates, yoga, ballet, and weight training. Our brand of barre is more of a fitness class than it is based on dance. We concentrate on tiny movements over all muscle groups to fatigue the muscles and build endurance. These classes are great for any level of fitness. We have three different types of barre classes, so please make sure to read each of their descriptions to know what suits you best.
