Fee charging policy

All sessions will be paid according to the session rates charged at the time of booking. Payment for single sessions will be paid for at the beginning of the session.

Making payment

All payments can be made at our Front of House.

Getting set up

  • All memberships are formulated by a direct debit agreement and must be set up at the Common Purpose Front of House.
  • All memberships will start on either the 1st, or the 15th of the month. The start date is dependent on when the membership sign up occurs and the client can elect what date suits best
  • Cancelling your membership ahead of the agreed time frame requires the client/member to pay a 1-month cancellation fee. The cancellation fee will be the price of the 1-month membership rate that you signed up to

Carrying over unused sessions (surge sessions)

  • If you have been unable to fulfil all your sessions for the month, these can be carried over to the next. You can use these sessions in addition to the sessions you pay for in your membership.
  • Common Purpose refers to unused sessions as ‘surge sessions’ to encourage you to train more frequently to make up for missed training
  • You cannot collect more than 4 additional sessions in one go
  • Should you continually fail to fulfil the sessions in your membership, we will bring this to your attention and suggest alternative memberships of packages

Freezing 1 month

Based on your membership the terms for freezing are as follows:

Three month term – Client can freeze for 1 month but still needs to train for 3 months in total. This will result in the time to complete this package to be 4 months

Six month term – Client can freeze for 1 month but still needs to train for 6 months in total. This will result in the time to complete this package to be 7 months

Twelve month term – Client can freeze for 1 month only and DO NOT need to train for 12 months in total. This will result in the time to complete this package to be 11 months

Ongoing twelve month term – Client can freeze for 2 months only each 1-year membership cycle.


  • Packages can be bought at Front of House or on the Common Purpose App.
  • All packages have a 1 year expiry from the date of purchase and any unused sessions will not be refunded.
  • Refunds – The purchasing of a package shows commitment from the client/member and Common Purpose will not provide any refund unless you cannot continue due to medical reasons and provide a valid medical note. Should you not wish to continue you can transfer your remaining sessions to a friend or family member. Please email [email protected] or speak to the clubs House Manager

Facilities & the club

Door access cards/membership card

For security and safety, Common Purpose requires that all members/clients use their door access card/membership card to access the facility.

We require all members/clients to tap their card on the card reader at the Front of House to reconcile their session.

If you lose your card you will need to pay a £5 replacement fee to receive a new one.

If you forget your card 3 times in a row, we will require you to purchase a new one for £5.


Lockers are available for use by Members and their guests whilst they are on the Club’s premises, subject to availability. Members must ensure that the contents of the daily lockers are removed at the end of their visit.

The club reserves the right to open lockers without the member’s permission or the member being present. All bags must be kept in lockers and should not be taken into the fitness areas. The Company reserves the right to remove the contents from any ‘non-permanent’ locker, which has not been emptied after the visit. Property cleared from lockers, or left on the premises, shall be held for between 10 – 31 days, dependant on storage available onsite.  Unclaimed items are donated to charity.
