Booking Sessions with a Coachability Coach
How much does it cost to book a training session?

There is no joining fee, no monthly subscription and no commitment.
Where do training sessions take place?
Training locations can be found on a coaches profile page. Many coaches have 2 or 3 training locations where the deliver most of their sessions. Some coaches are abel to travel within a certain mile radius, this is shown on their profile page.
Can I the contact the coach before booking sessions?
Interested in booking training sessions with a coach but want to make contact with the coach first? Once you've found your coach, you can email the coach at any time by clicking the "Message Coach" button on the coach’s profile page. Your message will be emailed to the coach, and his or her response will be emailed back to you.
Why was my booking request rejected by the coach?
When a booking request is submitted (upon completing the checkout process), we place an authorisation hold on your credit card. This hold typically appears as a pending charge or temporary authorisation on your statement. Your coach will have 24 hours to accept the booking request, at which time we will finalise the transaction. If your coach declines the request or 24 hours elapses, we will release the authorisation hold and our team will follow up to recommend another great coach who is ready to train you.
I haven't had a response from a coach I messaged?
If you do not hear back from a coach within 48 hours of reaching out to them, please confirm your message was sent. It's possible your coach replied to you and the reply ended up in a spam folder in your email account. Confirm that your message was delivered to the coach by looking in your Coachability Inbox. Let us know if you didn't hear back from your coach. We'll do our best to reach the coach and confirm their availability, and in most cases the coach will then follow up with you shortly. However, we find that the best option is to also message additional coaches in case your first choice is currently unavailable. We understand that it can be frustrating to message a coach and not receive a response right away. We encourage coaches to respond as soon as possible, and even require coaches to reply to new messages within 48 hours. There is a chance that the coach is temporarily without access to the internet or email and simply cannot respond to you at the moment.
Managing Your Training Sessions
What is Coachability's cancelation policy for scheduled sessions?
If an athlete needs to cancel a scheduled session, they must provide the coach with at least 24 hours advance notice. If the coach doesn’t receive that 24 hour advance cancellation notice, the coach may, at his or her discretion, mark that session complete and receive payment in full.
Do my unused training sessions ever expire?
No. If you purchase a package of training sessions then you are able to use these as frequently or as infrequently as possible.
