Our mission at MOVATI Athletic is to consistently deliver an experience that makes our members & guests feel welcome, feel comfortable and feel healthy.  We are passionately committed to maximizing your well-being. Our established guidelines and policies will optimize every member’s health and fitness experience.

We are implementing a 5-minute warning before the start of each class. If you have pre-registered and fail to arrive before the 5-minute warning, your access to the class will only be granted on the remaining availability. (first-come, first-served basis). Also, no late entries will be permitted. We must start our classes on time to allow you and others an opportunity to enjoy the full experience.
