Welcome to ESquared! The only app you need to find the gym to suit you at a place and time that suits you. By downloading or using our application (“App”), website, social media pages or other Services provided by us, you are agreeing to these Terms of Service (“Terms” for short) and our Privacy and Cookies Policy. Please read this carefully so that you know what you can expect from us and what your responsibilities are.
Our Terms set out the contract between you and us and include our Privacy and Cookies Policy and any additional terms or policies that we notify you of.
1. Our Services
We enable users, through the ESquared App installed on your GPS-enabled smartphone, to locate Facilities where you can buy a place in a class or a session (such as at a gym, wellness centre or with personal trainer) at the time and place offered (our “Services”). These Services include the use of fitness facilities, fitness classes, personal training sessions, wellness services and more. We are constantly adding a variety of services to improve the experience and variety available to our users.
The time slots and availability of Facility and services will vary depending on how many spaces are available at any one particular time. Even though we are constantly adding to the number of Facilities available on our Service, we cannot guarantee the availability of sessions or Facilities as access is on a space-available basis.
ESquared accepts orders for a place in a class or a session as a disclosed agent for the Facility (as principal). ESquared does not operate a Facility or offer places in classes or sessions to use a Facility. Class places and sessions are purchased by you from the Facility. As ESquared is the agent for the Facility, the contract for the class place or a session is between you and the Facility. ESquared is not a party to that contract and acts only as an intermediary between you and the Facility.
CLASSES AND SESSIONS
You may place an order for a place in a class or a session at an available time slot of your choice. A binding contract is formed between you and the Facility when we accept your order and send to you a unique pass code that will allow you to visit your chosen Facility once at the time that you have chosen. Please note that the pass code will only be valid for the specific Facility at the specific time and for the specific service that you have paid for.
When you purchase a place in a class or a session, you are entering into a contract with the Facility you have chosen and ESquared will collect payment from you on behalf of the Facility. At the point of purchase, you will be charged 100% of the amount shown.
3. Cancellation and Refund Policy
You may cancel a 2-hour gym session up to the start time. Upon cancellation you will receive a credit in your account for the amount paid, and this credit can be used within 30 days from the date of credit issue at any venue. After 30 days, any unused credit will expire and be removed from your account.
If you do not check-in for your gym session you will still be charged for the session.
All cancellations must be carried out using the ESquared app.
For class places,
- If you cancel more than 12 hours before the start time of the specified class, you will receive a credit in your account for the amount paid. This credit must be used within 30 days from the date of credit. After 30 days, any unused credit will expire and be removed from your account.
- If you cancel between 1 -12 hours before the start time of the specified class, you will receive a credit in your account for the amount paid (“Specific Credit”). This Specific Credit may only be used within 30 days at the site of the original booking only. You are only allowed to receive one Specific Credit per class provider per 30 day period.
- You will not receive a credit or refund for cancellation with less notice than required above.
For personal training or wellness sessions:
- If you cancel more than 24 hours before the start time of the specified session, you will receive a credit in your account for the amount paid. This credit must be used within 30 days from the date of credit. After 30 days, any unused credit will expire and be removed from your account.
- If you cancel less than 24 hours before the start time of the specified session or you do not show up, you will not receive a refund or a credit. You may however contact the Facility to find out if the Facility will allow a rescheduled appointment in the Facility’s sole discretion.
If you are refused entry into a Facility for health reasons, you may contact ESquared to obtain a credit. After a place in a class or a session has been attended / fulfilled, it cannot be refunded.
4. Minimum Age
You have to be 16 years of age or above to buy a place in a class or a session. Please note that certain Facilities may require a minimum age of 18 years of age. Please check the Facility’s profile page before you make a purchase.
5. Your Account and Account Security
You may browse through our Services without creating an account. When you want to purchase a place in a class or a session, you will need to create an account by providing information including your email address, a password and contact details.
Here are some commitments you make to us about registering and maintaining the security of your account:
- You will not create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission
- You will not transfer your account to anyone without first getting our written permission
- If we disable your account, you will not create another one without our permission
- You will not share your password or let anyone else access your account, or do anything else that may jeopardize the security of your account
- You will ensure that your account information is accurate, complete and up to date and your email address is valid; and
- We reserve the right to remove or reclaim a username if we believe appropriate (such as when a trademark owner complains about a username that does not closely relate to a user’s actual name).
If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password or account, please contact us by sending us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
6. Your Personal Information

8. Mobile network charges
Our Services may require the use of data access and text messaging and may incur charges from your mobile network provider. You are responsible for all charges that your mobile network provider may apply.
Once you have activated your place in a class or a session by visiting your chosen Facility at the allocated time slot, you will be prompted to leave feedback about your experience at the Facility. You understand that any feedback that you provide will be shared with the Facilities and publicly displayed on our Services (including our App) so that it is viewable by the general public.

he Facility will also be able to provide star rating feedback for each Facility user. However, your star rating will only be shared with ESquared. The default star rating for a new user is 5 stars. A user’s star rating may be affected by different factors, including, for instance automatic deductions if the user does not check out before the end of the purchased 2 hour time slot. Deductions increase in proportion to the lateness of the check out by the user. If a user’s or Facility’s star rating falls below 2 stars, we reserve the right to refuse use of our App or Services.
Whilst ESquared does not monitor any feedback or content posted by users, Facilities or any third parties, when it comes to our notice, we reserve the right to remove or refuse to display any content that breaches our Terms or is otherwise unfair or objectionable. If you see anything that you are concerned about and want to notify us, please do so by pressing the “Report this post” button.

These credit points are not exchangeable or redeemable for cash and may expire within a set period of time if not used. Credit points may be redeemed in accordance with the credit redemption policy of ESquared. Please see the promotion rules for more information.

The courts of England and Wales have jurisdiction to settle any dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms, or any non-contractual obligation arising out of or in connection with these Terms.
You accept that this agreement for our Services is personal to you and agree not to transfer it to anyone else, or to try to do so. We can transfer this agreement for our Services to another company provided this does not adversely affect your rights under the agreement.
After these Terms come to an end, the provisions of this agreement, which by their nature extend beyond the termination, will survive termination of the agreement or termination of your use or access to all or any portion of our site.
