FITNESS PROGRAM MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT SERVICES. The service being requested is for coaching designed to progress you toward ELITE FITNESS. The agreement is for coaching services over a specific period of time during which the student is eligible to partake in any and all activities in accordance with their membership package.
PAYMENT & BILLING: Client has two options for payment: (1) Payment in full may be made for all services, or (2) Monthly/Weekly payment by credit/debit card or EFT per the guidelines on page one of the Agreement. The billing date for the Client will be as noted in the client contract. Payments made in full are not subject to refunds or cancellations.
CLIENT’S RIGHT TO CANCEL:. To cancel, send written notice of your cancellation to the address provided in this contract for sending a notice of cancellation. The best way to cancel is by keeping a photocopy and sending the cancellation by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested. Reasons for cancellation not subject to a cancelation fee are listed below. If you become totally and permanently disabled during your membership term, you may cancel this contract. Common injuries including but not limited to sprains, strains, muscle and joint aches, and other minor injuries are not considered “permanently disabled”. If you have a history of heart disease, you should consult a physician before joining a gym.
If you are deployed for military reasons or you move more than 25 miles from Down Home CrossFit or one of its affiliates during your membership term, you may cancel your contract.
If the buyer wishes to cancel their membership agreement, they must notify in writing their desire to cancel and then is subject to pay 50% of the remaining dues in the agreement. Gym management has the sole authority to discontinue your membership at any time for any reason that may justifiably discredit, harm, or in any way disrupt the business, not limited to community relations, operations, and reputation. Cancelation of accountability meetings and month-2-month agreements must be given 15 days prior to the billing cycle.
Personal Sessions + Financing Policy:
Personal Training financing is a payment structure not a monthly membership. Once a package has been purchased, all payments will be upheld regardless of client involvement with the program.
Personal Training Appointments + Accountability sessions must be canceled within 24 hours of the meeting subject to emergencies. Failure to cancel within 24 hours will result in a $35 dollar charge and loss of the session.
Personal Training Packages Expire within 90-175 days of purchase. This is not subject to yearly plans or other custom packages put together by management.
To be eligible for financing, at least two forms of payment must be on file.
CLIENT’S RIGHT TO HOLD:
The Client may, for periods of 2 weeks or longer, “put on hold” the Agreement. “Hold” indicates a hold in the membership, NOT in the Payment & Billing. Billing continues through the hold period, and the hold dates get added to the end of the Agreement. The request to place the Agreement on hold must be submitted prior to the hold dates (no retroactive holds) and must include an end date (or return date) with the following exceptions: Client is injured or sick, or Client is pregnant and/or has had a baby. In both cases the return date will be mutually determined based on the recovery and recuperation of the Client. Holds will be limited to 2 weeks per 4 month term (6 weeks/12 month). The following reasons are not subject to hold: vacation, needing break etc. Holds must be emailed to [email protected]
Down Home CrossFit and Fitness Center is dedicated to preserving the comfortable, safe, and privacy of all members. The client understands that this is a private membership based facility and if at any point the owner/management deems behavior or actions of the member/client to be in detriment to that environment for any reason the membership will be terminated immediately regardless of past payments. All future payments will be canceled.
Act of God Clause:
Definable as any act or circumstance, phenomenon, or tragedy that was/is unpredictable and unavoidable. In the event an Act Of God forces temporary closure of the business or prevents services to be offered, the payee is still contractually obligated to continue payments scheduled for up to 90 days before being eligible for pauses or holds.
