                       ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS                                                                     

DEFAULT AND LATE PAYMENTS: Should you default on any payment obligation as called for in this agreement, the STUDIO will have the right to declare the entire remaining balance due and payable and you agree to pay allowable interest, and all costs of collection, including but not limited to collection agency fees, court costs, and attorney fees. A default occurs when any payment due under this agreement is more than ten days late. 


In conjunction with the booking software, a second attempt will be made on the card or account and no further bookings will be able to be made until the arrears amount is cleared.

NO SHOW WITHOUT CANCELLATION: If you have booked a class and are unable to attend but have not notified staff or canceled the booking, a $10 fee will be charged to your account. This is due to waitlists on classes and clients that would be able to take the booked space had the booking been cancelled.

GOODS AND SERVICES TAX: Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, you understand and agree that the amount of your monthly membership dues is based on current sales tax rates and to the extent such rates should increase during your membership, the STUDIO has the right to increase your monthly membership dues by the amount of such increase. If you have requested the privilege of paying your monthly dues by pre-authorised electronic funds transfer, the monthly amount so transferred will be adjusted to reflect any increase in the sales tax rate.

RIGHT TO CHANGE DESIGNATED BILLING COMPANY: The STUDIO hereby reserves the right to change the Designated Billing Company at their discretion and without warning. If such a change is made, the full terms and conditions of this agreement will continue to apply and you agree to authorise the new Designated Billing Company to continue drafting your account.

MEMBERSHIP FREEZE POLICY: If you have a term membership (i.e. 12-month, etc.) you may freeze time on your membership for up to 1 month for 12 month memberships and 2 weeks for 6 month memberships. Freezing time on your membership stops your membership payments for that time and transfers it onto the end of your membership. You are still liable for your full payment schedule. Once you resume any usage of the STUDIO or at the end of the 1 month, or 2 weeks allotted per membership, the freeze will terminate. Time of any freeze will be credited to the end of your membership’s original term.

  • Client training services provided in this facility may be provided either by employees of the STUDIO or by independent contractors operating their own business who are retained by the STUDIO.
    Regardless, all payments for any services are to be made to the STUDIO, who will pay the instructors as the services are provided.
  • It is MEMBER’s responsibility to wipe down all equipment after each use and put away the equipment they use.
  • MEMBER is required to use the safety features of the equipment. If you are unsure of how to use a machine, you should obtain instructions from the staff or personal trainers.

The term of membership is on hold and recommences on return to the studio. (e.g. if there is 6 months remaining on the membership when the hold commences, then on return to the studio, there will still be 6 months until the end of the contract).
