Client, on behalf of client, his or her heirs, assigns and next of kin, waives any claims against and releases CrossFit GongFu (as well as any of its owners, employees, or other authorized agents, including independent contractors) from any and all liability, claims and / or causes of action that client may have for injuries or other damages of any kind, including but not limited to punitive damages, arising out of participation in CrossFit GongFu activities, including, but not limited to the personal training / nutritional programs and the physical activities.
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. This is not an agreement for a specific number of classes, seminars, or coaching lessons during the agreed upon period.
Client’s right to cancel: The client may not terminate or cancel the agreement except as follows: (1) if by reason of death or disability, client is unable to receive all CrossFit GongFu services for which client has contracted, client and client’s estate shall be relieved from the obligation of making payment for services other than those received or obligated prior to death or the onset of disability (subject to signed doctor’s note regarding the nature of the disability); and (2) in the event the client moves further than 25 miles from CrossFit GongFu, client may terminate this agreement by supplying proof of new residence. If client has prepaid any sum for services, so much of such sum as has been allocated to services client has not taken shall be refunded.
Client’s right to hold: The client may, for periods of two weeks or longer, “put on hold” the agreement. The request to place the agreement on hold must be submitted 2 weeks 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.
Client’s default: Client shall be deemed in default of this agreement upon the failure to comply with any of the terms and conditions of the agreement, including, but not limited to, the obligation to make any payment as and when due. Upon default, CrossFit GongFu shall have all rights and remedies available, including termination of this agreement and institution of an action for all applicable damages. If CrossFit GongFu delays or refrains from exercising any rights under this agreement, CrossFit GongFu does not waive, nor will CrossFit GongFu lose those rights. If CrossFit GongFu accepts late or partial payments from the buyer, CrossFit GongFu does not waive the right to receive full and timely payments and other charges due under this agreement.
Successors and assigns: Client agrees that all terms and conditions of this agreement shall be binding upon the heirs, personal representatives, lawful successors, and assigns of client, and anyone claiming by or through client.
Enforceability: The parties agree that if any provision or portion of this agreement is declared void and unenforceable, such provision or portion of a provision shall be deemed severed from this agreement, which shall otherwise remain in full force and effect. However, client specifically agrees all the terms and conditions are to be enforced and client specifically waives any statute or other right of any type, which would invalidate the enforceability of any provision or portion of a provision of this agreement.
Legal fees: In the event either party finds it necessary to commerce litigation or other court action to enforce the terms and conditions of this agreement, the prevailing party in such litigation or court action shall be entitled to receive their actual lawyer’s fees incurred, together with court costs, and other charges from the other party as a part of any ruling or judgment.
