MEMBERSHIP ADD-ON

When you add one or more “Add-On” membership(s) to a membership, one member is financially responsible for all Add-On members’ dues. If the member responsible for paying the Add-On membership dues cancels his or her membership, then Bodybuzz may, in its sole discretion, either cancel the Add-On membership(s) and/or require the Add-On member(s) to pay his or her own dues, which may be changed to the individual membership rate in effect at the time of the cancellation.

Certain Add-On memberships (such as the DUO program) require all members to attend all training sessions together. If any member does not show up for a scheduled session, such member is not entitled to a make-up session.

Substituting a person for the regular DUO member is permitted as long as that individual completes the Bodybuzz Liability Waiver.

Every member must complete the Bodybuzz Liability Waiver.

You must be a current employee of a participating company and eligible under the company’s guidelines to enroll under a corporate membership program. By enrolling under a corporate membership program, you grant Bodybuzz the right to verify your eligibility under the company’s guidelines (including the right to verify your employment with the company as necessary). In the event you are not currently employed or cease being a current employee of a participating company, Bodybuzz reserves the right to immediately terminate your membership and/or require you to pay the full regular price of any initiation fees, annual fees, and monthly dues.

MEMBERSHIP PAYMENTS

I authorize Bodybuzz, on the scheduled payment dates, or within 2 business days after such dates, to charge my credit card account, or to initiate an EFT from the account I designated or any successor or replacement card or account, for any membership payment when due. If my card or account expires or is replaced, I agree to notify Bodybuzz promptly of my new card or account.

  3. If my EFT or CC is rejected or returned unpaid for any reason, I authorize Bodybuzz to resubmit it for payment one or more subsequent times in the future. If amounts I owe to Bodybuzz are not paid because an EFT debit or CC does not go through, for any reason my failure to pay those amounts may result in the suspension or termination of my membership.
  4. I may stop any EFT (a debit to my checking or savings account by ACH or debit card) by notifying the financial institutio

If you do not cancel within this allotted time period or check in by the start of class, you will be considered as having “missed” your booked class. If you miss a class or cancel within twelve hours of the class start time you will not be entitled to a refund. Please avoid entering a class late or leaving a class early, as this is disruptive to other customers’ experience.

MERCHANDISE RETURNS
