Our Services may utilize the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) in assessing the safety of, or possible risks of, exercising for you based on your answers. This assessment requires that all information provided by you is true, complete and correct and further, requires that you not omit any relevant information regardless of whether we have asked about such information. Furthermore, in becoming a user of the Services, you affirm that a physician has specifically approved your use of the Services, or that all of the following statements are true:

  • no physician has ever informed you that you have a heart condition or that you should only do physical activities recommended by a physician;

BEFORE USING OUR SERVICES, YOU SHOULD CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL HEALTHCARE PROVIDER. THE USE OF ANY INFORMATION OR PROGRAMS PROVIDED ON THE SERVICES IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. IF YOU THINK YOU MAY HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, CALL YOUR DOCTOR OR 911 IMMEDIATELY.

IF AT ANYTIME DURING YOUR EXERCISE WORKOUT YOU DO NOT FEEL WELL, MAKE SURE YOU STOP IMMEDIATELY AND SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE OF A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL IF REQUIRED.

THE CONTENT AVAILABLE VIA THE SERVICES IS PROVIDED WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT NEITHER THE COMPANY NOR ITS AFFILIATES OR USERS ARE ENGAGED IN RENDERING MEDICAL, COUNSELING, LEGAL, OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL SERVICES OR ADVICE. SUCH CONTENT IS INTENDED SOLELY AS A GENERAL EDUCATIONAL AID. IT IS NOT INTENDED AS MEDICAL OR HEALTHCARE ADVICE, OR TO BE USED FOR MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT, FOR ANY INDIVIDUAL PROBLEM. IT IS ALSO NOT INTENDED AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR PROFESSIONAL ADVICE AND SERVICES FROM A QUALIFIED HEALTHCARE PROVIDER FAMILIAR WITH YOUR UNIQUE FACTS. NOTHING STATED OR POSTED ON THIS SITE OR AVAILABLE THROUGH ANY SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE, AND MUST NOT BE TAKEN TO BE, THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE. OUR RECOMMENDED WORKOUT PLANS AND EXERCISES, EVEN IF THEY ARE TAILORED TO INDIVIDUAL USERS, SHOULD NOT BE MISCONSTRUED AS MEDICAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSES OR TREATMENT. ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF YOUR PHYSICIAN OR OTHER QUALIFIED HEALTHCARE PROVIDER REGARDING ANY MEDICAL CONDITION AND BEFORE STARTING ANY NEW TREATMENT.

Neither the Company nor any of its trainers or Affiliates will be liable for any physical or mental injury or illness that may result, whether directly or indirectly, from any of our recommended workout plans or exercises. While we may provide guidelines such as written descriptions, pictures, or videos describing how to perform specific exercises or activities, you assume sole responsibility for performing those exercises or activities with proper form, as risk of injury or illness increases with improper form. We encourage you to seek multiple sources of information regarding how to perform each exercise correctly and to consider consulting with a qualified coach, instructor, personal trainer, or physical therapist, especially if you are new to any of the forms of training or activity you seek to perform.

2. Modification of terms of use and/or services

If the Company amends this Terms of Use, it will update this posting on the Website and specify the effective date of the new version of the Terms of Use. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of a new version of the Terms of Use shall constitute your acceptance of any such amendments. Accordingly, you should check to see if a new version of the Terms of Use has been posted each time you use the Services. If the amended Terms of Use are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Services.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND THE COMPANY AND THAT ABSENT SUCH DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS TERMS OF USE AND YOUR ACCESS TO THE WEBSITES AND SERVICES WOULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT. In some jurisdictions, limitations of liability are not permitted. In such jurisdictions, some of the foregoing limitations may not apply to you.

15. Indemnification

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors, officers, employees, agents, and affiliates, from and against any and all liability, damages, losses, claims, expenses of any kind (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) directly or indirectly related to (1) your breach of the Terms of Use; (2) the User Content you submit, post, or transmit through the Services; or (3) your use of the Services.

16. Termination and survival

Either party may terminate the Terms of Use for any or no cause, at any time. After termination, you agree that you shall no longer access or utilize the Services. The provisions of this Terms of Use which by their intent or meaning are intended to survive such termination, including without limitation the provisions relating to disclaimer of warranties, limitations of liability, indemnification and dispute resolution shall survive the any termination of this Terms of Use and any termination of your use of or subscription to the Services and shall continue to apply indefinitely.

17. Severability

If any provision of the Terms of Use is found by a court or other binding authority to be invalid, you agree that every attempt shall be made to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in that provision, and the remaining provisions contained in the Terms of Use shall continue in full force and effect.

18. Dispute resolution

You and Company agree to resolve any disputes between us in accordance with this Section 18. If you believe that Company has not adhered to the Terms of Use or you have any dispute with Company, please contact Company using the contact information provided below. We will do our best to address your concerns and we will attempt to resolve any disputes with you amicably.

Except as provided herein, you and Company agree that we will resolve any disputes between us that we cannot resolve as provided above through binding and final arbitration instead of through court proceedings. All such controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between you and Company relating to the Websites, the Services or this Terms of Use (each a “Claim”) shall be submitted for binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an available alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) and the rules of such provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration. The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs, documents, or other evidence submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies.

For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the AAA (or ADR Provider, if applicable), you and Company must abide by the following rules: (a) the arbitration will be conducted solely based on written submissions; and (b) the arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA (or ADR Provider, if applicable) rules, and the hearing (if any) will be held in the state of Delaware.

If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Company will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator’s fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.

This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. You and Company also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, you and Company retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with this Terms of Use, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in this Terms of Use.

Neither you nor Company may act as a class representative or private attorney general, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only your and/or Company’s individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.

If any provision of this Section 18 is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section 18 shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of this Section 18 will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Terms of Use. This Section 18 will survive the termination of this Terms of Use or your relationship with Company.

THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION OR TO HAVE A TRIAL BY JURY, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM AND THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA RULES OR THE RULES OF AN ADR PROVIDER.

19. Applicable law and venue

This Terms of Use and the resolution of any dispute related to this Terms of Use will be governed and interpreted by and under the laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to any conflicts of laws principles that require the application of the law of a different state. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement. Any dispute relating in any way to the Services or this Terms of Use will be adjudicated in any state or federal court in the state of Delaware.

Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, the enforceability of Section 18 entitled “Dispute Resolution” shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C., Secs. 1-16).
