Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions form part of your agreement with dbPT.
On joining dbPT and payment of your membership will constitute acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
Your Trainers are fully qualified personal trainers (accredited on the Register of Exercise Professionals as at least Level 3).
3. Trainers Obligations
The Trainers will use their skills and knowledge to design a safe programme of exercise that will take into account your lifestyle, personal goals, fitness levels and medical history. The Trainers will provide the coaching, supervision, advice and support that you will need to achieve your goals.
You understand that the results of any fitness programme cannot be guaranteed. Your progress depends on your own motivation and dedication in and outside of the sessions. In particular, you acknowledge that individual results may vary and no particular result is guaranteed by your Trainers.
All Client information will be kept strictly private and confidential.
4. Client’s Obligations
You are required to wear appropriate clothing and footwear, and wipe down equipment after use.
You are required to complete a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (a “PARQ”) before training in the Studio or undertaking your first Boot Camp Session. dbPT/Trainers may require a letter of ‘medical clearance’ from your GP. Please be aware that your GP may charge for providing this letter.
You understand and agree that it is your responsibility to inform dbPT/Trainers of any conditions or changes to your health, now and ongoing, which might affect your ability to exercise safely and with minimal risk of injury.
dbPT Fitness Studio is located within a residential area so we respectfully ask our Clients to be mindful of this and to park either on our driveway, on London Road or to walk to the Studio where possible. Please also be considerate to our neighbours and keep noise levels to a minimum particularly outside of normal working hours.
If dbPT/Trainers require further medical information from a practitioner, you must provide such details.
It is understood by the Client that no exercise programme is without inherent risks regardless of the care taken by dbPT/Trainers, and that the Client’s personal safety cannot be guaranteed by dbPT/Trainers. The Client realises that when participating in exercise, particularly ones that induce cardiovascular stress, there is a slight chance of serious injury. The Client also understands that engaging in physical exercise sometimes results in minor injuries, such as bruises, strains and sprains, and less frequent but more serious injuries. dbPT/Trainers will not be held liable for any injury arising as a result of the Client’s participation in physical exercise activities or caused by third parties whilst on dbPT premises.
dbPT/Trainers cannot be held liable in any way for undeclared or unknown medical conditions.
5. Online Training
All terms and conditions contained herein apply to dbPT’s online training service.
A training App is provided as part of the online package and an internet connection is required to effectively use the App to its full potential. dbPT cannot be held responsible for the poor performance of third party internet supply resulting in inadequate functionality of the App.
Payment of membership fees is made through the online PayPal subscription facility on the dbPT website. The monthly membership fee is £50.00 to be paid in advance. An automatic payment will be debited from the designated PayPal account on a monthly basis and the Client will be notified when payments have been taken.
Online training packages are for a minimum period of three months, paid in the manner described above and at a cost of £50.00 per month.
There are no joining fees.
Membership can be cancelled by giving dbPT one month’s notice in writing (email notification is acceptable) from the date of the last payment made to dbPT.
Online training packages can be cancelled after the mandatory three month period / after the third payment has been made.
Please note that access to your personal training App will be deactivated and the service withdrawn shortly after notification of cancellation. dbPT reserve the right to deactivate a training App immediately if the requisite notice period has not been adhered to, i.e. the subscription is cancelled prior to the final payment being made.
8. Changes to studio opening hours
dbPT reserves the right to close the studio for a period of up to 10 consecutive days annually in relation to family commitments; operate reduced hours over national holiday periods and such other times as may be necessary. Reasonable notice of such closures will be given to members by way of a written notice displayed in the studio and via messaging on the training App. No partial refunds of membership subscriptions will be given for closures described in this clause 8.
9. Health and Safety
Your Trainers have completed and hold a current certificate for First Aid at Work approved by the Health and Safety Executive.
Your Trainers have £10 million combined liability insurance cover.
This Liability section applies only to the extent permitted by law.
dbPT/Trainers do not accept liability (except as set out below) for any errors and omissions and reserve the right to change information, specifications and descriptions of listed packages and services. dbPT/Trainers will use their reasonable effort to correct errors and omissions as quickly as practicable after being notified of them.
dbPT/Trainers do not accept any liability whatsoever for any indirect loss, consequential loss, loss of data, loss of income or profit, loss or damage to property and/or loss from claims of third parties arising out of the use of dbPT’s website, App or services purchased from dbPT/Trainers or any other damage howsoever caused.
