This Agreement is made between the Client and Training Mate for a MATE Membership at Training Mate’s studio.
Your home studio is defined as the studio where you attend the majority (over 50%) of your classes. In the event that you start attending the majority (over 50%) of your classes at another Training Mate location (not your location of purchase), your original home studio has the right to transfer your membership to the location where you are taking the majority (over 50%) of your classes. Your membership will then be billed at the full rate ($259 per month) at the new location and this will be considered your new home studio, unless otherwise discussed with a manager. This applies to all memberships, including Foundation Memberships.
Client’s membership will begin on the Contract Start Date and will remain in place for a minimum three (3) months. The membership will automatically renew unless cancelled by Client or Training Mate, with notification in writing to your home studio email. The written cancellation notice must be received by Training Mate at least fourteen (14) days before the Client’s next billing date.
In the event Client requests a suspension of his/her Membership, the requests must be made in writing and sent to your home studio email. The written suspension notice must be received by Training Mate at least fourteen (14) days before the Client’s requested suspension date. Duration of the suspension will be for a minimum of one (1) month and maximum of three (3) months.
Suspensions cannot be made within three (3) months of your membership start date.
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-("Training Mate is defined to include, as applicable, Training Mate LLC, Training Mate Four LLC, and any Training Mate franchise.")-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.

I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, agree to indemnify and hold harmless Training Mate, their principals, agents, employees, volunteers, and anyone acting on their behalf of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating to them. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of Training Mate, their principals, agents, employees, volunteers, and/or anyone acting on their behalf, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation at any Training Mate.
