EXTERNAL SERVICE PROVIDERS
Payment of Services
You will need to pay service fees directly to them and we are not responsible for those fees or for any associated costs or refunds.
External Service Claims
Any service they provide is a contract between them and you and we cannot accept any responsibility for a breach of contract or negligence. If you make a claim because of something a service provider has or has not done, your claim should be brought against the provider, not us, whether you have paid them or not. You release us from any claim resulting from an act or omission by a service provider.
Wherever we can, we will help you to resolve issues with providers. We will also make sure that personal trainers in our services have up-to-date qualifications and insurance. Currently we only allow personal trainers from Strong Healthy Women to work in our services.
All agreement fees include goods and services tax (GST). Your fees will change in line with any government GST rate changes, even if you are in your minimum term.
