Membership Terms & Conditions
While You Are In The Club
We endeavour to create a pleasant and enjoyable experience for you every single visit. To ensure this we ask our members to adhere to the guidelines, rules and regulations of the club explained on your membership application. If at any time you have suggestions or enquiries, do not hesitate to contact any of our staff, alternatively, you can choose to leave us a note in the suggestion box located on the gym floor and changing rooms.
70% of all visits must be made at your Home Club. Use of another Club will be restricted to 30% of visits. You may transfer to another Club should you wish to make that Club your Home Club, with the appropriate adjustment to membership fees.
You may suspend your membership for a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of eight weeks for a 12 month membership. A suspension fee applies. In cases of exceptional medical circumstances, longer suspensions may be granted on presentation of a medical certificate. You must advise us of your intention to suspend prior to your absence and complete the relevant paperwork. A membership “action form” can be found at Customer Service. Suspension time will be added on to your term membership, or your debit amount will decrease for that fortnight.
Please note Direct Debit memberships are ongoing. This means that debits will not automatically stop when the minimum term has lapsed. Direct debit members are required to give 30 days notice in writing when intending to cancel. Cancellation appointments can be made via Customer Service. Direct debit memberships will continue until we receive member notification.
Should you wish to cancel your membership prior to the minimum subscription period for any personal reason, including matters of relocation or change of mind (but excluding a breach by the Club of its obligations to you under your Membership Agreement or Australian Consumer Law), unless the cancellation is due to a certified medical condition that precludes any form of regular exercise offered by the Club now or in the future, you agree to have debited from your credit card/account a cancellation fee of:
(a) the $99 administration fee which has been waived by the Club in consideration of you entering into this Membership; and
(b) the $10 per fortnight discount granted to you in consideration of you entering into this Membership for the number of fortnights which have passed prior to the termination.
Transfer of Membership
Term Memberships are transferable for a fee of $150. Direct debit memberships may be transferred free of charge after the minimum term has been completed.
All members and their guests use the club at their own risk. The club cannot accept responsibility for damage or injury through use of any facility. The club is not responsible for any lost or stolen items or damage to property and vehicles.
Members are not eligible for any refund of money which has been paid to the Club due to any change of mind. Any right to a refund will be limited to the right to terminate the Membership Agreement pursuant to its terms or Australian Consumer Law. Members should discuss any concerns with the manager of the relevant Club.
