Personal Training
All personal training sessions require a full 24 hours notice for cancelation to avoid incurring the cost of the session. If a member cancels a session with less than 24 hours notice, the full cost of the session will be charged.

Monthly Memberships
A Monthly Membership is a contractual agreement allowing us, CFB, to automatically withdraw membership dues for the agreed upon duration by you, the client. There will be no refunds given.

Should you, the client, choose not to complete your contract, it is your FULL responsibility to fulfill your financial obligations. You will have two options:

Rules on Membership
All membership options entitle the member to train at either 2 times (2) or an unlimited number of classes per week, contingent on membership type and given that all payments are current. Clients will be grandfathered in to their rate if they wish to renew beyond their initial contract unless otherwise noted by the most current terms and conditions.
All members must fulfill their financial obligations of their contract. Written notice is required if you choose not to renew with CFB. In other words, if your contract is coming due on November 30th, 2013 and you wish to cancel your membership, you will need to provide written notice to CFB by November 20th, 2013 informing them of your decision. If you do not inform CFB of any membership changes 10 days prior, your contract will AUTO RENEW at the existing contractual agreement. It is your sole responsibility to remember when your contract expires. You can cancel stop the renewal of your own membership through the website or app. If this is the case, written notice is not required.

Refund Policy
There are no refunds to any of our products and services…ever (that is unless we made a billing error).

Exceptions
These are at the sole discretion of the CrossFit Bytown owner, which will be reviewed only if provided in writing.

Delinquent Accounts
All members under the Monthly Membership plan will be enrolled in an automatic payment plan. If the client’s account balance cannot cover the amount of the membership dues, the client will have seven (7) days to make their late payment in full without paying a re-initiation fee. If the client has not paid his or her dues by the said deadline, the membership will be suspended and the client will be subject to a $50 re-initiation fee to reactivate the membership in addition to paying that month’s fees.
To cover our charges there will be a $25 NSF/Decline charge billed to the member should their payment method not be approved. This charge will be billed for each time the payment is attempted.

Gym Etiquette
The CrossFit Bytown team works hard to provide a space for members to have a top notch training facility. CrossFit members pay for and deserve ongoing and consistent enjoyment of the facility. We have high standards and values that we expect our staff and members to comply with. Our Values are:


Quality: Combined, our coaches have over 20 years of experience, providing our clients with the best training possible.
Safety: All movements are executed in a safe and precise manner.
Respect: Respect your coaches, your peers, the equipment and facility. When the coach is talking please be quiet.
Support: Encourage each other to succeed. There is give and there is take.
Fun: Do not take yourself too seriously. This is our fun and always will be.
Development: CrossFit is as much mental strength as it is physical, and through this we develop into our best selves.

Please be on time for class, and respect the coaches and class structure. You may not stop in and train at your own leisure. Group Classes, are just that-Group Classes. If you wish to work on a technique or skills, please review the CFB schedule for Classes marked “Open Gym”.

CrossFit Bytown has provided cubby areas for you to place your belongings in. Please note that CrossFit Bytown is not liable for broken or missing belongings. It is mandatory to place all belongings into a cubby, as items left on the floor is prohibited due to safety concerns and space. If you do not feel comfortable leaving your valuables in a cubby during class, please leave them at home. Personal belongings left behind will be kept for seven (7) days in the lost and found.
