Make-up sessions may be scheduled as long as your account is in good standing along with advanced notice that you are going to miss a session. If you do not communicate with us 24 hours prior to not showing up for a session, you will not be allowed to schedule a make-up session. Make-up sessions must be scheduled at an appropriate time at our facility at least 24 hours in advance. All make-up classes will be conducted at our facility. Make-up sessions must be scheduled within 30 days and are not “free sessions” for next month.

Training sessions purchased as part of a membership will not expire as long as the account is in good standing. If the membership expires, the purchased training sessions will expire within the month. Any packages that have not yet been purchased will be charged at the non-member rate. Contracts may be canceled for 50% of the remaining contract.

Late payments of 10% will be added on contracts that are overdue by more than 3 days.

Hoops College reserves the right to deny service for overdue accounts even if some sessions have been paid for.

In consideration of my being able to participate with Hoops College, I understand that I must purchase a single or package of training session(s) and must read, agree to and sign this agreement where I assume the risks for participation, waive of liability, and personal training policies and procedures.

I understand that the program is voluntary and that Hoops College staff will develop and guide me through my program. I will be required to undergo an evaluation to assess my present level. I represent that I will disclose any health history accurately and completely including disclosure of any prescribed medications I am taking and any exercise or diet limitations I am aware of or have been informed of by my doctor. During the program if my medications, condition, or medical limitations should change, I will notify Hoops College. I understand that it is recommended that I have a yearly physical or more frequent physical examination and consultation with my physician as to physical activity and diet so I am aware of what is appropriate for me. I acknowledge that I have either had a physical exam and have been given my physician’s permission to participate or I have decided to participate without approval of my physician.

I understand that Hoops College staff are not physicians and cannot replace the advice and expertise of a physician.

I understand that I have the complete right to stop or decrease exercise at any time during a session and that it is my obligation to inform the Hoops College staff of any symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath or chest discomfort.

I realize that participation in the program including but not limited to exercising, use of exercise equipment and strenuous exertion (strength training) all of which increase heart rate and body temperature.
I understand that exercise involves certain risks, including but not limited to, serious neck and spinal injuries resulting in complete or partial paralysis, heart attack, stroke or even death. Also, injuries could occur to bones, joints or muscles. Slips, falls, and unintended loss of balance could result in muscular, neurological, orthopedic or other bodily injury. I understand that part of the risk involved in undertaking any activity or program is relative to my own state of fitness or health (physical, mental, or emotional) and to the awareness, care and skill which I conduct myself in that activity or program.

Knowing the material risks and appreciating, knowing and reasonably anticipating that other injuries are a possibility, I hereby expressly assume all of the delineated risks of injury, all other possible risk of injury, and even risk of possible death, which could occur by reason of my participation.

I do hereby waive, release and forever discharge to the gym, Hoops College, LLC. from any and all responsibilities or liability for any present and future injuries or damages resulting or arising from my participation in any activities including but not limited to exercise, personal training or use of the equipment including any injuries and damages caused by the negligent act or omission of any of those persons or entities mentioned above.
