GRIT FITNESS MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT, WAIVER OF CLAIMS AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY
It is agreed by and between GRIT Fitness, LLC and you, the undersigned BUYER (individually, if you are the buyer, and/or as agent or guardian of the Buyer or responsible party), that you are purchasing a membership (the “Membership”) from GRIT Fitness according to the terms detail within this MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT and the current MEMBERSHIP POLICIES AND CLUB RULES AND REGULATIONS (the “Agreement”).
Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
The Monthly Dues Membership will be billed each month through Electronic Funds Transfer(EFT*). In addition to the grounds for termination as provided herein, Buyer may terminate the Monthly Dues Membership at any time by giving GRIT Fitness a 30-day written notice (e.g. email). After the receipt of the termination notice, Buyer will be billed for 1 month immediately. Any prepaid dues or dues processed prior to the effective date of cancellation are non-refundable. *EFT Request. Buyer (individually and as agent or guardian of Buyer) hereby authorizes GRIT Fitness to make periodic charges to or withdrawals from the account used to pay the initial payment described above or any replacement account hereafter designated for payment of any sums GRIT Fitness under this Agreement, including but not limited to Buyer’s balance due if not paid by the due date, or for any other use by Buyer of GRIT Fitness facilities or services (the EFT), as follows: Buyer shall be billed on the first of each month(the “Billing Date” as appropriate), and the pro rated portion of the current month at time of sign up. If signed above, GRIT Fitness will also debit the balance due as indicated above on the date of the first monthly dues debit. In the event sufficient funds are not available in Buyer’s account or debits are otherwise not accepted, GRIT Fitness may resubmit the charge. If the re-submittal is returned uncollected, the rejected amount plus a $10.00 service charge may be added to Buyer’s next regularly scheduled debit. Buyer understands that Buyer is entitled to notice of all varying charges and withdrawals under the EFT, but Buyer waives the right to receive prior notice for charges or withdrawals made with respect to any uncollected monthly dues payments or portions of the balance due described above and the corresponding service charges, both of which Buyer agrees are not varying charges or withdrawals. Buyer understands that Buyer is in full control of Buyer’s payment and that this EFT Request will remain in effect until GRIT Fitness receives written notice of termination of this Agreement and has a reasonable opportunity to act on that notice. If Buyer decides to change your billing information, a 30-day notice is required. Buyer may timely notify the financial institution in control of Buyer’s account to terminate the EFT Request, but such notification will not otherwise affect this Agreement and Buyer’s obligations herein. If at any time one of the family members associated with this Agreement cancels or freezes, monthly dues may be adjusted according to the current membership rates. Buyer acknowledges that the origination of the Automated Clearing House transactions to Buyer’s account must comply with the provisions of US Law.
