Terms and Conditions of Membership


Membership

Lady B Fitness is predominantly a members only club. All memberships must be applied for in advance. All memberships will have an agreed term that will be defined by the membership option chosen on joining.


Use of the Facilities

Before using any equipment you must fill in and sign a PAR-Q and have a supervised induction session. We can refuse access if we deem your health may be adversely affected by use of our facilities. In these circumstances a Doctor's approval letter may be required in order to grant you membership. We advise you to speak to a member of the team regarding any kind of medical condition that may affect your exercise. As a private club we may refuse a membership application without reason.


Payment and charges

Annual Memberships

  • Your membership will run for a period of 12 consecutive calendar months. After this period it will expire unless you pay for a new membership. 
  • The total payment is due on the day of joining, constituting in you becoming a member. This amount is not refundable under any circumstances including non attendance.
  • If there are any changes in the details you provided us you must inform us immediately.
  • Your payment gives you use of the facilities of a Lady B Fitness in accordance with your membership option for a period of 1 year from the date of your induction. To continue after this date you must renew your membership.

Monthly Memberships

  • A pro rata first payment must be made on the day of your induction or before. This amount is non refundable in any circumstances. 
  • A joining fee may also be charged if you are new to the club. This fee is non refundable and will cover induction fees, administration costs and use of the club until your first direct debit is collected.
