You agree that the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflict of laws rules, shall exclusively govern any dispute relating to these Terms and/or the Services.

Except for claims that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is invalid, unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable; any claim for public injunctive relief, or actions seeking relief in any state or federal court for disputes related to a violation or possible violation of FITNESS SF’s intellectual property rights, all disputes whether presently in existence or based on acts or omissions in the past or in the future, will be resolved exclusively and finally by binding arbitration, rather than in court by a judge or jury in accordance with these Terms.
Any arbitration between you and us, to the extent necessary, will be conducted in Marin County, California, and you waive any right to claim that such location is an inconvenient forum. You agree not to sue us or bring arbitration in any other forum. The arbitration will be conducted in English. A single independent and impartial arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Both you and we agree to comply with the following rules, which are intended to streamline the dispute resolution process and reduce the costs and burdens for everyone involved: (i) the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (ii) the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and (ii) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrator will issue his or her decision within 120 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit for an additional 30 days in the interests of justice. All arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award. The award of the arbitrator will be in writing and will include a statement describing the reasons for the disposition of any claim.
You also acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute with us arising out of or relating to your use of the Services:
• You are giving up your right to have a trial by jury;

• You must file any claim within one (1) year after such claim arose or it is forever barred.
If this arbitration provision is found to be null and void, then all disputes arising under these Terms will be subject to the jurisdiction of the state courts of Marin County, California, and the federal courts of San Francisco, California, and you agree to personal jurisdiction in those courts and waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue.

The following terms and conditions (these “Personal Training Terms”) apply to all personal training and small group training sessions originally purchased at any participating FITNESS SF location or through the Services (each, a “Session”). By purchasing, using, accepting or retaining a Session, you agree to these Personal Training Terms. FITNESS SF reserves the right to change, amend or terminate these Personal Training Terms or its personal training offerings, in its sole discretion, at any time with or without notice or liability to you.
A FITNESS SF member that has made an appointment for a Session may cancel or change the time of the Session provided that a minimum of 24-hours’ prior notice is given. You can make these changes via the Training tab in your account to the Services, or by contacting your trainer directly. Members will be charged for the full cost of the session on any late cancellations or no-show appointments, and all Session sales are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Payment for Sessions is required to be made by the member on or before the date of the Session. If a member has no Session inventory, charges for late cancellations or no show appointments for Sessions will be charged to the member’s credit card on file with FITNESS SF. In addition, charges for Sessions which are used by a member but not otherwise paid for will be charged to the member’s credit card on the day the Session is used.
FITNESS SF may offer discounts on Sessions to members who purchase a package of Sessions. These discounts only apply to the number of Sessions purchased as a group. Any further or additional Sessions will be charged at the regular rate then in effect for individual Sessions.
You may obtain information on your balance of Sessions in the Training tab in your account to the Services or at any FITNESS SF Fitness Club. Sessions may not be redeemed for cash.
All sales are final. Sessions expire six months from the date of purchase.
We offer a free one day trial of our membership for all local residents of the Bay Area, which residence must be documented by providing valid identification, and subject to other restrictions specified when you sign up for the offer (each, a “Free Trial”). In order to sign up for a Free Trial, you may need to provide us certain contact information and your preferred payment method.
The following terms and conditions (these “Gift Card Terms”) apply to any FITNESS SF gift card originally purchased through the Services or at any participating FITNESS SF location (each a “Gift Card”). By purchasing, accepting, retaining or using a Gift Card, you agree to these Gift Card Terms. FITNESS SF reserves the right to change, amend or terminate these Gift Card Terms or its Gift Card offerings, in its sole discretion, at any time with or without notice or liability to you. Your use of the FITNESS SF Gift Card is limited to the current dollar value held on the card. You may obtain your balance by presenting your Gift Card at any FITNESS SF location. Except to the extent required by applicable law, Gift Cards may not be redeemed for cash.
You may use the Gift Card only to purchase eligible merchandise and pay for eligible goods and services at any FITNESS SF location (excluding cafes, juice bars, etc.), or if available, through the Services. You may not return, resell or use any Gift Card for any unauthorized advertising, marketing, sweepstakes or other promotional purposes. The Gift Card has no expiration date, service charges or dormancy fees. These Gift Card Terms do not apply to gift cards or other stored value cards that are given away for free or distributed as a reward, incentive, or as part of a marketing or promotional program (“Promotional Cards”). Promotional Cards may have different terms and expiration dates, to the extent permitted by applicable law. See below for terms and conditions applicable to Promotional Cards. Protect your Gift Card as if it were cash and safeguard it from unauthorized use. Except where required by applicable law, FITNESS SF is not responsible for and will not replace Gift Cards if lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed. FITNESS SF reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to suspend or terminate use of any Gift Card if we suspect any fraud or misuse of a Gift Card. FITNESS SF may cancel the Gift Card at any time, without notice or liability to you. The consideration paid for the Gift Card, including any unredeemed balances, is the property of FITNESS SF.
TO MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, FITNESS SF MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE GIFT CARDS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

IN THE EVENT A GIFT CARD IS NOT FUNCTIONAL, YOUR SOLE REMEDY AND FITNESS SF’S SOLE LIABILITY SHALL BE THE REPLACEMENT OF THE FITNESS SF GIFT CARD AT ITS THEN-CURRENT VALUE.
If any one or more of the provisions of these Gift Card Terms shall be for any reason whatsoever held invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such provisions shall be deemed severable from the remaining provisions and shall in no way affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions of these Additional Terms for Gift Cards.
