These are the terms and conditions of Jack Symons trading as Rival Fitness ("we"."us", “my”, or "our"). When you accept these terms and conditions, you understand that a legally binding contract is formed between you and us. Throughout these terms and conditions, where we refer to our "programme", this is the online coaching services we provide to you under these terms and conditions. These terms and conditions start on the date that you accept them and continue until you choose to end your programme.
As part of the programme, you'll receive the following:
If you are receiving any fitness & nutrition coaching, you will additionally receive access to:
The programme will be delivered by a member of the Rival Fitness coaching team, and no other coach, trainer or third, unless a member of Rival Fitness is unavailable due to illness, bereavement, personal emergency, or otherwise.
Your access to the programme is personal to you and so you shouldn’t share access with anyone else. If we think you have failed to keep confidentiality, we may disable any security information (including your passwords and codes).
The programme delivered by Rival Fitness does not cover the running cost of third party, websites, systems, applications etc. which are used in running and delivering your own online coaching systems and services. You understand that these fees are your responsibility as a business owner to manage.
Our working hours are subject to change due to geographical location, however we aim to maintain an up to date schedule on arrival in all locations. Work days are Monday to Friday. When you contact us, we endeavour to respond within 24 working hours, but we can’t always guarantee it, so we’re not liable to you for any delay. Additionally the stated work hours may be altered in the future either due to programme changes, or travel limitations.
Minimum Term & Payments
By accepting these terms, you agree to commit to a "minimum term" of three months. This means that you are legally contracted to pay for the programme for a minimum of three months. At the end of your minimum term, unless you cancel, your programme will automatically renew on a monthly basis ("renewal term").
You can choose to pay your fees for the minimum term all upfront and you consent to Rival Fitness appointing PayPal/GoCardless/Stripe/Outsetta to collect your upfront payment.
Alternatively, you can spread your fees out using Clearpay or Klarna. Where you opt for payment using Clearpay or Klarna, you will be bound by their terms and conditions and privacy policies, which are available on their websites. You must ensure you have read these in full. It is your responsibility to ensure that your payment method is kept up to date and that all monthly payments can be taken from your chosen payment method.
Where you choose to pay the fees in monthly instalments, this isn't a provision of services on a monthly basis and you will still be committed to payment of the fees for the full minimum term.
Where any fees become overdue, and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies, we reserve the right to suspend your programme until payment is made in full, to charge interest at a rate of 5% per annum above the Bank of England base rate, commencing on the due date and continuing until fully paid, whether before or after judgement, and to refer the matter to debt collection and pursue you for our reasonable legal costs.
Under consumer legislation, your programme is made up of goods, which is the digital content provided to you (such as your module access and “Plug & Play” documents), and any videos, information, documents and resources. You can't terminate your programme before the end of the minimum term and claim a refund. By accepting these terms and conditions, you expressly waive your right to the 14-day cooling off period you would usually be entitled to under consumer legislation.
Money back guarantee
We offer a 90-day money-back guarantee, which is entirely commitment dependent. If you have followed all coaching advice, modules, and implemented all applicable resources, and in the case you are also receiving fitness & nutrition advice, you have followed all training, nutrition and supplement advice. As well as checking in with a full update at every check-in date in the full minimum term of three months to a level deemed appropriate by us, and you have not built any coaching systems, or if applicable you have not seen any changes in your metrics (i.e. change in BMI, changes in body fat percentage, muscle mass, reduction or gain in weight in the direction in line with the goals agreed upon commencement of training), we agree to refund you your fees for the minimum term and you're entitled to cancel the programme without any further liability to us. Please do get in touch with us if you'd like to check whether you're eligible for a refund. Please note that any decision as to whether a refund will be given is completely at our discretion and our decisions are final.
As explained above, you can't cancel the programme during the minimum term, but you can stop the programme automatically renewing at the end of the minimum term by giving us at least 1 months' written notice. We will need to receive your notice before the third month of the minimum term starts. This also applies to any renewal term, where we will need at least 1 months' written notice.
All payments due during the notice period will be payable in full and you'll still receive the benefits of the programme. Once the notice period ends, your programme and these terms and conditions will automatically end.
Notice of cancellation is not prorated, and therefore as stated above, a notice of cancellation is essentially notifying us that the following payment within the notice period will be your final full payment
Without affecting any other right or remedy available, we're permitted to terminate your programme and these terms and conditions immediately by giving you written notice if any fees for your programme are overdue by at least [30 days] (despite us requesting payment), or if you breach these terms and conditions and you don't fix the breach within 30 days of us asking you to. Where we terminate your programme, no refunds will be provided.
