||Month to Month
|Total Sales Price (The total cost of your membership including your initial Fees and sales taxes if any)
|Starting this date (mm/dd/yy)
Your membership starts TODAY. It is a monthly agreement, and therefore ends when cancelled in accordance with Section 2 below. You are required to pay your membership fee regardless of how long you choose to maintain your membership. Amounts paid are non-refundable subject to the cancellation rights described in Section 2.
Aquila will provide you with a membership card. You agree to pay $15.00 for each lost membership card.
DEFAULT RETURN PAYMENTS
Should you default on any payment obligation as called for in this Agreement, the club will have the right to declare the entire remaining balance due and payable and you agree to pay allowable interest, and all costs of collection, including but not limited to collection agency fees, court costs, and attorney fees. You also agree to pay $20.00 for returned check or rejected EFT or RCC (defined in Section 1). If you are paying monthly dues by EFT or RCC, Aquila reserves the right to draft via EFT all amounts owed by you including any and all default return fees and service fees subject to appropriate State and Federal Law.
SECTION 1: PERIODIC PAYMENT INFORMATION
You understand that the minimum term of your agreement is 30 days, unless cancelled in accordance with Section 2(A)(i). You want amounts you owe to Aquila under this Agreement (the "Agreement") to be paid through one of the following (select one):
Recurring charges to your debit card (“Debit”);
Recurring debits to your bank account through the ACH (an "EFT"); or
Recurring charges to your credit card account ("RCC")
Your payment of your first month’s dues will be pro-rated based upon the effective date of the Membership Agreement and collected upon joining the Club. All subsequent payments will be due on the 1st of each month thereafter. Your signature below constitutes your authorization and agreement to the following terms for those debit, EFT or RCC charges. Specifically, you authorize Aquila, on a monthly basis, to charge your above listed credit or debit card account, or to initiate an EFT from the account you designated above or any successor or replacement card or account, for the monthly dues rate indicated above, and any other amounts you owe to Aquila under this Agreement, including any fees, and/or taxes. If your card or account expires or is replaced, you agree to promptly notify Aquila of your new card or account. This authorization will remain in effect until this Agreement is cancelled by you or Aquila pursuant to Section 2.
The amounts charged or debited to your account may vary each month from the amount shown above due to a change in the monthly dues, past unpaid dues and fees, increases in applicable taxes, or other fees and charges that you may owe. For EFT charges only, you understand that Aquila will notify you at least 10 days in advance of any EFT debit that will be more than one time the normal monthly debit amount. Upon your written request, Aquila will notify you if the amount of your EFT or RCC will vary by any amount.
If your EFT or RCC is rejected or returned unpaid for any reason, you authorize Aquila to resubmit it for payment one or more subsequent times in the future. If amounts you owe to Aquila are not paid because an EFT debit or RCC does not go through for any reason, your failure to pay those amounts may result in the suspension or termination of your membership, as described in Section 2(B)(i).
You may stop any EFT (debit to your checking or savings account by ACH or debit card) by notifying your financial institution at least 3 days before the scheduled transfer date.
SECTION 2: TERMINATION & CANCELLATION
2(A) YOUR RIGHT TO TERMINATE:
2(A)(i) Five-Day Cancellation:
You, the buyer, may cancel this agreement at any time prior to the midnight of the fifth business day of the health studio after the date of this agreement, excluding Sundays and holidays. To cancel this agreement, mail or deliver a signed and dated notice, or send a telegram which states that you, the buyer, are canceling this agreement, or words of similar effect. The notice shall be sent to Aquila at Federal Fitness Center / CO Aquila, 300 North Los Angeles Street, CA 90012.
2(A)(ii) Cancellation due to Closure or Move of Club Location or Move Your Residence
You are entitled to a cancellation and refund under this Agreement if the Club Location goes out of business, or moves it’s facilities more than 5 driving miles and fails to provide, within 30 days, a facility of equal quality located within 5 driving miles of the Club Location at no additional cost to you. You are also entitled to a cancellation if you move more than 25 miles from the Club Location.
2(A)(iii) Cancellation Due to Death or Physical Inability:
You may cancel this Agreement if you die or become physically unable to avail yourself of a substantial portion of those services which you used from the commencement of the Agreement until the time of disability, with refund of funds paid or accepted in payment of the contract in an amount computed by dividing the contract price by the number of weeks in the contract term and multiplying the result by the number of weeks remaining in the contract term. The buyer or the buyer’s estate seeking relief under this paragraph may be required to provide proof of disability or death. A physical disability sufficient to warrant cancellation of the Agreement by the buyer shall be established if the buyer furnishes to the health studio a certification of such disability by a physician licensed to the extent the diagnosis or treatment is within the physician’s scope of practice. A refund shall be issued within 30 days after receipt of the notice of cancellation made pursuant to this paragraph.
2(A)(iv) 30 Day General cancellation policy:
You may cancel your membership at any time by filling out a cancellation request form and/or stop payroll deduction form (such notice must be given in writing to the Club Location). The notice of cancellation terminates automatically your obligation to any entity to whom Aquila has subrogated or assigned your Agreement. Accordingly, your membership will end 30 days from the date that Aquila receives your notice of cancellation.
Even after your notice of cancellation, you authorize Aquila to charge or debit your account for any amounts you owe under this Agreement up to the date your membership ends and you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement until your membership ends. Notwithstanding any other language in this Agreement, you agree that all rights and obligations of both Aquila and you that are intended to survive cancellation of this Agreement will continue after cancellation and/or the end of your membership, to the extent permitted by law.

Termination is effective upon the date that Aquila mails you a written notification of termination. You are responsible for all fees incurred up to the date of termination.
2(B)(ii) Termination Without Cause
Aquila reserves the right to terminate your membership for any reason not listed above and not inconsistent with or prohibited by law.

The Pre-activity fitness profile form will help us identify possible risk factors that may affect your ability to exercise safely.

2. All members & clients must complete Pre-Activity Fitness Profile Form to participate in exercise assessment and fitness consultation programs and services. If you require medical clearance take the last page titled “To be completed by personal health care provider” to your physician and have him/her complete that page.
|If you opted for a Complimentary Exercise Assessment Testing please read below before your appointment.
1. Wear shorts, T-shirts and rubber shoes for the Fitness Profile test. Do not wear tights or a one piece top because they make it difficult to obtain accurate skinfold measurements.
2. Drink plenty of fluids over the 24-hour period preceding the test.
3. Abstain from food, tobacco, alcohol and caffeine for 3 hours prior to the test.
4. Avoid exercise or vigorous physical exercise the day of the test. It is best if the Fitness Profile test is the first exercise you perform for the day.
