Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to services provided by Triangle Theory or this waiver or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in Los Angeles County, before one arbitrator.

The arbitrator may, in the Award, allocate all or part of the costs of the arbitration, including the fees of the arbitrator and the reasonable attorneys’ fees of the prevailing party.

Dietary recommendations:

Triangle Theory‘s dietary recommendations are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Triangle Theory’s management and staff are not doctors, nutritionists, or any other type of health care professional.  Dietary recommendations are intended to help the Client reach his/her program goals as communicated by the Client to Triangle Theory. Dietary recommendations are designed and intended for persons in good health with no aggravating medical or physical problems. Client therefore accepts dietary recommendations at Client’s own risk.

Cancellation and Policy Agreement:

You, may cancel this agreement at any time prior to midnight of the third business day, after the date of this agreement, excluding Sundays and holidays.  To cancel this agreement, mail or fax a signed and dated notice that you are canceling this agreement.  A telephone call is also acceptable.  If you cancel under these provisions, you are liable for the pro-rated costs of any services you have elected to receive prior to the cancellation, plus applicable fees ($____) for dietary recommendations, (if such service was purchased) which you have elected to receive and actually received prior to cancellation, and such amount will be deducted from any refund due to you.  You, may only cancel thereafter due to medical reason with written explanation of Client’s physician stating the reason as to why Client is unable to use Trainer’s services.

Important information for new clients:

Training sessions:  Each training session can last up to, but is not required to be more than 50 minutes.  If Client is late arriving for a session, training will not extend beyond the scheduled time slot.  Also, Client’s scheduled trainer is obligated to wait only 15 minutes beyond the scheduled ”start time” before the Client is considered a “no show,” unless the Client has called and advised that Client will be running late.

Regarding partnered training: A Client signed up for partnered training, may be trained without a partner until the available time slot is filled.  Triangle Theory is responsible for filling any open partner time slot, so Client will not pay more than the agreed rate for the session.

Gym memberships: You may need to purchase a gym membership directly from the gym where you will be training.  It is best to purchase your membership on your first day of actual training so that you have maximum use of your membership.

I _______________________   understand that the first day I start training with Triangle Theory I must pay $______ directly to the gym for my ______ month membership, and $_____ directly to Trainer for (  ) Partnered training   (  ) Private training.


Date of Contract: ___________.
