Auto-Billing for Memberships:
AtmosEffect offers many services, as described in Section 6 of this Agreement, which may be on a recurring billing cycle, rather than a single payment. These services can be referred to as the auto-billed memberships. These services include, but are not limited to, FitCamp memberships, Personal Training memberships (in-person or through a virtual streaming service such as Zoom), and Online Coaching memberships. These auto-billed memberships are charged once every four (4) weeks on a recurring basis, with the first payment being made at the time of signing up with AtmosEffect. Payments on auto-bill memberships are set to automatically expire after a period of 3 years. Auto payments on a membership can expire sooner at your request, so long as the user provides a 30-day written cancellation notice to AtmosEffect per our cancellation policies (please see Section 7). In addition, please reference Section 7 for information regarding unused sessions and/or FitCamp classes.
Program Periods – 4/8/12:
In addition to auto-billed membership, AtmosEffect offers the services, provided in Section 6 of this Agreement, in term periods of four (4) weeks, eight (8) weeks, or twelve (12) week options. For programs longer than four (4) weeks, the user is auto-billed every four weeks for the duration of the respective program. The first payment for all packages is made at the time of signing up with AtmosEffect. Auto payments within these programs can expire sooner at your request, so long as the user provides a 30-day written cancellation notice to AtmosEffect per our cancellation policies (please see Section 7). In addition, please reference Section 7 for information regarding unused sessions. For these programs, all sessions must be used within the designated package time period. Unused sessions do not roll from one payment period to the next within the 4 week, 8 week and 12 week options. It is AtmosEffect’s sole discretion to extend the timeframe of a designated package due to the re-scheduling of sessions, or other reasons AtmosEffect deems appropriate. Upon the end of the program’s duration, all unused sessions must be used.
Personal Training On-Demand:
Users may also participate in personal training session via our On-Demand program. These programs are billed every four (4) weeks on a recurring basis, with the first payment being made at the time of signing up with AtmosEffect. Payments on this auto-bill program/membership are set to automatically expire after a period of 3 years. Auto payments on this membership can expire sooner at your request, so long as the user provides a 30-day written cancellation notice to AtmosEffect per our cancellation policies (please see Section 7).
It is the client’s responsibility to contact AtmosEffect in order to schedule personal training sessions within the Personal Trainer On-Demand format. AtmosEffect will do their best to accommodate scheduling requests, however, there is no guarantee that there will be availability during the clients desired timeslot.
(6) Services and Availability
While AtmosEffect strives to provide regular access to its services and Website, it is possible high volume or specific services may be unavailable at the time of your order. If this is the case, AtmosEffect will contact you in a reasonable time frame to advise you of the issue. You understand and agree that the availability of a service displayed through the Website or other advertising platforms does not guarantee that the service will be available at a certain date or time.
AtmosEffect offers many services and products. While the services and products provided are always changing, the general breakdown of renewing services, single services, products and on demand programs are included but not limited to the following:
- Personal Training (in-person and virtual live-stream)
- Transformation Groups
- Online Coaching
- Event Experiences
- Corporate, municipality and B2B wellness services
- Miscellaneous fitness services and nutrional guidance
Users may cancel their memberships or services at any time. To do so, users will need to submit a cancellation notice in writing to AtmosEffect (30-day notice of cancellation). Upon receipt of the user’s 30-day notice of cancellation, AtmosEffect will auto-bill the user one more time per their normal billing cycle, in which the user will have continued access to the membership for the final thirty-day period (“Cancellation Window”).
- Cancellation of FitCamp Memberships: Upon receipt of the 30-day written notice of cancellation, the user will have continued access to FitCamp classes during the Cancellation Window. Unused classes do not accumulate or rollover in a FitCamp membership and there are no options for refund or to gift any unused FitCamp classes to anyone else.
- Cancellation of all other Memberships or Packages: Upon cancellation, users must use all unused sessions before the 30-day Cancellation Window. These unused sessions may be accumulated from monthly rollover, or otherwise. If users have not utilized all of their unused sessions prior to the end of the Cancellation Window, users may either (1) forfeit such sessions without refund or (2) gift the unused sessions to a friend or family member within the given service area, at a fee of $20 per 60 minute session and $15 per 30 minute session.
All sales are final and payments are non-refundable. In addition, there are no refunds available for unused sessions or unused classes for any membership or package. Sales of products, either sold via Etsy, Printful or directly through an AtmosEffect representative are final and non-refundable.
(9) Rescheduling Appointments
Appointments and sessions can be rescheduled, only when the client provides a minimum of a 24-hour notice to AtmosEffect. Failure to due so within this time-frame will result in the session being forfeited without refund (see bullet point below for further guidance about small groups and transformation groups). Please call us directly in order to reschedule. If you are late to a FitCamp or a personal training session, this time will be deducted from your total session time.
There are no refunds available for cancelled appointments or FitCamp classes, only the opportunity to reschedule provided that a minimum of 24 hour notice is provided to AtmosEffect
If an appointment lands on a day where AtmosEffect is closed for business, whether due to holiday or similar closure, AtmosEffect will work with the client to re-schedule their appointment to another day.
Small Group Personal Training and Transformation Group sessions are forfeited automatically at the individual level when the group meets and an individual does not show-up to a workout. The 24 hour policy, in this case, applies to the whole group collectively, rather than each individual in the group. The decision to reschedule a small group or transformation group session rests solely at the discretion and authority of Atmos.
(10) Inclement Weather
If lightning is detected within 5 miles of the training location or other inclement weather is occurring such as rain, excessive heat/cold or otherwise, the FitCamp or training session will either 1) be transitioned into a suitable indoor space (if applicable) or 2) be transitioned onto a virtual platform such as Zoom, as AtmosEffect refrains from cancelling training sessions. If neither indoor or virtual options are appropriate/feasible (as solely determined by AtmosEffect), the session will be rescheduled; No refund will be issued, however, you will receive credit in order to re-schedule the missed personal training session or FitCamp.
(11) User Accounts
AtmosEffect may provide you with the ability to create a user account, either through AtmosEffect itself or through a support third-party vendor whom AtmosEffect utilizes, which may provide you with the ability to view special pricing, view order status, and see recently viewed and purchased services through the Business (hereinafter “User Account”).
