MEMBERSHIP DECLARATION – All HOURS FITNESS
Please read the following terms and conditions carefully.
At All Hours Fitness we are committed to providing you with a safe and secure fitness facility. As we are a 24-hour facility but not staffed for 24 hours we ask you to maintain our security protocols at all times.
All Hours Fitness is under 24-hour CCTV video surveillance. Your activities will be recorded whether you are working out or entering/leaving the building and entering/leaving the restrooms. This video system is used only for security purposes. You must use caution when entering/leaving the building. This surveillance system does not protect you from harm in or on the building premises. An emergency telephone number is available if you feel threatened or witness suspicious activity.
Under no circumstances shall you allow access to non-members and/or people who knock on the door. Doing so may put you and other members at risk of injury or harm and could result in your membership privileges being cancelled. The club is equipped with panic buttons and an emergency call button. These are designed to alert authorities in the event you or other members are either threatened or in need of help.
Member Notification: Members are not permitted to bring non-members in at any time without prior consent from All Hours Fitness management. If this policy is violated, the member will be charged a penalty of $50 and/or have their membership suspended or cancelled. Members may not allow anyone else to use of their personal access tag and must inform the club immediately if it is lost or stolen. Violating this policy carries the same penalties. A replacement tag will be charged at $45.
Club members who do not have their personal access tag will not be allowed into the facility during non-staffed hours, nor should they ask other members to let them into the facility. Doing so will attract penalties for both parties.
Personal training services provided in this facility may be provided either by employees or by independent contractors operating their own business. Members are also required to use the safety features of the equipment. Members are not permitted to provide personal training to other members in the club without being registered as a club personal trainer. Doing so will result in immediate membership cancellation.
Vulgar language, abuse of the equipment, working out while intoxicated, yelling/screaming, loud noises, intimidation, not abiding by all posted signage, warnings and gym rules or any other inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in the suspension or cancellation of the offending member’s membership. Cancellation policy and fees will apply to the cancellation of their account. Photography and/or videography of other members are not permitted anywhere in the fitness club.
Member Assumption of Risk and Release: You understand there is a possible risk of injury from club activities. Using any club equipment can include the potential for permanent injury or death. I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, both known and unknown and acknowledge that this is an UNSUPERVISED FITNESS CLUB and I assume all risks associated with using exercise equipment alone without the aide and presence of club staff on the premises. You understand that All Hours Fitness is independently owned and operated.
We STRONGLY advise all members to consult with their General Practitioner before the use of any club equipment. You therefore declare that you are in a good state of physical condition, health and fitness and there is no medical reason whatsoever that could be regarded as a restriction upon or an obstruction to your application for membership. Members are therefore entirely responsible for any risk that may arise as a result of personal health factors.
You explicitly agree that this release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of this state and if a portion of this release is held invalid, the balance shall remain in full force and effect. This release shall apply to ALL members of the club without exception, including minors with parent/guardian consent. You hereby release, indemnify, and hold harmless the Club, All Hours Fitness, their respective owners, officers, affiliates, agents, employees, sponsors, advertisers and, if applicable, owners and lessors of the premises used to conduct any sponsored event (Releasees), with respect to any and all injury, disability, death, or loss or damage to person or property, whether arising from negligence of the releasees or otherwise, that may out of or in connection with your use of the equipment or the facilities of the Club or any incident that occurs while using the Club’s facilities or engaging in Club activities on or off the premises or otherwise related to your Club membership.
Tailgate Penalty Fees
Members are requested NOT to allow anyone into the facility at any time and for any reason. By becoming an All Hours Fitness member, you understand and agree that your personal access tag is registered to your name and your name alone. You are NOT permitted to allow access into the facility to anyone other than yourself and it is your responsibility to ensure that the members door is closed and secure upon your entering AND exiting of the facility.
If you are on a direct debit membership, in the instance where you do allow another person access into the facility, a tailgate fine of $50 will automatically be applied onto your account and debited on the next billing day. If you are on an upfront paid in full membership, in the instance where you do allow another person access into the facility, your access to the club will be suspended until the $50 penalty has been paid.
Incorrect use of your personal access tag to enter this facility such as sharing with non-members or multiple entry can also result in IMMEDIATE CANCELLATION OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP AND A PENALTY OF $200. Please be reminded that you are under constant 24-hour video surveillance.
Equipment Penalty Fees
It is your responsibility to return your weights and equipment to their appropriate/allocated position immediately after each use. For direct debit members, fines of $50 apply and gym access may be restricted for non-compliance. For upfront paid in full members, your access to the club will be suspended until the $50 penalty fee has been paid and gym access may be restricted for non-compliance.
Occupational Health & Safety
Due to hygiene regulations, it is MANDATORY a towel be used during your workout.
For safety reasons you are required to always wear closed footwear whilst using the facility. Thongs/sandals are not permitted.
The crash matt provided must always be used whilst using the functional rig.
Membership Suspension: Members can suspend their membership for a maximum of 4 weeks each calendar year. If a suspension is placed during your contract period, this term of suspension will be added to the end of your contract. This also applies to suspensions placed by All Hours Fitness due to temporary gym closer.
Early Cancellation: If you have chosen to cancel within the minimum membership term, you are required to pay the full amount left on your existing Membership. This also applies should you relocate your place of residence or for any medical reason. Members do have the option to suspend their membership for a period of up to 1 month per year. If you do not cancel your membership after minimum membership term your payments will continue. It is your (the member’s) responsibility to cancel or suspend your membership for non-use. If you have not done so and wish to return to the club and have an outstanding amount owing, it must be paid in full before recommencing your membership. Upfront memberships do not have an early cancellation.
Cancellation after the minimum term: You can cancel your membership after the minimum term free of charge. Your cancellation notice must be in writing and delivered to All Hours Fitness.
Please note: When your contract term ends, the direct debits will continue unless there is a cancellation request. You will be held liable for these charges as it is your responsibility to cancel your membership.
Minors: As parent/guardian of a minor, you take full responsibility for any and all actions, damage, injuries, or loss to property or person, performed by the minor with or without your supervision in the club. You further agree that any breach of the club’s policies on the minor’s part may constitute to the loss of the minor’s and/or your membership privileges. Minors under the age of 16 years must only enter the facility during staffed hours.
Social Media: With your consent, All Hours Fitness staff will be required to promote the facility on social platforms. This includes photography and/or videography of members using the facility.
