- GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF FITSPOT SERVICES
Fitspot is a marketplace and service where users who are seeking group fitness professionals and individual fitness professionals in any number of fitness disciplines can schedule these services at their location with the specific expertise they are seeking.
The Fitspot technology platform allows users to search and select the appropriate trainer for their needs, schedule an appointment at a mutually agreeable time and place and pay for the services directly through the platform. Likewise, fitness professionals can post class types and their schedule for view by Fitspot users and then collect payment directly through the platform. The Fitspot technology platform also allows Fitspot Members to track individual, employee and collective company wellness data.
The Website, App and Member Services can only be used to offer personal training, group training, fitness services, fitness tracking and for no other purpose. Fitspot is a platform that serves as a conduit to connect users seeking individual and group fitness professionals with fitness professionals and as such Fitspot Trainers are not employees of Fitspot and Fitspot is not hiring a Fitspot Trainer for any Fitspot Member.

3. FITSPOT PLATFORM
Fitspot provides the Fitspot Platform to Members for the purpose of assisting Members in securing Fitspot Trainers to provide desired fitness services, tracking employee/employer data and enabling communication between participating Members and Fitspot Trainers.
In response to a Member’s request to book a Fitspot Trainer through the Website or App, Fitspot directly notifies the Fitspot Trainer of the Member’s booking request through the Fitspot Platform. A Fitspot Trainer may accept or reject a Member’s booking request in his or her sole discretion. Fitspot Trainers at no time shall be required to accept a Member’s booking request.
Each Fitspot Trainer shall be free in his or her sole discretion to determine at what times and on what dates he or she shall make himself or herself available on the Fitspot Platform to accept booking requests from Members. Fitspot maintains the discretion to staff Fitspot Trainers that it deems a best fit for the requested individual or group class.
- PAYMENT MECHANICS AND TERMS
In order to use the Mobile Payment Services, you must provide credit card or debit card information for at least one operational and valid credit card or debit card through the App. You may add, delete, and edit the credit card or debit card information you have provided from time to time through the App. All charges are due immediately and payment will be facilitated by Fitspot using the preferred payment method designated in your Account. If your primary Account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that Fitspot may, as the Third Party Provider’s limited payment collection agent, use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available. When a Member books an appointment via credit card, a temporary authorization may be placed on the authorized credit card. Upon confirmation to Fitspot that an appointment with a Member has been completed, such Member’s credit card or debit card is immediately charged in full for the service.
Payment Services offered to corporate members may be processed via credit card or ACH transfer. All charges are due immediately and payment will be facilitated by Fitspot using the preferred payment method designated in your Account. If your primary Account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that Fitspot may, as the Third Party Provider’s limited payment collection agent, use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available.
In the event a Member desires to cancel an appointment, such cancellation will be at no charge (or debit of credits) to the Member if cancelled within 48 hours of a confirmed booking and this appointment can be rescheduled within the tenure of the subscription term. If however, a Member initially books the appointment within 48 hours of the appointment, then the Member will be charged unless such appointment is cancelled within the first 15 minutes of such booking (the “Cancellation Periods”). If a Member does not cancel a confirmed appointment within the applicable Cancellation Period, 100% of the cost of the services will be charged as a cancellation fee or in the case of a subscription the session credit will be deemed “used”.
Once a session is confirmed completed by the Trainer and the fee collected by Fitspot, Fitspot charges a fee to fitness trainers (the “Admin Fee”) in Fitspot’s sole and absolute discretion. Fitspot will remit the amount of payment by the Member, less the Admin Fee to the Fitspot Trainer using the account information provided by the Fitspot Trainer. Any refunds made to a Member will be deducted from any amounts paid to the Fitspot Trainer. Fitspot Trainers may not accept payment from members associated with Fitspot and doing so will result in termination from Fitspot.
In Fitspot’s sole and absolute discretion, refunds or credits may be granted in extenuating circumstances, as a result of specific refund guarantee promotions, or to correct any errors made by Fitspot. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and the client shall be responsible for payment of all taxes, levies, or duties associated with his or her purchases hereunder, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes. You may not pay your Fitspot Trainer or arrange for training sessions with your Fitspot Trainer outside of the Fitspot platform and doing so will result in termination of the Member Services.

When registering for a Fitspot Member Account, you must provide true, accurate, current, and complete data about yourself or company (“Fitspot Member Registration Data”).

- DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR USE OF THE MEMBER SERVICES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE MEMBER SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, FITSPOT AND ITS OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, AND LICENSORS (REFERRED TO COLLECTIVELY AS “AFFILIATES”) DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE WEBSITE, APP AND MEMBER SERVICES (INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT).
FITSPOT AND ITS AFFILIATES MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE WEBSITE, APP OR MEMBER SERVICES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY RECOMMENDATIONS OR OTHER CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE MEMBER SERVICES, OR THE CONTENT OF ANY WEBSITES OR RESOURCES LINKED TO THE SITE OR SERVICES. FITSPOT AND ITS AFFILIATES WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY: (A) ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES OF CONTENT; (B) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES; (C) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SERVERS OR OF ANY PERSONAL OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION; (D) ANY INTERRUPTION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM THE SITE OR SERVICES; (E) ANY COMPUTER VIRUSES OR MALICIOUS CODE THAT MAY BE TRANSMITTED ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES; OR (F) ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY FUNCTIONALITY OR CONTENT POSTED, E-MAILED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES.
FITSPOT AND ITS AFFILIATES DO NOT WARRANT, ENDORSE, GUARANTEE, OR ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCT OR SERVICES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY SERVICES OFFERED BY FITNESS TRAINERS, PAYMENT SERVICES, RECOMMENDED, ADVERTISED, OR OFFERED ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES OR ANY LINKED WEBSITE.
YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER USERS (INCLUDING BOTH CLIENTS AND FITNESS TRAINERS). TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW IN NO EVENT SHALL THE FITSPOT PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY INJURIES, LOSSES, CLAIMS, OR DIRECT DAMAGES OR ANY SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, AND EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, WHICH ARISE OUT OF OR ARE ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH (1) THIS AGREEMENT, (2) ANY USE OF THE MEMBER SERVICES BY THE MEMBER, (3) ANY FAILURE OR DELAY (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE ANY COMPONENT OF THE FITSPOT PORTAL) OR (4) A FITSPOT TRAINER’S ACTS OR OMISSIONS AT A MEMBER’S COMPANY, RESIDENCE OR OTHER LOCATION WHETHER RELATED TO THE FITSPOT TRAINER’S PROVISION OF FITNESS SERVICES TO A MEMBER OR OTHERWISE.
FITSPOT EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS, OR INDEMNITIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED IN RESPECT OF THE MEMBER SERVICES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AS TO THE INFORMATION PROVIDED ABOUT FITSPOT TRAINERS AND THE ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF FITSPOT TRAINERS.
THE QUALITY OF THE FITSPOT TRAINER SERVICES IS ENTIRELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE FITSPOT TRAINER WHO PROVIDES SUCH FITNESS SERVICES TO YOU. YOU UNDERSTAND, THEREFORE, THAT BY USING THE SERVICES OF A FITSPOT TRAINER, YOU AND/OR YOUR EMPLOYEES MAY BE EXPOSED TO FITNESS SERVICES THAT ARE POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS, UNSAFE OR OTHERWISE OBJECTIONABLE, AND THAT YOUR USE OF THE MEMBER SERVICES AND BOOKING OF A FITSPOT TRAINER IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR RELIANCE ON ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY FITSPOT OR BY ANY FITSPOT TRAINER TO YOU IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK AND YOU ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL RISK ASSOCIATED THEREWITH, AS ALLOWABLE TO THE EXTENT OF THE LAW.
ALTHOUGH FITSPOT PROVIDES INFORMATION ABOUT FITSPOT TRAINERS, FITSPOT DOES NOT PROVIDE THE SERVICES RENDERED BY FITSPOT TRAINERS. FITSPOT REQUESTS BACKGROUND INFORMATION OF ITS FITSPOT TRAINERS, BUT FITSPOT DOES NOT AND CANNOT GUARANTEE THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF ANY SUCH INFORMATION-GATHERING OR THAT A PARTICULAR FITSPOT TRAINER IS ADEQUATELY QUALIFIED TO PERFORM ANY GIVEN SERVICE. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT FITSPOT MAY NOT CONDUCT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS OR SCREENINGS ON OR ANY OTHER SCREENING OF CLIENTS OR FITNESS TRAINERS.

FITSPOT MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE CONDUCT OF CLIENTS OR FITNESS TRAINERS OR THEIR COMPATIBILITY WITH ANY CURRENT OR FUTURE CLIENTS OR FITNESS TRAINERS. FITSPOT RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT ANY CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK OR OTHER SCREENINGS (SUCH AS SEX OFFENDER REGISTER SEARCHES), AT ANY TIME AND USING AVAILABLE PUBLIC RECORDS.
THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMERS APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. YOU MAY HAVE OTHER STATUTORY RIGHTS. HOWEVER, THE DURATION OF STATUTORILY REQUIRED WARRANTIES, IF ANY, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent FITSPOT may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of FITSPOT’s liability will be the minimum permitted under such law.
You and Fitspot understand and agree that the disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations set forth herein are essential elements of this Agreement and that they represent a reasonable allocation of risk. In particular, you understand that Fitspot would be unable to make the Member Services available to you except on these terms and agree that this Agreement will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in this Agreement is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
Any and all controversies, disputes, demands, counts, claims, or causes of action (including the interpretation and scope of this clause, and the arbitrability of the controversy, dispute, demand, count, claim, or cause of action) between you and Fitspot shall exclusively be settled through binding and confidential arbitration.
Arbitration shall be subject to the Federal Arbitration Act and not any state arbitration law. The arbitration shall be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes from the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). As modified by this Agreement, and unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties in writing, the arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems them applicable, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, the “Rules and Procedures”).
You are thus GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights EXCEPT for matters that you file in small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
You and Fitspot must abide by the following rules: (1) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR FITSPOT MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (2) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF; (3) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Fitspot will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation, (4) Fitspot also reserves the right in its sole and exclusive discretion to assume responsibility for all of the costs of the arbitration; (5) the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (6) the arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (7) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (8) each side pays its own attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses, and, in such instance, the fees and costs awarded shall be determined by the applicable law.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or Fitspot may bring an individual action in small claims court. Further, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret shall not be subject to this arbitration agreement. Such claims shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles, California. Additionally, notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles, California in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration, and hereby agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Los Angeles, California for such purpose. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to arbitrate.
With the exception of subparts (1) and (2) in this Section (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting part was not contained herein. If, however, either subpart (1) or (2) is found to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor Fitspot shall be entitled to arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute shall be exclusively brought in state or federal court located in Los Angeles, California.
For more information on AAA, the Rules and Procedures, or the process for filing an arbitration claim, you may call AAA at 800-778-7879 or visit the AAA website at http://www.adr.org.

If you object to any such changes, your sole recourse shall be to cease using the Member Services. Continued use of the Member Services following any such changes shall indicate your acknowledgment of such changes and satisfaction with all the Member Services, including the pricing structure in relation thereto.
