It is your responsibility to ensure your account has sufficient funds on payment day. If your membership fees are outstanding at the relevant due date you will be politely asked to settle your account before using the gym.

If your direct debit fails, we will either add the outstanding sum to the next direct debit or make additional direct debits to recover the overdue amount. We may apply reasonable administration costs to undertake this. Ongoing defaults on payment will result in membership cancellation.

 

From time to time, there will be necessary adjustments to membership fees. After the end of your Minimum Period, we may adjust the amount of your Regular Payments, however, we will give you at least 4 weeks’ prior notice of any fee increase.
