- 8.1.2
There is not enough money available in your bank account; or

We will ask you to pay by cash, debit card or credit card and to give us your correct bank details. You will also be asked to set up a new Direct Debit.
- 8.2.2

8.3
If there is not enough money available in your account:
- 8.3.1
We will ask you to pay by cash, debit card or credit card. If, after the second month we have contacted you, you still owe us the payment, we will cancel your membership from the end of that month or, if you have a discounted monthly membership, at the end of your commitment period. Where a direct debit payment has failed or been refused, we may attempt to obtain payment through the same direct debit. You are responsible for any charges imposed by your bank in connection with any failed payments or attempts.
- 8.3.2
While you owe us payments you will not be allowed to enter or use the studio. Once your payments are up to date you will be allowed to enter and use the studio. You will still have to pay all monthly membership fees for the duration of the commitment period you signed up to.

8.4
If you have cancelled your direct debit without giving us notice:

Or we may choose to take the payments owed from your credit card or debit card using the credit card or debit card details you have given us, and you hereby authorise us to do so.
9.1
You can change your membership at any time while you are a member.
9.2
As monthly membership fees vary, if you change your membership, you will need to pay the difference in fees of your new membership, either by monthly payments or, if you have chosen our discounted prepaid payment (see section 6.3) option, by paying the difference before you transfer. The first full calendar month or 12 full calendar months (depending on which commitment period you have chosen) will continue instead of starting again. You will not have to pay another activation fee to transfer your membership. Money will not be refunded if the change results in reduced membership fees.
10.1
You may temporarily freeze your membership for between one complete calendar month and 12 complete calendar months for the following reasons only. We may require you to produce proof which is satisfactory to us of any of these reasons that you are relying on to freeze your membership, in accordance with section 18 of these Terms and Conditions.
- 10.1.1
Pregnancy
- 10.1.2
Serious illness
- 10.1.3

Redundancy
- 10.1.5

10.2
As long as you obtain our prior written agreement, you may extend the period of any membership freeze. Freezing your membership is not the same as cancelling your membership – freezing is a temporary suspension, cancellation is terminating your membership. To cancel your membership you must follow the procedure described in section 11 below.
10.3
If you want to freeze your membership, you can request us to do so in writing or by completing a form. As long as we receive your request on or before the 15th day of the month, we can apply this from the first of the following month.
10.4
If we receive your request in accordance with section 10.3 and agree to freeze your membership, we will do so with effect from the first day of the following month. We cannot freeze it from an earlier date and will not refund any monthly fees paid before your membership was frozen.
10.5
When you request us to freeze your membership, you will need to tell us when you plan to resume your membership and return to using the studio, although your membership can start again before this date if you let us know. We will automatically start your membership again, and start taking any direct debits, on the date you tell us you want your membership to resume.
10.6
We will not charge you membership fees while your membership is frozen. If you have chosen our discounted monthly or discounted prepaid payment option, we will extend your membership period by the number of full calendar months your membership has been frozen for. If we increase our prices during the period when your membership is frozen, you will have to pay any new prices that apply to your membership type when your membership resumes.
10.7
You will not be allowed to use any of our services while your membership is frozen. However, if your child has a membership with us and has not frozen their membership (see section 20 below), you will be able to accompany him or her to the studio so that they can use the club facilities in supervised sessions.
10.8
If you have joint or family membership, freezing your membership may result in changes to your payment arrangements, including losing some or all of any discount you and they receive. We will tell you about any changes when you ask to freeze your membership if this applies.
11.1
Cancelling your membership during the cooling-off period
- 11.1.1
If you have purchased your membership online, you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days of joining and receive a refund. The 14-day cancellation period commences the day of your membership start date which is stated on your agreement. This is called the ‘cooling-off period’. If you choose to cancel within the cooling off period, we will give you a full refund of any fees you have paid.
- 11.1.2
If you want to cancel your membership within the cooling-off period, you must send notice in writing to the studio’s manager or fill in a form online.
- 11.1.3
If you have purchased your membership in person at the studio, rather than by joining online, you may be entitled to cancel and obtain a refund subject to the provisions of clause 12 below.
11.2
Cancelling your membership after the cooling-off period
- 11.2.1
To cancel your membership after the cooling-off period has expired, you must send your notice in writing to the studio’s manager or fill in a cancellation form online. On receipt of your notice on the first day of the month, your membership will end on the last day of the same month. If we receive your notice after the first day of the month, your membership will end on the last day of the following month. This means we will take one more direct debit payment before cancelling your membership.

For example, if we receive your notice on 10 May, cancellation will take effect from 30 June. If you are within your commitment period, we will cancel your membership from the 1st day of the month after the commitment period has finished, as long as it is at least one full calendar month in advance. If you are not sure what your commitment period is, please contact your home club.
- 11.2.2
If you cancel your membership in writing (by post or e-mail), when we receive your written notice we will send you an acknowledgement email to confirm the date that your membership will end. If you do not receive this acknowledgement, you must assume that we have not received your cancellation notice and you must contact us and send a further cancellation notice to us.
11.3
After the cooling-off period you may cancel your membership within your membership commitment period for the reasons set out in 11.3.1 to 11.3.9 only. We may require you to produce proof, satisfactory to us and in accordance with section 18 below, if you cancel for any of the following reasons:
- 11.3.1
Pregnancy
- 11.3.2
Serious illness
- 11.3.3
Serious injury
- 11.3.4
If you move house more than five miles from any club
- 11.3.5
Redundancy
- 11.3.6

- 11.3.7
If we permanently close your home club
- 11.3.8
If we close your home club in its entirety for refurbishment for more than one month at any time
- 11.3.9
If we significantly reduce the opening hours or facilities at the studio, unless this is temporary and we need to do so for (i) health and safety reasons (ii) for maintenance or (iii) for improvements that will benefit a majority of members – in any such case we will not offer services elsewhere.
11.4
If you are currently on a discounted monthly membership and are unhappy with any change in the monthly membership fee that applies to you, you must inform us in writing that you are cancelling your membership because of the increased fee. You will still have to pay any increased fee until your commitment period has been fulfilled and your membership ends. However, if you request a refund, we will refund you any difference between the old monthly membership fee and the increased monthly membership fee at the end of your membership commitment period.
11.5
As well as the above, you may cancel your specific type of membership in the following ways:
- 11.5.1
Standard monthly - if you have chosen, or changed to, our standard monthly payment option, you can cancel your membership by giving us one full calendar month’s notice in writing.
- 11.5.2
Discounted monthly - if you have chosen, or changed to, our discounted monthly payment option, you must give us one full calendar month’s written notice to cancel your membership at the end of your 12-month membership commitment period.

However, you can cancel your membership straightaway if you pay for the remaining full calendar months of your commitment period.
- 11.5.3
Prepaid - if you have chosen, or changed to, our prepaid payment options, we will cancel your membership at the end of your membership commitment period unless you renew your membership commitment period. If you decide to renew your membership commitment period and you currently pay your discounted prepaid membership by direct debit, your membership will continue for a further 12 full calendar months and we will give you at least 10 working days’ notice that your monthly payments are due for the next 12 full calendar months.
- 11.5.4
A joint membership - if you have chosen or changed to a joint membership, we will automatically change your membership to an individual standard membership if the other joint member gives the correct notice to cancel. We will inform you of the new monthly membership fees applicable and when you will start paying them. If you both want to cancel, you should follow the process in sections 11.5.1 to 11.5.3.
- 11.5.6
A family membership - if one family member cancels or changes the membership, or you no longer qualify for this membership, the remaining family members will automatically move to the appropriate type of membership. If this happens, we will give you written notice. If all members of the family want to cancel, you and they should follow the process in sections 11.5.1 to 11.5.3.
11.6
Your right to cancel any extra benefits
- 11.6.1

If you have joined online, to cancel your membership you can either complete the request to cancel form, a link to which can be found in your receipt email, or you can cancel in any of the ways mentioned in this section 11.
12.1
In some circumstances we offer a 14-day money back guarantee to new, first-time members who wish to cancel their membership.

To be eligible to claim under the money back guarantee, you must be a new, first-time member.

You are not eligible to claim if you have been a member and are re-joining, or if you are changing the type of membership you hold (for example, changing from a joint or family membership to an individual membership).

Where you are eligible to claim under the 14-day money back guarantee, you must give us written notice of cancellation by email or by completing the appropriate online form within 14 days from the date on which your membership starts – this may differ from your joining date, for example you may join the studio on the 1st day of a month but decide not to start your membership until the 14th day of that month. In that instance, the 14-day period commences from and including the 14th day.

We will process your cancellation request immediately and refund any payments made on your then current membership in accordance with 12.2 below.

This money back guarantee is separate and distinct from your right to cancel where you have joined online, by email or telephone – see section 11 ‘Your Right to Cancel Your Membership’ – but we will only refund any payments made once.
12.2
We will issue any refunds due to you by bank transfer or by the same method you made payment to us.

13.3
If we cancel your membership under section 13.1 or 13.2 we will not allow you to purchase our services in the future and you will not be allowed to enter the studio.
13.4
If we permanently close the studio, we will, where possible, give you at least one full calendar month’s notice in writing. We will send this to the address you have given us. We will also put a notice on the studio information board and website news page. We will try to offer you a suitable alternative service. If this is not possible, or you refuse our offer, we will end your membership at the end of the month’s notice and refund any monthly membership fees you have already paid for the remaining commitment period.

Please see your payment options for details of how fee changes will affect you.
