TERMS OF SERVICE

Introduction

Your agreement is with Custom Training (the “Provider”) who contracts the personal trainers (the "Trainers") that deliver your training.

These Terms and Conditions form part of your agreement with the Provider. Your instructions to commence personal training will constitute acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, meaning you will become a client (a “Client” or “you”).

You are asked to pay special attention to the provisions related to cancellations. This does not affect your legal rights.

Provider's Obligations

The Trainers will use their skills and knowledge to design a safe programme of exercise that will take into account your lifestyle, personal goals, fitness levels and medical history. 

The Trainers will provide the coaching, supervision, advice and support that you will need to achieve your goals. Apart from the initial consultation (and the first personal training session if taken immediately afterwards) each personal training session will last approximately 60 minutes unless otherwise agreed (a “Session”).

You understand that the results of any fitness programme cannot be guaranteed. Your progress depends on your effort and co-operation in and outside of the Sessions. You acknowledge that individual results may vary and that no particular result is guaranteed by the Provider and her Trainers.

All Client information will be kept strictly private and confidential.

Your Obligations

It is understood between you and your Trainer that both must commit to your training programme 100% in order for you to achieve results.

You are required to arrive on time for each Session so that the Trainer’s full training plan is achieved on each Session.

You are required to wear appropriate clothing and footwear, as reasonably prescribed by the Provider at any time.

You understand and agree that it is your responsibility to inform the Trainer of any conditions or changes to your health, now and ongoing, which might affect your ability to exercise safely and with minimal risk of injury. Should you experience any pain, discomfort, or injury during any of your Sessions, you are required to inform your Trainer immediately in order to ensure appropriate action is taken. The Provider and the Trainer are not liable for undeclared or unknown medical conditions.

You should not exercise beyond your own abilities. If you know or are concerned that you have a medical condition or have been prescribed medication which might interfere with you exercising safely, before you start your Sessions you should get advice from a medical professional and follow that advice. You understand that there are inherent risks in participating in a programme of strenuous exercise. If you sustain any injury while participating in Session, you acknowledge that the Trainer is not responsible, except where the injury was caused by  gross negligence or wilful misconduct.

If you bring children or minors to the Session they remain your responsibility throughout and the Trainer cannot be held liable.

The Trainer may provide you with advice regarding food and nutrition. You understand that such advice does not qualify in any way as medical treatment, Trainers do not qualify as health care providers and cannot diagnose and/or prescribe treatment for any form of injury, disease, or other medical condition. 

Liability

The total, aggregate liability of the Provider and the Trainers due to an attributable breach of their obligations, including the breach of a warranty (in Dutch: “toerekenbare tekortkoming”) and/or any unlawful act (in Dutch: “onrechtmatige daad”) or otherwise, is limited to the amounts paid by the insurer of the Provider for a covered claim. The provider shall take out an adequate and reasonable general liability insurance in order to cover its risks hereunder, as far as possible.

Attending Sessions and leaving belongings in the changing rooms are at your own risk. The Provider accepts no liability for loss or damage of personal belongings. The Provider and the Trainers are not liable for any injury or damage you may suffer as a result of the incorrect use of the equipment and/or facilities or for personal injuries sustained during Sessions. Participating is always at your own risk.
