TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Terms & Conditions of Purchase
These Terms & Conditions of Purchase apply to everybody who purchases any type of class, series of classes or package of classes (“Purchaser”).
Section 1: Fees and Payments
- Purchaser’s Obligation. Purchaser shall not be relieved of the obligation to make payments agreed to, and no deduction from any payment shall be made because of Purchaser’s failure to use the facilities of SWERVE Fitness (the “Studio”).
- Form of Payment. All payments (including per class payments and incidentals) are payable by electronic funds transfer from the Purchaser’s credit card account or debit card account. Purchaser must authorize payments to be made through a third party administered electronic funds transfer system. Purchaser maintains full control and privacy over his or her account at all times, and the transfer of funds affects only those fees that have Purchaser’s prior authorization and when a Purchaser authorizes any additional transaction, including but not limited to single classes, class series, class packages, and retail or smoothie bar transactions either on the Studio’s website or in the Studio’s facilities, as well as charges associated with late cancellation and/or no-shows.
- Returned Payment Penalty. Purchaser will automatically be charged any bank fee imposed on the Studio, plus a processing fee, for any returned payment item due to closed accounts, insufficient funds or similar issue. On such occasion, the Studio retains the right to collect the current and past due balances in any subsequent month.
- Disputed Charge Penalty. In the event that a Purchaser initiates a credit card dispute that is subsequently resolved in the Studio’s favor, the Studio shall have the right to charge Purchaser up to $50 per occurrence.
- Cancellation of Classes. Purchaser may cancel his or her reservation (either on the Studio's website www.swervefitness.com, or by calling the Studio at the phone number specified on the Studio's website) no later than twelve (12) hours prior to the reserved class in order to retain the full class credit. Classes not cancelled prior to that time will be revoked.
Section 2: Classes
- Revocation of Classes. The Studio (in its sole discretion) may revoke Purchaser’s class, class series or class credits, at any time and without refund, in the event that Purchaser engages in behavior that is unsafe or objectionable to other participants or staff, or for reasons of nuisance, disturbance to other participants or staff, moral turpitude or fraud, or personal hygiene and attire. The Studio also reserves the right to require Purchaser to leave for the day if, in the Studio’s reasonable judgment, Purchaser poses a health or safety risk to Purchaser or others, or is disturbing or likely to disturb other participants or staff.
- Use Privileges. Purchaser must abide by the individual rules of the Studio. Additionally, the Studio (in its sole discretion) reserves the right to revoke or suspend Purchaser’s class, class series or class credits if Purchaser has purchased a class, class series or class packages, and allows persons other than Purchaser to use Purchaser’s account to book and/or attend classes.
Section 3: Purchaser Risk
- Medical Recommendations. Purchaser is strongly advised to consult with his or her physician or to have a physical examination before using any of the Studio’s facilities or enrolling in any of the Studio’s classes, especially if Purchaser is elderly, pregnant, has a history of heart disease, high blood pressure or other chronic illness, or is unaccustomed to strenuous physical exertion or has any other physical limitations that could create an increased risk of injury or adverse health consequences from strenuous exercise.
- Orientation. Purchaser is strongly encouraged to arrive early prior to their first ride as well as request ongoing support available at the Studio to ensure the proper and safe use of all of the Studio’s equipment.
- Purchaser Conduct. Purchaser shall not use any Studio facility, service or equipment in such a way as to endanger the health or safety of Purchaser or others. Purchaser shall be responsible for any property damage or personal injury caused by Purchaser and/or his or her guests.

By enrolling or participating in any of the Studio’s classes, or otherwise using any of the Studio’s facilities, PURCHASER WILLINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY ASSUMES ALL SUCH RISKS. The Studio cannot, and does not, guarantee that any facility, class or equipment is free of risk of any and all accidents or injuries of any kind (including death).
- Medical Disclaimer. Purchaser has been informed and acknowledges that the Studio makes no claims as to medical or fitness results that can or may be obtained through use of the Studio’s facilities, equipment or services. The Studio has neither suggested nor will suggest any medical treatment to Purchaser. Only licensed medical professionals are qualified to give medical advice.
- Purchaser’s Health Warranty. By enrolling or participating in any of the Studio’s classes, or otherwise using any of the Studio’s facilities, Purchaser represents and warrants that he or she (i) is in good medical and physical condition, and that participation in the classes or use of the facilities does not pose any danger to Purchaser’s health; (ii) has no medical or physical conditions that would preclude his or her participation in any of the Studio’s classes or use of the Studio’s facilities, or otherwise create an increased risk of injury or adverse health consequences as a result of strenuous exercise; and (iii) has not been instructed or advised by any physician against participating in strenuous physical exercise or exertion, participating in any of the Studio’s classes, or using the Studio’s facilities.
- Purchaser Waiver, Release and Indemnity.
