I am aware that there are significant risks involved in all aspects of physical training. I understand that the reaction of the heart, lungs, and vascular system to exercise cannot always be predicted with accuracy. I understand that there is a risk of certain abnormal changes occurring during or following exercise which may include abnormalities of blood pressure or heart rate; chest, arm or leg discomfort; transient light-headedness or fainting; and in rare instances, heart attack, stroke or even death. Excessive work can result (in rare cases) in exertional rhabdomyolosis. I should look for signs of excessive soreness, darkened urine, and pain in the kidney areas in the days following a particularly intense workout. While this type of injury is relatively rare, it can occur due to a number of factors, including but not limited to, genetic predisposition or dehydration, that may be beyond the control of my trainer. I understand that the programs and classes offered by CrossFit Putney are of a nature and kind that are extremely strenuous and can/may push me to the limits of my physical abilities. These risks include but are not limited to falls which can result in serious injury or death, injury or death due to negligence on the part of myself, my training partner, or other people around me; injury or death due to improper use or failure of equipment. I am aware that any of these above mentioned risks may result in serious injury or death to myself and or my partner(s).

Membership Terms and Conditions
The Main Membership Terms and Conditions regarding downgrading,
pausing and canceling memberships are as follows. Full terms can be found on our website on the membership page.
Length of Membership
All monthly memberships advertised on our website are rolling monthly contracts. The minimum term is one month. A Pro Rata Month will not count towards a Members Minimum Contract term. A Member cannot join for monthly membership for less than a month. The drop in opinion is available instead.
Members on a Monthly Membership contract may cancel their Membership, by giving one full calendar month's advance written notice. The membership cancellation will be effective from the 30 days from the date that notice is given. Notice to cancel a membership should be done by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If a cancellation notice is received on the 20th January for instance, the cancellation will take effect from the 19th February. Therefore, the Member will pay pro rata on the 1st February for the 19 days. The Member will have a prorated use of their Membership until then.
If a membership is paused while a cancellation is requested, the membership will be unpaused and the member will start the 30 day cancellation period and be charged accordingly.
No refunds are offered on any of our Membership Types.
Due to the flexibility of the Monthly Memberships, CrossFit Putney does not allow short term pausing of memberships. If a member knows they will be away for a period of time in a given month, they have the option to downgrade their membership package in advance. i.e Reducing their membership from 22 sessions to 13 sessions, 13 to 9 etc.
All requests to downgrade a membership must be received by the 20th of the month before. A member cannot downgrade their membership once the month has already started.
There is no option to downgrade a 9 Sessions per month, Off Peak or Peak Open Gym Membership and short term pauses are also not allowed for these membership types. If a member is not able to make best use of their membership for certain months, they have the option to cancel as per the rules below, and then purchase individual drop in sessions.
Members can only pause their membership for one full calendar month, once in a 12 month period.
Membership may not be paused during the notice period of cancellation. If a membership is paused and then requested to cancel the pause period does not count towards the cancellation period and any credit notes that would have been due once the membership would have been reactivated would no longer be due.
If a member has already used their 1 month pause, cancels and then re-joins, they won’t receive another month pause until 12 months has past since their initial month pause.
CrossFit Putney coaches are available and happy to help a member make use of their membership with programming and advice while they are traveling if their membership is not paused. Please email email@example.com to request this.
A Member must request the membership pause by the 20th day of the month prior to the requested pause start date. For example, a Member who wishes to freeze commencing 1st February, must complete the request by 20th January. A freeze request completed on 21st January would only be eligible for a freeze start date as of 1st March.
Pausing for reasons of illness, injury or pregnancy will be reviewed and considered in relation to the fee and notice period; valid medical documentation must be attached to the request for this to be considered.
A Member may apply for their Membership to be Paused as per the above by submitting a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Class / Booking Cancellations and Fines
There is a £5 fine for ‘no shows’ for any booking (class or open gym) and for late cancellations. Members must cancel from class 2 hours before the class starts; or if the class starts at 8am or before then the class needs to be canceled before 10pm the night before. Otherwise, the £5 fine is automatically taken from the members WODBoard account. If a mistake has been made then a member should email email@example.com.
