CrossFit Putney offers 3 Founding Membership packages depending on how often the Member would like to train. All 3 options have a range of contract lengths to give Members a choice of price versus flexibility.
The 3 Founding Membership types are:
For all the Founding Memberships, the first month’s payment is taken upfront when the Member submits their Founding Membership Submission.
When the opening date for CrossFit Putney’s is known, the Members first month, which they have paid upfront for on submission of their Founding Membership Submission will start on that date. They will not be billed on this date. The 2nd month payment will be taken pro rata a month after the gym has opened. The payments will then start regularly on the 1st of the next month.
Here is an example for a Member purchasing 3 sessions a week:
A Member can decide between the following contract lengths:
For contract lengths longer than a Rolling Contract Members will receive the following free weeks/months in addition to their contract minimum term:
The Free weeks/months are not included in the contract length.
The Free weeks/months, which members will not be billed for will be worked into the Members payment plan as follow:
A Pro Rata Month will not count towards a Members Minimum Contract term, unless at the discretion of CrossFit Putney. i.e if CrossFit Putney open on 6th of the month CrossFit Putney may agree that this month counts towards a minimum term length.
All Memberships have a minimum contract term as stated above, and Memberships will continue to a Rolling Month Contract after the minimum term has expired at the current cost of that membership.
The Member agrees by becoming a Member that payments will be automatically made on the due dates by credit or debit card with the payment details taken upon submission of the Founding Membership Submission.
CrossFit Putney offers a number of Member Benefits which are subject to the following conditions.

After paying 3 full months the Member will be automatically placed on a Monthly Rolling Contract with a 1 week credit note applied to the first month after their contract period.

Class Packages will become available to purchase when CrossFit Putney opens for people who will be training less frequently than the Founding Membership packages.
Membership is payable in advance, monthly as per the Membership type selected. Monthly fees will be debited on or around the 1st of each month. In the event that the Member falls into arrears in respect of any fees payable, all arrears must be settled before the Member can use the Club.
Monthly Membership fees may be increased at the discretion of and at any time by CrossFit Putney, to take effect after the Member's minimum term subject to at least one calendar month's written notice. Changes to pricing for new joiners may be made without notice.
Where the monthly payment method is Direct Debit, Members are required to provide CrossFit Putney with debit or credit card details as a secondary means of payment ("Payment Guarantee"). If any Membership payment remains outstanding beyond the due date, the Member's signature on the Payment Guarantee constitutes the Member's unconditional and irrevocable authority to debit the nominated card for the total amount due without notice to the Member.
Members on a Monthly Membership contract may cancel their Membership only after or with effect from the end of the minimum term, by giving one full calendar month's advance written notice, effective from the 1st of the following month. This should be done by emailing [email protected]
Members cannot cancel membership once they become a Member by Submitting their Founding Membership Submission and their upfront Founding Membership payment is taken or until their minimum contractual term has passed.
After the minimum contract length Memberships will automatically renew on to a Rolling Monthly Membership at the rate for that package at that time.
Any Member may apply for their Membership to be frozen or unfrozen by submitting a request to [email protected]
The minimum freeze period is one full calendar month, commencing on the 1st day of the month, with a maximum of six full consecutive calendar months.
A Member must request the freeze by the 20th day of the month prior to the requested freeze 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.
Freeze periods will not count towards a Member's contractual term, and will extend any applicable minimum term by the number of frozen months taken. Membership may not be frozen during the notice period of cancellation.
Members can only freeze or unfreeze their membership once in a 12 month period.
Freezing for reasons of illness, injury or pregnancy will be reviewed and leniency may be applied in relation to the fee and notice period; valid medical documentation must be attached to the request for this to be considered. If valid dated documentation is provided, a freeze due to medical/injury reasons may be backdated, providing no usage has been registered on the Member’s account. In such circumstances, no refund would be due and any fees paid would be credited to future Membership payments.
Any Member who requests to freeze their Membership under the Terms and Conditions will not be able to access the Club during the frozen period, either via their Membership or purchase of a Guest Pass. A Member must apply to unfreeze their Membership if wishing to use the Club during the frozen period. In order to unfreeze a Membership, a pro rata fee for the remainder of the then current month will be payable.

CrossFit Putney reserves the right to vary normal opening hours, temporarily remove the access to certain equipment, or to temporarily close certain areas of any Club from time to time without notice for various purpose including for cleaning, decorating, repairs, refurbishment, or for special functions and holidays.
All Club users must complete a health questionnaire (PARQ) and sign a waiver before entry. If any medical conditions are disclosed, the user must confirm that they have sought medical advice or wish to use the Club without doing so, and that they take full responsibility for any injury or health condition sustained whilst using the facilities arising from their medical condition.

CrossFit Putney advises all Club users to take medical advice prior to starting any exercise programme if they are in any doubt as to their ability to do so.
The Member warrants and represents upon their Founding Membership Application Form, and repeats such warranty upon each visit to the Club, that they are in good physical condition and know of no medical or other reason why they should not engage in any form of exercise, and that such exercise would not be detrimental to their health, safety, comfort or physical condition.
CrossFit Putney may terminate a Membership without notice and with immediate effect if:
Members are responsible for advising CrossFit Putney of changes to their personal information. Where CrossFit Putney is required to provide any written notification, CrossFit Putney will send the notice to the e-mail address on the Member Application Form or any updated e-mail address the Member has provided since joining. Any notice sent by CrossFit Putney in accordance with this clause will be deemed received by the Member two days from the date of sending.
CrossFit Putney takes the responsibility for looking after Members' personal information very seriously, and will only contact Members with information about the Club and CrossFit Putney services available.
In consideration for CrossFit Putney accepting an application for membership of the Gym, and for the applicant becoming and being a Member of the Gym, the Member agrees that:
CrossFit Putney may from time to time amend these Terms & Conditions, including the introduction of any additional terms and conditions, and will notify Members. Any changes will be effective immediately.
A completed Member Submission, these Terms & Conditions, and the PARQ make up a binding contract of Membership with CrossFit Putney.

The failure of CrossFit Putney to enforce any of its rights at any time for any period shall not be construed as a waiver of those rights.

Except where permitted by this Contract, neither CrossFit Putney nor the Member may alter the terms of this Contract without the express agreement of the other.
