PURCHASES AND PAYMENT
PAYMENT SUMMARY: Memberships have the option to be paid monthly, weekly, or monthly while bound to a 6 month contract.
Monthly memberships are paid in advance monthly, on the calendar date which the membership became activated, for the following month. Membership packages are billed in-full at the time of purchase. Regular monthly dues apply thereafter. Monthly membership payments shall be made on the day of the month in which the member becomes active, on a month-by-month basis, via automatic debited payment (credit card, or debit card). Weekly memberships are paid in advance weekly, on the day of the week in which the membership became activated, for the following week. Membership packages are billed in-full at the time of purchase. Regular weekly dues apply thereafter. Weekly membership payments shall be made on the day of the week in which the member becomes active, on a week-by-week basis, via automatic debited payment (credit card or debit card). Those who choose to be bound to a six month contract will be billed on the day of the month the member became activated, and on the same day of the month for five months after.

In the event of a declined credit card/debit card, the member’s account will be immediately suspended, pending the member updating their payment information and their membership dues paid in full. Let it be known that membership pricing is valid throughout the lifetime of one’s membership. Once a member joins, their price point is locked in for the lifetime of their membership. If a member leaves Maiden Resistance and chooses to rejoin, they will be charged according to current membership pricing, rather than their original membership cost. 

 

FREEZE POLICY: Members are not able to freeze their membership dues. Members must fully cancel their membership, while being aware that the pricing they had secured when they first joined may increase, resulting in their membership dues increasing when they choose to return to Maiden Resistance. 
 

CLASS ATTENDANCE POLICY

SIGN-IN: Clients are required to enter their scheduled class no later than 5-minutes after the scheduled start time. If a client does not enter their class by this time, it is considered a no-show and Maiden Resistance reserves the right to ask the client to attend a different scheduled class time, or leave the facility.. Classes begin promptly at their start time. It is the responsibility of the client to be ready to begin at the designated start time. There will be no holds for those who are running late, have given warning that they will be late, or those who are not ready to begin at the designated start time. It is encouraged that members treat participating in Maiden Resistance activities as a vital piece of self-care, therefore they should be completely present without distraction.

AGE RESTRICTION

Maiden Resistance is a fitness studio intended for women+ over the age of 18. Memberships are restricted to women+ over the age of 18, as is entrance into the facility. Minors may not accompany members for class or use of the facility, nor may they be present during class times.
