1: My commitment to you
All information You give me will be kept in confidence and subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (see separate policy). Your personal details and medical information will not be made available to third parties unless permission to do so is granted by you.
Using my judgment and experience, I will suggest certain exercises and other lifestyle advice that I believe will help you achieve your personal goals, but if at any time you have specific requests please tell me so I can try to accommodate them.
I intend to work with you within the scope of my knowledge and competencies as a registered exercise professional (CIMPSA). Therefore when I believe it is in your best interests to see another health professional, I will refer you appropriately.
1.4 If I (the trainer) cancels a Session or runs late.
Unforeseen circumstances may arise which require our Sessions to be rescheduled. In this event the following policy will apply:
1.4.1 If I am forced to cancel a training Session I will:
Provide you with as much notice as possible, and
make up the Session at a time that is convenient to you and within the Initial Term of this agreement. If the Session cannot be so rescheduled then I will reimburse you the cost of the Session cancelled.
1.4.2 If I run late in starting our Session I will extend the Session time accordingly or make it up at a future date, whichever is most convenient to you.
1.5 Cancellation of this Agreement
While very unlikely. I reserve the right to cancel this Agreement at any time and for any reasonable reason. Any unused but paid for Sessions will be re-imbursed to the Client.
2: Your responsibilities to me
2.1 Disclosure of information.
Please disclose all health information as requested at our Discovery Meeting and keep me updated and informed of any changes to your health status. This includes all medical conditions; physical and mental, injuries, allergies, and medication you are taking. If necessary, you may need to seek clearance from your doctor before participation in the Programme I recommend.
2.2 Accepting potential risks.
Whilst for most people exercise is hugely positive with many health benefits, there remains some risk that I require you to be aware of and for you to sign the informed consent and disclaimer that I will provide. The client will communicate any discomforts, pain or concerns experienced during or arising from a session.
2.3 If you (the client) cancel or run late.
2.3.1 If you cancel your session with less than 24 hours’ notice, or fail to show your session will be forfeit (no refunds or re-booking) and no charitable donation will be made
2.3.2 If you cancel your session with notice with more than 24 hours then I will rearrange.
2.3.3 If you (the client) are late to a session, I will do my best to get the most out of the remaining time left in the session as I may be unable to run over time due to previously arranged client commitments.
2.4 Other terms.
PLEASE NOTE: In the event that you need to reschedule or you are running late for a session, please contact me ASAP by
Option 1: Texting or calling and leaving a message
Option 2: Emailing me at
2.5 Being prepared for your session.
To get the most out of your session I recommend the following:
• Where appropriate have a small snack or light meal two or three hours before your session
• Be sure you are well hydrated and avoid alcohol prior to training
• If you are feeling unwell before your Session please contact me
• Bring a small towel and water bottle to your Session
• Wear appropriate clothing and footwear (ask me if you are unsure)
• Be ready at the appointed time
If the Session is taking place at your premises then I ask for you to please ensure that, so far as it is reasonable to do so, that the environment is safe for both Trainer and Client.
2.6 Communication and Commitment
While I can give you the tools and encouragement to reach your goals, ultimately you will need to assume responsibility for making the required changes. I can best help you with this process if you keep me fully informed of any issues that arise for you and if you have any questions or concerns whatsoever please don’t hesitate to voice them with me.
3. Pricing and fee options
The nature of the bespoke service I provide requires a tailored approach to pricing and fees. By entering this Agreement you are initially only agreeing to pay for the Programme Preparation as described and set out in 3.1 below. Clauses 3.2 and 3.3 are optional and will apply after You confirm your agreement in writing or by conduct i.e. attending a second Session. This means that before committing to the programmed Sessions (and it's substantive cost), you will have experienced one Session with me and have seen the Programme.
3.1 Programme Preparation and first training session.
3.1.1 There is currently no charge for the Discovery Meeting
3.1.2 After the Discovery Meeting, when we have agreed your goals, I will prepare an outline bespoke training Programme. There will be a flat fee payable for preparation of this Programme which includes the first training Session and any subsequent amendments to the Programme.
Flat Fee for Training Programme and first training Session ( Exercise only) £ ………………
Flat Fee for Training Programme and first training session (Exercise & Nutrition) £…………………….
3.1.2 The flat fee is to be paid to the Trainer after the Discovery Meeting but before the first training Session.
3.2 Programme fee
3.2.1 At the Discovery Meeting we will agree your goals, the number and frequency of the Sessions, and I will provide an indication of the Programme fee. The Programme fee will be confirmed for your agreement after the first training Session and notified to you in writing together with details of the Programme.
3.2.2 The Programme fee will include a sum for the training sessions and may also include an allowance for regular reviews. A discount for multiple sessions may be applied.
3.2.3 The Programme fee will be divided by the number of weeks of the Initial Term and that sum will be paid on a weekly basis in advance of the first Session scheduled for that week. It is suggested that this should be done by bank transfer ideally by direct debit. Failure to pay in advance will remove the obligation for me to deliver the Session.
3.2.4 Amendments to the Programme
If you agree and scheduling allows additional training Sessions can be added to the Programme. Any additional sessions must be paid in advance . Current prices subject to a discretionary discount for volume are:
1 Hour training session
if training location is within 20 mins car travel of GU47 0ZZ - £65
if training location is more that 20 mins car travel of GU47 0ZZ - £75
3.2.5 Commitment from you to the Programme is important to achieve your goals, therefore if after the Programme commences you require any amends including a reduction of time and/or intensity to the Programme and a proportionate reduction in the fee then this will be solely at the Trainers discretion. Reasons for a reduction and or reimbursement would include but are not limited to illness , incapacity or compassionate reasons.
3.3 Maintenance Retainer
3.3.1 Before the completion of the Initial Term I may offer, for your acceptance, an ongoing service to ensure you maintain the progress you have made.
3.3.2 If offered you can decide which of the following options is most suitable for you. Both options require a 6 month commitment and are dependant on a monthly direct debit to be set up.
188.8.131.52 Option 1 – light touch
One telephone review with you every 2 weeks - £25 p.m. or
184.108.40.206 Option 2 – more involved / loyalty price
