Predictive Fitness makes no representations or warranties as to the conduct of Members or their compatibility with any current or future Members. We do however recommend that if you choose to meet or exchange personal information with any Member of Predictive Fitness (including any Coach) then you should take it upon yourself to do an appropriate background check.
There will be no refunds or guarantees of reimbursements for Services unless otherwise specified in writing by Predictive Fitness. There will be no retroactive termination of Services. Terminations will only be effective for stopping future charges.
If you are a Coach, you understand and acknowledge that your use of the Services and your provision of coaching Services may involve additional fees or compensation (including for payment processing), in each case which may be established by Predictive Fitness from time to time through its coaching program terms and conditions (such terms and conditions, the “Coaching Terms”).
