OBJECTIVE: The objective of the gym is to provide and make available to members only health and recreation facilities and to promote and encourage physical fitness and well-being.
MEMBERSHIP: When an application for membership is accepted and relevant subscription fees have been paid, the individual will become a Member and will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by the Quay Fitness Ltd Terms and Conditions. Absolute discretion is granted to the Management to reject any application for Membership without providing a reason for doing so and any subscription monies received will be returned. Management in its absolute discretion and without ascribing any reasons may terminate the Membership of any Member, in the event of which a refund of any fees shall be at the single judgement of Quay Fitness Ltd. In the event of a serious breach of the Terms and Conditions, no refund will be made. Management may refuse to renew the membership of any Member without giving any reasons. Membership is non-transferable and non-refundable. All requests for membership should be made by completing a membership application form and returning it to the Manager. The Subscription Rate for all types of membership is determined by Quay Fitness Ltd and will be subject to regular review. Any discounts given will cease once membership has expired or has been cancelled and standard rates will apply thereafter. Discounts are subject to regular review. There will be no refunds for non-usage of the Club’s facilities. Memberships paid by Standing Order will be deemed cancelled if 2 monthly payments are missed. It is the responsibility of the member to ensure membership fees are paid in full and on time. If a membership paid by Standing Order has been cancelled it is the responsibility of the member to cancel their standing order payments following the one-month notice period; any payments sent after this date will not be refunded.
INDUCTION: Members will be required to undertake a full Gym Induction before they can use the facilities or waive such right to induction on the Membership Application Form, outlined below.
INDUCTION WAIVER DECLARATION: All new members are entitled to receive a free gym induction which will show you how to safely use all machines. However, should you feel you do not need this service, please tick the gym induction waiver declaration on the Membership Application Form: I understand that exercise can be physically demanding and if performed incorrectly can cause serious harm. I have opted to not attend the gym induction offered to me and assume all liability for any possible injury caused by the exercises I choose to perform. I acknowledge that I am physically fit and free from any illnesses that may be aggravated by performing exercise. I am a regular user of gyms and I am familiar with most gym equipment. I will not use any equipment that I am unfamiliar with or perform any exercises that I am unsure of. I am aware that I can ask Trainers in the future for assistance with how to use any of the equipment.
SUBSCRIPTIONS: The Member shall pay the monthly, 6 monthly, annual or other fees upfront. The Member shall where applicable pay the required monthly subscription by Standing Order. All membership subscriptions are payable in advance. Where a member changes their membership type or payment or their membership is renewed at renewal point, they may be asked to complete a new Application Form or their original signed Application remains in force. Quay Fitness Ltd shall determine the membership charges for use of the facilities; these may vary at the discretion of management.
MEMBERSHIP FREEZING: Membership can be frozen when ill, injured, or pregnant. One month’s notice must be given in writing and freezing of a Membership may be for a minimum of 1 month or a maximum of 6 months. There is a one-off fee for freezing of £10 per membership, payable at the time of application for freezing. Memberships may only be frozen once in any 12 month period.
CANCELLATION NOTICE: One calendar months’ notice is required to cancel membership; by definition one calendar months’ notice is a full month following the next payment date of any standing order due. Fully paid members will not receive any refund if they choose to cancel their membership early. There will be no refunds for non-usage of the Club’s facilities. If a membership paid by Standing Order has been cancelled it is the responsibility of the member to cancel their standing order payments following the one-month notice period; any payments sent after this date will not be refunded. Quay Fitness Ltd may vary the cancellation notice rules at its discretion.

Gym access cards/fobs are issued to members strictly for their own, personal use; the cards/fobs must not under any circumstances be shared with other persons. Members must not let other persons in through the side entrance; only persons with their own individual access cards/fobs can use this entrance and all persons must sign themselves in using their access card/fob. Exit the gym using the front door, ensuring it fully shuts behind you when you leave. Misuse of the gym access cards/fobs will be considered a serious breach of conduct and action will be taken by management. Lost access cards/fobs must be reported immediately. There will be a £5 fee for replacement cards/fobs. Access cards/fobs should be presented at the renewal of a membership whereby they can be extended. Access cards/fobs must be returned upon expiry of a gym membership. Access cards/fobs will not be issued for day or week memberships. Access cards/fobs remain the property of Quay Fitness Ltd.
