CANCELLATIONS: All cancellations made by clients must be made with no less than 24 hours notice. If a client does not let the trainer know of a cancellation BEFORE the 24-hour period, the client will be billed for that session. Exceptions to this rule will be made on a case by case basis depending on the circumstances of the cancellation, however it is up to the trainer to decide if a cancellation will be made up or not. Late cancellations for early morning appointments (7am or earlier) no matter what the circumstances will always be billed. This is because the trainer will have gotten up at a VERY EARLY hour for the workout not having known the night before that the client was going to cancel. If the trainer must cancel within the 24-hour period, the trainer will make every effort to reschedule at a convenient time for both client and trainer. Clients will always receive a text the night before an appointment at which time the trainer must hear back from the client before 9:00pm to confirm. If the trainer doesn't hear from the client after this text she can assume the session is a late cancel. Please be ON TIME for all appointments. If the client is 10 or more minutes late to a session that session will be considered a late cancellation and counts as a missed session.
TIMELINESS: All purchased sessions must be used in CONSECUTIVE weeks with no major brakes in training. My goal is to get you working out REGULARLY with no interruptions. For example, if you purchase 8 sessions with me for twice a week then all sessions must be completed within that 4-week period. If you purchase 8 sessions with me for once a week then all sessions must be completed within 8 weeks. Exceptions to this will be made on a case by case basis and completely up to the trainer to decide.
Current clients wanting to renew more sessions must submit payment to Mary on the LAST day of the current session in order to have their spot saved for future sessions.
BEING ON TIME: The trainer will always text clients the night before as a reminder for the next day's session. Please be ON TIME for your workout. Sometimes things come up and cause a delay or an unforeseen circumstance and the trainer will work with that depending on the situation. Please understand that if a client is late for our appointment I may or may not have time to extend our designated time into the next hour. If a client arrives 10 minutes late or more for our workout the trainer has the right to consider that a LATE CANCEL and it will still count as a session. If a client is CONSISTENTLY late getting here to the workout, the trainer has the right to cancel all further sessions with the client and will refund their money. If the trainer feels the client is demonstrating low motivation, lack of discipline, a bad attitude, or not following the workout prescription and nutrition, she will cancel all further sessions with this client and refund their money.
PAYMENTS: There is an 8 session minimum for training which must be made up front. Once a payment has been made, THERE ARE NO REFUNDS. I accept personal checks or Paypal. No cash please.
GROUP TRAINING: If you are working as a group and one person can not make a session it is not the trainer's responsibility to make up that session with each person in the group individually. Be sure that when you commit to a time as a group that it works for everyone. In group training it is up to the clients to listen to the coach's instruction without chit chat or interruptions. If the trainer has to repeat herself multiple times, that client will be asked to leave the current workout in the best interests of the other participants.
CELL PHONES: I want to make the most of each training session without distraction so please do not bring cell phones to any workout area. Phones or electronics brought to the workout area must be silenced and put in my phone locker and given back once the workout is over. I will insert a break if you need to go to your car and check it. It's only 55 minutes of your day, so make your workout time the first priority. Please make arrangements for your kids, work, etc, before you get here with an alternate number so you can be fully present for our workout. If we are at a park we will most likely be running so you will need to leave your phone in your car. I do not let clients run while holding their phone as this promotes bad running form and is a safety issue. My goal is for you to give yourself an hour of UNINTERRUPTED focused attention to your workout.
Clients must understand that they will get from my workouts what they put in and need to fully understand that they should not expect noticeable results if they are less than 90% compliant to BOTH exercise and nutrition together.
Due to liability policy children under the age of 13 are not permitted in the workout area. Please do not bring pets or food to the workout area.
(PAR-Q: SECTION 1 OF 2)
Regular physical activity is fun and healthy, and increasingly more people are starting to become more active every day. Being more active is very safe for most people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming much more physically active.
If you are planning to become much more physically active than you are now, start by answering the seven questions in the box below. If you are between the ages of 15 and 69, the PAR-Q will tell you if you should check with your doctor before you start. If you are over 69 years of age, and you are not used to being very active, check with your doctor. Common sense is your best guide when you answer these questions. Please read the questions carefully and answer honestly.
Choose YES or NO for each of the following questions:
(PAR-Q: SECTION 2 OF 2)
If you answered YES to one or more questions from above:
Talk to your doctor by phone or in person BEFORE you start becoming much more physically active or BEFORE you have a fitness appraisal. Tell your doctor about the PAR-Q and which questions you answered YES.
*You may be able to do any activity you want – as long as you start slowly and build up gradually. Or, you may need to restrict your activities to those which are safe for you. Talk with your doctor about the kinds of activities you wish to participate in and follow his/her advice.
If you answered NO to all questions:
If you answered NO honestly to all PAR-Q questions, you can be reasonably sure that you can:
*Start becoming much more physically active – begin slowly and build up gradually. This is the safest and easiest way to go.
*Take part in a fitness appraisal – this is an excellent way to determine your basic fitness so that you can plan the best way for you to live actively.
Delay becoming much more active:
*If you are not feeling well because of a temporary illness such as a cold or a fever – wait until you feel better; or
*If you are or may be pregnant – talk to your doctor before you start becoming more active.
Please note: if your health changes so that you then answer yes to any of the above health questions, tell your health or fitness professional. Ask whether you should change your physical activity plan.
