Open Gym Plus includes Barbell Club and Grip Club. Work with premier level barbells like Rogue Fitness and Texas Powerbar. Open Gym Plus includes both Barbell Club and Iron Mind Grip Club. Open Gym Plus vs Open Gym Open Gym Plus includes all the equipment taped off in red. For most members, our Open Gym Membership is sufficient. We have standard barbells (Rogue Ohio Bars and Bella Bars) are a big step up from the equipment you may have used at other gyms like Oneliftness or Gold’s Gym. Having a barbell club membership is only necessary if you want to use the equipment designated for barbell club members. How is our Barbell Club Different than Personal Training? Our senior coaches have a barbell club membership and they are allowed to select barbell club equipment for you. Either way, in a personal training session, you don’t need to worry about equipment, because your personal training will select the appropriate equipment. Barbell Club Membership Requirements You’ll need to have at least two years of powerlifting, Olympic lifting, or CrossFit experience. Take care of this equipment like it’s your own. Can I Still Do Powerlifting or Olympic Lifting at Sand and Steel without Barbell Club? Yes of course. You are welcome to do CrossFit, Powerlifting, or any other form of barbell work at Sand and Steel. Barbell club is designed for people that want to use the highest quality barbells and plates we offer. Which Barbells Are Available in Barbell Club? 2 Rogue Pyrros Women’s Stainless Steel Barbells.

While coaches may remind you, it is ultimately your responsibility to check in. If you do not check in, the session will be counted as a no-show, even if you were in fact present. It doesn’t matter if you sign the COVID-19 log either. If you do not check-in, you will be assigned a no-show fee. For the sake of any ambiguity, you should only check in to a session that you actually attend. From time to time we encounter a member that tries to bypass our check in policy by checking into a session that they do not actually attend. The first time this happens you’ll be issued a warning. The second time, you’ll be charged a $50 false check-in fee. Do not attempt to frustrate our check-in policy by checking into sessions that you did not attend. 5) Booking Policy A) Personal Training Personal Training Sessions may be booked 6 hours to 2 weeks in advance. Early Cancellation is 24 or more hours before your scheduled session. Early cancellations are done through the website or app. Early cancellations have no cancellation penalty. Late cancellations will result in you losing your session unless it’s for an emergency. B) Group Classes Group Classes may be booked 2 hours to 2 weeks in advance. Early Cancellation is 2 or more hours before your scheduled session. Early cancellations are done through the website or app. Early cancellations have no cancellation penalty.

Some are back of the gym only. Most of them are full gym. Just check the schedule for availability. You cannot come in early (e.g. at 9AM when you book 10AM) or leave late stay until 1PM when you book your session at 10AM.) It’s not complicated, book the time slot that you want to come into the gym. You only need 1-hour notice to book your session online. 6) Membership Early Cancellation Fees As long as you have at least one active membership, there is no early cancellation fee. So if you are simply canceling your membership so that you can purchase a new one, you will not be charged a fee. If that’s what you are doing, be sure you purchase your new membership before submitting the Membership Cancellation form. Or you can use the Membership Change Form to change one membership into another. Cancellation fee is $100 if you cancel within 60 days of your enrollment date; Cancellation Fee is $50 if you cancel within 120 days of your enrollment date; Cancellation Fee is $0 if you cancel after 121 days of your enrollment date. 7) Membership Autorenew & Cancellation Policies Unless your purchase a Pack-based membership, all memberships renew until you cancel your membership. There is no turning off or disabling autorenew. Memberships can only be canceled by filling out the Membership Cancellation Form. You cannot cancel your membership by emailing the staff or owners, telling a coach in person, sending a text, calling on the phone, etc. Cancellation requests are processed 10AM-8PM EST. Cancellation requests received after 8PM EST will be processed the next business day. Timing Your Cancellation Properly. If you are on a membership with a limited number of sessions (e.g. Personal Training 4 or Combo 8), you will want to wait until you attend your last session and then submit this form once you attend the class. Your membership will automatically renew at 10PM if you do not cancel it beforehand. Early Membership Renewal. Our booking software is configured such that your membership will automatically renew at the earlier of: at 10PM on the day you use your last session or at the scheduled time period (e.g. one week, four weeks, or one month, etc. as the case may be) So if you use your combo 8 membership in only 20 days, your membership will renew on day 21. If you only use 7 of your 8 “combo 8” sessions, your membership will renew in one month. Keep in mind that unused sessions do not rollover. You can cancel a membership at any time and for any reason. Cancellations are immediate. You cannot cancel a membership for a future date or after a certain number of sessions are used. If you have any unused sessions, you will lose them. If you have booked any future sessions, they will be unbooked and canceled. We do not prorate or credit back unused memberships. Cancellation requests are processed 10AM-8PM EST. Cancellation requests received after 8PM EST will be processed the next business day. 8) Accidental Renewal / Refunds Although we have explained how our autorenewal process works, on occasion, some members forget the above information and request a refund after their membership has renewed. If you request a refund after your renewal has been processed, you’ll be presented with an option to apply 100% of the renewal amount as a store credit (which doesn’t expire and can be used to purchase a future membership) or receive a refund minus a 20 % administration fee to cover the accounting, administrative, and credit card transaction fees involved with your return. Processing membership returns is very time consuming and expensive, which is why most gyms don’t offer refunds for any reason whatsoever. 9) Late Cancellation Form & Policy If you would need to cancel your reservation within the time window, please review our Late Cancellation Policy and fill out the requisite late cancellation form. 10) Late Reservation Form & Policy If you would like to reserve within the time window, please review our Late Reservation Policy and fill out the requisite late cancellation form. 11) SSF Standard Sick Policy Policies When You Are Sick: To protect all clients and trainers, we won’t train you if you have visible symptoms of being sick. It doesn’t matter whether you are contagious or not. Exception: you have symptoms and a Dr.’s note that says you are not contagious. It’s impossible to sterilize every surface you might touch. Because we have a responsibility to our other clients, we will turn you away if you come to the gym sick or display any symptoms of being sick. You might say, “I’m not sick… it’s just allergies.” If it’s just allergies, take some Claritin and you won’t have any symptoms. Symptoms = no workout. 12) Time Extensions We allow members to request an extension of time on Personal Training 5 Pack and Personal Training Pack 10 only. Requests for extension of time for other membership types will not be honored. Sessions do not Rollover over on Personal Training Memberships or Combo Memberships. 13) Hold Form & Policy If you would like to put your membership on Hold, please review our Membership Hold Policy and fill out the requisite hold form. Holds cost $20 unless you meet one of the exceptions (injury, illness, or military orders.) 14) Open Gym Rules The Open Gym Rules available at https://www.sandandsteelfitness.com/product/open-gym/ apply to this agreement.

Please see our social distancing article for more information. 18) Photography Dawn and Paul, occasionally take photos and videos of clients in the gym. We use these photos for marketing and fostering an environment of positivity for all clients. We also share the photos with you during the session to make sure they like them. Photos that coaches take are uploaded to our smugmug account: https://sandandsteelfitness.smugmug.com/ We take care not to publish unflattering pictures, we’ll provide you a copy of the pictures, and make sure you look good to inspire others. If you don’t want your picture taken, just remind your coach during the session. 19) Cancellations of Memberships Cancellation of Memberships: from time to time, Sand and Steel Fitness discontinues certain types of memberships. Generally, we cancel membership based on changes in the economy and/or global member preferences. We may, at our discretion, cancel your membership at any time. If we cancel your membership, we will determine the value of the unused portion of your membership (by the remaining time in the month and/or number of sessions.) We place the value of this unused portion into your account as an account credit. Account credits do not expire, and they may be used to purchase any membership type. You will be emailed with screenshots of your account so that you understand you are being adequately compensated for the unused portion of your account. 20) General Items Merger Clause: I understand that this Agreement and the Informed Consent document are the final, complete and exclusive statement of the agreement between the Sand & Steel and the Client with respect to the transactions contemplated herein, and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements with respect to the subject matter hereof are merged herein.
