All other refunds will be returned within 10 days of the date on which I gave notice of cancellation

MEMBER OBLIGATIONS. This Agreement is a legally binding obligation for which I am financially
responsible. If I have a prepaid membership, I will automatically become a month-to-month member after
the term ends, and will be billed the then-current monthly membership rate unless I provide notice of
cancellation. If I have a term membership, my membership will automatically renew after the term ends and
I will continue to be billed according to my regular billing schedule unless I provide notice of cancellation.
I understand that I must notify the Club of account changes at least five days prior to the billing cycle in
order for such changes to take effect. I understand I am responsible for updating my address and contact
information. I agree not to conduct any kind of commercial or business activity in the Club and will not act
as a personal trainer for anyone within the Club.

Home Club Memberships: I understand that my Home Club is the 9Round® Club that I initially joined. A
9Round membership only allows me to access my Home Club. I understand that a 9Round membership is
not a reciprocal membership and I will not have access to any other 9Round® locations.
Minimum Term: I acknowledge that for month-to-month memberships, the “Minimum Term” is 30 days. For
prepaid or Minimum Term memberships, the “Minimum Term” is the period specified in the membership
plan; i.e., 3 months, 6 months or 12 months.

Month-to-Month or Minimum Term Memberships: I understand that this agreement is a legally binding
obligation for which I am financially responsible and that this is an ongoing membership agreement. I agree
that, if I fail to pay when a payment is due, I must immediately pay the amount owing. I understand that
I will be charged each month as set forth in the Payment Authorisation form and that these payments
will continue until 30 days after I submit a written notice of cancellation of my membership to the Club
as instructed in this Agreement. I agree that I am bound by the membership payment terms and unpaid
account balance due upon cancellation.

Pre-Paid Memberships: I understand that account / credit card details and photo ID must be provided
as a security. I agree that this account / credit card will be debited in the event of a fine being incurred. I
acknowledge and agree that the early cancellation fee for this membership is 50% of the fees that have
been paid calculated on a pro-rata basis. I understand that all refunds will be by credit or direct deposit into
a nominated account and that there are no cash refunds.

Corporate Membership Plan: If “Corporate” is the membership plan listed on the first page of this
agreement, I agree that if the corporate plan is canceled, I may be liable to have an increase in membership
dues to the then current price for an individual membership.

CANCELLATION. After the end of my cooling-off period, I understand that I may also cancel a membership
When no cancellation fee will apply: The Club doesn’t keep its end of the deal; I become subject to medical
incapacity; the Club makes changes to this agreement that adversely affects me; I become entitled to do so
under consumer legislation;

When a cancellation fee may apply: I relocate or simply wish to cancel for any other reason. I may cancel
my membership by delivering or mailing written notice to the Club. I understand that if this is a periodic
Agreement, I may be billed for up to 30 Days after I cancel my membership and will have access to the
Club during that time. If this is a periodic fixed term Agreement, an early cancellation fee of 50% of the
membership fees for the balance of the fixed term must be paid to the Club.

If I owe the club any monies under the Membership Agreement and my failure to pay such monies causes
the Club to enter into debt recovery process, then I will indemnify the Club in relation to all costs and
disbursements incurred (including but not limited to administration fees, legal costs on a solicitor and client
basis, collection agency costs, and bank fees).

1. If the Club doesn’t keep its end of the deal: I understand that I can cancel my membership by written
notice if the Club breaches any of its obligations under this agreement and has not remedied that breach
within a reasonable time after I have given the Club a written request that the Club do so. No fees will be
applicable for cancelling in accordance with this clause apart from, to the extent not impacted by the Club’s
breach, the joining fee, membership fees for the time that I have been a member calculated on a pro-rata
basis and any outstanding fees for other services already supplied to me.
2. I understand that I can cancel for medical reasons: I am able to end my membership by telling the Club in
writing if I cannot exercise for the remainder of the Agreement’s term due to my death, illness or a physical
incapacity and I or my estate produce supporting documentation to the Club’s reasonable satisfaction.
In that event, I will only be charged the joining fee, membership fees for the time I have been a member
calculated on a pro-rata basis and any outstanding fees for other services already supplied to me.
3. If my membership is no longer convenient: Otherwise, I understand that I can end my membership
during the Minimum Term with immediate effect at any time by simply telling the Club in writing. The Club
understands that circumstances change and so I do not need to give any reason. I understand that the Club
will consider any request to transfer my membership and may agree to the transfer at the Club’s reasonable
choosing subject to satisfaction of reasonable eligibility conditions and my payment of the transfer fee. The
Club will never charge a cancellation fee if it agrees to a transfer to someone who is not currently a Member
and they have paid the standard joining fee. In any case if my membership ends during the minimum term
under this paragraph, I agree that I will be liable for the joining fee, membership fees for the time I was a
member calculated on a pro-rata basis, any outstanding fees for other services already supplied to me
and, except as mentioned above, the cancellation fee for Minimum Term or Pre-Paid Memberships. The
cancellation fee applied will be calculated at 50% of the monthly fees remaining after the notice period. All
refunds will be by credit or direct deposit into a nominated account – there are no cash refunds.
4. When can the Club end my membership? In addition to any other rights the Club has under this
Agreement, I understand that the Club can terminate my membership by written notice to me if I fail to act
in accordance with any obligation under this agreement or any other agreement between me and the Club
and, if capable of remedy, I do not remedy the failure within a reasonable time of the Club giving me written
notice requiring me to do so. However, I acknowledge that the Club will not seek to end my membership
in this way if I have failed to make a payment and the Club is also in breach of a material condition of this Agreement.

If the Club cancels this Agreement under this paragraph I agree that I will be liable for the
joining fee, membership fees for the time I was a member, the cancellation fee and any other fees payable
for further fitness services already supplied. I acknowledge that on rare occasions the Club may cancel a
membership by written notice to the member without the need to give a reason. If the Club cancels my
membership under this paragraph I agree that I will only be liable for the membership fees for the time I was
a member and any other fees for other fitness services already provided. I acknowledge that no cancellation
fee will apply and the Club will refund my joining fee together with the sum of $50. I agree that this payment
is my sole entitlement to compensation for cancellation of my membership under this paragraph.
MINIMUM AGE. I acknowledge that generally all membership holders of 9Round must be a minimum of
16 years of age. All minors under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian co-sign the membership
agreement and acknowledgment of indemnity waiver. The member induction form must be completed by a
parent or guardian and the child.
OTHER FEE INCREASES. I agree that the Club may increase my membership fees or any other fees at any
time. I understand that the Club will make a fair effort to tell me at least 14 days before by writing to me
at the last address I provided (which may be an email address). Where the Club has done so, I authorise
9Round to increase any debits from my nominated account in line with this increase.
BUSINESS CHANGES. I understand that the Club Owner may sell or otherwise transfer the conduct of
the Club in the future to a third party, and such sale or transfer may include the right to receive payments
in association with the Payment Authorisation I have signed or will sign in connection with my membership
(“Change of Business Ownership”). In the event that a Change of Business Ownership occurs, I
acknowledge and agree that I may be notified of the Change of Business Ownership by email or a notice
posted in reception area of the Club. I further agree that as a result of the Change of Business Ownership
and the issuing of the notice, my payment arrangements will automatically be updated.

MEMBERSHIP FREEZE. I have the right to freeze my membership for up to three months per year, during
which time I will not be charged standard membership dues. I must provide written notice at least five days
in advance of my next billing cycle. I will incur a processing charge for each frozen month. For prepaid or
term agreements, the membership will be extended for a period equal to the freeze period. A membership
cannot be cancelled during a freeze period.

FACILITIES AND SERVICES. The Club reserves the right at any time to delete, discontinue, repair or replace
the facility equipment without any effect on this Agreement. The Club may be closed for up to two weeks
each year for maintenance purposes.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. I agree that, unless controlling legal authority requires otherwise, any award
by an arbitrator or a court is limited to actual compensatory damages. I agree that, specifically, neither an
arbitrator or a court can award either party any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, even
if one party told the other party that they might suffer these.

NO LIABILITY FROM THE FRANCHISOR. I acknowledge that the Club is an independent business
proprietor that is a franchisee of Lift Brands New Zealand Ltd, Company number:2336145
NZBN:9429031851084. The facilities and services will be provided directly to me by the Club and not the
franchisor, and neither the franchisor or any other Clubs are liable for each other’s acts or omissions.

SEVERABILITY AND WAIVER. If a court finds that any part of any term of this Agreement is or becomes
illegal, void or unenforceable, that part is deleted and this does not invalidate the rest of this Agreement. If
the Club does not enforce its rights under this Agreement at any time, it does not mean that it may not do
so on future occasions.

MISCELLANEOUS. This is the whole Agreement between the parties with respect to the Membership Terms
and Conditions and supersedes any prior understandings or agreements of the parties whether written
or oral, express or implied. This Agreement may not be amended or modified except in a writing signed
by both parties. I understand that only authorized members or guests may access the Club and I am not
permitted to share my access card with anyone else.

TEXT MESSAGES/EMAILS. I understand that I may receive text messages and emails from the Licensor or

ASSUMPTION OF RISK OF INJURY AND WAIVER OF CLAIMS. I acknowledge that 9Round® locations are
unsupervised fitness centres and there is possible danger connected with any physical activity, including
the dangers of physical injury and death. I assume all risks of injury, and waive all rights to pursue money

my use of any equipment, machinery, or facilities in any 9Round® location or 9Round® sponsored event.
On behalf of myself and my successors and assigns, I agree to indemnify and will hold harmless Licensor,
its subsidiaries, its affiliates, its franchisees, and all of their owners, employees, agents, successors and
assigns from and against any loss or damage that may be sustained by me or any person entering the

Assumption of Risk of Injury and Waiver of Claims clause in this Agreement on their behalf. I also agree to
defend and indemnify the Club, the Licensor, its subsidiaries, its affiliates, its franchisees or its officers and
employees to the fullest extent permitted by law for any claim brought by my minor child against them. I
also promise to pay any financial obligation incurred by my minor child for any reason and acknowledge that

of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times while in a 9Round® Club.

USE OF CLUBS. I agree that my use of any 9Round® Club is subject to the terms of this agreement and
any membership agreement I sign at the Club. I will not allow any non-member to use my access card. I
may bring a guest during staffed hours only and only after arranging for a pass with Club staff. I understand
and agree that I will be responsible for any claims, damages and charges made by or caused by an
unauthorized guest I allow in any 9Round® Club.

PHYSICAL CONDITION AND NO MEDICAL ADVICE. I confirm that I am in good physical condition and
have no medical reason or impairment that would prevent me from my intended use of 9Round® facilities.

any medical advice. If I have any health or medical concerns now or after I join, I will discuss them with my
doctor before using the facilities.

is dependent upon accurate health and fitness profiling. I agree to disclose to the Club all relevant personal

are no refunds provided for access cards when I cancel my membership. In being provided an access card,

right to charge an administration fee for the provision of a replacement access card. This fee may vary from
Club to Club.
• If I do not have my access card with me, this will more than likely mean that I will not be able to
access the Club during non-staffed hours, nor should I expect any other member to let me into the Club as
this may be a breach of the Guests provision of the agreement relating to their membership.
