1. THE SERVICE
Guided Fitness is designed to help users (each a “Trainee”) who are interested in fitness training services, classes, and related activities (collectively, the “Activities”) find information about, and communicate with, individuals and venues providing fitness training services (each a “Trainer” or “Fitness Venue Provider”). Our Site is an online venue through which users find and learn about each other and, if they wish, arrange for obtaining and providing fitness related services. You acknowledge that Guided Fitness does not provide fitness training services or fitness facilities and does not serve as a Trainer or Fitness Venue Provider. Guided Fitness’ Services may be used by you to request and schedule personal fitness related services with Trainers or Fitness Venue Providers (collectively “Providers”), but you agree that Guided Fitness has no responsibility or liability to you related to any personal fitness related services provided to you by Providers other than as expressly set forth in these Terms. Guided Fitness is not involved in the actual face-to-face contact between Trainees and Providers. We have no control over the conduct of the Providers or the truth or accuracy of the information they post on the Site or provide through the Services. We may provide suggested or optional default terms for transactions among Trainees, Trainers and Fitness Venue Providers, or otherwise between users. To the extent we do, and you utilize or agree to such terms, this does not make us a party to any transaction between Trainees, Trainers or Fitness Venue Providers, or between other users of the Site. Any suggested or default terms we provide are for users’ convenience only and do not constitute legal or other advice. Nor do they constitute any sort of guarantee or warranty regarding the Service, or the accuracy of any information implied by, or compliance with the terms or the proposed transaction. You should review all terms carefully and seek your own advice or counsel with respect to the meaning or consequences of any terms. Guided Fitness has the right to refuse access to anyone in its sole discretion, and may terminate your account at any time, including for violations of the Acceptable Use Policy described below and other Policies published by Guided Fitness from time to time.
