Below are some important details relating to your membership:
Supervision by Staff
I understand that outside of stipulated staffed hours the centre will be unstaffed and no staff will be onsite to offer any assistance or exercise direction or first aid treatment.
I acknowledge that during unstaffed times there will be no monitoring of the safety or equipment of facilities, should an item fail, be damaged or some other risk eventuate.
I have been shown how to access the centre during unstaffed hours.
I have been advised of fire exit locations to be used in the event of an emergency requiring evacuation.
I have been shown the location of duress pendants and alarms.
I understand that I must wear an alarmed duress pendant at all times when I am in the centre alone.
I accept failure to return a duress pendant to the designated area will result in a $100 replacement fee being charged.
I accept vandalism made to the pendant including but not limited to writing on or engraving will result in a $100 replacement fee I understand that the duress pendant or alarm shall only be activated in the event of an emergency and for any false activation I will be charged the associated callout fee by security and emergency services.
I have been shown the location of the first aid kit, fire extinguishers, emergency exits and assembly area.
I have been shown and understand that I am required to use the safety features on exercise equipment during unstaffed hours.
I have been advised and accept that when using heavy weights that I should ensure a spotter is available. Health I agree by signing this agreement I represent that I am in good physical condition and have no reason or impairment that might prevent me from using the equipment at the Centre.
I accept I repeat this representation each time I use the facility.
I acknowledge BlueFit strongly advises to take expert advice prior to commencing membership or prior to commencing a new exercise program. I will monitor my physical condition at all times and exercise at a level that is appropriate to my health and any medical advice I have obtained. BlueFit staff are not medically trained and cannot assess whether an individual is in a fit state to participate in physical activity.
Use of Facility and Equipment
I am aware that negligent damage or loss of my after-hours access fob resulting in the requirement for a replacement will incur a $60 replacement fee.
I understand and accept that I must return my after-hours access fob upon cancelling my membership. If I cannot provide my access fob upon cancelling I will be charged a $60 replacement fee before my membership cancellation can occur.
I am aware that a towel is required to be used at each workout, no denim clothing is to be worn in the gym and that appropriate footwear is required. I accept if I enter the gym without a towel, wearing denim or without appropriate footwear I will be under CCTV recording and this could cause my Unsupervised Gym Access access to be ceased.
I accept the practice of not sharing equipment with other gym users is not considered fair or reasonable behaviour.
I accept as a BlueFit member I will show respect for all BlueFit members and equipment at all times. Failure to comply may result in the suspension or cancellation of my membership.
I accept that I will be liable for replacement or repair charges for any damages I cause to equipment, fittings or other BlueFit property whilst I am in the centre.
I am aware towels are to be placed on equipment when in use and disinfectant spray bottles and paper towels are to be used to wipe down equipment after use.
I understand and accept I am not permitted to allow entry to the centre to any person during unstaffed hours under any circumstance.
I accept I will be charged $250 non-compliance fee and risk termination of my membership for allowing unauthorised entry to the centre.
I understand that I must only access the gym and change room facilities during unstaffed times. Any attempted or actual access of any other areas including but not limited to: the gym floor staff workstation, group fitness studio or pool hall, will result in a $250 non-compliance fee and risk termination of my membership.
I accept that my membership may be suspended or cancelled if I have membership fees owing. I may bring a guest to the centre during regular staffed hours for which a casual entry fee will be paid. I understand that casual visits are not permitted during unstaffed hours.
I understand that the disabled access bathroom will become a unisex, all access, single occupancy bathroom (only available to one person at a time) during unstaffed hours. The BlueFit reserves the right to refuse entry to any member and has the right to terminate entitlement of use without warning if any member fails to comply with BlueFit rules of conduct, gym etiquette or displays inappropriate behaviour.
I understand the centre is under Unsupervised Gym Access video recording. I acknowledge and accept I will be subject to video recording within the facility (with the exception of bathrooms and change rooms).
Warning of potential harm and assumption of risk
I acknowledge and am aware that whilst all reasonable care and skill may be taken by BlueFit to ensure safe equipment, facilities and provision of service, there are some significant and inherent risks involved in the use of the facilities and exercise equipment.

I acknowledge and agree that the above mentioned injuries and potential causes of injuries are not exhaustive, and there are other unknown or anticipated risks that may result in injury, illness or death.
I acknowledge that any such injury may result not only from my actions but from the action, omission or negligence of other gym users.
I understand and appreciate the risks from the use of the facilities and equipment, agree that I am participating voluntarily and agree to assume responsibility for those risks.
