Being-Fit has a unique approach to fitness center memberships. We do not ask for large initiation fees or bind people to long term contracts. Most of our agreements are on a month to month basis and may be canceled if done in writing thirty days prior to the due date which is always the 28th of each month. We never accept cancellations verbally or via telephone or email. All we ask is that the automatic debit is not interrupted since we are charged by the company that handles the automatic debit, when funds are not available. We are not responsible for lost or misdirected mail.
If you are charged $15.00 extra, it is for one of the following reasons:
- There are insufficient fund in your account.
- You interrupt payment without notifying Being Fit 30 days’ notice before the due date.
- You didn`t notify us that a credit card, exp date, or account number changed.
Please be sure that the funds are available on the 28th of each month. Any delinquent accounts will be reported to a large nationwide credit reporting service. This may adversely affect your credit standing.
Please be sure to keep us up to date with your current phone number, mailing address, and email address, as we use these sources to get in touch with you when there has been a problem with your account.
