Active members are able to purchase a “pay per use” session to attend an alternative Fitstop club than their “home” club. Please note that the fee for a “pay per use” session will be in addition to an active member’s membership fees.
Active members can refer another person to become a Fitstop member. If an active member refers someone else who becomes an active member, both parties will receive a free week, with the next billing being free. for the newly active member who was referred, they will receive their free week on their second billing week; they will be charged for the first billing week to ensure they become an active member.
Membership fees are debited on a weekly basis as a non-negotiable, across the network and all locations are required to use Stripe as the direct debit company. The billing date will be based on when the member initially signs up, or when the member suspends (which will change their debit cycle date).
