Terms & Conditions
Once you have gone through the sign up process and checked the appropriate boxes, we will send you an email confirming your KISS membership (from firstname.lastname@example.org). This agreement will come into force once you we have sent you that confirmation email (sent, not received, please check your spam filters) and your membership starts at that point.
Your membership is personal to you and may not be transferred, whether temporarily or not, to anyone else at any time. Sharing PIN codes will always result in membership cancellation and a life time ban (security of your PIN number is your responsibility, do not pass it on to anyone under any circumstances. You must inform us if you feel security of your number has been compromised).
Payment (for monthly members paying by Direct Debit only)
On the first direct debit payment date, we will debit (a) the joining fee and (b) the first month's membership, paid in advance. Thereafter, on the same day as you joined each month (next working day), the monthly membership fee will be debited which effectively extends your KISS membership by one month each payment. Payments are non refundable under any circumstances.
If you fail to pay any monies due under this agreement or if any Direct Debit is returned unpaid or any cheque is returned unpaid or if any other form of payment is not honoured for whatever reason, Harlands (who manage and process payment on our behalf) reserve the right to charge an administration fee of £20. If you have any concerns about your ability to pay our monthly fee, we strongly advise you to contact Harlands before your payment is due (Harlands 01444 449162, KissGym@snapdda.co.uk)
Payment (for monthly members making first payment by debit/credit card)
If your first payment is made by Credit/Debit card (and by direct debit thereafter) this is non-refundable under any circumstances, whether you have visited the gym or not. If in doubt, please buy a day pass to sample the gym before becoming a monthly member.
Payment (for daily members paying by credit card)
Your payment will be taken on the same day as you sign up, and is valid for the day you have selected, and are non changeable. Payments are non refundable under any circumstances.
Cancellation (for monthly members)
To cancel your membership, simply contact your bank and cancel your direct debit which you can do anytime after your first payment has been taken and your PIN will be invalidated automatically - you don't need to notify us.
However, if you take out a monthly membership, you are minimally committed to paying for a single month from the date of your application including joining fee, irrespective of whether you use the gym or not. If in doubt, please buy a day pass to trial the gym, which will be refunded in the event you are not satsified (please explain your reasons)..
If you cancel your Direct Debit before your first payment is taken, you will still be liable for your first month of payment (including joining fee) as well as an additional £20 administration fee. To be clear, if you cancel your Direct Debit before your first payment is taken, an additional £20 administration fee is added to your bill and you will be pursued, including by legal means, for recovery.
If you would like to maximise your access on cancellation, then you should cancel your direct debit a couple of days before your regular payment date, as you PIN becomes invalid IMMEDIATELY (as this is the only way the process can be automated).
Please be aware that it will not be possible to reinstate your previous membership, and if you wish to use the gym again, you will have to go through the signing up process once more (and pay the joining fee).
We may terminate this agreement and your membership with immediate effect, upon giving you notice, if, in our reasonable opinion (a) your behaviour puts either yourself or others at risk; or (b) you persist with any form of antisocial or unreasonable behaviour; or (c) we suspect you are younger than our minium age (18) until your provide proof otherwise.
Delivery - you will be emailed a PIN code which will give you access, nothing is sent via post, and your membership starts when our email is sent, not when it is received by you (please check your spam filters, and contact us in the event you do not receive a confirmation email).
- To the best of your knowledge and belief you are in good health and not knowingly incapable of engaging in either active or passive exercise and that such exercise would not be detrimental to your health, safety, comfort, well being or physical condition. Further, that you will advise us immediately should your circumstances change.
- You agree to attend an induction before you use any gym equipment if you are in any doubt of your ability to use the equipment safely. Using Gym equipment can be hazardous and result in injury in mis-use - if you have not had an induction before, or are unfamiliar or uncertain for your own safety you MUST attend and induction before using any Kiss Gyms equipment. In any event the induction is also designed to improve the efficiency of your workout so is recommended to all. They happen three times per day 1pm, 6pm and 6:30pm and are free, no need to book, please ask staff.
- Kiss provides minimal safety supervision by day, and no supervision out of hours (CCTV is only monitored in the event you push the help buttons). Use out of hours is entirely at your own risk, and during this time we highly recommend only using the gym with a gym buddy at this time, and only using the most prominently visible cardio equipment (running machines) so other members can assist you in the event of unconsciousness.
- If out of staff hours, you confirm you are able to use the help points - Kiss Gyms take no responsibility for providing assistance during out of staff hours.
- You have read this agreement, including the terms and conditions and understand it will become binding upon both parties once you have checked the "I agree" box below and the "Next Step" button has been clicked.

a) removal of locks
b) removal and of contents which can be recovered with a £50 admin fee
c) uncollected items will be given to charity within 7 day s of removal

Please bring a sweat towel to wipe down gym equipment as we do not provide disposable tissues (you can buy a sweat towel from the vending machines)
Disabled toilets and showers are for disabled use only, given they are cleaned just once per day, which means genuine disabled may be using unnecessarily untidy facilities (two week ban applies for offenders!)

Kiss approved personal trainers have an exclusive right to deliver personal training within Kiss clubs, and those delivering or promoting alternative personal training or competing gyms (including via clothing) may attract an immediate ban (ranging from two weeks, to life time).
If we choose to waive any breach of this agreement, it will not stop us from enforcing the terms of the agreement strictly at a later date.
