You may revoke the contract within 14 days of the contract date for any or no reason, in which case the contract will be unwound.
To exercise your right of revocation, you must clearly notify Us (e.g., by letter, or e-mail) that you no longer wish to be bound by the contract. For this purpose you may, but do not have to, use the attached standard revocation form. Any clear notice will suffice. If you exercise this option, We will confirm receipt of your notice of revocation (e.g., by e-mail). Your notice of revocation will be timely as long as you send it before the revocation period has expired. Please address any notice of revocation to the following address:
Kottbusser Damm 103A

We will issue the refund at the latest 14 days after We receive your notice of revocation. The refund will be made by the same method you used for the original transaction, unless We expressly agree otherwise with you.
If you have requested that services begin during the notice period for revocation, you must compensate Us in a reasonable amount for any services you have already received. This will be a prorated amount of the total amount due for the booked service, based on the time period from the start date of service until the date you provide Us with notice of revocation.

Any such changes will have no effect on existing subscriptions until the end of the contract term.
Our understanding of human health and athletic performance is evolving on a continuous basis. This may affect how workouts are evaluated. Even though our workouts are based on current studies and findings, We make no guarantee that our workouts are in conformity with current research results or findings.
