YOUR MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT IS AN ONGOING AGREEMENT WITH A MINIMUM INITIAL COMMITMENT PERIOD OF AT LEAST TWELVE WEEKS. IT AUTOMATICALLY RENEWS FOR A FURTHER COMMITMENT PERIOD UNLESS TERMINATED UNDER PARAGRAPH 8. Basically this means you contract will roll over every twelve weeks unless you tell us not to.

1. The Agreement between you and us

These Terms, together with the Club Rules and the following completed documents:

(a) your Membership Application Form; to be sorted:

(b) your Payment Authority Form; and EZIDEBIT

(c) your Health Check Questionnaire;

make up all of the terms of a Membership Agreement (“Agreement”) between, the member(s) named above (“you”), and Mint Health and Fitness (“us”)). It is important that you have read and understood all of the terms and conditions of the Agreement before signing these Terms. If you have any questions please ask us.

2. Your type of Membership, your Home Club and other Clubs

You are becoming a member of Mint under the Membership Type as stated in Membership Application Form

3. When will your membership start?

Your membership will start on the Membership Start Date (“Membership Start Date”) set out on your Membership Application Form, provided that:

(a) you have signed these Terms, your Membership Application Form, and your Payment Authority Form;

(b) you have completed a Health Check Questionnaire and, if applicable, provided any other medical details of your health and fitness to our satisfaction; and

(c) we have received your Total Upfront Payment as set out in your Membership Application Form.

(d) if you do not wish to proceed you have the right to cancel within three days

4. How long will your membership last?

4.1 Commitment Periods

Your Commitment Periods include both an Initial Commitment Period and Ongoing Commitment Periods. You are committed to a minimum initial period of membership (“Initial Commitment Period”) such that:

(a) if your Membership Start Date is the first day of a fortnightly billing period,  from your Membership Start Date; Direct debits from Bank or credit card will be on a Thursday every 2 weeks.

Your membership will automatically renew at the end of the Commitment Periods (“Ongoing Commitment Periods”) unless your membership is terminated in accordance with paragraph 8. Each Ongoing Commitment Period will begin on the first day after your previous Ongoing Commitment Period ends.

For example, assuming a fortnightly billing period starts on 19 Sept 2011, the Initial Commitment Period for a member whose Membership Start Date is 19 Sept 2011 will begin on 19 Sept 2011 and will end on 19 Dec 2011. Their first Ongoing Commitment Period would then run from 20 Dec 2009 until 20 Mar 2009.

4.2 Can you suspend or “freeze” your membership?

If you wish to suspend or “freeze” your membership you may notify us of your request in writing or by email. You will also have to pay the non-refundable Freeze Fee set out in the price list current at the time you freeze your membership.

Your membership may be frozen for two or more consecutive whole fortnightly billing periods (i.e. a minimum of 4 weeks) but cannot be frozen for only a part of any fortnightly billing period. You can notify us at any time that you would like to freeze your membership but Mint must receive your notice at least 3 days (by close of business Sunday) prior to the start of the first fortnightly billing period you wish to freeze. You will not be able to use the Club while your membership is frozen.

If you freeze your membership during the Initial Commitment Period, the period during which your membership is frozen will not be included in calculating your Initial Commitment Period. In other words, a freeze of your membership will also freeze the calculation of your Initial Commitment Period and will resume upon expiration of the frozen membership period.

 

4.3 What happens if you change your mind?

You may notify us by completing a email in person or a signed letter, that you wish to cancel your membership within 3 days starting on the date that you sign these Terms (“Cooling Off Period”). If you do so, we will refund your Total Upfront Payment and any Membership Dues which you have paid to us after you return your Membership Card, Locker Key (if required), gifts and any other documentation which we have provided to you upon joining. If you have used your membership during the Cooling Off Period, we will refund those amounts set out above, less the applicable visitor fee for each visit and a reasonable administration charge.  If you want to cancel after this period then a 30 day notice period is required.

Mint Health & Fitness  for want of a better word is a "boutique" fitness and food facility.  We have fantastic personal trainers, nutritionists & clean eating cafe that all work together to make sure that your experience at Mint is unlike any other health a nutrition facility. 
The Mint experience is something that we have found hard to describe, but our members all say the same thing, friendly staff and atmosphere with helpful instruction.  
This obviously isn't it all, we have PURE Cafe with it great selection of healthy nutritious food, but to find out for yourself what our difference is come on down and talk to the team.
We are a friendly bunch at Mint and will gladly show you around and tell why we are proud to be a Mintie.
P.S. Ask about a free trial workout just to see if you like us. One of our team may even be able to help with a one on one workout if you are newbie exerciser (we don't want you to hurt yourself).

Whats Our Members Are Saying


I felt determined when I joined Mint. I have lost approx. 15 Kgs since my heaviest and about 1.5Kg in the last 2 weeks, I am now eating 8 times a day and I feel that what I am doing is working for me. It was hard to stay away from those salt and vinegar chips and keep up with the frequency of meals but I am getting there. I originally went to Jane when I first started and struggled with the food (salads are just not for me) but we found some alternatives which works. Having the BIA’s done with Jane has been great to see the results. Also, I have learned about food composition and eating clean.
Dudley Crabbe
I felt determined when I joined Mint. With my husband already being a member and enjoying it. I feel fitter and Jane has helped me change some of eating habits so I am hoping I can start losing some weight. Easy access to Jane being on site will help me get to my goals over the next few months. Jane has kept me going, don't give up, and some good tips how important protein is in the diet.
Anne Gibling
I was hopeful joining Mint and I feel that I have made a steady improvement throughout my time at Mint. Jane has helped me control my blood sugar levels and they are better than ever. Jane provided great advice and tips.
Tony Gibling
I felt relaxed when joining Mint. I found that at Mint I have lost weight and found it a great way to deal with stress. Jane helped me change my bad eating habits and organised me to have a necessary blood tests done in America which made a big difference.
Garry Beaumont
Making the decision to join the gym was actually pretty hard. I was going through a particularly stressful time. The results I feel the most are: I wasn’t necessarily focused on aerobic health when I started but I feel much fitter and that’s a lovely feeling. I’m fitting into some older clothes – very gratifying. But the most important result is that I am in control of my choices. I’m doing the best I can to take care of myself. I feel more confident in the face of other challenges. So if I had to say what the number one result of my time at Mint is, it’s mental. I have a completely different relationship with exercise, which has become something I enjoy doing because it clears my head and makes me feel good about myself. I enjoy being in my body; I feel proud of what it can do. This has been an incredibly valuable experience – and one that’s ongoing, which is cool as well. I’m looking forward to what comes next! Wendy and I thought to tell you how much we miss Mint now that we are on 6 months in Heidelberg Germany after our three months in Christchurch. We have found a gym here that is very well equipped but it is VERY German and some of the classes look like torture rooms!
Greta Bond
December 21 we finally go back to Vancouver and resume our normal life. I very much appreciate the two back workouts you gave me and I am still doing them, alternating several times a week. They are the best I have ever had and I have had great back health since working with you. I very much thank you for that. Best wishes from your Canadian fan club - congrats on the new gym and good business to both of you.
Wendy & Chris
Having battled multiple heath issues and as a busy Mum of three young adults, a chance conversation led me to the team at Mint. Nutritional advice was just the beginning! I began Reflexology with Emma, Carole’s massage as well as a totally personalised gym program on a one-to-one basis with Mike. I cannot adequately convey the impact of encouragement, support, genuine interest, as well as the wonderful facilities that Mint provides as I literally claw my way back to health. The whole body approach of health and wellness at Mint is truly unique. With the addition of Pure Cafe Co. enabling you to put a foot in the door to this amazing setup that is Mint Health and Fitness.
Angela
I joined the Mint fitness gym in December 2013 because being a bus driver I needed a way to keep fit and keep all my joints moving. I find it really easy to go because it’s just across the road from where I work. They say a healthy body helps towards a healthy mind and so it helps with all the stress of everyday life and the stress that comes with driving around the city all day everyday. The team at Mint, Mike, Gabby and Bonnie are really friendly and help with anything you need while you are there. The changing rooms are always clean and tidy and well looked after. There is also a Cafe in the same building which serves healthy food to complement the exercise. I joined for 3 months and in conjunction with my own cycling am enjoying working out to the program Mike has set up for me. The 24 hour access, its great for the weekends and after work and also means I can go and work out when it suits. I really love it – Mint is great.
Peter
I joined mint as this year I am working in a third world Country which has a high level of security risk and a demanding physical environment. The team at Mint listened carefully to what I was needing and tailored an exercise and nutrition programme to get me to the physical condition I need to be in. You are not just another number at mint, they genuinely care about you and your goals. You always feel welcome and always have advice. I love how you can get a bite to eat after a work out, the time savings are so helpful. This is the best gym in the city, and the tuna wraps are fantastic!"
F
When the quake shook everything up, I unwilling distanced myself from MINT, lost my ‘work out mojo’. It wasn’t until late 2013 that I got back into training. From this unplanned break I can see first-hand how much better I feel psychologically and physically from training. BUT the thing that makes MINT the place for me is that everyone gets to know you. If you are self-guided training (me presently) or getting one on one personal training, MINT’S care and attention is what makes it. The team pay attention to how often you show up, Mike and Di show a personal interest in my Progress, I feel spurred on by this. You cannot underestimate the power of someone noticing you’re not at the gym!! My journey this time is a more driven one. I know how easy it is to ‘slip’ out of habit. And I know for me, MINT is the place to achieve my fitness goals.
Simon
Before Mint I weighed 78kgs. I’d been overweight since childhood and was a comfort eater. Never played any sports or been into any sort of exercise. I was scared of joining a gym. I remember telling myself there was no way I could ever be a person who was into working out and healthy eating because it just wasn’t me. Six months later and 20kgs lighter, I’m now the person I thought I'd never be. I’m so happy with who I am now and for the first time ever, I can say I truly love myself. I really don’t believe that I could have achieved so much success without all the wonderful people at Mint supporting and motivating me 100%. Joining Mint has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.
