The arbitrator shall decide all issues except (1) those that are specifically addressed herein, (2) those issues relating to the scope, validity, and enforceability of the Arbitration Agreement, and (3) any issues arising from or relating to the arbitrability of any dispute, all of which are for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. These Terms and this Arbitration Agreement do not prevent you from bringing your dispute to the attention of any federal, state, or local government agency.
BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU ARE AGREEING IN ADVANCE THAT YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SEEK TO RECOVER MONETARY OR OTHER RELIEF IN ANY LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST ANY FITNESS CONNECTION PARTY ALLEGING CLASS, COLLECTIVE, AND/OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIMS ON YOUR BEHALF. INSTEAD, BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU MAY BRING YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST ANY FITNESS CONNECTION PARTY IN AN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. IF SUCCESSFUL ON SUCH CLAIMS, YOU COULD BE AWARDED MONEY OR OTHER RELIEF BY AN ARBITRATOR. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING WHETHER TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT.
Pre-Arbitration Informal Dispute Resolution. You and we agree to make a good faith effort to resolve any dispute informally prior to initiating an arbitration proceeding. Each party must provide an opportunity to resolve the dispute by providing a detailed description of the dispute; contact information (address, telephone number, email address, and account number if applicable); sufficient information to enable you or us to identify any transaction at issue; and a detailed description of (1) the nature and basis of any claims and (2) the nature and basis of the relief sought (including a detailed calculation of any financial relief sought). Your notice to us must be personally signed by you (and your attorney if you are represented by legal counsel). Our notice to you must be personally signed by a representative of a Fitness Connection Party (and our attorney if we are represented by legal counsel). You must contact us in writing or by electronic mail, at the information provided in the “Your Comments and Concerns” section herein. We will contact you at the most recent contact information that you have provided to us.
For a period of 60 days from the date of receipt of a completed notice from the other party, you and we will work together using reasonable, good-faith efforts to try to resolve the dispute. If requested by us in connection with a notice initiated by you, you must personally participate in an individualized telephone settlement conference (and if you are represented by an attorney, your attorney may also participate) to discuss a potential resolution. If requested by you in connection with a notice initiated by us, a representative of a Fitness Connection Party must personally participate in an individualized, telephone settlement conference (and if we are represented by an attorney, our attorney may also participate). If the dispute is not resolved within this 60-day period (which period can be extended by agreement of the parties), you or we may request arbitration if the dispute cannot be resolved within sixty (60) days. Compliance with this informal dispute resolution process is mandatory and a condition precedent to initiating arbitration.
Any applicable limitations period (including statutes of limitations) shall be tolled while the parties engage in this informal dispute resolution process.
If the sufficiency of a notice or compliance with this informal dispute resolution process is at issue, such sufficiency may be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction at either party’s election, and any arbitration shall be stayed pending resolution of the issue. The court shall have the authority to enforce this condition precedent to arbitration, which includes the power to enjoin the filing or prosecution of a demand for arbitration or the assessment or payment of arbitration fees. You or we may also elect to raise non-compliance with this informal dispute resolution process and seek relief with a process arbitrator (as applicable) or in arbitration.
The arbitration demand must be accompanied by a certification personally signed by you (and your attorney, if you are represented by legal counsel) if you are initiating the arbitration or by representative of a Fitness Connection Party (and our attorney, if we are represented by counsel) if we initiate the arbitration. Such statement must state that you or we, as applicable, satisfied the pre-arbitration informal dispute resolution process. By signing the certification, the attorney represents that to the best of their information, knowledge, and belief, formed after a reasonable inquiry that: (1) the arbitration demand is not being presented for any improper purpose, such as to harass, cause unnecessary delay, or needlessly increase the cost of dispute resolution; (2) the claims or other legal contentions are warranted by existing law or by a nonfrivolous argument for extending, modifying, or reversing existing law or for establishing new law; and (3) the factual contentions have evidentiary support or, if specifically so identified, will likely have evidentiary support after reasonable opportunity for further investigation or discovery. The arbitrator shall be authorized to impose any sanctions available under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11 on the parties and/or their counsel.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by AAA’s applicable rules, as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. AAA’s rules may be found on its website, adr.org, or by contacting AAA. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay the AAA filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from the AAA, the Fitness Connection Party will reimburse them for you. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if any Fitness Connection Party is required to pay your portion of the arbitration fee for this Arbitration Agreement to be enforceable, it shall do so. To the fullest extent permissible by law, the cost-shifting provisions of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 68 shall apply, and shall be enforced by the arbitrator after the entry of an award.
Except as specifically provided herein, you may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location, except any dispute over $25,000 shall have an in-person or video hearing. You and the Fitness Connection Party reserve the right to request a hearing in any matter from the arbitrator. You and the Fitness Connection Party agree that your respective representatives will personally appear at any hearing (along with your respective legal counsel, if the parties are represented by legal counsel). If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted at a location that is reasonably convenient to you or at another mutually agreed-upon location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You and the Fitness Connection Party agree that we have a shared interest in reducing the fees and costs and increasing the efficiencies associated with arbitration. Therefore, either party may negotiate with the AAA for reduced or deferred arbitration fees, and you and the Fitness Connection Party agree that the parties (and your and our counsel, if you and we are represented by legal counsel) will work together in good faith to ensure that arbitration remains cost-effective for all parties.
Additional Procedures for Mass Arbitration. If twenty-five (25) or more similar claims are asserted against any Fitness Connection Party by the same or coordinated counsel or are otherwise coordinated (and your claim is one such claim), you and any Fitness Connection Party agree that these additional procedures set forth in this subsection will apply. You and any Fitness Connection Party also understand and agree that, in such event, the resolution of the dispute might be delayed.
You and the Fitness Connection Party also agree to the following process and application of the AAA Multiple Consumer Case Filing Fee Schedule and Supplementary Rules. Counsel for the claimants and counsel for the Fitness Connection Party shall each select ten (10) cases (per side) to proceed first in individual arbitration proceedings as part of a staged process. The remaining cases shall not be filed or deemed filed in arbitration nor shall any AAA fees be assessed in connection with those claims until they are selected to proceed to individual arbitration proceedings as part of a staged process. If the parties are unable to resolve the remaining cases after the conclusion of the initial twenty (20) proceedings, the parties shall participate in a global mediation session before a retired state or federal court judge, and the Fitness Connection Party shall pay the mediator’s fee.
If the parties are unable to resolve the remaining matters in mediation at this time, each side shall select twenty (20) cases (per side) to proceed to individual arbitration proceedings as part of a second staged process. (If there are fewer than forty (40) claims remaining, all shall proceed.) The remaining cases shall not be filed or deemed filed in arbitration nor shall any AAA fees be assessed in connection with those cases until they are selected to proceed to individual arbitration proceedings as part of a staged process. A single arbitrator shall preside over each case. Only one case may be assigned to each arbitrator as part of a staged process unless the parties agree otherwise. If the parties are unable to resolve the remaining cases after the conclusion of the forty (40) proceedings, the parties shall participate in another global mediation session before a retired state or federal court judge, and the Fitness Connection Party shall pay the mediator’s fee.
If the parties are unable to resolve the remaining matters in mediation at this time, this staged process shall continue with one hundred (100) cases proceeding at one time that are selected randomly or by the AAA in staged sets, until all the claims included in these coordinated filings, including your case, are adjudicated or otherwise resolved. Between staged sets of proceedings, the Fitness Connection Party agrees to participate in a global mediation session should your counsel request it in an effort to resolve all remaining claims.
Any applicable limitations periods (including statutes of limitations) and any arbitration fee deadlines shall be tolled for claims subject to these additional procedures from the time the first cases are selected to proceed until the time your case is selected, withdrawn, settled, or otherwise resolved.
Each arbitrator shall endeavor to issue their award within 120 days of their appointment or as swiftly as possible while ensuring fairness to the parties.
Counsel for the parties will meet and confer throughout this process in an effort to informally resolve the remaining claims, streamline procedures, address the informal exchange of information, modify the number of claims to be adjudicated in any given set of staged proceedings, and ensure the process remains fair and efficient for all parties.
A court of competent jurisdiction will have the authority to enforce this “Additional Procedures for Mass Arbitration” section of the Arbitration Agreement, including by enjoining the mass filing, the prosecution or administration of arbitrations, or the assessment or collection of AAA fees.
This subsection of the Arbitration Agreement and each of its requirements are intended to be severable from the rest of this Arbitration Agreement. If, after exhaustion of all appeals, a court of competent jurisdiction decides that the staging process in this subsection is not enforceable, then the claims may be filed in arbitration and the payment of AAA filing, administration, case-management, hearing, and arbitrator fees will be assessed as the arbitrations advance and arbitrators are appointed rather than when the arbitrations are initiated. You and we also agree that should the staging process in this subsection be deemed not enforceable as set forth above, your counsel and our counsel will work together in good faith, including with the assistance of a process arbitrator, to develop streamlined procedures for the adjudication of claims to reduce the costs and maximize the efficiency of arbitration.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND THE FITNESS CONNECTION PARTY HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and the Fitness Connection Party are instead electing that all disputes will be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified herein. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Arbitration Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. YOU AND THE FITNESS CONNECTION PARTY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION IN COURT TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW. UNLESS YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE, ALL DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER, EXCEPT AS DESCRIBED ABOVE. In the event that this class or consolidated action waiver is deemed invalid or unenforceable neither you nor we are entitled to arbitration and instead claims and disputes will be resolved in a court as set forth below.
Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts will be of no force and effect and will be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Fitness connection or any Fitness Connection Party.
Future Modifications to this Section Regarding Binding Arbitration: Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary, we agree that if Fitness Connection or any Fitness Connection Party makes any future changes to this Arbitration Agreement section (other than a change to the mailing or email address), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice personally signed by you within thirty (30) days of the change to the address provided above. This is not an opt-out of arbitration altogether. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement section.
IF FOR ANY REASON THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IS DEEMED INAPPLICABLE OR INVALID, YOU AND WE BOTH WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, ANY CLAIMS TO RECOVER PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES AND ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY CLAIMS ON A CLASS OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.
