Book a class and reserve a spot/bike ahead of time. To enroll for an early-morning class, you should reserve by 9 p.m. the night before class. Early-morning classes may be cancelled if no one has signed up by 9 p.m. the night before. Access your True Cycling account or use the app to secure a spot in the Functional Training (TRX) room or a bike in the Cycling Theater. If you anticipate not being able to join the class, please make sure to cancel your reservation two (2) hours prior to class in order to be fair to other customers and to avoid a no show or late cancellation fee. If you are enrolled in an early-morning class, then you should cancel by 9 p.m. the evening before class.
If you are on the waitlist, it is assumed that you want to take the class. If you are moved up from the waitlist and are placed into the class, you are now enrolled. You will receive an email and/or a phone call (voicemail) to confirm that you now have a spot. By adding yourself to the waitlist you are securing the spot over another customer, so it is your responsibility to attend. If you do not attend or are a late cancel, members will be charged a $10 fee and package bearers will have a session deducted from their current package.
c) Late Cancellation
If you cancel from a class within 2 hours of the class start time, then you will be marked as a “late cancel,” you will lose that session from the package, or you will be charged a $10 late cancelation fee if you are a member.

9. Limitation of Liability
We are not liable for various things that could go wrong as a result of your use of the Services.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, under no circumstances (including, without limitation, negligence) shall True Cycling or its independent contractors be liable to you or any third party for (a) any indirect, incidental, special, reliance, exemplary, punitive, or consequential damages of any kind whatsoever; (b) loss of profits, revenue, data, use, goodwill, or other intangible losses; (c) damages relating to your access to, use of, or inability to access or use the Services; (d) damages relating to any conduct or content of any third party or customer using the Services, including without limitation, defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct or content; and/or (e) damages in any manner relating to any Third-Party Content, Third-party Products or Third-Party Activities accessed via the Services. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, this limitation applies to all claims, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory, whether or not True Cycling has been informed of the possibility of such damage, and further where a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed its essential purpose. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the total liability of True Cycling, for any claim under these Terms, including for any implied warranties, is limited to the greater of one thousand dollars (us $1,000.00) or the amount you paid us to use the applicable Service(s) in the past twelve months.
In particular, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we are not liable for any claims arising out of (a) your use of the Services (including but not limited to your participation in any activities promoted by or accessed via the Services), (b) the use, disclosure, display, or maintenance of an athlete’s Personal Data and/or Location Data, (c) any other interactions with us or any other athletes using the Services, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages, or (d) other Content, information, services or goods received through or advertised on the Services or received through any links provided with the Services.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, you acknowledge and agree that we offer the Services and set the Services’ prices in reliance upon the warranty disclaimers, releases, and limitations of liability set forth in the Terms. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you also acknowledge and agree that these warranty disclaimers, releases, and limitations of liability reflect a reasonable and fair allocation of risk between you and us and that these warranty disclaimers, releases, and limitations of liability form an essential basis of the bargain between you and us. We would not be able to provide the Services to you on an economically reasonable basis without these warranty disclaimers, releases, and limitations of liability.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless, and our officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees) arising from: (1) any breach by you of any of these terms and conditions, (2) your content and materials, (3) your use of materials or features available on the website (except to the extent a claim is based upon infringement of a third party right by materials created by us) or (4) a violation by you of applicable law or any agreement or terms with a third party to which you are subject.
11. Disputes and Arbitration, Jurisdiction and Venue
This Agreement shall be construed and governed in all respects by the laws of Maryland. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you and True Cycling agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. Except where prohibited, you and we agree to submit to the personal and exclusive binding arbitration of disputes relating to your general use of the Services under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Please visit www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.
In the event of any litigation or binding arbitration arising from or related to these Terms, or the Services provided, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the non-prevailing party all reasonable costs incurred including staff time, court costs, attorneys’ fees, and all other related expenses incurred in such litigation or binding arbitration.
12. International Terms
If you are not a United States resident and you are accessing our Services from outside the United States, you agree to transfer certain information outside your home country to us, and that you will follow all the laws that apply to you.
These miscellaneous provisions are part of just about every online terms agreement. Basically, they ensure that this agreement between us is enforceable.
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of the Terms or your use of the Services. The Terms and any Product-Specific Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to your use of the Services.
14. Contact Us
If you have any feedback, questions or comments about the Services, please contact us by mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 443-512-TRUE (8783), or by mail at 3473 Merchant Blvd, Suite B. Abingdon, MD. 21009.
