In order to maximise progress, it will be necessary for participants to follow all program guidelines during supervised and (if applicable) unsupervised training days. During the exercise program, every effort will be made to ensure your safety. However, as with any exercise program, there are inherent risks, including increased heart stress and the chance of musculoskeletal injuries. In choosing to participate in this program, you agree to assume all responsibility for these risks, and expressly waive any rights to claim for personal damages of any nature. You also agree that, to the best of your knowledge, you have no pre-existing limiting physical condition or disability that would preclude you from undertaking such an exercise program. The Client must provide the company with a current medical report, duly signed by a doctor or medical practitioner, registered and authorised to practice medicine according to the laws of their country, attesting that the Client is fully capable of undertaking physical training of this nature. By signing below, you expressly accept full responsibility for your own health and well-being, AND you acknowledge your understanding that no responsibility is assumed by or apportionable to the leaders of the program.
General Terms and Conditions.
Agreements are applicable from the moment that the Client begins the program until such time as they complete it. Payment of the service purchased must be executed in full at the time that the Client purchases it, and prior to the start of the service. The service purchased can be On-Site or On-line, depending on which option the Client chooses. Onsite Educational Courses: There must be a minimum of 10 (ten) participants enrolled on an On-site Training Course in order for that course to proceed. In the event that a course does not proceed, the Client will receive a credit to use for an alternative course (at a different time or of a different type) or service offered by the IFWTA.
Method of payment.
IFWTA makes use of third-party instruments for the processing of payments, and does not in any way come into contact with the payment data provided, such as debit/credit card details and paypal.
Availability of the products/services.
The prices, descriptions, and availability of the displayed products are subject to change without prior notice. The photos provided on the website or elsewhere are intended to be indicative, and do not guarantee conformity to the actual product(s) or their quality.
Execution of the Order.
The Order is executed in accordance with the terms specified in the summary page and in the email of Order Confirmation, subject to the availability of the product ordered. The Owner cannot be held liable for any damages suffered by the User due to delays in delivery that are not dependent on circumstances foreseeable by the parties at the time of the sending of the Order Confirmation.
Deliveries shall be made as indicated on the product description pages.
Cancellations and Refunds.
In the event that a Client chooses to cancel the course or service purchased, the Client will be charged the full cost of that course or service according to the original agreement. In the event that the course or service is otherwise cancelled by the Owner, the Client will receive a credit to use for an alternative course or service offered by the IFWTA. The right of withdrawal does not apply to service contracts once the execution of the service has begun. This applies both to on-site (face-to-face) and online services providing digital content (training and nutrition programs, training manuals, training videos) via a non-material medium, once the execution has begun. To this end, the platform tracks the navigation of the user from the moment of the purchase of the service in order to monitor the use of the services provided.

The partial use of the Coupon, or the use of the Coupon in a way that involves its complete redemption in successive phases is not allowed. The Coupon must be redeemed exclusively within the time period specified for the use of the offer. At the end of this period, the Coupon will expire automatically, without any possibility for the User to make any claim in this regard. In the event that the Coupon is used for services other than those offered in the initial offer, the User will not be entitled to any credit/refund/compensation should there be a difference between the value of the original offer and the value of the redeemed amount. The reproduction, counterfeiting, or commercial exchange of the Coupon, as well as any illegal activity related to the redemption and/or use of the Coupon is expressly prohibited. In case any wrongdoing is committed, the Data Controller may legitimately refuse to fulfil their contractual obligations in relation to the Coupon, and, moreover, expressly reserves the right to take any appropriate legal action in order to safeguard their rights and interests.

Minors may make use of the courses of the IFWTA from the age of 15 years old only with the assistance of a parent or guardian. In no event may a minor under the age of 15 years old make use of the courses of the IFWTA.
The Client understands that the Coach is not a medical professional. The role of the Coach is NOT to provide health care, medical or nutrition therapy services, or to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease, condition, or other physical or mental ailment of the human body. Rather, the Coach is acting solely in the capacity as a mentor and guide who has been trained in holistic health coaching, to assist the Client to reach their own health and wellness goals by helping the Client to devise and implement positive, sustainable, lifestyle changes on their own behalf. The Client understands that the Coach is not acting in the capacity of a doctor, licensed dietician-nutritionist, psychologist, or other licensed or registered medical professional, and that any advice given by the Coach is not intended to take the place of advice of such medically qualified professionals. In the event that the Client is under the care of a health care professional or is currently using prescription medications or undertaking prescribed exercises, the Client should discuss any dietary changes and/or potential use of dietary supplements and exercises with his or her doctor, and should not discontinue any prescriptions without first consulting his or her doctor. The Client acknowledges that they freely choose to work with the Coach, and understands that the information received from them should not be taken to constitute medical or nursing advice, and is in no way intended to take the place of a proper consultation with an appropriate licensed health professional.
