CHANGING MEMBERSHIP: The Trainee may upgrade to a longer term at any time by entering into a new service agreement at the then prevailing rates.
INSURANCE: Trainee shall provide Bootcamp with a copy of their insurance card evidencing their active participation in a health insurance plan. Trainee must be covered by health insurance while they are participating in Bootcamp programs. In the event of a lapse in Trainee’s insurance Trainee shall not be permitted to continue training until Trainee provides a new insurance card showing that Trainee is covered. A failure by Trainee to maintain health insurance as required in this Contract shall not absolve or release Trainee from their payment obligations under the Contract and Trainee shall continue to make full and timely payment for services under the Contract notwithstanding any lapse in insurance or suspension of participation in the program.
CONSENT TO PUBLICITY: The Trainee hereby consents to the use by Bootcamp for its commercial advantage of photographs and other graphic representations containing the Trainee’s name, image, or likeness.

Upon default, Bootcamp shall have the rights and remedies available, including termination of this Contract, acceleration of the balance due under this Contract and institution of an action for all applicable damages. If Bootcamp delays or refrains from exercising any rights under this agreement, such delay does not constitute a waiver of any rights, including the right to receive full and timely payments and other charges due under this Contract, and Bootcamp reserves all rights.
FORCE MAJEURE: It is acknowledged and accepted by all parties hereto that unanticipated events beyond the control of the parties, such as acts of God, and including without limitation weather events such as thunderstorms, snowstorms, windstorms and ice-storms, and health events such as accidents, illness or hospitalization affecting Bootcamp’s service providers, may affect the provision of the training and exercise programs purchased by Trainee hereunder, and Bootcamp shall not be liable for any cancelled programs or training sessions resulting from force majeure events; furthermore Bootcamp shall not be deemed to be in default of this Contract for any failures to provide services that are attributable to a force majeure event.

ENFORCEABILITY: Should any provision of this Agreement be found or deemed to be invalid, illegal, unenforceable, voidable, or void by a court of competent jurisdiction the parties intend that such invalidity, illegality, voidability, status as already void, or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision of the Contract, and the Contract shall continue in full force and binding effect and be construed as if such invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision or provisions had never been included.
GOVERNING LAW: This Contract shall be governed by and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Maryland, exclusive of its conflict of law rules.

ATTORNEY FEES: In any action at law or equity that is brought by Bootcamp to enforce the terms of this Contract, Trainee shall be liable for and, shall reimburse Bootcamp for, its actual attorney’s fees, expenses and costs to enforce the terms of this Contract.
MEDIATION: The parties agree that should a dispute arise between them they will first submit the matter to non-binding mediation for a minimum of not less than four (4) hours. Any disputes between the parties that may arise under this Contract shall be mediated in Frederick County, Maryland by a mediator certified by the Circuit Court for Frederick County, Maryland, provided however that a default by the Trainee for failure to pay program fees hereunder shall not be subject to mediation and Bootcamp shall have the absolute right to proceed directly to litigation to collect delinquent program fees. Both parties shall mutually agree upon the selection of mediator from the Circuit Court list, but in the event that the parties are unable to agree, Bootcamp shall select a mediator from the Circuit Court list. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, mediation fees, costs and expenses shall be divided and paid equally by the parties to the mediation. If either party elects to have an attorney present that party shall pay his or her own attorney’s fees. Neither party shall commence any action in any court or before any administrative agency without first submitting the dispute or claim to mediation as herein provided. In the event either party commences any action in any court or before any administrative agency without first submitting the dispute or claim to mediation as herein provided, the party commencing such action agrees to pay all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred by the responding party to enforce the mediation provision of this Contract. In the event Bootcamp requests mediation and the Trainee does not respond or cooperate with arranging the mediation within ten (10) days of its request, Bootcamp may proceed with litigation against Client.
