Who is the NRPT?
The NRPT is a membership body for personal trainers in the UK. Individual personal trainers gain membership of the NRPT through their Level 3 Register of Exercise Professionals accredited personal training qualification, Equivalent Sports Degree and/or practical experience.
1. Membership Benefits
Membership of the NRPT will provide you with membership at Associate or Full Member level.
As a NRPT member you will receive a wide range of benefits. A typical membership package may include:
- Full access to the NRPT.co.uk website
- Personal profile promoted on NRPT.co.uk as a Full Member.
- Access to a variety of advice on personal training issues.
Membership packages may vary according to the grade of membership held.
We reserve the right to change the benefits that apply to NRPT membership at any time and without prior notice.
Any external providers of a benefit included within your membership package will have absolute discretion in relation to the provision of services, and membership of NRPT does not guarantee that the external provider will accept an application from a member for the provision of services.
Services supplied from an external provider will be subject to the provider’s own terms and conditions, and we do not accept any liability for loss or damage suffered as a result of a fault, error or omission in the provision of these services.
We reserve the right to change our external providers without prior notice and our decision on services provided is final.
2. The Membership Contract
When you click to submit your application online and you fax, post, or e mail us with details of your qualifications to support your application, you are making an offer to subscribe to the NRPT which, if accepted by us, will result in a legally binding contract.
At the point of renewal of your membership, your renewal payment is confirmation of the continued acceptance of this contract. You may not transfer any of your rights and obligations under these terms and conditions to another person.
For online applications you will have sight of a confirmation page and receive an email detailing your next steps. If you have supplied your email address, acknowledgement that your application has been received and is being processed does not yet mean that the contract between us is formed. A legally binding contract is formed on the date you provide full payment for your membership.
3. Cooling Off Period
We offer a five working days’ cooling off period for new members, effective from the day your application is accepted. This will allow you to cancel your subscription with only a small administrative penalty of not more than £30. If you wish to cancel your new member subscription, you must notify us within these five working days in writing, by letter, fax or e mail.
4. Professional Development and Conduct
By proceeding with this application you are confirming that, as a member of the NRPT, you will be committed to the development of others and that you intend to develop your personal training skills and professionalism continuously. You are also agreeing to abide by the NRPT’s Code of Ethics.
All NRPT members sign up to this Code on joining, and reaffirm their commitment on an annual basis. Failure to adhere to the code, resulting in a formal complaint made against you, may result in a disciplinary procedure or removal of NRPT membership.
5. Right to Refuse Applications
We reserve the right not to fulfil, or to cancel, your application if we are unable to obtain payment authorisation from the issuer of your card or from your bank. If you have been convicted of a criminal offence which is not yet spent, or have a prosecution pending, this must be declared.
If you are accepted into membership, but it subsequently turns out that any or all of the information provided by you was misleading or false, we reserve the right to revoke the membership with immediate effect, without the right of appeal.
6. Force Majeure
Neither party shall be liable to the other for any delay or non performance of its obligations by reason of matters beyond its control including, but not limited to, any act of terrorism, war, riot, civil commotion, compliance with any law or government order, fire, flood or storm, strikes, or any other industrial dispute, delay in transit, power failure, postal delay, server malfunction or any event that cannot be reasonably be planned for or avoided.
7. Cancellations and Refunds
Your NRPT Membership is an annual agreement which will not automatically renew. You will receive a renewal notice in advance of the anniversary of your application date, informing you of your entitlement to renew your membership.
No refunds will be provided after the five working days "cooling off" period as detailed in point 3 above.
Once renewal of your membership has occurred, it will still be possible to cancel your membership, but we are not obliged to offer a refund.
8. Price Information
Fees displayed on the application section of the website will prevail at all times in relation to orders placed online.
You may make a one-off payment for a one year membership subscription, new or renewal, by credit/debit card or cheque to our offices.
We reserve the right to increase the price of the membership subscription on an annual basis. You will be informed of any fee increase within your renewal letter. If we discover an error in the price of your membership subscription, we will inform you as soon as is reasonably possible.
Fees are for individual membership only.
9. Credit Card Payment
If you are not using your own credit/debit card to pay for the membership subscription, you must ask the permission of the credit/debit card holder before entering the payment details.
When you offer to subscribe to NRPT either online or verbally, you are confirming that you have obtained the express prior permission of the credit/debit card holder.
Our liability to you will not extend to any membership related benefits, goods or services provided by an external provider. We specifically exclude liability for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of your involvement in whatever manner with an external provider.
These Terms and Conditions do not and shall not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.
