If you do not accept the present Terms and Conditions and the House Rules, you should not use Basic-Fit services or access to any of its Clubs. If any of the provisions contained in these Terms and Conditions were declared by any court or competent administration, illegal, void or unenforceable for any reason, that provision shall be deemed independent and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions herein. These Terms and Conditions, together with the particular conditions applicable to your plan (as defined in Clause 3) and the House Rules of Basic-Fit, constitute the legally binding agreement between the member and Basic-Fit (the "Contract"). By accessing our Clubs or making use of our services, you confirm that you have read, understood and accepted the Terms and Conditions. These General Terms and Conditions are applicable as of April 12th, 2024 for all plans subscribed as of that date.

When registering, you declare that you accept these terms and conditions and the house rules of Basic-Fit. You can find the terms and conditions and house rules at and or receive them at the reception desk at any Club. 

Basic-Fit: This refers to Basic Fit Germany GmbH and the services and products that we provide under the name Basic-Fit. 

Club: the physical place where Basic-Fit offers its fitness-related activities. This can also be your Home Club. 

Contract: the contract that is established between Basic-Fit and the member when an individual signs up for a Basic-Fit membership. These terms and conditions have to be accepted, when the contract is concluded, so they also form part of the agreement, as do specific terms and conditions and our house rules that may be applicable to extras. 

Effective date: The Contract becomes effective on the day on which you subscribe. In the event of weeks offered by the Welcome Offer or a promotion (e.g. 2 weeks for 0€), the annual membership will be extended according to the promotion or the Welcome Offer and the start of payment for the membership will be postponed. 

The effective date of contract will be postponed if you use a promotion which states this, for example “work out for 0€ for 2 weeks.” If you then register on 12 May, for example, the effective date of your contract will be 12 May, but the start of the payment of the fees and the permanence period will take place on May 26. In this example, the minimum contract period is then extended by two weeks. Of course, you can already use the gym in the period between 12 May and 26 May and, in the event of this promotion, this will not be subject to a payment, subject to Article 5.
