HOW DO I FREEZE MY MEMBERSHIP?
The freeze policy allows you to temporarily suspend your membership in accordance with the following terms:
You may freeze your membership once per contractual year for a minimum of one (1) month and a maximum of three (3) consecutive months in one-month increments for a fee of $30 per month, payable in advance. Monthly members within their first year of membership will be charged regular monthly dues until they meet their one year obligation, after which they will be charged the freeze fee in full.
I AM PREGNANT AND I WANT TO FREEZE MY MEMBERSHIP.
Congratulations! If your doctor feels you are medically unable to use the club during your pregnancy, you can request a medical freeze for up to nine (9) months. You must provide a doctor’s letter at the time of requesting a pregnancy freeze. Equinox will waive the freeze fee for medical freezes.
I WANT TO CANCEL MY MEMBERSHIP. HOW DO I DO THAT?
If you are OUTSIDE of your first year of membership, you may cancel with the amount of notice spelled out on your membership agreement for any reason. You can cancel in club with a manager by giving the appropriate notice, filling out a cancellation form and paying a pro-rate to stop your billing. You will get a copy of the form as a receipt that the process is complete. If going into the club is not convenient, you can send a letter via registered mail to your home club. We will cancel the membership based on the appropriate amount of days notice, collect a pro-rate, and stop your billing. The post office will send you confirmation that we’ve received your letter as receipt of cancellation.
If you are INSIDE your first year of membership, you may cancel with appropriate notice (specified on your membership agreement) for the following reasons: relocation, medical or job loss.
RELOCATION: If you relocate more than 25 miles away from any Equinox, you may cancel your membership with proof of relocation, such as a utility bill, lease or deed to a house, or a letter from your human resources department stating you have been relocated to another region.
MEDICAL: If your doctor finds you medically unable to workout for more than six months, we will just need a letter from your physician. They do NOT need to give us specifics, just their medical opinion that you are unable to work out for at least six months. You may deliver this note in person to your club's General Manager and fill out a cancellation form, or you may send the doctor’s note with your request that your membership be canceled to your home club. Please include your most recent contact information in case we need to follow up with you.
CAN I CANCEL MY ACCOUNT ONLINE?
No. All cancellations must be done in club with a club manager or via registered or certified mail. Cancellations are processed this way to ensure you will get a receipt that your cancellation was received.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FREEZING AND CANCELING MY MEMBERSHIP?
A freeze is appropriate when you know approximately how long you will be gone. For example, if you will be away on business for three months, or your doctor feels your injury should be healed in less than six months, a freeze is the option you should choose. It is a defined amount of time without billing, or club usage, and your billing will automatically restart at the end of the freeze. Remember, if you are requesting a medical or pregnancy freeze, we will need medical documentation.
