Onsite Terms & Conditions. 

Thank you for your interest in Back to Life Studios. We look forward to helping you get to back to living a life that is aligned with your personal goals of being fit, mobile, healthy, strong, mindful and ultimately happier.

These terms and conditions (T&Cs) apply when we supply you with our services. If you proceed with engaging us after having the opportunity to review these T&Cs, you are deemed to have accepted them and they form a binding agreement between us. If you do not agree with these T&Cs, you should not engage us.

Back to Life Studios is a registered business ABN 16 987 629 544. We are an Australian owned boutique wellness studio based in Bendigo, Victoria. We offer an holistic approach to optimal health and wellbeing through our range of products and services.

Helping you Achieve your Goals

Our support is provided to educate you to make decisions about your health and wellbeing and to support you to set and achieve your goals. Any changes you make to your lifestyle or diet are entirely your own decision and you are responsible for making your own enquiries and consulting your healthcare providers before implementing them.

Tailoring Our Services

When you engage us to provide you with services such as:

  • pilates classes;

  • health coaching; and

  • other health and wellbeing services,

    whether on-site, online or part of a retreat, we ask you to give us details about your medical history, medical conditions, physical limitations and anything else we should be aware of. The information you provide is used to tailor our support to you. We are not medical professionals and you should ensure that you have discussed your plans with a medical professional and had their approval before you embark on any new health or wellness initiative. We may ask for your consent to clarify any limitations with your GP and other allied health providers.

    Our plans are tailored for each person, are copyright and must not be copied or shared. If you find our plans to be helpful, we ask that you support our small business by referring your friends to us so that they can experience our tailored support for themselves.

    Our Fees

    Our rates are subject to change at any time. Our fees are to be paid in advance to secure your preferred appointment time.

    If for any reason we provide a service to you and you do not pay your invoice on time, unfortunately we will be required to pass on interest at 10% annually, calculated monthly plus associated legal fees and/or debt collector fees.

    Different payment methods may be offered via third party providers. All payment providers have their own terms and conditions which apply in addition to ours. It is your responsibility to read and accept them.


    We reserve the right to refuse service to any person for any reason in our absolute discretion without any liability to you. We will provide you as much notice as is practicable

in the circumstances. Where we do so, we will refund all fees paid by you in relation to the cancelled service.

You will not be entitled to claim any compensation for any loss, expense or damage (either direct or consequential) or for any loss of time or inconvenience, because of a cancellation.

We understand that sometimes things don’t go according to plan, so if you need to cancel, we get it. We ask that you let us know as soon as possible. We encourage you to rebook for another time wherever possible.

Any cancellations within 24 hours of your booking will unfortunately result in you losing the entire fee. This is because we will have not taken any other bookings at the time that your booking was for.

We will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform our obligations if such delay is due to any circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

You are Responsible for your Safety

Many of the services that we offer come with a risk to your health and safety. This means it is vital that we both have an accurate understanding of your health and fitness and you tell us of all relevant conditions and limitations – before we start providing services, when anything changes and regularly if we are providing services on an ongoing basis.

We will provide you with instructions on proper use of the facilities and equipment before we provide you with services. If you are not confident or do not understand those instructions, it is your responsibility to seek clarification. You should not use any facilities or equipment until you have received and understood our instructions on how to use them.

All activities involving physical fitness and activity carry risk. If you are pregnant or have any physical or mental restriction, disability, vulnerability, or condition which makes you susceptible to injury, you should consult your chosen medical professionals. You should not participate if your health or wellbeing is in any way at risk.

You agree that all services are obtained at your sole risk subject only to our express obligations which cannot be excluded by law.

You must not do or fail to do something that could cause you or another person injury or harm.

Consideration for Other Members

We require all of our participants to have consideration for other members. If from time to time, you hear conversations between your instructor and another member that is of a personal or sensitive nature, you must respect their privacy and not discuss those matters with anyone. This is a strict requirement with zero tolerance.

Photography and Recordings

You are not permitted to record any part of any classes unless we provide our consent. You must not take any photographs that include any other person unless that person has provided their consent.

We may take videos or photographs of classes or persons including for social media or for your file. Please notify us if you do not consent to any videos or photographs being taken or if you do not consent to them being used for marketing purposes and this will be honoured.

Concerns or Complaints

If you have any concerns or complaints at any time regarding our services or facilities, please raise it immediately with us to allow us the opportunity to correct it.

Third parties

Where we refer you to third parties whether they are affiliated with us or not, we take no responsibility for the products and services they deliver.

These are third parties to which the previous paragraph applies. Additionally, all travel is done at your own risk.

Whole Agreement

These T&Cs form the whole agreement between us and may not be varied orally. Our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy also apply to our relationship.

Applicable Law

The laws of Victoria, Australia govern these T&Cs. Where the Australian Consumer Law is applicable to your use of the services, our policies are to be read subject to that law, with any modifications as set out in our policies which are not made contrary to that law.

That does not invalidate the remaining provisions of these T&Cs or affect the validity or enforceability of that provision in any other jurisdiction.

These T&Cs were last updated on 1 July 2022.
