1. Scope of Fittcoach Services
1.1 The Fittcoach Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (“Members”) and certain third parties who offer services (Members and third parties who offer services are “Fittcoach Trainer” and the services they offer are “Personal Training Services”) to publish such Personal Training Services on the Fittcoach Platform (“Listings”) and to communicate and transact directly with Members that are seeking to book such Personal Training Services (Members using Personal Training Services are “Clients”). Personal Training Services may include the offering of Fitness Classes or Fitness Consultations for Client use ("Personal Training Sessions").
1.2 As the provider of the Fittcoach Platform, Fittcoach Inc. does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Listings or Personal Training Services. Fittcoach Trainers alone are responsible for their Listings and Personal Training Services. When Members make or accept a booking, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Fittcoach Inc.is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is Fittcoach Inc. an insurer. Fittcoach Inc. is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except as specified in the Payment Terms.

Fittcoach Inc. does not endorse any Member, Listing or Personal Training Services. Any references to a Member being "verified" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Fittcoach Inc. about any Member, including of the Member's identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to train privately or publicly, or use other Personal Training Services, accept a booking request from a Client, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Listing at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by Fittcoach Inc. of any Fittcoach Trainer or Listing.
1.4 If you choose to use the Fittcoach Platform as a Fittcoach Trainer your relationship with Fittcoach Inc. is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Fittcoach Inc. for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Fittcoach Inc.
