Terms and condition
Bruce is a digital membership that gives you access to the best training with a single membership in your phone – freedom to work out wherever you want.
IM WITH BRUCE AB, org. no. 559037-5597 (Bruce), runs www.bruce.app (the Website) and related apps for iOS and Android (the App).
By registering as a User on the Website or in the App, you agree to these Terms and Conditions (the Terms) at the same time. Read the Terms properly as they regulate the relationship between you and Bruce.
A Member refers to a paying user of the App. A User refers to Members, as well as users of the Website and the App that have not yet paid for a membership. Each User has an Account that is used to log in to the App and on the Website.
Bruce reserves the right to change these Terms at any time.
Bruce offers a service (the Service) where Members through the App can book group training classes and check in for open training at gyms, studios and training facilities that Bruce collaborates with (Bruce partners).
When visiting Bruce partners, the Member must check in for classes or open training using the App and the partner's QR code. Once the code has been scanned the Member's entry ticket will appear in the App, which should then be presented to the staff.
The Bruce membership is personal and the Member is not entitled to transfer rights or obligations under the Terms to a third party.
Membership fee and payments
A flex membership (rolling membership) is per month and continues until the Member chooses to cancel it. The monthly cost is deducted on the last day of the current payment period. If the Member does not want to continue the membership, the Member has to cancel it before this, i.e. no later than 24 hours before the next period begins. For a commit membership (fixed term membership), monthly costs are deducted the same way, but can only be cancelled after the number of months the Member signed up for. No refunds are made for periods that are paid. If the Member has a commit membership then the Member has to ensure that a payment method is working throughout the entire term. If a payment fails and the membership is a commit membership, an invoice will be sent to the Member. If the payment is not made, the case may be sent to debt collection.
A commit membership of 12 months can be paused up to 50 days for each 12 month period. The minimum duration for each pause is 14 days. Flex memberships can not be paused. Once the membership is paused, pause credits are given corresponding to the amount paid for the paused period. The pause credits will then automatically be used for the next payment.
In special circumstances such as injury or illness, pausing is allowed for up to 365 days when providing a medical certificate. In connection to pregnancy, a pause of up to 6 months is allowed, longer pauses require a medical certificate.
Pausing of the membership always has to be done in advance. Pausing membership extends the contract period by the corresponding length.
If the Member wants to cancel their membership, 1 month's period of notice applies to all memberships. This means that the Member will be charged for the next payment period following their current payment period at the time of cancelling. Example: If the Member’s payment date is the 15th of each month and they cancel their membership no later than the 14th of April, their last payment period will be April 15 - May 14. If the Member cancels their membership on April 15, the last payment period will be May 15 - June 14.
A flex membership can be cancelled at any time. The Member can keep using the membership for the paid period. For a commit membership, the Service can not be cancelled during the term.
Right of withdrawal
According to Swedish law, the Member has the right of withdrawal (ångerrätt) for 14 days when purchasing goods and services remotely. In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the Member can not have used the membership for working out. The right of withdrawal is valid from the date of purchase. If the Member regrets the purchase, the Member should contact Bruce by emailing [email protected] within the specified time.
If the Member has purchased the membership via a third party, special conditions apply. Then the Member has to contact the third party.
The right of withdrawal does not apply to the purchase of individual classes at a specific time.
When inviting someone to Bruce with a code, the Member gets a discount on their membership amounting to the amount stated in the "Bruce Zero - invite friends" section in the Bruce app. The person the Member invites will receive the same discount from the time their membership is activated.
In order for the discount to be activated, the recipient of the Member’s invitation must be a new member or an old member who has not been active for 6 months.
As an inviting member, the Member’s monthly discount applies until further notice, as long as the recipient of the invitation continues to have an active and paid membership with Bruce.
As the recipient of the invitation, the Member’s monthly discount is valid until further notice, as long as the person who sent the invitation continues to have an active and paid membership with Bruce.
The discount is applied from the Member’s first payment when they become a member.
Changes in the Member’s monthly cost as a result of Bruce issuing monthly discounts or revoking monthly discounts (due to the Member’s friend canceling his/her membership in Bruce, or otherwise) have no effect on the training supply the Member has access to through their membership level.
As an inviting member, the Member’s monthly cost can at most go down to 0 in the Member’s local currency per month as a result of monthly discounts from Bruce Zero, regardless of how many members are invited. By using the Bruce Zero referral program, the Member agrees to be bound by these terms. Bruce reserves the right to change these terms or the terms of the referral program in general, including terminating or pausing it.
There is no limit to how many times a month the Member can work out, though there is a maximum of 1 visit (open training or class booking) per Bruce partner per day. There may also be weekly or monthly limits to how many times the Member can work out at specific Bruce partners. The Member can have a maximum of 3, 5 or 6 bookings at the same time depending on membership type.
The User can only be logged in to one device at a time. When logging in, and the User already is logged in on another device, they will be presented with the option to log out the other device. The User may log in 5 times over a period of 365 days. Any further login attempts will be blocked.
Each Bruce partner chooses the classes they want to make available to Bruce. Classes are not constant and may vary over time and without notice. Bruce can not guarantee access to a specific studio or certain classes. The Member is not entitled to cancel the Membership prematurely because the range of classes has changed or a studio has disappeared.
Cancellation of classes
Cancellations can usually be made up to 3 hours before a class starts without action, else it will count as a late cancellation. Exceptions are stated in the class description. If the Member makes a late cancellation, the Member gets 1 strike. Late cancellations can be made up until 10 minutes prior to a class starts.
Check-ins can usually be made up until 5 minutes prior to a class starts before they are counted as a late check-in. Exceptions are stated in the class description. 1 strike is given for 3 late check-ins made within 30 days. For a check-in to be valid, the Member is required to participate in the class. A check-in without participation is counted as a no-show.
If the Member doesn't attend a booked class, a no-show, the Member will immediately get 3 strikes.
If the Member gets 3 strikes, the Member will be blocked from booking new classes for 14 days. While blocked, the Member can still attend already booked classes and work out at gyms and other solo training. The Member can choose to wait for the block to expire or get unblocked instantly for a fee. The Member automatically gets rid of 1 strike every 30 days, calculated from the first strike.
If any late check-ins, late cancellations or no-shows are made when blocked, the block will be extended by:
- 1 day for late check-in
- 3 days for late cancellation
- 7 days for no-show
The number of days the Member is blocked affects the price of unblocking. When the block has been extended with 7 days, the price increases by the corresponding amount it costs to unblock.
It is not possible to pause the membership when blocked. If a block period spans an already scheduled pause, the pause will automatically be deleted.
When using Bruce Credits the following applies, instead of the strikes above:
Late cancellations: If the Member makes a late cancellation, 7 credits will be deducted, while the rest of the credits paid for the class will be refunded.
Missed class: If the Member misses a class, no credits will be refunded.
In order to use the Service, the Member needs to enter its full name and a profile picture that clearly shows the Member's face from the front. The account is personal and may not be shared. If the Member does not have a full name and profile picture, the membership may be locked without notice. No refund is made in these cases.
In order to check in at Bruce partners, the App may ask for the Member's location. The information is used to determine if the Member is at the correct location, and may be logged for troubleshooting purposes.
Operation and complaints
The Service is usually provided 24/7, every day of the week. However, Bruce does not warrant that the Service is free from errors or interruptions. In case of failure of the Service, Bruce shall always be given the opportunity to correct the error. Bruce is allowed to close the Service for maintenance for a reasonable amount of time.
A User who wishes to claim errors of the Service shall notify Bruce within a reasonable time by emailing [email protected].
A Member must follow the rules and regulations that apply at each Bruce partner.
When using the Service, it is not permitted to use any type of drugs or performance enhancers, with the exception of medicines prescribed by doctors. Doping controls may occur at some Bruce partner facilities.
Bruce reserves the right, with immediate effect and without explanation, to ban a Member from the Service or from a specific Bruce partner. Each Bruce partner also has the right to deny individual Members access to classes and open training.
Only one Account per person is allowed, and Bruce owns the right to delete duplicate Accounts at any time.
No refund will be made in cases where an Account is suspended or deleted.
Bruce shall not be held liable for failure or delay in the performance of the obligations under these Terms and Conditions, if such performance is delayed or hindered by the occurrence of an unforeseeable act or event which is beyond Bruce's control (Force Majeure Events).
Acts or events constituting Force Majeure Events include, but are not limited to, Acts of God, government intervention, directives or policies.
In the event of force majeure, Bruce shall take reasonable steps to mitigate the effects of the Force Majeure Event.
