Do I need gym terms and conditions (T&C)?


Yes, like many other businesses, gyms and other fitness businesses need terms and conditions that are tailored to the nature of their business activities.

Fitness and wellness businesses have specific requirements. For instance, there is a certain level of risk and liability involved with customers using heavy machinery and equipment. As a fitness business, it's important that your T&Cs (along with your other contracts!) cover these key matters so as to limit your liability.

Health information in general is also treated very carefully under Australian privacy laws. As a fitness business, you may ask customers to disclose certain health information, such as pre-existing conditions that may render them more vulnerable to incidents or accidents on your premises.

In such cases, you'll need to comply closely with the Australian Privacy Principles and have the appropriate Privacy Policy in place.
