*The fine print: Monthly commitment required for The Runner, The Stronger Runner and the Total Transformation Plan. The Plan will auto-renew each month for 12 months, and is available from January to July to accommodate those that wish to re-join FAST's running group each year.  Member agrees to pay the monthly fee for 12 months, with the understanding that the plan can only be cancelled by giving Coach Flash a written/texted 30 day's notice.  If someone wishes to make a change their Membership plan, they may do so up to once a year by giving Coach Flash a texted 30 day's notice.  PayPal account or other automatically generated monthly payment service required to join.  If Member wishes to upgrade, must notify Coach Flash by text. In subscribing to my plan of choice,

Member acknowledges and accept that Coach Flash will be competing at various competitions locally, Nationally and Worldwide, and may be absent for as many as 18 classes in a year’s time. In some scenarios, practice will consist of a workout that will be done without the assistance of Coach Flash, or with a substitute coach or captain, but the workout will be provided for the group to do. In rare cases of really bad weather, practice may be cancelled or postponed. Member willingly accepts this monthly charge, knowing they might encounter an illness, injury or go on vacation. I know that they are under no obligation to show up for as many classes being held each month, and accept that there are no refunds for missed classes. Missed classes do not carry over from one month to the next.
