Policies and Waivers

30 Day Cancellation & Refund Policy

CFDC requires a 30 day written notice via email to terminate membership at the studio. We will no longer accept termination via front desk staff, phone call or phone message. All monthly memberships require a minimum of 30 days written notice (via email) prior to next billing date to assure cancellation of automatic payments. Cancellation requests submitted within the 30 day billing cycle will result in a final payment drawn from your account on your established auto draft date.

Refunds will not be provided for any reason. CFDC will not provide credit, refunds, or prorated billing for memberships that are canceled mid-month. In such a circumstance, you will continue to have access to your membership until the end of the monthly billing cycle. CFDC reserves the right to offer refunds, discounts or other considerations in select circumstances at its sole discretion. Please note that each circumstance is unique and election to make such an offer in one instance does not create the obligation to do so in another.
