RAW Fitness has authorised and nominated  Baycorp Limited as our debt collection service. Failure to meet contractual obligations regarding payments will be forwarded to Baycorp to follow up if required.


The Member acknowledges that provision of services provided by the gym may change and for the purposes of this Contract is based on "entitlement" to use and not on actual use.

HQ Members agree to be bound by the rules of the Gym.

RAW HQ may remove entitlement of use of the Facility if the Member fails to comply with the rules of the facility or fails to make payment of any fee on the due date.

Increase in Fees

At any time after the end of the minimum term upon sending written notice (mail or email) to the Member's last known address the instalment amount may be increased.


RAW Online memberships can not be suspended.

HQ memberships may (at the discretion of RAW Fitness) suspend their membership and payments due to either serious illness/injury, working away and holidays. A minimum of 7 days’ notice in writing (email) is required.

All suspensions of HQ memberships are a minimum of 2 weeks at a time and will require a $25 a week maintenance fee unless a medical certificate for injury is supplied, then the fee will be waived. If the member wishes to cancel after the suspension, the standard cancellation policies apply as per the guidelines above.

Entire Agreement

This Contract constitutes the entire agreement, understanding and arrangement (express and implied) between the Member, and RAW Fitness relating to the subject matter of this Contract and supersedes and cancels any previous agreement, understanding and arrangement relating thereto whether written or oral.
