Effective Date: 03/30/2020
1. AGREEMENT: These terms and conditions constitute a continuing sale Agreement between Life Fitness, Brunswick Billiards, Cybex, SCIFIT or Indoor Cycling Group (ICG) (hereinafter collectively referred to as "LF") and Buyer for all products, parts and/or services provided by LF to Buyer. No other terms and conditions nor modifications hereof shall be binding upon the parties unless accepted in writing by LF. If Buyer uses its own purchase order form to place orders for products, parts and/or services, any terms and conditions on its form which are in addition to or inconsistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement are null and void.
2. DELIVERY: LF shall use its best efforts in the ordinary course of business to affect deliveries to Buyer as specified. In no event shall LF be liable for any damages, consequential, incidental, liquidated or otherwise, arising from LF’s failure to meet any delivery date. Delays at Buyer’s request or due to Buyer’s failure may result in storage fees.
3. PARTIAL SHIPMENT: As products and/or parts ordered by Buyer become available, LF may make partial shipments and each shipment shall be invoiced separately. Partial shipments shall not relieve Buyer from its obligation to accept shipment of the remainder of the order.
4. RISK OF LOSS: Title and risk of loss of the products and/or parts passes to Buyer at the time the products and/or parts are delivered to the carrier for shipment. The F.O.B. point is LF’s designated plant, distribution center, or warehouse unless otherwise specified.
5. PAYMENT: LF shall invoice Buyer for the purchase price of each of the products and/or parts shipped and/or services rendered pursuant to this Agreement. The invoice shall be in USD and shall include charges (as applicable) for freight, handling, taxes and other amounts payable to LF. All amounts specified on the invoice shall be paid by Buyer to LF within thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice or pursuant to such other terms as LF may agree. LF may require payment in advance of all or any part of the purchase price of any product, part and/or service. Payment terms and credit lines are subject to LF’s credit approval. Until LF receives payment in full for the products and/ or parts, Buyer grants LF a security interest in and a lien on all products and/ or parts and, upon request, Buyer may be required to execute UCC statements evidencing LF’s security interest/ lien. Payments not made by Buyer on or before the due date shall bear interest at one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less. Such interest shall be in addition to and without limitation of any other rights or remedies which LF may have under this Agreement or at law or in equity. Buyer agrees to pay any attorney's fees and costs incurred by LF in enforcing its rights under this Agreement. Buyer is responsible for all applicable sales, use and/ or excise taxes for the purchase of products, parts and/or services. Taxes are in addition to the sales price unless Buyer presents a valid tax exemption certificate.
6. GOVERNING LAW & COMPLIANCE: This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois. The exclusive jurisdiction for dispute resolution shall be in Circuit Court, Cook County, Illinois or the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
7. RETURNS: Within thirty (30) days of delivery, Buyer may contact LF to discuss return options, which may include, at LF’s sole discretion, (A) return of new, unused products and/or parts for credit; or (B) return of non-stocked or used products and/or parts for a repurchase price. Approved credits or repurchase prices will not include freight, fuel and installation charges incurred by LF. Authorized returns require a Return Material Authorization (RMA) Number. To obtain an RMA number contact LF at 1.800.735.3867. The returned product and/or part must be returned in its original packaging, as applicable with the RMA number boldly written on the outside of the package. LF assumes no responsibility for damage caused by shipping or improper packaging. Each returned product and/or part is subject to a re-stocking fee of twenty percent (20%) of the purchase price.
8. CANCELED ORDERS: Shipped orders which are refused by Buyer or orders canceled after shipment or production begins for Built-to-Order products and/or parts are subject to a restocking fee of twenty percent (20%) of the purchase price.
9. ACCEPTANCE BY BUYER: Products and/or parts shall be deemed accepted by Buyer on the date they are received by Buyer unless, within fifteen (15) days after receipt, Buyer gives LF written notice that the products and/or parts are not accepted and specifies in detail the reasons therefor. LF may then, at its sole discretion, proceed to make any necessary corrections, in which case such corrective action by LF shall be Buyer’s sole remedy for non-acceptance of a product and/or part. Upon completion and acceptance of such corrections, the products and/or parts shall be deemed accepted by Buyer. Under no circumstances shall Buyer be entitled to revoke Buyer’s acceptance of the product and/part.
10. WARRANTY: (A) Products: Each product has its own limited manufacturer’s warranty (see www.lifefitness.com, www.brunswickbilliards.com, www.cybexintl.com, www.scifit.com, www.teamicg.com).

(B-1) Parts (Life Fitness and Hammer Strength branded products only): Parts shall have the following limited warranty: Parts are warranted to the original Buyer for ninety (90) days from the date they are received. Such warranty shall be Buyer's exclusive remedy for any breach of warranty. To make a claim (parts only) during the warranty period, Buyer must contact LF for an RMA Number (see Paragraph 7). For Non-Consumable (NC) part claims, Buyer will be subject to an “Unreturned Equipment Charge” which may be the price of the replacement part, if the replaced NC part is not returned within thirty (30) days of opening the claim. If, in LF's sole discretion, the part is damaged due to accident, misuse, abuse, fire, flood, events of force majeure, or other contingencies beyond LF’s control, LF may deny the claim, in which case Buyer shall not be entitled to a credit, and any replacement parts must be purchased pursuant to LF's credit terms. (B-2) Parts (Billiards and related products only): Parts shall have the following limited warranty: Parts are warranted to the original Buyer for a period not to exceed the original warranty of the product purchased.

15. FORCE MAJEURE: Delay in or failure to carry out the duties imposed upon either party (except Buyer’s duty to make invoiced payments to LF) under this Agreement shall not constitute default hereunder or give rise to any claim for damages if such delay or failure results directly or indirectly from acts of God, pandemic or epidemic, diseases, quarantines, unavoidable casualties, concealed conditions, acts of any civil or military authority; riot, insurrections, and civil disturbances; war, invasion, act of foreign enemies, hostilities (regardless of whether or not war is declared), rebellion, revolution, terrorist activities; strikes, lockouts or other labor disputes; government sanction; embargoes; shortage or unavailability of labor, supplies, materials, equipment or systems; fire, transportation contingencies; laws, statutes, regulations, and other legal requirements, orders or judgments; acts or order of any government or agency or official thereof, other catastrophes or any other similar occurrences beyond such party’s reasonable control, all of the aforesaid being herein for convenience referred to as “events of force majeure.” In the event that LF’s work is delayed, impeded or rendered costlier by an event of force majeure, LF shall provide Buyer with at least ten (10) days’ prior written notice advising Buyer of any price increase.
