MEMBERSHIP POLICIES & DOJYM RULES
Elevo Dynamics designed the Membership Policies and the DOJYM Rules, to include rules listed here as well as those posted in the DOJYM, to ensure a safer and more enjoyable environment in which to exercise and train. Please be thoughtful and observe the Policies and Rules that you, and all members, have agreed to abide by. Elevo Dynamics maintains the right to modify any of the Policies and Rules at any time without notice. It is your responsibility to know and follow the most current Policies and Rules. All approved signs posted in the DOJYM or on the premises shall be considered a part of the Policies and Rules of Elevo Dynamics.
The following Policies/Rules replace all previous Policies/Rules. If there is any conflict between these Policies and the posted DOJYM Rules, these Policies/Rules apply.
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY POLICY STATEMENT
Elevo Dynamics seeks, enrolls and maintains memberships without regard to race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, any disabilities or conditions, marital status, sex, sexual orientation or age. It is further DOJYM policy that no circumstance or conduct undertaken by DOJYM personnel shall have the effect of discrimination on the basis of any of the aforementioned classifications.
Please consult our Privacy Policies for a description of our practices with respect to collection, sharing and privacy of your personal information.
With your membership, you will be enrolled in our key-card system. The key-card will be personalized with your name downloaded on it. This will allow you access to the DOJYM 24 hours a day. When you use the card to enter into the DOJYM, a log is created in our system, therefore it is important that every member scan their card (even if you come with a friend, spouse, etc. No exceptions). If your card gets stolen or lost and needs to be replaced, there will be a $20 fee for a replacement card.
MEMBERSHIP FREEZE & CANCELATION POLICY
Qualification and Notice Requirements: Elevo Dynamics will only freeze your membership if you are in good standing, you have all initiation fees paid, you are current on your monthly dues, you provide at least Thirty (30) days (Four weeks) before your next billing, Written notice on a Freeze Request Form to allow Elevo Dynamics to process your request, and you qualify for one of the three (3) categories below:
–Medical Disability: You must provide Elevo Dynamics with verification from your physician stating that your medical disability will prevent you from using Elevo Dynamics’ facilities. The minimum term for a medical freeze is three (3) months and the maximum is six (6) months. If the disability renders you unable to use the facility and/or the facility services for longer than (6) months then you will be able to cancel provided you have documentation that proves your disability is the cause of your need to cancel.
–Active Duty Military Transfer or Extended Volunteer Assignment: You must provide Elevo Dynamics with a copy of your transfer, deployment or extended volunteer assignment orders. The minimum time for a freeze is 3 months. The maximum time for a freeze is 12 months.

–Temporary Employment Transfer: You must provide Elevo Dynamics with verification from your employer, on company letterhead, that you are being temporarily transferred. The minimum term for a temporary employment transfer freeze is three (3) months and the maximum freeze is six (6) months.
-Dues During Freeze or Cancellation: Once Elevo Dynamics approves a membership freeze, no further dues will be collected with respect to such time.

-Freeze Request Decisions: If your request does not conform to this Membership Freeze and Cancellation Policy, you will be notified that your request has been denied and your membership shall remain active.
