Gym Policies

We want you to help us take care of our clubs. We ask all our members to please wipe equipment before and after each use. Use of chalk is strictly prohibited to preserve integrity of equipment. Dropping weights is also prohibited as it may damage equipment. Be respectful of personal space of other members and mindful of sharing equipment with others.

If you have any questions, our team members are always available for help.

We offer personal training to all of our members. Stop by your home club to learn more about our comprehensive training packages that include meal plans, in club & at home workouts, and one on one sessions. Every member gets a free fitness consultation at the time of sign-up.

We request an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) through checking accounts for your convenience and protection. This allows us to bill your account without the hassle of updating an expired, invalid, or lost/stolen card. Any account that goes into default is subject to a late fee. A credit card may be used as an alternate form of payment, subject to applicable processing fees added.

You can sign up for an Avovle Fitness membership starting at the age of 13. Members ages 13-15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when they work out. Members who are 16 to 17 years old must have a signed membership contract from their legal guardian on file.
