FITNESS & NUTRITION EXPERT CERTIFICATION PROGRAM REFUND POLICY

The deposit for this program is non-refundable but can be used as a credit toward future programs in the event you need to cancel your registration at anytime.

To receive the refund,  after participating in the program for 30 days following the start date and you show us that you’ve kept up with all the work including classes, quizzes, assignments and practical hours (you have to show us proof!), and for some crazy reason DO you not feel like you are growing personally and professionally, then we will be happy to return the investment.

But, you DO have to do the work.

The Fitness & Nutrition Expert program is for women who are committed to learning and growing in the fitness, nutrition and wellness fields, who want to spread the healthy love and get more clients, and NOT for people who just want to collect a piece paper to say they have it.

And we will be strict on this last point – you absolutely must do the work and submit within 30 days* to be eligible for a refund. In the event that you decide your purchase was not the right decision, within 30 days of enrollment, contact our support team at fne@fitchicks.ca and let us know you’d like a refund by the 30th day at 11:59 EST. You must include your coursework with your request for a refund. If you request a refund and do not include your coursework by the 30th day, you will not be granted a refund. There’s so much transformation waiting for you on the other side of this program, and since our main goal is for you to succeed, we aren’t afraid to give you some tough FIT CHICKS love when it comes to holding you accountable.

*Refunds will only be issued if all complete work is submitted by day 30 following program start date to fne@fitchicks.ca. If proof of work is not submitted by Day 30 following your registration date, no refunds will be granted. No exceptions or extensions will be provided.
