Terms of use

These Terms of Use are effective on 1 January 2016.

Welcome to Kaizen App! We’ve detailed some basic Terms of Use below – they’re all very self-explanatory but please ensure you read them thoroughly before using the Kaizen App. These terms and conditions are relevant to our app and our website, and the corresponding content, services, applications and functionality.

You will be required to complete a one-time registration upon downloading the Kaizen App in order to be able to use the complete spectrum of Kaizen App’s products and services.. Certain content, including general descriptions of Kaizen App are for viewing without registration.

Although some of our Kaizen Koaches are qualified personal trainers (as verified by a ‘blue tick’ on their profile), some are not – they just want to share their fitness secrets with you in a non-professional capacity. In any instance, please ensure to always consult a doctor before subscribing or interacting with any Training Guide or Workout on the Kaizen App. All of our services (provided by Kaizen App or a Kaizen Koach) are not a substitute or an alternative for information provided by a doctor. If any exercise within the Kaizen App causes you pain or discomfort, please stop immediately and consult a doctor. Kaizen App or the Kaizen Koaches cannot guarantee any weight loss, fitness improvements, health benefit or fitness result to the users of Kaizen App.

With the confirmation of these General Terms and Conditions, you confirm that you are solely responsible for your state of health.

We’re still new and always seeking to provide the best possible experience for our users.
