Terms & Agreements
For Holistic Exercise Coaching Engagements with Kyung-sun Baek
THE COACHING RELATIONSHIP
As I work with two different (yet very complimentary) modalities, GYROTONIC® Exercise and UZAZU embodied life coaching, let’s clarify each one. Please read whichever might apply to you.
For GYROTONIC® Exercise Sessions:
In our GYROTONIC® exercise coaching sessions, my primary focus is to guide you through a progressive series of gentle strength, flexibility, flow and coordination-building movement sequences, primarily making use of (but not limited to) the GYROTONIC® Pulley Expansion exercise apparatus in my studio.
In keeping with a “holistic” approach to fitness and mind-body health in general, in these sessions, we may also discuss, albeit more informally, issues such as sleep patterns, diet, other complimentary physical activities & exercises—and anything else we feel may support you to become more healthy, fit and full of vitality.
While the focus is more focused on the “physical level” in our GYROTONIC® sessions, I periodically ask my GYROTONIC® clients to fill in the “UZAZU Eight Life Areas Quick-Self-Assessment” (typically at the start of our work together and then a bit later on as well) so we can more consciously do our GYROTONIC®exercises in a way and with a mindset that optimally supports the rest of your life.
Understand that all forms of body conditioning, including the GYROTONIC® Expansion System, has inherent risks which, despite reasonable precautions, could lead to serious injury. In working together you agree to assume the risk and further agree follow the prescribed safety indications and follow instructions as to how to perform the exercises.
If you have any significant health concerns, especially if you haven't exercised for some time, you should consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise program such as this. You may refer your healthcare practitioner to www.gyrotonic.com so they may evaluate it’s appropriateness.
For UZAZU Embodied Life Coaching Sessions:
In our UZAZU embodied life coaching sessions, I am here to serve as a support, guide, coach and partner in your ongoing discovery, growth, integration, on a deeper personal, mental-emotional level.
Our focus, in these sessions, is to free up and make available from within you the emotional and mental energy, insight and inspiration that will naturally empower you to live more of the life you want to live.
Keep in mind, our coaching process is not a replacement for psychotherapy and I, Kyung-sun Baek, am not a certified psychotherapist. While from time to time I may give you self-assessments to complete, offer my reflections, ideas and personal observations on any number of personal and professional matters, I do not diagnose or treat disorders, nor offer business and financial advice. (That’s the official disclaimer part.)
The UZAZU embodied life coaching sessions you experience with me, while typically working very well on their own, can also be very effective either as a precursor, complement, or follow-up to professional therapeutic services. If you are currently receiving any other related support, I encourage you to inform each of us about the other’s work with you so your overall process can be optimally effective.
THE COACHING SESSIONS
Length of Sessions:
GYROTONIC® session are 60 minutes and the UZAZU sessions run 75 minutes. It’s good to reserve a about 90 minutes for these session to allow for us to potentially go a few minutes overtime and a moment for you to not need to rush off.
Starting on time is important. If you arrive late for a session, I reserve the right to still finish our session at the originally appointed end-time. Please, always contact me by cell phone at (207) 841-5770 and let me know if you are running late (call or text, not email). If I don't hear from you within 15 minutes of our scheduled start time, then I will deem the session a "no show" and it will be counted towards your total session package.
Session Cancellation Policy:
All scheduled appointments must be cancelled with 24-hours advance notice to avoid being charged for the session. There is some flexibility in this policy for emergency situations, but please be aware that in most cases if you cancel less than 24 hours before our session start time your reserved session will be billed.
FEES AND EXPENSES
An Initial Exploratory Session:
In certain cases, at certain times, I offer an initial, no-fee exploratory session for you to get a better sense of what it’s like to work with me, if GYROTONIC® exercise and/or UZAZU Mind-body based Life Coaching is a good fit for you and for me to get a better sense of how I can best serve you.
Coaching Package Fees & Billing:
Coaching Packages are billed either monthly or all at once in a “single pay” option (at a reduced rate). Paying for a larger bundle of sessions further reduces your per-session cost. As a general rule, I don’t offer single sessions of either my GYROTONIC® or UZAZU coaching sessions
You can pay me in person in cash or check after our first session together, or beforehand via the online billing system on my site, which accepts all major credit cards. If you choose monthly billing, your card will be automatically billed at the same day each month until the expiration of that agreement.
A 30-DAY GUARANTEE
To help ensure your satisfaction, and minimize any risk to you, I offer a full 30-day guarantee on all my coaching packages.
If you feel, within the first 30 days of signing up to work together with me, that your sessions have not seemed a good investment of your time and money, then I will immediately issue you a full refund. I will just ask you to help me by giving some feedback on how you feel I could have helped you more and/or where our expectations were out of alignment.
TERMINATION AND/OR RENEWAL OF COACHING SERVICES
Once the 30-day guarantee period has elapsed, it is understood that unless I as your coach fail to fulfill my role and responsibilities in some significant way, you are now committed to the program and payment schedule as laid out in your package.
At some point during the last 1 or 2 sessions of your package, we will reflect on where you currently are in your process, what you have achieved and what appears to lie ahead. We can also discuss then if and when it might be appropriate to engage in a next series of coaching sessions.
General Confidentiality Commitment:
Your identity, our coach-client relationship, and nature and content of your work with me, including anything we may discuss will remain private and confidential, and neither myself nor anyone I work with will share any information about you and our work together with a third party without your express consent.
I may ask you at some point during or after our process to share a testimonial about the results you are experiencing, but this is always entirely at your own discretion.
Exceptional Exceptions to Confidentiality:
In the event that I believes there is clear and imminent danger to the life and physical safety of one of my clients or others in their life, I may need to disclose selected information in order to make appropriate and potentially life-saving interventions.
Additionally, in highly unusual circumstances, legal requirements may demand that confidential material be revealed.
