The Optimize Platform provides Users with the opportunity to take workout classes and receive coaching from Partners solely for personal use.
Fitness Professional wishes to become a Partner in accordance with the terms of this AGREEMENT.
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises contained herein and other good and sufficient consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereto agree as follows

You possess active licenses or certifications for all credentials you hold yourself out as having on the Optimize Platform;
You are not currently, nor will you subsequently while a Partner be, bound by a non-compete agreement with a third party for services similar to the Partner Services or that would hinder your relationship and performance with Optimize Fitness in any way; and
You possess the requisite skills, experience, and training to assist Users with their fitness goals and workout routines through the Optimize Platform.
Verification. By enrolling as a Partner, you authorize Optimize Fitness to conduct any and all verifications, background checks, and reference checks necessary to confirm your compliance with this Section 1(b), including, but not limited to, checks performed by a third-party service. If Optimize Fitness, at any time and at its sole discretion, believes you are not in compliance with this Section 1, Optimize Fitness can terminate this AGREEMENT without notice to you.
License to Optimize Fitness. You grant to Optimize Fitness a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable license to all workouts, tips, trade secrets, training, personal bios, images, videos, and all other content (collectively, “Partner Content”) you use or post within the Optimize Platform for the term of this AGREEMENT and for a reasonable time thereafter that it takes for Optimize Fitness to remove your Partner Content from the Optimize Platform. You grant to Optimize Fitness the right to access, use, store, copy, modify, prepare derivative works of, distribute, publish, transmit, stream, broadcast, and otherwise exploit in any manner such Partner Content to provide and/or promote the Optimize Platform, in any media or platform.
Relationship Between Partners and Optimize Fitness. As a Partner, your relationship with Optimize Fitness is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, or joint venturer of Optimize Fitness for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Optimize Fitness. Optimize Fitness is not itself affiliated with any Partner or User.
Term. Except as provided in Section 1(c), this AGREEMENT is perpetual (“Term”). This AGREEMENT may be terminated at any time and for any reason by either Party with thirty (30) days’ written notice.
Subscription Fee Sharing.
To enjoy the full benefits of the Optimize Platform, including, without limitation, to use Partner Services, Users must purchase a subscription to the Optimize Platform (each, a “Subscription Fee”).

Year 1: Sixty percent (60%) of each Subscription Fee.

Year 2+: Seventy-five percent (75%) of each Subscription Fee.
Users will be subscribed to only one Partner at a time, with no minimum or maximum commitment. You will only receive a percentage of a Subscription Fee for the duration of time in which such User has subscribed to you and your Partner Services. Therefore, it is possible to receive a percentage of a Subscription Fee for less than one month.
Payment to you will be remitted monthly through a third-party payment platform using the account information you provide to Optimize Fitness. You are responsible for maintaining accurate and current account information to receive payment. If your information changes at any time, you must notify Optimize Fitness immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
