CHELSEY MARIE'S NUTRITION ACADEMY IS A HOLISTIC HEALTH COACHING PROGRAM WHICH INCORPORATES A METABOLIC BALANCE FOOD PLAN CREATED AND DESIGNED BY METABOLIC BALANCE. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM. IF ANYTHING IS UNCLEAN, PLEASE ASK.
The Program in which you are about to enroll in will include the following:
- Six 50-minute group coaching calls each week for eight weeks, which will include a discussion of all participants progress and recommendations made be Chelsey Marie Fellmeth
- A variety of handouts, video's and other materials.
As your Coach, I understand that my clients have busy schedules and I take pride in not keeping them waiting or keeping them longer than planned. Each group coaching call will end 50 minutes after it was scheduled to begin. Please be on time. If the Client can not attend the call then he or she forfeits the coaching session and will not have an opportunity to reschedule it.
PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS
The Client understands that the regular cost of the Program is $1499. However, registration today is only $1399, unless a coupon discount has been applied.
The Client may try the program for two weeks, until March 12th, 2017. If the Client does the homework for the two weeks that have been released and attend one of the two group coaching calls and is unhappy with the material that’s been delivered, than he or she can receive a refund for the coaching material, not including cost of the METABOLIC BALANCE FOOD PLAN or blood work cost. There is a strict zero refund for both the Client's food plan generated by metabolic balance and blood work. Once the Client has paid for Chelsey Marie's Nutrition Academy Program, a form of requisition will be sent to the Client giving them access to receive blood work through LifeLab's or Valley Medical Laboratories. This means that the cost of blood work will be an automatic non-refundable cost to the Client. Once the Client has filled out and submitted their personal information to receive their personal food plan brought to them by METABOLIC BALANCE, the Client will have another $250 non-refundable cost that cannot be refunded from the total cost of their enrollment. This tally's a total of $500 which include cost of blood work, meal plan, time imputing results, and charges that may have been applied to Chelsey Marie Fellmeth as part of the Client's enrollment. A total of up to $500 will be non-refundable to the Client even before thier two week trial is up. However, their meal plan and blood work results remain their forever.
Once the Client has paid for enrollment to attend Chelsey Marie's Nutrition Academy Program the cost of the Client's personal food plan and blood work are paid out by Chelsey Marie Fellmeth to METABOLIC BALANCE. Since these are paid out services and are both a ‘non-retrievable product’ no refund can be put into place.
Important: In order to be eligible for the course material content refund created and delivered by (Chelsey Marie Coaching) (Chelsey Marie's Nutrition Academy Program) the Client must submit all the homework completed for the two weeks released and attend one of the two group coaching calls.
In the event of the Client’s absence or withdrawal after the two weeks period, for any reason whatsoever, the Client will remain responsible for the full payment of the program.
The Coach reserves the right to remove the Client from Nutrition Academy and cancel their program if at any point she or he feels it is not advantageous for the Client to remain involved in coaching program . If this happens, the Client is only responsible for the payment of his/her metabolic balance meal plan and blood work.
The Client understands that the role of the Health Coach (Chelsey Marie Fellmeth) is not to prescribe or assess micro- and macronutrient levels; provide health care, medical or nutrition therapy services; or to diagnose, treat or cure any disease, condition or other physical or mental ailment of the human body. Rather, the Coach is a mentor and guide who has been trained in holistic health coaching to help clients reach their own health goals by helping clients devise and implement positive, sustainable lifestyle changes. The Client understands that the Coach is not acting in the capacity of a doctor, licensed dietician-nutritionist, psychologist or other licensed or registered professional, and that any advice given by the Coach is not meant to take the place of advice by these professionals. If the Client is under the care of a health care professional or currently uses prescription medications, the Client should discuss any dietary changes or potential dietary supplements use with his or her doctor, and should not discontinue any prescription medications without first consulting his or her doctor.
