14. Health Disclaimer
The Service provides weight loss management and information applications and content published over the Internet and is intended only to assist users in their personal weight loss efforts. TIU is not a medical organization and our staff cannot give you medical advice or diagnosis. Nothing contained in the Service should be construed as such advice or diagnosis. The information and reports generated by us should not be interpreted as a substitute for physician consultation, evaluation, or treatment.
You are urged and advised to seek the advice of a physician before beginning any weight loss effort or regimen. The Service is intended for use only by healthy adult individuals. Except for our pre-natal workouts, which are offered to our pregnant and post-partum members, the Service is not intended for use by minors, pregnant women, or individuals with any type of health condition. All individuals, regardless of condition, should seek professional medical advice and clearance prior to initiating any form of weight loss effort or fitness regimen. There are inherent risks associated with exercise and fitness programs, and individuals engage in these activities at their own risks.
All information is intended for your general knowledge only and is not a substitute for medical advice or treatment for specific medical conditions. This information on the Service has not been evaluated by the FDA and is not intended to treat, diagnose, cure or prevent any disease. We cannot and do not give you medical advice. You should seek prompt medical care for any specific health issues and consult your physician before purchasing any product(s). We do not recommend the self-management of health problems. Information obtained by using our services is not exhaustive and does not cover all diseases, ailments, physical conditions or their treatment.
If you are being treated for an illness, taking prescription medication, or following a therapeutic diet to treat a disease, it is especially important to show the “Tone It Up Fat Burning System” weight loss plan (“Plan”) to your physician. Any modifications made to the Plan by your physician should be followed.
The Plan is designed for a safe rate of weight loss – up to two pounds per week (after the first three week). If you lose at a greater rate, you must review the Plan’s guidelines and adapt them, if necessary, to avoid rapid weight loss. Not following the Plan as designed may pose the risk of developing health complications associated with rapid weight loss.

18. Governing Law and Choice of Forum
These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to the Terms and Conditions or your use of the Sites shall be filed only in the Superior Court of Los Angeles County, California, or the United States District Court for the Central District of California, and except as stated herein you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action, or proceeding arising out of the Terms and Conditions. Notwithstanding the above, any controversy or claim related to this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively by arbitration in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9, U. S. Code) (the “Act”). The Act will apply even though this Agreement provides that it is governed by the laws of California. Arbitration proceedings will be determined in accordance with the Act, the rules and procedures for the arbitration of financial services disputes of JAMS/Endispute, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company or any successor thereof (“JAMS”), except that discovery in said arbitration shall be limited in scope to the specifics of liability on the Claim, and any discovery related to damages calculations or any financials shall be withheld until after liability has been decided by the arbitrator(s). In the event of any inconsistency between the JAMS rules and this paragraph, the terms of this paragraph shall control. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS and conducted in Los Angeles, California. All Claims shall be determined by one arbitrator; however, if Claims exceed Five Million Dollars, upon the request of either TIU or You, the Claims shall be decided by three arbitrators. All arbitration hearings shall commence within ninety (90) days of the demand for arbitration and close within ninety (90) days of commencement and the award of the arbitrator(s) shall be issued within thirty (30) days of the close of the hearing. However, the arbitrator(s), upon a showing of good cause, may extend the commencement of the hearing for up to an additional sixty (60) days. The arbitrator(s) shall provide a concise written statement of reasons for the award. The arbitration award may be submitted to any court having jurisdiction to be confirmed and enforced. The arbitrator(s) will have the authority to decide whether any Claim is barred by the statute of limitations and, if so, to dismiss the arbitration on that basis. For purposes of the application of the statute of limitations, the service on JAMS under applicable JAMS rules of a notice of Claim is the equivalent of the filing of a lawsuit. Any dispute concerning this arbitration provision or whether a Claim is arbitrable shall be determined by the arbitrator(s). The arbitrator(s) shall have the power to award legal fees pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. This paragraph does not limit the right of TIU to: (i) exercise self-help remedies, such as, but not limited to, setoff; (ii) initiate judicial or non-judicial foreclosure against any real or personal property collateral; (iii) exercise any judicial or power of sale rights, or (iv) act in a court of law to obtain an interim remedy, such as, but not limited to, injunctive relief, writ of possession or appointment of a receiver, or additional or supplementary remedies. The prevailing party in any action or arbitration related to these Terms and Conditions shall be entitled to its reasonable attorney fees and costs.
The terms of this paragraph survive any termination of the Terms and Conditions.
These Terms & Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to your use of this Website or these Terms & Conditions shall be filed only in the state or federal courts located in Los Angeles County in the State of California and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action.

In any action against us arising from the use of the Service, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover all legal expenses incurred in connection with the action, including but not limited to its costs, both taxable and non-taxable, and reasonable attorney’s fees.
If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

If you are a subscriber to one of our online subscription offerings or products, in the event of any conflict between these Terms & Conditions and the Subscription Agreement, the Subscription Agreement shall control.

We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms & Conditions. These Terms & Conditions will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns and licensees. The failure of either party to insist upon or enforce the strict performance of the other party with respect to any provision of these Terms & Conditions, or to exercise any right under the Terms & Conditions, will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of such party’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance; rather, the same will be and remain in full force and effect.
