General Terms and Conditions
1.1. Scope and subject matter of the contract
These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter: GTC) set out the legal framework for the use of the Alpha Progression App, unless otherwise agreed.
The Alpha Progression App (hereinafter: App) is a strength training app that creates workout plans based on your needs and preferences, gives you progression recommendations, and allows you - among many other features - to record and evaluate your workouts.
You may only use the app if you are over 18 years old.
The contract language is English.
Provider of the app is:
Alpha Progression - Schnabel & Sinapius GbR
Phone: +49 171 7887 989
2.1. Free and paid services
You can use the app in the free basic version or the paid Pro version. If you use the basic version, the range of functions is limited. Only in the Pro version, all features are available to you. A pro feature is, for example, that you can have the app create training plans for you that are customized to your needs and preferences. You can test the Pro version for two (2) weeks for free.
The exact scope of services of the basic and Pro version is specified in the app description in the Apple App Store (hereinafter: App Store) or Google Play Store (hereinafter: Play Store) in the version valid at the time of conclusion of the contract.
2.2. Changes in the scope of services
You have no right to demand that the app contains certain content. We are entitled to change the scope of services of the app if this is reasonable under consideration of your interests.
3. Conclusion of the contract
3.1. App download
First, you need to download the app from the App Store or Play Store.
3.2. Basic version
If you decide to register, you must enter your email address and a password of your choice and click on "Sign up". You will then receive an email from us. The registration is only completed when you click on "Confirm registration" in this email and the successful confirmation of your registration is displayed in your browser.
3.3. Pro version and trial
You can purchase or try the Pro version as part of a subscription. To purchase or try the Pro version, you can click on content marked as paid in the app or click on "Try for free" on the website.
You can choose between a subscription with an initial term of (1) one month or a subscription with an initial term of (12) twelve months. When subscribing in the app, you will be redirected to the App Store or Play Store after selecting a subscription option. There, you usually have to confirm the purchase with your App Store or Play Store password. With this confirmation, the paid contract for the use of the Pro version is concluded. When subscribing via the website, after selecting a subscription plan and providing your AP email address you will be redirected to Stripe's checkout. The paid contract comes into effect after you have entered your address and payment details and confirmed the purchase.
Both subscription offers are preceded by a two-week trial period. During this trial period you can use the Pro version to its full extent. The initial term of your subscription will start only after the trial period has ended and you have not canceled the subscription during this trial period via the App Store, Play Store or via "Update subscription" on the website.
If you cancel your subscription during the trial period, your account will be downgraded to the basic version after the trial period ends. If you decide to subscribe at a later point in time, the initial term of the subscription will start immediately after you confirm your purchase in the App Store, Play Store or Stripe checkout - i.e. without a trial period. Each user is only allowed to go through the trial period once.
4. Your obligations
4.1. Health requirements
You use the app at your own risk. Your general health should be good. If you have known pre-existing conditions, you should consult a doctor to determine whether your physical conditions are suitable for training with the app. This is especially true if you know that you have or have had one or more of the following medical conditions / procedures / diseases:
(1) joint problems

The contents of the app are not to be regarded as medical advice. Accordingly, they are not a substitute for medical treatment or advice.
It is your responsibility to check the suitability of the given training contents within the framework of your individual health and physical conditions. Listen to your body. If, for example, you have joint pain during an exercise, then drop or replace this exercise with a comparable exercise that does not cause you pain. If, for example, the weight or number of repetitions of a recommendation seems too high, adjust the parameters downward according to your abilities. You should only go close to muscle failure under the supervision of a competent spotter / training partner who can come to your aid in case of doubt.
4.2. Scientific foundation of the training methods
We always try to align the content of the app with the latest sports science findings. However, since these findings are constantly evolving, we cannot guarantee that the contents of the app correspond to the latest sports science findings.
