(i) An amount equal to the sum of (i) Executives Base Salary at the rate in effect (or required to be in effect before any diminution that is the basis of Executives termination
for Good Reason) at the time of Executives termination of employment and (ii) Executives Target Bonus in effect (or required to be in effect before any diminution that is the basis of Executives termination for Good Reason) for the year in which Executives termination of employment occurs, payable in a lump sum payment, less applicable withholdings, as soon as administratively practicable following the date on which the Release of Claims becomes effective and, in any event, no later than the sixtieth (60th) day following the date of the Covered Termination; provided, however, if such sixty (60) day period falls in two different calendar years, payment will be made in the later calendar year.
(ii) Notwithstanding anything set forth in an award agreement or incentive plan to the contrary, an amount equal to Executives Annual Bonus for the fiscal year in which Executives termination occurs based on target achievement of the applicable bonus objectives and/or conditions determined by the Board or a committee of the Board for such year payable, less applicable withholdings, at the same time bonuses for such year are paid to other senior executives of the Company, but in no event later than March 15 of the year following the year of Executives termination of employment.
(iii) The Company shall directly pay, or reimburse Executive for the premium for Executive and Executives covered dependents to maintain continued health coverage pursuant to the provisions of COBRA through the earlier of (A) the eighteen (18) month anniversary of the date of Executives termination of employment and (B) the date Executive and Executives covered dependents, if any, become eligible for healthcare coverage under another employers plan(s). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company is otherwise unable to continue to cover Executive under its group health plans without penalty under applicable law (including without limitation, Section 2716 of the Public Health Service Act), then, in either case, an amount equal to each remaining Company subsidy shall thereafter be paid to Executive in substantially equal monthly installments.
(iv) Other than in the event of a Covered Termination that is due to death or Disability, all of Executives unvested stock option, restricted stock, restricted stock units, performance stock units and other equity-based awards, shall become immediately vested on the date of Executives termination of employment, provided that: (x) each such award shall be exercisable, to the extent applicable, in accordance with the provisions of the award agreement and plan pursuant to which such equity award was granted and (y) for performance-based awards, any such vesting in respect of open periods of performance-based awards shall be calculated as set forth in the applicable award agreement, or, if not specified in the award agreement, based on the target level of performance.
(v) The Company shall directly pay, or reimburse, Executive for an amount equal to the Executives reasonable relocation expenses incurred by Executive in connection with his and his familys relocation from United States to Australia. The total of all such amounts will not exceed $20,000.
(b) Covered Termination Related to a Change in Control. If Executives employment terminates due to a Covered Termination that occurs during the Change in Control Protection Period, Executive shall receive the severance compensation and benefits provided for in Section 4.1(a), except that (x) the payment described in Section 4.1(a)(ii) shall be payable in a
lump sum payment, less applicable withholdings, as soon as administratively practicable following the date on which the Release of Claims becomes effective and, in any event, no later than the sixtieth (60th) day following the date of the Covered Termination; provided, however, if such sixty (60) day period falls in two different calendar years, payment will be made in the later calendar year and (y) the treatment of equity awards described in Section 4.1(a)(iv) shall apply on any Covered Termination that occurs during the Change in Control Protection Period, including, for avoidance of doubt, a Covered Termination due to death or Disability. In addition, if there is a dispute as to whether grounds triggering termination with or without Cause or resignation with or without Good Reason have occurred, in each case in connection with a Change in Control, then any fees and expenses arising from the resolution of such dispute (including any reasonably incurred attorneys fees and expenses of Executive) shall be paid by the Company or its successor, as the case may be; provided, that Executive shall reimburse the Company on a net after-tax basis to cover expenses incurred by Executive for claims brought by Executive that are judicially determined to be frivolous or advanced in bad faith.
4.2. 280G Provisions. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, if any payment or distribution Executive would receive pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise (Payment) would (a) constitute a parachute payment within the meaning of Section 280G of the Code, and (b) but for this sentence, be subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code (the Excise Tax), then such Payment shall either be (i) delivered in full, or (ii) delivered as to such lesser extent which would result in no portion of such Payment being subject to the Excise Tax, whichever of the foregoing amounts, taking into account the applicable federal, state and local income taxes and the Excise Tax, results in the receipt by Executive on an after-tax basis, of the largest payment, notwithstanding that all or some portion the Payment may be taxable under Section 4999 of the Code. The accounting firm engaged by the Company for general audit purposes as of the day prior to the effective date of the Change in Control shall perform the foregoing calculations. The Company shall bear all expenses with respect to the determinations by such accounting firm required to be made hereunder. The accounting firm shall provide its calculations to the Company and Executive within fifteen (15) calendar days after the date on which Executives right to a Payment is triggered (if requested at that time by the Company or Executive) or such other time as requested by the Company or Executive. Any good faith determinations of the accounting firm made hereunder shall be final, binding and conclusive upon the Company and Executive. Any reduction in payments and/or benefits pursuant to this Section 4.2 will occur in the following order: (1) reduction of cash payments; (2) cancellation of accelerated vesting of equity awards other than stock options; (3) cancellation of accelerated vesting of stock options; and (4) reduction of other benefits payable to Executive.
4.3. Section 409A.
(a) Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in this Agreement, if Executive is deemed at the time of his Separation from Service to be a specified employee for purposes of Section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Code, to the extent delayed commencement of any portion of the benefits to which Executive is entitled under this Agreement is required in order to avoid a prohibited distribution under Section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Code which would subject Executive to a tax obligation under Section 409A of the Code, such portion of Executives benefits shall not
be provided to Executive prior to the earlier of (i) the expiration of the six- month period measured from the date of Executives Separation from Service or (ii) the date of Executives death. Upon the expiration of the applicable Code Section 409A(a)(2)(B)(i) period, all payments deferred pursuant to this Section 4.3(a) shall be paid in a lump sum to Executive, and any remaining payments due under the Agreement shall be paid as otherwise provided herein.
(b) Any reimbursements payable to Executive pursuant to the Agreement shall be paid to Executive no later than 30 days after Executive provides the Company with a written request for reimbursement, and to the extent that any such reimbursements are deemed to constitute nonqualified deferred compensation within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code (i) such amounts shall be paid or reimbursed to Executive promptly, but in no event later than December 31 of the year following the year in which the expense is incurred, (ii) the amount of any such payments eligible for reimbursement in one year shall not affect the payments or expenses that are eligible for payment or reimbursement in any other taxable year, and (iii) Executives right to such payments or reimbursement shall not be subject to liquidation or exchange for any other benefit.
(c) For purposes of Section 409A of the Code (including, without limitation, for purposes of Treasury Regulation Section 1.409A-2(b)(2)(iii)), Executives right to receive installment payments under the Agreement shall be treated as a right to receive a series of separate payments and, accordingly, each installment payment hereunder shall at all times be considered a separate and distinct payment.
4.4. Mitigation. Executive shall not be required to mitigate damages or the amount of any payment provided under this Agreement by seeking other employment or otherwise, nor shall the amount of any payment provided for under this Agreement be reduced by any compensation earned by Executive as a result of employment by another employer or by any retirement benefits received by Executive after the date of the Covered Termination, or otherwise.
4.5. Equity Coordination. For the avoidance of doubt, except as provided for in Section 4.1(a)(iv) above, all equity awards, including stock options, restricted stock units and other equity-based compensation granted by the Company to Executive under the Companys equity-based compensation plans shall be subject to the terms of such plans and Executives equity award agreements with respect thereto.
PROPRIETARY INFORMATION OBLIGATIONS
5.1. Agreement. All Company Innovations shall be the sole and exclusive property of the Company without further compensation and are works made for hire as that term is defined under the United States copyright laws. Executive shall promptly notify the Company of any Company Innovations that Executive solely or jointly Creates. Company Innovations means all Innovations, and any associated intellectual property rights, which Executive may solely or jointly Create, during Executives employment with the Company, which (i) relate, at the time Created, to the Companys business or actual or demonstrably anticipated research or development, or (ii) were developed on any amount of the Companys time or with the use of any of the Companys equipment, supplies, facilities or trade secret information, or (iii) resulted from any work Executive performed for the Company. Executive is notified that Company Innovations

Such acts may include execution of documents and assistance or cooperation (i) in the filing, prosecution, registration, and memorialization of assignment of patent, copyright, mask work or other applications, (ii) in the enforcement of any applicable Proprietary Rights, and (iii) in other legal proceedings related to the Companys Innovations. Proprietary Rights means patents, copyrights, mask work, moral rights, trade secrets and other proprietary rights. No provision in this Agreement is intended to require Executive to assign or offer to assign any of Executives rights in any invention for which Executive can establish that no trade secret information of the Company were used, and which was developed on Executives own time, unless the invention relates to the Companys actual or demonstrably anticipated research or development, or the invention results from any work performed by Executive for the Company.
5.2. Remedies. Executives duties under this Article V shall survive termination of Executives employment with the Company and the termination of this Agreement. Executive acknowledges that a remedy at law for any breach or threatened breach by Executive of Article V, as well as Executives obligations pursuant to Section 6.2 and Article VII below, would be inadequate, and Executive therefore agrees that the Company shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief in case of any such breach or threatened breach.
6.1. Other Activities.
(a) Except as otherwise provided in Section 6.1(b), Executive shall not, during the term of this Agreement undertake or engage in any other employment, occupation or business enterprise, other than ones in which Executive is a passive investor, unless he obtains the prior written consent of the Board.

In addition, subject to advance approval by the Board (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld), Executive shall be allowed to serve as a member of the board of directors of one (1) for-profit entity at any time during the term of this Agreement, so long as such service does not materially interfere with the performance of Executives duties hereunder; provided, however, that the Board, in its discretion, may require that Executive resign from such director position if it determines that such resignation would be in the best interests of the Company.
6.2. Competition/Investments. During the term of Executives employment by the Company and for the two (2) year period thereafter, in order to protect the Companys legitimate business interests, including the value of the Companys confidential information, trade secrets, goodwill and training, which Executive acknowledges and agrees Executive has received and will continue to receive, Executive shall not (except on behalf of the Company) directly or indirectly, whether as an officer, director, stockholder, partner, proprietor, associate, representative, consultant, or in any capacity whatsoever engage in, become financially interested in, be employed by or have any business connection with any other person, corporation, firm, partnership or other entity whatsoever which is known by Executive to compete directly with the Company, throughout the world, in any line of business engaged in (or planned to be engaged in) by the Company, including, without limitation, the business of owning, operating or maintaining fitness facilities, providing fitness instruction or any related services as currently engaged in by the Company; provided, however, that anything above to the contrary notwithstanding, Executive may own, as a passive investor, securities of any competitor corporation, so long as Executives direct holdings in any one such corporation do not, in the aggregate, constitute more than 1% of the voting stock of such corporation. If it is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in any state that any restriction in this Section 6.2 is excessive in duration or scope or is unreasonable or unenforceable under the laws of that state, it is the intention of the parties that such restriction may be modified or amended by the court to render it enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by the law of that state.
Executive shall not during the term of Executives employment by the Company and for the one (1) year period thereafter, in order to protect the Companys legitimate business interests, including the value of the Companys confidential information, trade secrets, goodwill and training, which Executive acknowledges and agrees Executive has received and will continue to receive, either on Executives own account or jointly with or as a manager, agent, officer, employee, consultant, partner, joint venturer, owner or stockholder or otherwise on behalf of any other person, firm or corporation, directly or indirectly solicit, induce attempt to solicit any of (i) its customers or clients to terminate their relationship with the Company or to cease purchasing services or products from the Company or (ii) its officers or employees or offer employment to any person who is an officer or employee of the Company; provided, however, that a general advertisement to which an employee of the Company responds shall in no event be deemed to result in a breach of this Article VII. If it is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in any state that any restriction in this Article VII is excessive in duration or scope or is unreasonable or unenforceable under the laws of that state, it is the intention of the parties that such restriction may be modified or amended by the court to render it enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by the law of that state.
8.1. Notices. Any notices provided hereunder must be in writing and shall be deemed effective upon the earlier of personal delivery (including personal delivery by facsimile) or the third day after mailing by first class mail, to the Company at its primary office location and to Executive at Executives address as listed on the Companys books and records.
8.2. Tax Withholding. Executive acknowledges that all amounts and benefits payable under this Agreement are subject to deduction and withholding to the extent required by applicable law.
8.3. Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement will be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law or rule in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect any other provision or any other jurisdiction, but this Agreement will be reformed, construed and enforced in such jurisdiction as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions had never been contained herein.
8.4. Waiver. If either party should waive any breach of any provisions of this Agreement, they shall not thereby be deemed to have waived any preceding or succeeding breach of the same or any other provision of this Agreement.
