Body Tempering® Trademark Use
As you may already know, Body Tempering, LLC is the rightful owner of the trademark "Body Tempering." The Body Tempering Certification allows you to use the "Body Tempering" mark in limited uses. Specifically, you may mention the "BT-C1" or "Body Tempering® Level 1 Certified" certification in your biography, resume, curriculum vitae, or professional biography. You may also list this qualification on your business card.
Please be advised that this is your official notice. Without explicit permission from Body Tempering, LLC, you are not permitted to use the Body Tempering® trademark in any business name or in any manner that could lead someone to assume you are an officially linked business organization. This includes—but is not restricted to—using the Body Tempering® brand as part of the name of a fitness center, studio, or other connected enterprise.
Additionally, without specific permission from Body Tempering, LLC, you are not permitted to use the Body Tempering® brand in any social media handles or usernames that might lead a viewer to believe you are an officially linked company.
If you are already using "Body Tempering" in your business name or social media, please read below on how to continue its use.
Body Tempering is quickly expanding! In order to ensure quality and compliance, and protection of the brand, we will be requiring affiliation to use the "Body Tempering" Trademark in a business name or social media handle starting in 2024. Before the Affiliation Roll out, we are creating a grandfathering program for those using the trademark in their business name or social media handle prior to 2023.
All BT-C's currently using "Body Tempering" in their business name or social media handle and wish to continue using the Body Tempering Trademark must apply for the Grandfathering Program and meet all Grandfathering requirements.
Who is eligible for Grandfathering:
Any BT-C using "Body Tempering" (or any variation) in their business name (LLC, LP, LLP, Corp., etc.) prior to 2023.
Any BT-C using "Body Tempering" (or any variation) in their social media handle prior to 2023.
Requirements for Grandfathering are as follows:
Complete and sign new BT-C Agreement
Proof of business registration and/or social media handle use prior to 2023.
For those who used "Body Tempering" in their social media handle prior to 2023, but have not registered their business with their state, must register their "Body Tempering" business before 2024.
Obtain valid Business Insurance. (No minimum requirement).
Apply for the Grandfathering program.

For those in Grandfathered in, we will NEVER require any additional courses (outside CEU requirements for BT-C1), and we will NEVER require any additional fees for the Trademark's use.
For more information please email us at email@example.com.
Please be advised that this is your official notice.
All persons using the Body Tempering Brand in their social media handles or business name in a way that is unauthorized, or leads a consumer to believe the person is officially affiliated with Body Tempering without express written consent form Body Tempering, LLC have until January 1, 2024 to apply.
