I acknowledge I have been informed of the need for a physician’s approval for my participation in an exercise/fitness activity or in the use of Equipment. I recognize it is my sole responsibility to obtain an examination by a physician prior to involvement in any exercise program. I acknowledge I have either had a physical examination and been given my physician’s permission to participate, or if I have chosen not to obtain a physician’s permission prior to beginning this exercise program with Trainer, I acknowledge I am doing so at my own risk.

I represent and warrant any and all Equipment I provide for training sessions (“My Equipment”) is for personal use only. Trainer has not inspected my Equipment and has no knowledge of its condition. I understand I take sole responsibility for My Equipment. I acknowledge that although Trainer takes precautions to maintain the Equipment provided by Trainer (“His Equipment”), His Equipment and/or My Equipment (“His or My Equipment”) may malfunction and/or cause Injuries and Changes (as defined below) and that I take sole responsibility to inspect any and all of His or My Equipment. Furthermore, I take sole responsibility for any Injuries or Changes Trainer sustains while using My Equipment to demonstrate an Activity, or otherwise, and agree to indemnify him for any and all medical expenses and lost wages related to his use of My Equipment.
Assumption of Risk

I acknowledge the possibility that injuries and physical and mental changes (“Injuries and Changes”) arising during and/or resulting from engaging in Activities does exist. Injuries and Changes include, but are not limited to, abnormal blood pressure, fainting, disorders in heartbeat, heart attack, and, in some instances, death. I understand Injuries and Changes could result in my becoming partially or totally disabled and incapable of performing any gainful employment or having a normal sociallife.
I am voluntarily participating in Activities and using Equipment with knowledge of the dangers involved. I understand and take sole responsibility for any and all Injuries and Changes that may occur to myself and/or others, including but not limited to Trainer, related to any and all Activities associated with Trainer’s instruction, even if not specifically set forth in this document, whether or not they fall within the scope of reasonably foreseeable injuries related to such Activities, and whether or not undertaken in Trainer’s presence. Although Trainer will take precautions to ensure my safety, I expressly assume and accept sole responsibility for my safety and for any and all Injuries and Changes that may occur.
