Informed Consent and Acknowledgement
I voluntarily consent for my child to engage in a fitness assessment, exercise assessment, and/or fitness training. I understand that during some tests my child may be encouraged to work at maximum effort and that at any time, my child may terminate the assessment or activity for any reason.
The reaction of the cardiovascular system to aerobic or weight-lifting activities cannot always be predicted with complete accuracy. I understand certain physical changes may occur during the exercise assessment and subsequent exercise activities. Such changes include abnormal blood pressure, fainting, disorders of the heart rate, and very rare instances of heart attack, cardiac arrest, paralysis or death. I understand that every effort will be made to minimize problems by preliminary examination and observation during testing and exercising.
Even though my child will be observed during assessments and exercise activities, I understand that my child is responsible for monitoring his/her own condition throughout the procedures, and should any unusual symptoms occur, will cease participation and inform the instructor of the symptoms. Such symptoms could include but are not necessarily limited to: nausea, difficulty in breathing, chest discomfort, and joint or muscle injury.
I also understand that an emergency protocol has been planned. In the event an emergency situation occurs I am financially responsible for any emergency services that may be necessary.
I agree to assume all risks of the fitness testing and hereby release and hold harmless Body Project LLC and their agents and employees from any and all health claims, suits, losses, or causes of action for damages, injury or death, including claims for negligence, arising out of or related to my child’s participation in the fitness assessments and/or fitness program participation.
I have read the foregoing carefully, and I understand its content. Any questions that may have occurred to me concerning this informed consent have been answered to my satisfaction.
To my knowledge, my child has no physical or medical condition that either myself, my child, or his/her physician, is aware of that could be aggravated by participating in an exercise program. I agree to advise Body Project LLC in writing if this changes or if my child’s physician advises him/her to stop, reduce, or otherwise adjust an exercise routine. I will advise Body Project LLC if my child becomes injured in any way while participating in exercises under the supervision of one of their trainers or elsewhere.
