We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Ace Sports Clinic.
I acknowledge my consent to undergo an assessment of my physical activity, sedentary behaviour, lifestyle and fitness.
The Personal Training, Exercise Physiology or Registered Kinesiology Assessment may include:
• Answering questions concerning my physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and other lifestyle factors such as smoking and nutrition
• Measures of my heart rate, blood pressure, height, weight and waist circumference
• A sub-maximal aerobic fitness test that involves either stepping, walking or cycling for a defined period of time to measure your heart rate response
• A series of musculoskeletal fitness tests that may include Grip strength, Push-ups, Sit and Reach, Vertical Jump, Back Extension, One Leg Stance
I understand that the assessment results will be used to determine the type and amount of physical activity most appropriate for my interests, goals, current physical activity and sedentary behaviour, and fitness level.
I understand that I will be provided with advice about physical activity, sedentary behaviour and other healthy lifestyle topics.
I understand that I may participate, if desired, in a follow-up supervised training session based on the findings of the assessment, consisting of a warm-up, aerobic and musculoskeletal training (including a sub-maximal resistance training load determination), and a cool-down.
I understand that there are small but potential risks during physical activity (e.g. episodes of transient light-headedness, loss of consciousness, abnormal blood pressure, chest discomfort, leg cramps, nausea), and that I willfully assume those risks.
I understand my obligation to immediately inform my Personal Trainer/Exercise Physiologist/Registered Kinesiologist of any pain, discomfort, fatigue, or any other symptoms that I may suffer during and immediately after the assessment.
I understand that I may stop or delay any further testing at any time if I so desire, and that the assessment may be terminated by my Personal Trainer/Exercise Physiologist/Registered Kinesiologist upon observation of any symptoms of undue distress or abnormal response.
