FITNESS PROGRAM INFORMED CONSENT
GENERAL STATEMENT OF PROGRAM OBJECTIVES AND PROCEDURES:
I understand that this physical fitness program includes exercises to build the cardiorespiratory system (heart and lungs), the musculoskeletal system (muscle endurance, strength, and flexibility), and to improve body composition (decrease body fat in individuals needing to lose fat, and increase in weight of muscle and bone). It may also include training specifically for recreation and sports performance goals.
DESCRIPTION OF POTENTIAL RISKS/RELEASE:
I understand that the reaction of the heart, lung, and blood vessel system to exercise cannot always be predicted with accuracy. I know there is a risk of certain abnormal changes occurring during or following exercise, which may include abnormalities of blood pressure or heart attacks. Use of the weight lifting equipment, and engaging in body calisthenics may lead to musculoskeletal strains, pain, and injury. I understand that the seller/trainer shall not be liable for any damages arising from personal injuries sustained by buyer while and during the training program. Buyer/client performing exercises does so at his/her own risk and assumes full responsibility for any injuries or damages which may occur during the training.
I hereby fully and forever release and discharge seller/trainer from all claims, demands, damages, and rights of action.
I understand and warrant, release and agree, that I have no disability, impairment, or ailment preventing me from engaging in active or passive exercise that will be detrimental to safety, comfort, or physical condition if I engage or participate(other than those items fully discussed in the health history review).
I state that I have had a recent physical checkup and have my personal physician’s permission to engage in aerobic and/or anaerobic conditioning.
I have read the foregoing information and understand it. Any questions that may have occurred to me have been answered to my satisfaction.
