Step 1 of 3
Because physical exercise can be strenuous and subject to the risk of serious injury, we urge you to obtain a physical examination from a doctor before using any exercise equipment or participating in any exercise activity. You (each member, guest, and all participating family members) agree that if you engage in any physical exercise or activity, or use any box amenity on the premises or off-premises including any sponsored box event, you do so entirely at your own risk. Any recommendation for changes in diet including the use of food supplements, weight reduction, and/or bodybuilding enhancement products is entirely your responsibility and you should consult a physician prior to undergoing any dietary or food supplement changes. You agree that you are voluntarily participating in these activities and use of these facilities and premises and assume all risks of injury, illness, or death. We are also not responsible for any loss of your personal property.
This waiver and release of liability includes, without limitation, all injuries which may occur as a result of:
(a) your use of all amenities and equipment in the facility and your participation in any activity, class, program, personal training or instruction,
(b) the sudden and unforeseen malfunctioning of any equipment,
(c) our instruction, training, supervision, or dietary recommendations, and
(d) your slipping and/or falling while in the box, or on the box premises, including adjacent sidewalks and parking areas.
You acknowledge that you have carefully read this “waiver and release” and fully understand that it is a release of liability. You expressly agree to release and discharge the health box, and all affiliates, employees, agents, representatives, successors or assigns, from any and all claims or causes of action and you, agree to voluntarily give up or waive any right that you may otherwise have to bring legal action against the trainer or instructor for personal injury or property damage.
To the extent that statute or case law does not prohibit releases for negligence, this release is also for negligence on the part of the club, its agents, and employees.
If any portion of this release from liability shall be deemed by the court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, then the remainder of this release from liability shall remain in full force and effect and the offending provision or provisions severed here from.
By signing this release, I acknowledge that I understand its content and that this release cannot be modified orally.
Regular physical activity is fun and healthy, and increasingly more people are starting to become more active every day. Being more active is very safe for most people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming much more physically active.
If you are planning to become much more physically active than you are now, start by answering the seven questions below. If you are between the ages of 15 and 69, the PAR-Q will tell you if you should check with your doctor before you start participating in vigorous physical activity. If you are OVER 69 years of age, and you are not used to being very physically active, check with your doctor regardless of the questions below.
Common sense and a standard of reasonableness is your best guide when you answer these questions. Please read the questions carefully and answer each one honestly in a YES or NO fashion.
You may be able to do any physical activity that you want -- as long as you start slowly and build up gradually. Or, you may need to restrict your activities to those which are safe for you. Talk with your doctor about the kinds of activities you wish to participate in and follow his/her advice.
Find out which community programs are safe and helpful for you.
Start becoming much more physically active -- begin slowly and build up gradually. This is the safest, easiest, and most reasonable method of becoming more physically active.
Take part in a fitness appraisal -- this is an excellent way to determine your basic fitness so that you can plan the best way for you to live actively. It is also highly recommended that you have your blood pressure evaluated by a registered professional (i.e. a doctor or a nurse). If your reading is over 144/94, talk with your doctor before you start becoming much more physically active.
Note: This physical activity clearance is valid for a maximum of 12 months from the date it is completed and becomes invalid if your condition changes so that you would answer YES to any of the seven questions.
