Description of Potential Risks
It is my understanding and I have been informed that there exists the remote possibility during exercise of adverse changes including, but not limited to, abnormal blood pressure, fainting, dizziness, disorders of heart rhythm, and in very rare instances heart attack, stroke, or even death. I further understand and I have been informed that there exists the risk of bodily injury including, but not limited to, injuries to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints of the body. Every effort, I have been told, will be made to minimise these occurrences by PT supervision during exercise and by my own careful control of exercise efforts. I fully understand the risks associated with exercise, including the risk of bodily injury, heart attack, stroke or even death, but knowing these risks, it is my desire to participate as herein indicated.
Description of Potential Benefits
I understand that a regular exercise program has been shown to have definite benefits to general health and well-being. I know that some of the benefits can include loss of weight, reduction of body fat, improvement of blood lipids, lowering of blood pressure, improvement of cardiovascular function, reduction in the risk of heart disease, improved strength and muscular endurance, improved posture, and improved flexibility. We recommend clients continue weighing themselves up to 6-8 weeks after bootcamps/sessions have ended to fully realise the benefits they have reaped from the sessions.
I understand that it is my responsibility to:
Fully disclose any health issues or medications that are relevant to participation in a strenuous exercise program;
Cease exercise and report promptly any unusual feelings (e.g., chest discomfort, nausea, difficulty breathing, apparent injury) during the exercise program
Clear my participation with my doctor
Give at least 6 hours notice of any desired change in timing of personal training session and know that sessions can be delayed but are non-refundable. If GroupFIIT sessions are missed, they cannot be made up or be refunded.
In agreeing to this exercise program:
I acknowledge that my participation is completely voluntary
I understand the potential physical risks involved in the exercise program and believe that the potential benefits outweigh those risks.
I give consent to certain physical touching that may be necessary to ensure proper technique and body alignment.
I understand that the achievement of health or fitness goals cannot be guaranteed.
I have had a voice in planning and approving the activities selected for my exercise program.
I have been able to ask questions regarding any concerns I might have, and have had those questions answered to my satisfaction.
I am in good physical condition, have no impairment which might prevent my participation in such activities, and have been advised to consult with a physician prior to beginning this program.
I have been advised to cease activity immediately if I experience unusual discomfort and feel the need to stop.
I understand that results may vary between clients. This is due to many factors which include but are not limited to; my activity and eating outside of sessions, age, fitness levels, medical conditions, vitamin deficiencies and others.
