I, through the purchase of class packages, training sessions and merchandise, have agreed to voluntarily participate in an exercise program, including, but not limited to, high-intensity interval training, strength training, flexibility development, and aerobic exercise, under the guidance of Embrace Fitness. I hereby stipulate and agree that I am physically and mentally sound and currently have no physical conditions that would be aggravated by my involvement in an exercise program. I have provided verification from a licensed physician that I am able to undertake a general fitness-training program.
I understand that physical-fitness activities, including the use of equipment, are potentially hazardous activities. I am aware that participating in these types of activities, even when completed properly, can be dangerous. I agree to follow the verbal instructions issued by the trainer/instructor. I am aware that potential risks associated with these types of activities include, but are not limited to: death, fainting, disorders in heartbeat, serious neck and spinal injuries that may result in complete or partial paralysis or brain damage, serious injury to virtually all bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons and other aspects of musculoskeletal system, and serious injury or impairment to other aspects of my body, general health, and well-being.
Because of the dangers of participation, I recognise the importance of following the personal trainer’s/instructor’s instructions regarding proper techniques and training, as well as organization rules.
I understand that I am responsible for my own medical insurance and will maintain that insurance throughout my entire period of participation with Embrace Fitness. I will assume any additional expenses incurred that go beyond my health coverage. I will notify the Embrace Fitness of any significant injury that requires medical attention (such as emergency care, hospitalization, etc.).
Embrace Fitness or I will provide the equipment to be used in connection with workouts, including, but not limited to, benches, dumbbells, barbells, resistance bands, myofascial rollers and balls and similar items. I represent and warrant any and all equipment I provide for training sessions is for personal use only. Embrace Fitness has not inspected my equipment and has no knowledge of its condition. I understand that I take sole responsibility for my equipment. I acknowledge that although Embrace Fitness takes precautions to maintain the equipment, any equipment may malfunction and/or cause potential injuries. I take sole responsibility to inspect any and all of my or Embrace Fitness' equipment prior to use.
Although Embrace Fitness will take precautions to ensure my safety, I expressly assume and accept sole responsibility for my safety and for any and all injuries that may occur. In consideration of the acceptance of this entry, I, for myself and for my executors, administrators, and assigns, waive and release any and all claims against Embrace Fitness and any of their staffs, officers, officials, volunteers, sponsors, agents, representatives, successors, or assigns and agree to hold them harmless from any claims or losses, including but not limited to claims for negligence for any injuries or expenses that I may incur while exercising or while traveling to and from training sessions. These exculpatory clauses are intended to apply to any and all activities occurring during the time for which I have contracted with Embrace Fitness.
I hereby grant permission to Embrace Fitness and its representatives to take photographs or videos of me and to make recordings of my voice at any classes conducted by Embrace Fitness. I further grant to the Embrace Fitness and their representatives the right to reproduce, use, exhibit, display, broadcast and distribute and create derivative works of these images and recordings in any media now known or later developed. I acknowledge that Embrace Fitness owns all rights to the images and recordings.
