I have answered the GroupFit PAR Questionaire accurately and completely. I understand that my medical history is a very important factor in the development of my fitness/wellness program. I understand that certain medical or physical conditions which are known to me, but which I do not disclose to Beach Fitness, Inc. may result in serious injury to me. If any of the above conditions change, I will immediately inform Beach Fitness, Inc. of those changes. I, knowingly and willingly, assume all risks of injury resulting from my failure to disclose accurate, complete, and updated information in accordance with the attached questionnaire.
I have read and received a copy of the Beach Fitness GroupFit Studio Rules and procedures.
INFORMED CONSENT OF GROUPFIT™ TRAINING PROGRAM
Description of Potential Risks
- I understand that no exercise program is without inherent risks regardless of the care taken by a group fitness instructor, and that my personal safety cannot by guaranteed by my group fitness instructor. I realize that when participating in any exercises, particularly those that induce cardiovascular stress, there is a slight chance of serious injury (e.g., heart attack, stroke, or other cardiovascular events) or catastrophic incident (e.g., death, paralysis). Likewise, I know that engaging in muscular endurance, strength building, and other fitness activities sometimes results in minor injuries (e.g.; bruises, musculoskeletal strains and sprains), less frequently, more serious injuries (e.g., muscle tears, herniated disks, torn rotator cuffs) and rarely, catastrophic injury (e.g., death, paralysis).
- 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 my health and 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 a physician prior to beginning this program. I have been advised to cease exercise immediately if I experience unusual discomfort and feel the need to stop.
