Personal Training Agreement
In consideration of my being able to participate in the personal training plan, I understand that I must purchase a package of 10 or 20 training session(s) and must read and agree to this agreement where I assume risks for participation, waive of liability, and personal training policies and procedures.
I understand that the programme is voluntary and that the personal trainer will develop and guide me through my exercise programme. I will be required to undergo a fitness evaluation to assess my present level of fitness. I represent that I will complete the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire accurately and completely, including disclosure of any prescribed medications I am taking and any exercise or diet limitations that I am aware of or have been informed of by my doctor.
During the programme, if my medications, condition, or medical limitations should change, I will notify the trainer immediately. I understand that it is recommended that I have a yearly physical or more frequent physical examination and consultation with my physician as to physical activity and diet so I am aware of what is appropriate for me.
I acknowledge that I have either had a physical exam and have been given my GP's permission to participate, or I have decided to participate without approval of my physician.
I understand that a trainer will review my PAR Questionnaire and any other health history form, but that a trainer is not a physician and cannot replace the advice and expertise of a physician.
I understand that I have the complete right to stop or decrease exercise at any time during a session and that it is my obligation to inform the trainer of any symptoms, such as fatigue, shortness of breath or chest discomfort.
I realise that participation in the programme including but not limited to exercising, use of exercise equipment and strenuous exertion (strength training) all of which increase heart rate and body temperature.
I understand that exercise involves certain risks and that injuries may occur (including slips, falls and unintended loss of balance). I understand that part of the risk involved in undertaking any activity or programme is relative to my own state of fitness or health (physical, mental or emotional) and to the awareness, care and skill which I conduct myself in that activity or programme.
Knowing the material risks and appreciating, knowing and reasonably anticipating that other injuries are a possibility, I hereby expressly assume all of the delineated risks of injury, all other possible risks of injury, and even risk of possible death, which could occur by reason of my participation.
