WAIVER

The HOUSE OF FITNESS MISSION is to IMPROVE PERFORMANCE through scientific programming and help individuals reach their specific Health and Fitness goals. I understand that the purpose of this exercise program is to improve and maintain cardiorespiratory fitness, body composition, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance. All exercise prescription components will comply with proper exercise program protocols and focus on minimizing the risk of injury. -Risks- I understand, and have been informed, that exercise can be strenuous and there is always risk of injury if I do not follow the recommendations of the Coaches. I have been informed that during my participation in the exercise program I will be asked to complete exercises that may elicit physiological responses/symptoms that include but not limited to the following: elevated heart rate, elevated blood pressure, sweating, fatigue, increased respiration, muscle soreness, cramping, and nausea. I am aware that there is the possibility of adverse changes when engaging in this program and I have been informed that these changes could include muscle strains, joint sprains, bone fractures, fainting, rapid heart rates and arrhythmias, stroke and in very rare instances, heart attack or even death. I have been told and understand that every effort will be made to minimize these occurrences by proper screening and by precautions and observations taken during our Classes. I understand the risks and it is my desire to partake in the recommended activities. -Rewards- I understand that participation in an exercise program has many rewards and health related benefits. These may include improvements in body composition, flexibility and range of motion, musculoskeletal strength & endurance, and cardiorespiratory efficiency. Furthermore regular exercise can improve blood pressure and lipid profile, metabolic function, and decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and other chronic diseases. However, I understand that these rewards will not be achieved without the effort and dedication to follow the advice of our Coaches on my own time. I understand that MY effort is just as important as MY COACHES effort to reach my goals and that there is no magic formula to rapid weight-loss goals. -Confidentiality & Use of Information- I have been informed that the information obtained in this program will be treated as privileged and follow HIPAA and will consequently not be released or revealed to any person without my express written consent. Any information obtained will be used only by my Coaches to evaluate my exercise status as needed. -Inquiries & Freedom of Consent- I understand I always have the opportunity to ask questions about the exercise program and exercise in general. I further understand that there are other remote health risks and despite the fact that a complete accounting of all these remote risks has not been provided to me, I still desire to proceed with the exercise program. We urge you to obtain a physical examination and clearance from your doctor before performing any exercise. We require you to email our Director of Performance at CoachCorn@HouseofFitness.org prior to attending your first class for a Free Consultation & Assessment.
