Before signing this Waiver and Release of Liability, the undersigned has been advised of, understands, and agrees to the following:
Participation in a program of progressive activity includes strenuous activity and the potential for physiological responses, including but not limited to increase or decrease in blood pressure, physical discomfort, strained muscles, sprains, joint discomfort, adverse reaction, falls, heart attack, and death. I understand there are inherent risks in physical training and activities as described above and also include but are not limited to equipment failure whether or not equipment is used properly, negligent conduct by myself or other persons in my vicinity, and other foreseeable and unforeseeable events or conditions. I have been informed and understand that these events and physiological responses or injury may occur during participation in a Challenge Center program or independent fitness activities.
In consideration of my use of Challenge Center and participation in any Challenge Center program, I understand and agree to assume the risks related to my health and well-being and take responsibility for any injury or adverse event that may occur, including known and unknown current and pre-existing conditions. I further assume sole responsibility for the conduct and activities of my attendant(s) or caregiver(s) while on the premises of Challenge Center, and the undersigned agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Challenge Center personnel for injury or damages incurred by or caused by the undersigned or the undersigned’s attendant(s) or caregiver(s).
The undersigned agrees that Challenge Center personnel shall not be held liable for damage to persons or property, and agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Challenge Center personnel for injury or damages caused by the undersigned or the undersigned’s attendant(s) or caregiver(s). The undersigned further agrees to waive all claims, presently and in the future, against Challenge Center personnel related to personal injuries and/or damage to property as a result of attendance at a Challenge Center program(s) whether arising prior to, during or after program attendance.
I further understand and agree to the following: Initial consultation and facility orientation, if done, may be performed by various Challenge Center employees, and that Challenge Center employees may observe my activities. I am aware that at times, Challenge Center staff may not be on the "exercise floor" while I perform my exercises. Challenge Center staff are prohibited, under any circumstances, from making specific exercise recommendations related or unrelated to a medical or non- medical condition without a Physical Therapy Evaluation or Personal Training Consultation occurring prior to making any recommendations. Challenge Center is a physical therapy, physical fitness and wellness related facility and reserves the right to require any participant in a Challenge Center program or a member to be screened or evaluated by a Challenge Center physical therapist before or after becoming a member. Any and all exercises the undersigned chooses to perform whether recommended or not by Challenge Center personnel are engaged in entirely at participant’s own risk. Some exercises, recommended or not by Challenge Center personnel, may require a spotter for safety purposes and Challenge Center personnel may not be available to act as a spotter for such activities. I understand and accept responsibility for requesting and engaging a spotter for such activities and to abstain from engaging in such activities unless I have a spotter present.
I, the undersigned, further understand and agree that I am solely responsible for bodily injury or property damage which my child or legal ward may sustain on Challenge Center's premises. I further understand and agree that Challenge Center personnel shall not be responsible for any time lost by me, my child or legal ward from employment or school or other activity, or for financial loss for medical or other expense incurred because of bodily injury or property damage; that I on behalf of myself, my heirs, and administrators, release and discharge the City of La Mesa, and Challenge Center personnel from any and all claims, demands, actions and causes of action arising from such injuries sustained to my person or that of my child or legal ward and/or property.
