Physical exercise can be strenuous and subject you to serious injury.  A physical examination from your physician is highly recommended before participating in any strenuous activity or change of diet.  Any use of vitamins, supplements, weight loss or weight gain products is entirely voluntary and should be approved in advance by your physician.  Participating in any training program is done entirely at your own risk, and you assume all responsibility and liability for the risk of injury, illness or death.  You are responsible for any loss of or damage to your personal property.  You are also responsible for informing your trainer of any illness or injury prior to starting any training session.

By agreeing, I acknowledge that I will be engaging in strenuous activities that involve weight and cardiovascular training as well as a change in my diet.  I understand that any nutritional recommendations provided by my trainer are based purely on the trainer’s experience and that my personal trainer is not a registered dietitian.  I have carefully read this release form and understand that this is a release of liability.  I and anyone claiming to be acting on my behalf or in my interest agree to waive and irrevocably and unconditionally fully release, aquit and forever discharge from liability Philadelphia Fitness Authority, and its directors, officers, agents, employees, contractors, representatives, successors and assignees, and my Personal Trainers from any and all claims, demands, losses, liabilities, promises or causes of action or similar rights of any nature or type whatsoever and agree to waive all rights that I may otherwise have to bring forth any legal action for personal injury or property loss/damage or as a result of or because of any act, omission, or failure to act by Philadelphia Fitness Authority and/or my Personal Trainer.

To the extent that statute or case law does not prohibit releases for negligence, this waiver and release is also for any negligence on the part of my Personal Trainer and Philadelphia Fitness Authority.

For the avoidance of doubt, this Waiver and Release of liability includes, without limitation, all injuries which may occur as a result of or in connection with: (a) your participation in any activity or personal training session and (b) instruction, training, supervision, or dietary recommendations by my Personal Trainer and/or Philadelphia Fitness Authority.

If any portion of this waiver and release from liability shall be deemed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, then the remainder of this waiver and release from liability shall remain in full force and effect, and the offending provision or provisions severed herefrom.

By signing this waiver and release, I acknowledge and understand its content and that this waiver and release cannot be modified orally
