CROSSFIT ZANSHIN DBA ZANSHIN FITNESS, NCFIT PARTNER: will be referred to as ZANSHIN FITNESS throughout this waiver.
Express assumption of risk: I, the undersigned, am aware that there are significant risks involved in any physical training regimen. These risks include, but are not limited to: falls which can result in serious injury or death, injury or death due to negligence on the part of myself, my training partner, or other people around me, injury or death due to improper use or failure of equipment. Injury may also result simply from the fact of physical training itself. By its very nature, physical training seeks to have me push beyond my physical and mental limits in order to produce a physical adaptation by my body. This requires feedback from me to my trainer regarding what is happening with my body. Excessive work can result (in rare cases) in exertional rhabdomyolosis. I should look for signs of excessive soreness, darkened urine, and pain in the kidney areas in the days following a particularly intense workout. While this type of injury is rare, it can occur due to a number of factors, including (but not limited to) genetic predisposition, medication, or other factors that are beyond the control of my trainer. I am aware that any of these above mentioned risks may result in serious injury or death to myself and or my partner(s). I willingly assume full responsibility for the risks that I am exposing myself to and accept full responsibility for any injury or death that may result from participation in any activity or class while training with ZANSHIN FITNESS.
I, the undersigned acknowledge that I have no physical condition, illness, or impairment that I know of that will endanger myself or others.
24/7 Program Access Assumption of Risk: ZANSHIN FITNESS STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT YOU CLEAR YOUR PARTICIPATION IN ANY EXERCISE PROGRAM WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN.
