I hereby expressly consent to my use of Studio South Fitness and/or participate in a fitness class, personal training, or fitness program. I acknowledge that such participation will necessarily involve participation in exercises that may be physically demanding and will subject the participant to stress, anxiety, physical injury and other possible hazards.

I, for myself and any minors on behalf I am executing this Agreement, release STUDIO SOUTH FITNESS, LLC, its agents, employees, and instructions from any and all liability or damage associated with my receipt of instruction from STUDIO SOUTH FITNESS, LLC, its agents, employees or instructors or my practice at STUDIO SOUTH FITNESS, LLC. I, for myself and any minors on whose behalf I am executing this Agreement, our representatives, agree to hold harmless and indemnify STUDIO SOUTH FITNESS, LLC, its agents, employees or instructors for any and all loss or damage, claims or demands related to injuries or property damage arising from my receipt of instruction from STUDIO SOUTH FITNESS, LLC, its agents, employees or instructors or my practice at STUDIO SOUTH FITNESS, LLC. I additionally agrees to indemnity and hold harmless STUDIO SOUTH FITNESS, LLC, its agents, employees and instructors for any attorney’s fees, defense costs or expenses arising out of the defense of any claim, injury, liability or damage arising from my instruction in the studio or practice in the studio.
General Statement of Program Objectives and Procedures: I understand that this physical fitness program may include exercises to build the cardio respiratory system (heart and lungs), the musculoskeletal system (muscle endurance and strength, and flexibility), and to improve body composition (lean/fat ratio). Exercises may include aerobic activities, calisthenics, and high intensity conditioning drills and resistance training to improve muscular strength and endurance, speed and agility drills as well as flexibility exercises to improve range of motion and reduce risk of injury to muscle. It is recommended that all participants obtain medical clearance from their physician before engaging in any fitness program.
Description of Potential Risks: I understand that the reaction of the heart, lung, and blood vessel system to such exercise cannot be predicted with accuracy. I know there is a risk of certain abnormal changes occurring during or following exercise, which may include abnormalities of blood pressure or heart rate, ineffective, functioning of the heart, and in rare instances, heart attacks. Use of the weightlifting equipment, performing agility drills and engaging in body calisthenics, although very rare, can lead to muscle strains, pain, and injury.
