  • More than one year since I have engaged in regular physical activity

By signing this document, I expressly assume all risk for my health and well-being and expressly assume all other risks associated with participating in the Programs, including, but not limited to, the negligence of any organization or individual participating or involved in providing or promoting any of the Programs or any other classes, functions, testing, or other activities related to the Programs. I also hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue any provider, supplier or promoter of the Programs and any class instructor and any individual or entity providing, promoting or involved with the Programs or any other classes, functions, testing, or other activities related to the Programs in which I participate at any time, whether live or on-line, from any and all claims, lawsuits, demands, liabilities, losses, or damages (including death, bodily injury or damage to property) caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the negligence of any of the foregoing individuals or entities.
