CrossFit 137 Liability Waiver (9813)
And now, the legal stuff. Please read this! It contains some important educational and legal information for you.
Waiver and Release of Liability Express assumption of risk:
I, the undersigned, am aware that there are significant inherent risks involved in any physical training regimen.
These inherent 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 CrossFit 137 trainer regarding what is happening with my body.
I understand that excessive work can result (in rare cases) in exertional rhabdomyolysis and that 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 understand that while CrossFit 137 has undertaken reasonable steps to lessen the risk of transmission of COVID-19, they are not responsible for any risks related to the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 is a highly contagious and dangerous disease, and contact with the virus may result in significant injury or death. I am fully aware that participation in activities at CrossFit 137 carry with them certain inherent risks related to COVID-19 transmission that cannot be entirely eliminated. Further, I understand that the risks of COVID-19 are not fully understood, and that contact with, or transmission of, COVID-19 may result in injury or harm, the exact nature of which are not currently ascertainable, and all of which are to be considered inherent risks.
I am aware that any of these above mentioned risks may result in serious injury or death to myself and/or my partner(s), and agree to accept and assume all risk of loss, personal injury, sickness, death, damage and expense arising from such inherent risks that may result from participation in any activity or class while training with CrossFit 137.
I, the undersigned acknowledge that I have no physical condition, illness, or impairment that I know of that will endanger myself or others. I represent and warrant that I do not suffer from any medical condition or disease, including, to my knowledge, COVID-19, that might in any way hinder or prevent me from receiving intense physical group training.
In consideration of the above mentioned risks and hazards and in consideration of the fact that I am willingly and voluntarily participating in the activities available at CrossFit 137 I, the undersigned hereby release CrossFit, Inc., its officers and directors, and CrossFit 137, their principals, agents, employees, and volunteers from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions or rights of action, which are related to, arise out of, or are in any way connected with my participation in this activity, including those allegedly attributed to the negligent acts or omissions of the above mentioned parties.
This agreement shall be binding upon me, my successors, representatives, heirs, executors, assigns, or transferees. If any portion of this agreement is held invalid, I agree that the remainder of the agreement shall remain in full legal force and effect.
If I am signing on behalf of a minor child, I also give full permission for any person connected with CrossFit 137 to administer first aid deemed necessary, and in case of serious illness or injury, I give permission to call for medical and or surgical care for the child and to transport the child to a medical facility deemed necessary for the well being of the child.
The participant recognizes that there is risk involved in the types of activities offered by CrossFit 137. Therefore the participant accepts financial responsibility for any injury that the participant may cause either to him/herself or to any other participant due to his/her negligence. Should the above-mentioned parties, or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorney’s fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to reimburse them for such fees and costs.
I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless CrossFit, Inc. and CrossFit 137, their principals, agents, employees, and volunteers from liability for the injury or death of any person(s) and damage to property that may result from my negligent or intentional act or omission while participating in activities offered by CrossFit 137.
I hereby grant CrossFit 137 permission to use my photograph/video image in any and all publications for CrossFit, Inc. or CrossFit 137, including on their websites or publications, without payment or any other consideration in perpetuity. I hereby authorize CrossFit 137 to edit, alter, copy, exhibit, publish or distribute all photos and images. I waive the right to inspect or approve the finished product, including written or electronic copy, wherein my photo appears. Additionally, I waive any right to royalties or other compensation arising or related to the use of the photograph or video images. I hereby hold harmless and release and forever discharge CrossFit 137 from all claims, demands, and causes of action which I, my heirs, representatives, executors, administrators, or any other persons acting on my behalf or on behalf of my estate which may have or may have by reason of this authorization.
I am competent to contract in my own name. I have read this release, and I fully understand the contents, meaning, and impact of this release. I have read and understood the foregoing assumption of risk, and release of liability and I understand that by signing it obligates me to indemnify the parties named for any liability for injury or death of any person and damage to property caused by my negligent or intentional act or omission. I understand that by signing this form I am waiving valuable legal rights.
