Terms of Service
ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY:
By signing this document, I acknowledge and, intending to be legally bound, agree to all of the following:
I am in good physical condition, with no limiting physical conditions or disabilities, and able to safely use the equipment provided by Unite Fitness and participate in their exercise program.
I understand that participating in the cardio, strength and flexibility exercise involved in Unite’s fitness program, whether at one of Unite Fitness’s studios, in outdoor workouts or in online programming, carries risk of personal injury (which may include abnormal blood pressure, fainting, heart attack or death).
I am solely responsible for any such risks associated with my voluntary choice to exercise with Unite Fitness, or transit to and from Unite Fitness.
I hereby release, hold harmless, and forever discharge Unite Fitness, including all corporate entities comprising the Unite Fitness enterprise (including specific studio location limited liability companies), and their respective owners, officers, coaches, employees and agents, from all claims, demands, liabilities, rights or causes of action, present or future, whether known or unknown, anticipated or unanticipated, including any based on injury, harm or loss I may suffer as a result of participation in any Unite Fitness activities.
I agree that any pictures, audio, or visual recordings taken of me in connection with Unite Fitness’s training can be used for publication, promotion, articles, and advertisement without additional consent and without compensation at this time or any other time. If I do not consent to a recording, I will notify Unite Fitness at the time of capture. I also agree that Unite Fitness is in no way responsible for the safekeeping of my personal belongings while I attend class.
I will not record in any manner or format, or transmit in any media, permanently or temporarily, any (or any part of) Unite Fitness classes or activities, whether in person or online, for any commercial purpose. This will not prohibit me from recording and posting lawful, non-offensive content related to my participation in a Unite Fitness online, outdoor or studio class before or after a class with the consent of each participant who is identified in the content.
Special Limitation of Liability During the Coronavirus/COVID 19 Pandemic
Unite Fitness takes the coronavirus pandemic very seriously and has put in place preventative measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, Unite Fitness cannot guarantee that you, your family, or your guests will not become infected with COVID-19. It is possible that attending classes, events and activities at Unite Fitness may place you in close physical contact with other members, attendees and staff and could increase the risk that you, your family members, and/or your guests contract COVID-19.
Accordingly, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I, my family members and/or my guests may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at a Unite Fitness studio or in a Unite Fitness outdoor program and that such exposure or infection could result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at Unite Fitness may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself or others, including, but not limited to, Unite Fitness employees, members, and attendees.
I voluntarily agree (a) to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury, illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death) that may occur to me or my family members in connection with attendance at Unite Fitness or as a result of participation in Unite Fitness programs and (b) not to sue or make any claims against Unite Fitness or its instructors, members or employees, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto, based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of Unite Fitness, its instructors, members, or employees, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after attending Unite Fitness studio facilities or participating in any Unite Fitness outdoor or other program. I further agree to strictly obey instructors, observe safety rules, and stop any activity that is causing pain or discomfort and that in case of injury, the only medical treatment Unite Fitness will provide is first aid.
I will comply with all of the policies, including any relating to COVID-19, that Unite Fitness reasonably requires and publishes to its members.
I have read and understand this release and agreement and agree to its provisions. I am not under the influence of any drugs, alcohol, or other intoxicants. I am not suffering from any illness or incapacity. I am over 18 years of age. (If not over 18 years of age, parent or guardian must sign.) I understand that this Agreement and Release is a legally binding contract which has important legal ramifications and that I can review it with a lawyer before signing.
