Conditions of Use of Emanate Fitness Services
Your involvement in Emanate Fitness services will encourage you to participate in a range of physical activities including aerobic-type activities (such as walking, running, boxing, skipping, power ropes, jumping, rowing machine, treadmill), calisthenics and/or weight lifting type activities, flexibility activities and agility drills (including rapid changes of movement, sprinting, jumping, coordination and balance exercises).
You need to be aware that physical activity and exercise presents the possibility of risk of injury or illness or certain abnormal changes including but not limited to increase or decrease in blood pressure and/or heart rate, ineffective functioning of the heart, musculoskeletal pain, strain and injury, fainting, nausea and in rare instances, heart attack or death. Consequently, it is crucial that you:
- Consult with your general practitioner prior to commencing an exercise program to receive clearance to undertake an exercise program as well as to ensure that you are aware of any individual limitations, contraindications or restrictions to you participating in physical activity or certain types of physical activity;
- Immediately seek medical attention from your general practitioner or appropriate allied health professional if you experience abnormal or unexpected changes to your physical condition at any time;
- Immediately cease physical activity and inform your trainer if you experience any abnormal symptoms or symptoms that you are uncertain about including but not limited to unusual fatigue, lightheadedness, confusion, dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, overheating, tightness or pain in the chest, blurring of vision or joint or muscle pain;
- Provide accurate information to your trainer (including in completion of the pre-exercise questionnaire) about any conditions you have which may affect your ability and tolerance to undertake physical activity or which may be impacted by physical activity.
Additional risks to those presented by physical activity may be presented by the weather, environment, incorrect use of exercise equipment, pollution and other factors. Many of these factors will be outside of our control and consequently, we cannot accept liability for any damage sustained by you as a consequence of these factors. You should endeavour to reduce these risks and ensure that you take appropriate precautions when undertaking physical activity including by wearing suitable clothing and footwear (loose and comfortable clothing, warmer clothing and potentially thermal gear during winter, running or cross-trainer shoes and not open toed shoes), bringing along a towel, adhering to all safety instructions provided by trainers, seeking clarification if instructions provided are unclear to you and bringing along sufficient water to ensure you do not suffer dehydration. If you have a medical condition, you will also need to consider whether you need to bring along anything in relation to that condition such as Ventolin if you suffer from asthma.
Emanate staff are not qualified to provide you with medical advice and you must consult a qualified medical professional if you have any questions or concerns in relation to any medical condition. You are responsible to make relevant inquiries and seek independent advice from an appropriate medical or allied health professional before engaging in Emanate Fitness services or acting upon any of the information on our website.
