Waiver Form Templates
The main purpose of the waiver and/or informed consent is to advise your client(s) of the risks and benefits of participating in your fitness class(es) and may give you some protection if a lawsuit is filed against you. They are put in place as an important step for your protection and they may be taken into consideration if a client(s) wishes to take you to court if they suffer damages, injuries, and/or death during one of your classes/workshops/workouts.
With so many fitness classes/workshops/workouts being offered throughout the fitness industry, you as a fitness professional should take the necessary steps to ensure that the waiver/consent form you are having your client(s) sign is applicable to the fitness service(s) you are offering.
The cost to have a specific draft written up for you by a licenced attorney may be well worth the cost in the long run in order to have the waiver/informed consent form sufficiently cover you in case of injury, property damage or even death if any of these incidents occur during one of your classes/workshops/workouts.
