I hereby agree to expressly assume and accept any and all risks of injury, regardless of severity, or death.

I have been advised that an examination by a physician should be obtained by anyone prior to commencing a fitness and/or exercise program, or initiating a substantial change in the amount of regular physical activity performed. If I understand that I have chosen not to obtain a physician’s consent prior to beginning this fitness program with Trainer, I hereby agree that I am doing so solely at my own risk. In any event, I acknowledge and agree that I assume the risks associated with any and all fitness related activities and/or exercises in which I participate.

I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE THOROUGHLY READ THIS FORM IN ITS ENTIRETY AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY.

GENERAL DISCLOSURE
You should consult your physician or other healthcare professional before starting any fitness program to determine if it is right for your needs. This is particularly true if you (or your family) have a history of high blood pressure or heart disease, or if you have ever experienced chest pain when exercising or have experienced chest pain in the past month when not engaged in physical activity, smoke, have high cholesterol, are obese, or have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by a change in physical activity. Do not start this fitness program if your physician or health care provider advises against it. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time while exercising you should stop immediately.

Site Disclaimer

We’re all about transparency. We started this website because we love a healthy and happier lifestyle, but we still learn things each and every day. We are not licensed personal trainers, nutritionists, and we don’t have a medical background. We have, however, partnered and collaborated with some truly amazing individuals to produce content that’s important to your health journey. These individuals have certifications and licenses in many fields, and can all be found on the articles and content written by them.

Regardless, the FTC requires bloggers to disclose whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations. So here goes…

First, the obvious: We’re all humans here (shocking I know). We have to eat and provide for ourselves and our families the same way everyone else does. Up until this point we have not accepted any sort of sponsorships, but that’s not to say we won’t in the future. Rest assured, if we do partner with a company it’s because we deeply align with their mission and values and find an added benefit to ourselves and this community.

Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if we meet with someone and they grab the bill for lunch, we would need to disclose this. Ditto if we use an Amazon link that gets us 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets us 0 cents. If someone gives us a comfy t-shirt with a logo and we wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place. This would be tedious for us and even more tedious for readers to go through. But rules is rules. To cover our butts and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every link and product we use, the following all hold true:
