Exercise session

 

Informed consent 

 

I understand that the purpose of the exercise session is to provide safe and effective exercise to improve health and fitness. Exercises may include: 

  • Warm-up activities involve gentle cardiovascular exercises such as walking, jogging, jumping, lunging and turning (this could mean a variety of age-appropriate accessories).

  • Muscular strength and endurance activities using body weight. Motor fitness skills such as balance, coordination and flexibility (this could involve a variety of age-appropriate accessories).

  • Cool-down and developmental flexibility exercises to improve movement around the joints and range of motion

 

The instructions and advice presented are in no way intended to be a substitute for medical counselling/advice. I understand that exercises are designed for the attendants' needs to avoid injuries. 

 

By booking and confirming the attendance to the session, I assume there is a low risk of injury resulting from performing the exercises shown, and the instructor would be only liable if there is a breach of duty of care. 

I understand that a programme of regular exercise is beneficial. Some of these benefits include a decrease in risk of heart disease, a decrease in body fat; improved blood pressure; improved psychological function (including self-esteem); and enhanced aerobic fitness.
