I understand that the risks normally associated with the use of any exercise program and fitness equipment are increased for anyone who is injured, physically compromised, or under medication and I accept full responsibility for my participation in the program.
I am aware that I should consult with a physician before I undertake any physical exercise programs and /or any associated activities in SafeFit. I understand that SafeFit is being offered as a wellness program and not as a substitute for medical care by a physician.
I voluntarily choose to participate in the SafeFit Program. I understand that participating in SafeFit is not required as part of my employment and is voluntary on my part. All time in which I participate in SafeFit are considered to be unpaid time. Therefore, I understand that I should make these appointments outside of my scheduled work hours.
