My story how a fitness waiver form saved my business
Here is my story about a guy in Orange County that had a a television in the gym was working out come crashing to the floor and ruined his knee. It was pretty soon after joining an exclusive gym that jack hired a “fitness trainer” to help him workout. Not long after they started their workout he was standing by the treadmill and noticed that the TV was turned the other direction and he couldn’t watch it while working out. Her reached over to turn it and While holding the television in place in an attempt to prevent it from crashing to the floor, the gym accident occurred. It was a knee injury had a devastating effect on his life: it was painful and prevented him from walking properly, which, in turn, forced him to take time off from work; as his income ceased, and his medical bills mounted. Since he was not exercising when the accident occurred, he reasoned that the gym and the trainer that he hired was was liable for his injuries.
To his dismay, he lost the case. Had he carefully read the fitness waiver form, he would have found that the fitness waiver exempted the gym from responsibility for his injuries and property loss or damage as long as he was on the gyms premises, whether he was using exercise equipment or not. In court he contended that the negligence release must be reasonably related to the purpose of the release, which was fitness and it held up.

Yes, but it is not wise.
If you have years of experience, just take the ACE exam and maintain your continuing education credits.
If you do get sued, no, a fitness waiver form would look much better in court with a certification
