I am aware that there are significant risks involved in all aspects of physical training. I understand that the reaction of the heart, lungs, and vascular system when exercising cannot always be predicted accurately. I understand that there is a risk of certain abnormal changes occurring during or following exercise which may include abnormalities of blood pressure or heart rate; chest, arm, or leg discomfort; transient light-headedness or fainting; and in rare instances, heart attack, stroke or even death. Excessive work can result (in rare cases) in exertional rhabdomyolysis. I should look for signs of excessive soreness, darkened urine, and pain in the kidney areas in the days following a particularly intense workout. While this type of injury is rare, it can occur due to several factors, including but not limited to, genetic predisposition or dehydration, that may be beyond the control of my trainer. I understand that the programs and classes offered by ‘Funk CrossFit’ are of a nature and kind that are extremely strenuous and can/may push me to the limits of my physical abilities. These risks include but are not limited to falls which can result in severe injury or death, injury, or death due to negligence on the part of myself, my training partner, or other people around me. Furthermore, injury or risk of death can occur due to improper use or failure of equipment. I am aware that any of these above-mentioned risks may result in severe injury or death to myself.
