§  § 

CONSENT, WAIVER, RELEASE & INDEMNITY AGREEMENT 

1.0) As part of the consideration for the agreement with Amarillo CrossFit, LLC (DBA: Amarillo Strength &  Conditioning, “AS&C”), I (“Participant”) represent, and promise to AS&C that:  

1.1) I, (“Participant”), or Participant’s parent or legal guardian  if the Participant is under the age of 18 years, request the use of AS&C’s facilities and/or equipment, or the  purchase or provision of lessons, instruction and/or training, including but not limited to, use of barbells,  use of free weights, weightlifting, powerlifting, olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, plyometrics, calisthenics,  running, swimming, rowing, biking, climbing, jumping, throwing, hitting, diet, nutrition, injury prevention,  rehabilitation, prehabilitation, and/or activities incidental thereto individually and collectively (“Training  Activities”/”Training”) and the use of equipment and facilities at 4612 Maverick St, Amarillo, TX 79109  and/or any public or private location (collectively “Facilities and Equipment”). 

1.2) I understand that I am prohibited from participating in Training Activities without executing this  Consent Waiver, Release, & Indemnity Agreement

and returning it to AS&C. The representations in this  agreement shall be construed as evidence of my informed consent. 

1.3) I had opportunity to ask questions about training facilities, equipment, safety, and injury prevention. I  will obey warnings posted on any side of any of the doors, on equipment, by email, warnings written on any  of whiteboards in the gym, text messages, emails, social media posts, verbal warnings from AS&C,  members, or any other method. If I participate without seeking instructions or I participate without  immediate supervision, my participation shall be deemed as actual refusal of instruction and deliberate  reliance on solely my own experience, knowledge, training, expertise, and education. AS&C owes me no  duty relating to facilities and equipment for competitions and events sanctioned, organized, ran, or held by  another party or at another venue. I inspected the Facilities and Equipment to my satisfaction, before each  instance of training. I deliberately chose whether or not to use safety measures or safer alternatives. Any  use of facilities or equipment, individually or in combination, shall be construed that I had opportunity to  inspect, ask questions, consult with AS&C, refuse to use the facilities or equipment, I was actually aware of  any defect, and that I waived opportunity to resolve any doubts, suspicions, concerns, or uncertainty  regarding conditions of equipment and facilities. 

1.4) I understand and acknowledge that attending, participating in, volunteering at or spectating Training  Activities may involve me performing strenuous activities, or directly or indirectly exposed to activities,  conditions, individuals, equipment or events which may foreseeably cause weight loss, weight gain,  disability, death, illness, minor injury, serious injury, or property loss. I understand acknowledge, and  anticipate that:   1) “injury” includes, but is not limited, to loss of consciousness, falls, head trauma,  concussion, over exertion, “exertional rhabdomyolysis”, sprains, strains, hernias, spinal  injury, full and partial paralysis, death, and   2) accidents and injuries may occur during Training Activities at the Facilities,

1.5) I WILL HOLD AS&C HARMLESS, QUIT, AND WAIVE ANY CLAIM, CAUSE OF ACTION, LIABILITY,  RECOVERY, OR DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE ACTIVITIES AND SIMILAR  ACTIVITIES CONTEMPLATED IN THIS AGREEMENT. 

1.6) I am in the superior position to mitigate injury, mitigate severity of injury, and decide my needs for  medical advice, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment. I have superior knowledge and access to  knowledge relating to factors that may increase the likelihood and severity of injury, including my: ability to  participate, general health, past and current condition, and any acute conditions. I was advised to and had  opportunity to consult with my healthcare providers, before executing this agreement and before  participation in training activities. I shall rely solely on my healthcare provider for examination, diagnosis, or  treatment. I will not participate in training activities, including spotting, if I believe or have reason to believe  that I am currently injured or I am likely to be injured. I am responsible for the aggravation or re-injury of  any preexisting condition, whether the condition is known or unknown. 

1.7) I have not and shall not rely on AS&C for medical advice, diagnosis, examination, or treatment. I  acknowledge that AS&C is not a healthcare provider. If I am a beginner/beginning lifter, unless I am under  immediate supervision, when possible I will lift inside of a rack and use rack safety pins set an appropriate  height to prevent being trapped and/or crushed and to prevent equipment from falling on me.   

1.8) I am not required to “spot”. I will decline to be a spotter if I believe or have reason to believe that I am  unable to safely spot. Spotters are intended for encouragement only, and not as a substitute or  replacement of safety equipment. Use of a spotter does not diminish the participant’s standard of care  contemplated by this document. “Spotting” includes but is not limited to critiquing performance and  providing light assistance for unracking/re-racking or in the event a lift appears to fail. 

1.9) I understand that failure to perform Training Activities in accordance with the representations  contemplated in this document, instructions, or safety guidelines shall be deemed and construed as the  chief contributing factor or as the sole proximate cause of any resulting injury.   

1.10) I participate knowing that I may decline participation at any time, for any reason, or for no reason.  My participation in training activities shall be construed as if I knowingly and deliberately   1) chose the amount, nature, and intensity of my participation, and   2) disregarded any indications, signs, counsel, or advisement against participation in  Training.  

1.11) I will, immediately after use, return equipment to appropriate storage.   

1.12) I understand that several other members use the facility and equipment and that the ways and  methods of use will cause frequent constant changes in the placement and condition of facilities and  equipment including walking areas. I acknowledge and accept that equipment may be used or left in  places that may create hazardous obstacles to movement. I surrender, waive, and forever quit any cause  of action slip/trip and fall injuries. Further, I surrender, waive, and forever quit any legal or equitable rights or remedies to enforce any award for damages arising from slip/trip and fall injuries. I will immediately  report any harassment, bullying, or abuse of myself or other members occurring at AS&C facilities to AS&C.  

2.0) I acknowledge the risks inherent in, and connected with these Training Activities, conditions, facilities,  equipment or events, and with the full understanding of the activities I will be performing, on behalf of  myself, my executors, administrators, heirs, successors, assigns, and next of kin, I HEREBY FULLY  ASSUME THE RISKS OF INJURY, ILLNESS, DISABILITY, DEATH, OR LOSS OR DAMAGE TO PERSON  OR PROPERTY INHERENT IN, AND/OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH, ATTENDING,  PARTICIPATING IN, AND SPECTATING AN AMARILLO STRENGTH & CONDITIONING OR OTHER  TRAINING ACTIVITIES AT THE FACILITIES EVEN IF ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF OTHER  PERSONS EXECUTING A SIMILAR WAIVER AND RELEASE FROM LIABILITY.  2.1) IF I AM ADJUDICATED IN BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT, IN WHOLE OR PART, I SHALL BE  BARRED FROM RECOVERY AGAINST AS&C FOR ANY AND ALL REMEDIES INCLUDING FOR  COMPENSATORY DAMAGES, PUNITIVE AWARDS, COSTS, INTEREST, OR ATTORNEY FEES.
