13. Disclaimers

Before beginning any exercise program please consult with your physician or health care provider.

Description of Potential Risks:  I understand that the reaction of the heart, lung, and blood vessel system to such exercise cannot always be predicted with accuracy.  I know there is a risk of certain abnormal changes occurring during or following exercise which may include abnormalities of blood pressure or heart rate, ineffective functioning of the heart, and in rare instances, heart attacks.  Use of the weight lifting equipment, and engaging in heavy body calisthenics, can lead to musculoskeletal strains, pain, and injury if adequate warm-up, gradual progression and safety procedures are not followed.   

Description of Potential Benefits:  I understand that a program of regular exercise for the heart and lungs, muscles and joints, has many associated benefits.  These may include a decrease in body fat, improvement in blood fats and blood pressure, improvement in psychological function, and a decrease in risk of heart disease.
