Now, we’re not lawyers but we do know that having your clients sign a liability waiver is the first step to protecting your business.
A fitness waiver is a liability waiver completed by a client participating in a fitness program or class. The waiver is intended to release the trainer from liability for any injuries during an event or session hosted by the trainer. Once the waiver is signed, the client who signed waives the legal liability of the trainer if they get hurt during their participation.
