PROVISION OF SERVICES
You are agreeing to contract Ed Stivala Limited for the purposes of an exercise programme to improve your fitness. You agree to pay for the services at the agreed rate; either monthly or per session.
You agree that you have read, understood and completed the PAR-Q. All questions have been answered to the best of your knowledge.
The purpose of an exercise programme is to help you to achieve health and fitness goals. Your programme will be based upon your present activity / exercise levels and the goals that you wish to achieve. You will experience some feelings of exertion during each activity session and will become hot and uncomfortable at times. Your breathing and heart rate will increase as a result of these activities as would be expected from physical exercise of this type. As your fitness improves, you will participate in more vigorous levels of activity, if this is part of your goal. Activities will be appropriately explained and demonstrated to you but please feel free to ask questions about anything you are unclear about.
Any exercise programme carries with it an element of risk. Your sessions are designed to minimize the risks whilst providing an effective exercise/activity programme. Please inform your Coach if, for any reason (such as illness or injury which might be aggravated by exercise), you should not participate in an activity.
During training sessions with your Coach present you will be closely supervised. During training sessions where your Coach is not present you will be responsible for your own safety. If, at any time, you feel undue pain or excessive discomfort stop the activity and inform your Coach (if present) or medical professional of your symptoms.
ONLINE & REMOTE COACHING
As with any fitness and exercise programme, when using online content and video you need to use your common sense. If you are feeling unwell do not exercice.

- any equipment is safe and in a suitable condition for the activity being performed
- the surrounding floor space is entirely clear to remove any hazards that may increase the risk of slips, trips or falls
- there are no distractions throughout the duration of the session
- there is sufficient heating, lighting, ventilation and hydration.
You are free to withdraw from any activity at any time you wish.
Participation in the programme described to you by your Coach is entirely at your choice. The nature, purpose, risks and benefits will be explained to you so that you understand what is required. If you are not sure of any aspect of your programme you are encouraged to ask questions before attempting an activity/session or exercise. You may stop at any time.
