Assumption of Risk and Release for Colgate Employee Recreation Workshops *
I understand that participation in the wellness classes offered at Colgate University is at my own risk. I understand that in the event of an injury, I must personally accept the responsibility for the full expense of medical attention as well as other expenses arising out of such injury. I will take full responsibility for monitoring my heart rate and will adjust my exercises to keep within my proper target range. I assume full responsibility to discontinue any exercise that causes abnormal pain, and will consult the class leader about substituting an appropriate alternate exercise. I represent that I am in good physical health, and have appropriate medical insurance in the event that I need medical attention. I understand that prior to participating in any physical activity, I should consult a physician. If I have had any recent physical problem or surgery, particularly of the joints or muscles, I will take full responsibility for consulting a physician before beginning this program. I release and hold Colgate University and its Board of Trustees, officers and employees harmless from any claims or liabilities for personal injuries or other damages incurred by me, whether or not resulting from their negligence, as a result of such participation.
