PERSONAL TRAINING PAR-Q, POLICIES, & WAIVER

Please take 5-10 minutes to review, acknowledge, electronically sign & send our PAR-Q, Policies, and Waiver. This information is important so that we know you’re in good health, physically capable to participate in an exercise program, you understand our policies, and do not hold ELITE CONDITIONING (and Jon McQueen) liable before, during, and after your participation in our program.

POLICIES

1. If you have any of the following physical conditions, you may be required to have a Medical Clearance and Physician’s Consent Form:

  • Hypertension (>145/95 mm Hg)
  • Hyperlipidemia (cholesterol >220 mg/dl or a total cholesterol-to-HDL ratio of >5.0)
  • Diabetes
  • Family history of heart disease prior to age 60
  • Smoking
  • Abnormal resting EKG
  • Any other condition that ELITE CONDITIONING in its sole discretion may deem to present an unreasonable risk to your health, were you to participate in a fitness evaluation or program.

2. Unless other arrangements are made, Personal Training sessions and Program Design explanations (these services herein individually and collectively referred to as “sessions”) last approximately fifty (50) minutes. In order to provide the best service to all Clients, ELITE CONDITIONING cannot commit to extending any particular session beyond its previously scheduled time. In those cases where schedules do permit, Clients may request to extend sessions beyond fifty minutes at the current hourly session rate.

3. Sessions will be conducted at location(s) specified by the Trainer.

4. Rates for ELITE CONDITIONING services are subject to change. Services prepaid for by Client, which are unused at the time of any rate change, will be honored at the price already paid.

5. Time slots are available on a “first-come, first-serve” basis by appointment. Sessions, whether purchased a la carte or as part of a package, must be paid for when the appointment is booked. Client may schedule prepaid sessions in advance.

6. Client is required to train at the minimum sessions per week in which they signed up for. For example, if a client signed up for two (2) sessions per week, they're required to meet this minimum. If Client is unable to meet this minimum requirement, they forfeit the session(s) for the week. On a case-by-case basis, ELITE CONDITIONING may allow Client to make-up these session(s) in the subsequent week.
I acknowledge and accept the weekly training minimum policy.

7. In order to provide the best possible service to all Clients, ELITE CONDITIONING asks that all Clients be ready to begin their session at the scheduled time. Time lost at the beginning of a session due to a Client’s tardiness cannot be made up at the end of the session as that could potentially impact the next scheduled Client. Unless prior arrangements have been made, a Client will be deemed a “No-Show” when they are fifteen (15) minutes late for an appointment. No refunds or credits will be given for “No-Shows”.

8. Regarding cancellations:

  • All cancellations must be made with a minimum of 24 hours advance notice in order to receive credit for the session. Due to an inability to fill the previously blocked time period, cancellations with less than 24 hours’ notice given will not qualify for a credit and Client will be charged for the session. Cancellations can be made by call/text: 619-302-2317; or e-mail: jon@eliteconditioning.net to be deemed effective.
  • All qualifying cancellations will result in a credit being given which can be applied to a session(s) in the same or subsequent week, or other products or services from ELITE CONDITIONING.
    I acknowledge and accept the cancellation policy.

9. Payment is due before or at the time the appointment for a session is booked. ELITE CONDITIONING accepts cash, checks, and all major credit cards.

10. Clients are required to observe any and all rules of the gym or facility where workouts take place, if applicable.

11. Shirts and shoes are required at all times during sessions. Client should also have water available as necessary during the workout.

12. Client consents to and releases ELITE CONDITIONING and/or any other location/facility we may conduct activities from any liability resulting from any of the two parties.
I acknowledge and accept.

13. Clients have the right to terminate a particular exercise or workout at any time. You are in control of your workouts. If an exercise is uncomfortable or painful, or if you want to stop for any reason, you may do so. If a particular exercise is painful for you to do or you have an injury or other limitation that makes it difficult for you to do, ELITE CONDITIONING can attempt to substitute another exercise to work that particular muscle group.

14. You will get from your workouts what you put in. Results will vary by individual and ELITE CONDITIONING cannot guarantee specific results. Client acknowledges that Client is responsible for their decisions regarding whether or not to exercise consistently, eat properly, rest enough, and live a healthy lifestyle.

15. ELITE CONDITIONING respects your privacy. Due to the nature of our services, it is necessary to collect certain personal information from Clients. All information collected is treated as STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL, and ELITE CONDITIONING will not share or redistribute your information with any third party except as necessary to provide services purchased by the Client, or as required by law. Any information gathered from a Client is simply for our records and, if applicable, necessary to provide the services to the Client for which we have been contracted.

16. All Terms and Conditions are subject to change.
