After Hours Gym - Exercise Safety Jun 20th, 2015
Joining a gym is a ‘recreational activity’ involving physical activity. Physical activity and sport in general contain inherently dangerous elements, and participation involves an assumption of risk. Accidents can and do happen which may result in personal injury, death or property damage. Prior to joining, you should ensure you are aware and comfortable with the risks involved, including those risks associated with any health condition you may have.

To the best of our knowledge, the facilities and physical activity programs offered by Central West Health and Rehabilitation have been designed and established to provide the optimum level of beneficial exercise and enjoyment without compromising the health and safety of those who utilize the facilities or participate in the activities. Because of the nature of the programs made available at Central West Health and Rehabilitation, and the equipment, which is an integral part of many of the activities, there is an inherent risk of injury which characterizes any exercise activity resulting in a practical limitation placed on Central West Health and Rehabilitation in its efforts to prevent injuries to participants, whether actively participating in exercises, utilizing the equipment or taking advantage of the various other facilities at the Centre.

Central West Health and Rehabilitation enlists your assistance in assuring that the facilities and the equipment are utilized in a proper manner so that the inherent risks which exist under the control of the Centre, as well as those outside the control of the Centre and partially within the control of each individual participant, are minimized by the participant’s thoughtful and cautious use of both the equipment and the facilities.

Following are a number of short videos on exercise safety. To confirm you have watched each there is a brief quiz.
