THE HEALTH, FITNESS AND NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION CONTAINED HEREIN IS FOR ENTERTAINMENT AND INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND IS NOT INTENDED AS MEDICAL ADVICE NOR IS IT A SUBSTITUTE FOR PROFESSIONAL ADVICE, DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT OF ANY DISEASE OR CONDITION.
Consult your physician or health care provider before beginning any nutrition, supplementation or exercise program. This is particularly true if you have any medical issues, such as high blood pressure or heart disease, or any condition that may be made worse by a change in physical activity. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time while exercising you should stop immediately.
Consent and Explanation to the User
It is the goal of Optimis Services, Inc. and OptimisCorp (the “Companies”) to assist you in achieving your health, nutrition, strength and/or fitness (“Wellness”) goals. To this end, the Companies will perform assessments; provide workout plans, one-on-one and group coaching and training, nutrition and meal advice, and lectures on wellness-related subjects; lead health, nutrition, strength and fitness classes; and provide or sell wellness-related products (the “Wellness Program”).
Among the assessments offered are the Health Education And Risk Test (“HEART”) and the Sports Training And Readiness Test (“START”). HEART is a group of questions and tests that provide an estimation of your health, current level of fitness, and risk of becoming ill. HEART consists of an online questionnaire and an in-person assessment, after which you are provided with a HEART score and summary of the results. START is a collection of tests and measurements performed to assess an individual’s ability to participate in various sports and exercise activities as well as identify musculoskeletal weaknesses in athletes looking to improve performance in a specific sport and position. Once assessed, the individual is given a baseline START score and exercises to do in order to improve the individual’s score and reduce the risk of injury.
In making these products and services available for your participation, the Companies assume no responsibility for injury or other adverse health effects. The responsibility is assumed entirely by you. You should have adequate personal insurance coverage.
All physical activity involves risk of injury and other adverse health effects. During any physical activity, particularly the workouts and the VO2max tests, there exists the possibility of abnormal blood pressure; fainting; irregular, fast, or slow heart rhythm; and in extremely rare instances, heart attack, stroke, or death. Every effort will be made to minimize these risks by evaluation of preliminary information related to your health and fitness, and monitoring during the tests by trained personnel.
Responsibilities of the Participant
Information you possess about your health status or previous experiences of heart-related symptoms (e.g., shortness of breath with low-level activity, pain, pressure, tightness, heaviness in the chest, neck, jaw, back, and/or arms) with physical effort may affect the safety of your fitness program and VO2max test.
Your prompt reporting of these and any other unusual feelings, especially during the test, is very important. You are responsible for fully disclosing your medical history, as well as symptoms that may occur during the test. You are also expected to report all medications taken recently.
The results obtained from the assessments and related tests will assist in developing an individualized program for you to improve your health, lower your risk of becoming ill, and track the changes in your health status in response to engaging in fitness programs.
TO PARENTS AND GUARDIANS (of children under 18): You are responsible for monitoring and supervising your child’s participation in any assessments and his or her use of any workout programs. If you become aware that your child is participating in any assessments, workout plans or other services provided by the Companies, please contact us immediately so that we can disable his or her access.
