TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Assumption of Risk, Waiver, and Release Agreement
I represent and acknowledge that I have read and agree to the following terms and conditions:
I understand that engaging in any physical activity involves some risk. By signing this waiver, and/or by attending classes, activities, events, and programs, and/or by using the facilities, premises and equipment (“Classes” and “Premises”, as applicable) of LVL UP Studio (9393-7175 Quebec Inc.) and its subsidiaries or related entities (hereinafter, collectively “LVL UP”), I hereby acknowledge and agree, on behalf of myself, my spouse, my children, my heirs, assigns and/or personal representatives (the “Releasing Parties”), that there are certain inherent risks and dangers involved in the exercises in which I will engage, and in the exercise equipment that I will use, in connection with the Classes and Premises. I acknowledge that some of these risks cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries or other problems. I acknowledge and understand that participating in the Classes and my entry onto and use of the Premises may lead to injuries and/or illness that may range from minor to severe, including even death. I have read and completely understand LVL UP’s safety instructions, which are posted at the LVL UP facilities, and are included on the second page of this document. Accordingly, I hereby expressly, irrevocably and unconditionally acknowledge and agree on behalf of myself and the Releasing Parties that I am voluntarily participating in the Classes and entering onto and using the Premises and further expressly, irrevocably and unconditionally acknowledge and agree that participating in the exercises and Classes and entry onto and use of the Premises are undertaken at my own risk, and that I ASSUME ALL OF THE RISKS EXISTING IN PARTICIPATING IN THE EXERCISES AND CLASSES AND ENTRY ONTO AND USE OF THE PREMISES. To this end, I assume all risk of illness, physical injury, emotional injury or death to myself, my spouse, my children or third parties in attendance with me relating in whole or in part, directly or indirectly to the exercises, Classes, and Premises. I elect to participate in the exercises and Classes and enter onto and use the Premises notwithstanding the inherent risks associated therewith.
I acknowledge and understand that there is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (the “Virus”). I acknowledge and understand that LVL UP may be subject to certain restrictions and guidelines from local, state, and federal health departments and agencies that may impact LVL UP’s operations and my ability to attend the Classes and/or enter onto and use the Premises. I agree to always comply with all precautions LVL UP may take in light of the Virus. I expressly represent and warrant that I have not been advised by any doctor or health care provider to self-quarantine nor been ordered to quarantine as a result of potential exposure to the Virus. I further expressly represent and warrant that I am not experiencing any symptoms associated with the Virus (including, but not limited to, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell, or any other symptoms associated with the Virus as identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Protection) and have not knowingly been exposed to the Virus in the past 30 days. I represent and warrant that the representations in the previous two sentences (the “Virus Representations”) will be true upon my entry into the Premises and any Class, and I will not enter the Premises, use any equipment thereon or participate in any Class to the extent that such Virus Representations are not accurate. I hereby acknowledge and agree, on behalf of myself and the Releasing Parties that there are inherent risks and dangers of exposure to the Virus from attending the Classes and or entry onto and use of the Premises. I acknowledge that some of these risks cannot be eliminated even with proper precautions and full compliance with all local, state, and federal health orders and guidelines. I acknowledge and understand that this risk of exposure can result in serious illness or even death. Accordingly, I hereby expressly, irrevocably and unconditionally acknowledge and agree on behalf of myself and the Releasing Parties that I am voluntarily participating in the Classes and entering onto and using Premises and further expressly, irrevocably and unconditionally acknowledge and agree that participating in the Classes and entering onto and using Premises are undertaken at my own risk, and that I ASSUME ALL OF THE RISKS EXISTING THROUGH SUCH PARTICIPATION, ENTRANCE AND USE IN THE EVENT I AM EXPOSED TO THE VIRUS. To this end, I assume all risk of illness, physical injury, emotional injury or death to myself, my spouse, my children or third parties in attendance with me at the Classes and/or entry onto and/or use of the Premises. I elect to participate in the Classes and enter onto and use the Premises notwithstanding the inherent risks associated therewith.
ON MY BEHALF AND ON BEHALF OF THE RELEASING PARTIES, I HEREBY VOLUNTARILY, FULLY, EXPRESSLY, IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE, RELEASE, AND FOREVER DISCHARGE LVL UP, AND ITS OWNERS, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES AND RELATED COMPANIES AND ALL OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, REPRESENTATIVES, AND AGENTS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “RELEASED PARTIES”) FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, CAUSES OF ACTION, OR LIABILITIES, KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, FOR ANY INJURIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ILLNESS OR DEATH, OR ANY KIND OF DAMAGES INCURRED BY ME, MY SPOUSE, MY CHILDREN OR ANY THIRD PARTY IN ATTENDANCE WITH ME, MY SPOUSE OR MY CHILDREN WHICH IN ANY WAY ARISE OUT OF OR ARE CONNECTED WITH PARTICIPATION IN THE CLASSES, ENTRY ONTO OR USE OF THE PREMISES, OR ANY ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF THE RELEASED PARTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE NEGLIGENCE, GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR FAULT OF EITHER MYSELF OR THE RELEASED PARTIES WHETHER RELATING TO THE VIRUS OR OTHERWISE.

I agree that if the attendee or participant is a minor child, this Assumption of Risk, Waiver, and Release Agreement (this “Agreement”) is made on behalf of that minor child and that all of the releases, waivers and promises herein are binding on that minor child. I represent that I have full authority as a Parent or Legal Guardian to bind the minor child to this Agreement.
I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or illness (or death) that I, my spouse or my child[ren] may suffer due to their participation in the Classes or entry onto or use of the Premises, or alternatively, I agree to bear the costs of such injury or illness (or death) myself, whether relating to the Virus or otherwise. I further certify that I agree to assume the risk of any medical or physical condition that I, my spouse or my child[ren] may have, whether relating to the Virus or otherwise.
I agree to at all times comply with LVL UP’s rules, policies, and posted safety signs. I agree always to comply with the verbal instructions given to me by LVL UP’s staff. I acknowledge that my refusal to adhere to LVL UP’s rules, policies, and posted safety signs or failure to comply with verbal instructions given to me by LVL UP’s staff may result in my removal from Class and/or the Premises and may also result the termination of my membership. I further acknowledge that I am in sufficiently good physical condition to engage in vigorous exercise. I agree that if, in the subjective opinion of LVL UP staff, I would be at risk participating in LVL UP classes, that I may be denied access to the Classes and Premises.
