Informed consent for exercise prescription

Programme objectives and procedures
I understand that the purpose of the exercise programme is to provide safe and individualised exercise to improve health and fitness. Exercises may include:

Cardiovascular machine activities - treadmill walking or jogging, rowing, upright or recumbent cycling, stair climbing and other such activities in outdoor environments

Resistance training activities using resistance machines, free weights or circuit training to improve muscular strength or endurance
Core and flexibility exercises to improve core stability and movement around the joints and range of motion


Potential risks
The exercise programme is designed to place a gradually increasing workload on the cardiovascular and muscular systems and thereby improve their function. The reaction of the cardiovascular and muscular system to such exercise cannot always be predicted with complete accuracy. There is a risk of certain changes that might occur during or following the exercise. These changes could relate to blood pressure or heart rate.

Potential benefits
I understand that a programme of regular exercise has been shown to be beneficial. Some of these benefits include:
•    A decrease in risk of heart disease
•    A decrease in body fat
•    Improved blood pressure
•    Improvement in psychological function
•    Improvement in aerobic fitness

The personal training programme has been explained to me and my questions regarding the programme have been answered to my satisfaction. I understand that I am free to withdraw at any time. The information obtained will be treated as private and confidential.
I understand that I am fully responsible for my own progression outside of any training sessions I receive and any advice given to me regarding my training, external training and lifestyle choices.
