You should always consult your physican or other healthcare provider, before changing your diet or starting and exercise program.
Terms & Conditions for Real Bodies Gym Users
As a 24 hour secure access fitness facility, Real Bodies Health & Fitness Ltd (hereafter referred to as “Real Bodies Gym”), has a few different policies and procedures than a typical fitness facility. Please read the information carefully.
If you have any questions, please ask before acknowledging this agreement at the bottom.
Compliance with rules
I understand and agree that a 24/7 gym membership is a special membership based on trust and is a privilege, which can be taken away for a violation of rules. As a gym member, I agree to abide by all gym membership and 24/7 membership rules, which will be posted at the facility/website and may be amended from time to time at the sole discretion of Real Bodies Gym.
The additional rules below apply to a 24/7 membership:
Mandatory annual £20 fee for an access card/fob for a 24/7 membership. A replacement card/fob is available for £15.
Only one 24/7 member may enter Real Bodies Gym main door at a time during non-staffed hours.
Card or fob sharing is strictly prohibited and will result in an immediate loss of membership. Card or fob sharing is viewed by the ownership as stealing services.
Only active and fully paid up members will be allowed entry.
Pre-approved 24/7 members, under the age of 18, must be accompanied by an approved member/parent until they reach the age of 18.
I agree that improper unauthorized use of the facility may result in member suspension or cancellation. I agree not to let anyone use my card for any reason, and I agree to report any situation that appears to be card/fob sharing to Real Bodies Gym staff.
A security “tailgate” system has been installed to monitor and record instances of “tailgating”. I understand that one act of card/fob sharing will result in immediate membership suspension or termination.
Real Bodies Gym reserves the right to suspend or cancel the rights, privileges, and membership of any member whose actions are detrimental to the use, safety, and enjoyment of the facilities.
I understand that I am purchasing a membership at a 24/7 facility that allows access at any time. As such, I am aware that there will be no supervision or assistance except during staffed hours. Staffed hours may change at the sole discretion of Real Bodies Gym. I am aware that if I get injured, become unconscious, suffer a stroke, heart attack or any other medical emergency or event that there will likely be no one to respond to my emergency and that Real Bodies Gym has no duty to provide assistance to me while I am at Real Bodies Gym. I understand that even though Real Bodies Gym is equipped with surveillance cameras, these record, but are not monitored continuously. Help will not be available during non-staffed hours. A first aid station, AED and emergency intercom are in the facility.
Emergency services can be called by the mobile phone you must have on your person and an emergency access fob can be used to unlock the front door to allow entry. (Use the intercom for emergency fob access code)
Acknowledgement of Risk and Waiver of Liability
I voluntarily assume the risk of injury, accident, death, loss, cost or damage to my person or property which might arise from my use of Real Bodies Gym, and I agree to hold harmless and release Real Bodies Gym and all affiliated corporations, and its officers, directors, board members, agents, employees, representatives, executors, and all others from any and all liability. I also release all of those mentioned, and any others acting on their behalf, from any responsibility or liability for any injury or damage to myself including those caused by the negligent act or omission of any of those mentioned or others acting on their behalf or in any way arising out of or connected with my participation in any activities or the use of any equipment at Real Bodies Gym during staffed or non-staffed hours.
I understand that a physical fitness program may include exercises to build the cardio-respiratory system (heart and lungs), the musculoskeletal system (muscle endurance, strength, and flexibility), and to improve body composition (decrease of body fat in individuals needing to lose fat, with an increase in muscle and bone). Exercise may include aerobic activities (treadmill walking/running, bicycle riding, rowing machine exercise, group aerobic activity and other such activities), calisthenics, and weightlifting to improve muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility exercises to improve joint range of motion.
Description of Potential Risks
I understand that the reaction of the heart, lung, and blood vessel system to such exercise cannot always be predicted with accuracy. I know there is a risk of certain abnormal changes occurring during exercise, which may include abnormalities of blood pressure or heart rate, in effect of functioning of the heart, and in rare instances heart attacks. Use of the weightlifting equipment, and engaging in heavy body calisthenics, can lead to musculoskeletal strains, pain, and injury if adequate warm-up, gradual progression, and safety procedures are not followed.
(PARQ) Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire
Regular physical activity is fun and healthy, and increasingly more people are starting to become more active every day. Becoming more active is very safe for most people. However, some people should check with their Doctor before they start becoming much more physically active.
If you are planning to become much more physically active than you are now, start by answering the seven questions in the box below. If you are between the ages of 15 and 69, this questionnaire (the PARQ) will tell you if you should check with your Doctor before you start. If you are over 69 years of age, and you are not used to being active, check with your Doctor.
Please read the questions below carefully and answer each one honestly before acknowledging this agreement at the bottom.
Common sense is your best guide when you answer these questions. If the answer is Yes to any of these questions, do NOT acknowledge this agreement but discuss first with a staff member of Real Bodies Gym and/or your Doctor.
Cleared for Exercise
I certify that I am in good physical health and I am able to undertake and engage in the range of physical activities in which I choose to participate at Real Bodies Gym. I assume all responsibility for updating the facility with respect to any changes in my physical or mental condition and for reporting all injuries sustained at the facility to Real Bodies Gym staff. I understand and am aware that strength, flexibility, aerobic and anaerobic exercise, including the use of any equipment, is a potentially hazardous activity. I also understand that fitness activities involve a risk of injury, and even death, and that I am voluntarily participating in these activities and using equipment with knowledge of all the dangers involved.
I do hereby agree to expressly assume and accept any and all risks of injury or death either accidental or otherwise. This waiver, release and indemnification agreement includes, without limitation, all injuries which may occur as a result of
(a) my use of all amenities and equipment in the facility and my participation in any class, activity or personal training,

(c) my slipping or falling while in the facility, on the facility premises, including adjacent pavements/walkways and parking areas.
