In checking the box below I undertake to use the gym, grounds and equipment in a safe and responsible manner at all times to ensure the safety of myself and all other users. I will request assistance before using any equipment that I have not previously been shown how to use. I am fit to exercise and will consult my doctor prior to exercise if there is any change in my health and abide by his/her recommendations.

I have read the Terms and Conditions set out below and agree to them in so far as they relate to my use of Capel Gym.
