should follow the program and instructions of Trainer to the best of their ability to maximize their
results and better achieve their goals. Remember, the ultimate results are up to the Client: Trainer
will show Client how to work his muscles correctly and encourage him/her to go to his/her safe limit,
but Client is the only one who can make sure he/she works out consistently, eats properly, gets
plenty of sleep, and lives a healthy lifestyle. Fitness Assessment and Orientation is provided at no charge, as long as one session from the program offerings is used. If no session takes place, you will
be charged a customary $25 fee for the assessment.
