Liability Waiver & Release

Ensure Pilates is right for you before you start

Pilates and Barre are relatively gentle forms of exercise, suitable for all ages.

As a qualified Pilates Instructor and Barre Instructor with years of experience, I have helped many students to safely maintain and improve their fitness, strength and flexibility.

Pre-existing medical conditions or injuries won't necessarily prevent you benefiting from Pilates or Barre, and I can often adapt exercises and moves to accommodate specific needs.

Even so, any physical exercise carries the risk of injury, so it is important to check that Pilates or Barre is right for you, and to let me know of any potential issues. Before commencing any Pilates or Barre class you may wish to consult with your GP or consultant to ensure that it is right for you at the moment.

You acknowledge that you have carefully read this “waiver & release” and fully understand that it is a release of liability.

You agree that if you engage in any physical exercise or activity, you do so entirely at your own risk. It is your responsibility to disclose to your Instructor, Oonagh McDevitt any illness or condition you suffer from and any medication you are taking. You must update any such disclosure if your circumstances change at any time.

This waiver and release of liability includes, without limitation, all injuries which may occur as a result of your participation in any activity or personal training session by your Instructor, Oonagh McDevitt.

You expressly agree to release and discharge your Instructor, Oonagh McDevitt, as far as possible under applicable law from any and all claims or causes of action and you agree as far as possible under applicable law to voluntarily give up or waive any right that you may otherwise have to bring a legal action against your Instructor for personal injury or property damage.

To the extent that statute or case law does not prohibit release for negligence, this release is also for negligence on the part of the Instructor. If any portion of this release from liability shall be deemed by a Court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, then the remainder of this release from liability shall remain in full force and effect without the offending provision or provisions. By engaging the Instructor, Oonagh McDevitt, you acknowledge that you understand its content and that this release can only be amended with the prior written agreement of the Instructor and you.

This waiver and release shall be governed by the laws of Ireland and any dispute hereunder subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Ireland.
