Liability Waiver

At Elements Pole Aerial Fitness we want to make sure your visit to the studio is as safe as it can be. During your visit to the studio it is a requirement that you agree to and comply with the following conditions.

Elements Pole Aerial Fitness Lawnton Pty Ltd (ABN 166 273 582 03 ) (“Elements Pole Aerial Fitness Lawnton Pty Ltd”, “Elements”, “Studio”, “we”, “us”, “our”) have adopted these Terms and Conditions of class participation which applies to all dance classes, courses, memberships and workshops booked by clients (“you”) at Elements Pole Aerial Fitness Lawnton Pty Ltd (856 Gympie Road, Lawnton QLD 4501).

“Elements” recommends that you consult with a medical or health professional whenever you start any new form of exercise, including pole dancing and aerial activities. Workouts can be strenuous on the body, particularly for ligaments and joints, so if you have had or have any existing injuries that may be of concern, we strongly encourage you to obtain medical advice and clearance for activity that may place pressure and tension on your injured region. This is especially important if you have a weakened joint structure due to past dislocation or if you are recovering from surgery involving your ligaments and/or tendons. Lower back, shoulder, wrist and knee injuries tend to be most commonly aggravated by this type of exercise.
