Personal Training Request
Information Confidentiality
The Columbia University Personal Training Program classes provide vigorous recreational exercise; prior exercise is presumed. If you are new to exercise or have any doubts as to your readiness to participate in an activity, you should consult your physician, the Program Director and/or your trainer. Like any activity, exercise has its risks. While trainers are intent upon preventing and minimizing the chances of these problems occurring, primary responsibility for your safe participation remains with you. Once in a session, if you experience pain, discomfort, or anxiety, stop exercising and consult with your trainer or Program Director. Any questions which may have occurred to me have been answered to my satisfaction. I understand that all information collected regarding my participation in this program will be held in strict confidence by the Physical Education staff.
