You, the participant (“Participant”), agree that by participating in the challenge or any  event sponsored by, administered by, or hosted by Lifetime Wellness Challenge, Inc.  (“Lifetime Wellness”) that you will abide by and agree to the following provisions, restrictions, and waivers.

   

     1.       First-time Participants must receive a thorough and complete health and physical examination from a  U.S. licensed health care provider or doctor (“Care Provider”) as to the Participant’s overall health and ability to participate in the challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.  (Go talk to your doctor, tell him what we do – we bet he’ll like us!)

     2.       First-time Participants must not participate in any way in any challenge or event sponsored by Lifetime Wellness if s/he has not been seen by her/his Care Provider and also has not been specifically approved by her/his Care Provider to participate in the challenge sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.  (Our lawyer’s not going to let you compete if you aren’t checked out by your doctor – so again, go talk to your doctor!)

     3.       If Participant has previously participated in a challenge or event sponsored by Lifetime Wellness, Participant must receive a new or additional thorough and complete health and physical examination from  her/his Care Provider  as to the Participant’s overall health and ability to participate in the challenge or event sponsored by Lifetime Wellness on at least an annual basis and shall not participate in any way in any challenge or event sponsored by Lifetime Wellness if s/he has not been seen by her/his Care Provider and also has not been specifically approved by her/his Care Provider to participate in the challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.  (We REALLY want to stress how important it is that you don’t die on our watch – the point of the competition is to get you healthy, NOT kill you off!  And we love repeat participants!)

     4.       If at any time during the challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness the Participant begins to feel physically unwell or has any reason or cause to believe that s/he has sustained injury or physical harm or is at-risk to suffer injury or physical harm, the Participant must immediately cease participation in the challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness until s/he has been seen by her/his Care Provider and has been specifically approved to resume participation in the challenge or event.  (If anything we ask you to do makes you sick or uncomfortable, for the love of Pete, please STOP doing it!  Don’t try to use this as an excuse to stop exercising.  We will find a way to keep you moving – we are firm believers that “what doesn’t kill you makes you STRONGER!”)

     5.       Neither Lifetime Wellness nor any of its directors, stockholders, agents, or employees are certified exercise trainers, dieticians, physical therapists, doctors, or other health care providers.  Participants are encouraged to consult with their own certified and/or licensed specialists as to the Participant’s own specific medical, nutritional, and physical needs and limitations.   (While we do our best to sound smart, we don’t have degrees.  We will not be offended if you choose to get a second opinion!)

     6.       If there is any cessation by the Participant in any challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness, whether voluntary or involuntary and whether or not the cessation was merited by the Participant’s health, Participant shall not be entitled to any compensation or refund from Lifetime Wellness and shall be disqualified from finishing the existing challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness and may be barred or disqualified from participating in future challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.  (If you quit, we will not refund your money.  If we kick you out of the challenge, we will not refund your money, and we have the right to kick you to the curb FOR.EV.ER!  (We have yet to banish anyone – do not be the first!)

     7.       Lifetime Wellness is not responsible and cannot be held responsible for any injury, illness, disability, or death of any Participant as a result of their participation in any challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.  Participant and her/his family, heirs, agents, representatives, devisees, legatees, employers, and beneficiaries, specifically agree to hold Lifetime Wellness harmless for any injury, illness, disability, or death of the Participant as a result of her/his participation in any challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.  (You, and any you know, cannot sue us if you die while participating in our challenge.  Believe me, this isn’t a “sole survivor” kind of challenge.  Our goal is health, not death, but our lawyer insists we include this precaution!!)

     8.       Lifetime Wellness will make all reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy of the tabulation or calculation of the points earned by each team or individual participant participating in the challenge or event or to calculate any other indices or figures.  However, the accuracy of the points, tabulations, or other indices for each event or challenge necessarily depends upon the truthfulness of the participants and the accuracy or precision of the various scales and other devices used by the participants, therefore the final points or factors determinative of a winner for each challenge or event cannot be certified by Lifetime Wellness as completely accurate.

Lifetime Wellness is not responsible for any errors in the calculation of points for any particular challenge or event and Participant specifically agrees to hold Lifetime Wellness harmless for any error which may occur in the determination of a winner of any challenge or event.  (We do our best to add and subtract correctly, but we are human and it is POSSIBLE that we could screw up.  Unfortunately, you can’t sue us for bad math AND we can’t guarantee that the other participants aren’t lying about their points!)

     9.       Lifetime Wellness is not responsible for any errors or loss which may occur in the distribution of any monies or other prizes after the money or prize is distributed to the team captain or other person primarily responsible for any team participating in any challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.   Participant specifically agrees to hold Lifetime Wellness harmless for any error or loss which may occur after the money or prize is distributed to the team captain or other person primarily responsible for any team participating in any challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.  (We are not responsible for verifying that your team captain distributes prize money fairly.  You really don’t have to worry about this one though, cause we almost always pay you directly!!)

     10.   Participant, by participating in the challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness and/or by receiving password only access to the website and materials compiled or produced by Lifetime Wellness, specifically agrees that s/he will not thereafter directly or indirectly engage in any business or develop any website, program, digital media, book, or media application which competes with Lifetime Wellness nor which is based upon or utilizes the concepts, ideas, plans, and methods of Lifetime Wellness.    ("We give you permission to use our material for the purposes of this challenge, but if you try to use it on your own, we will hunt you down!!!  If you enjoyed the challenge, come on back and invite your friends!!") 

     11.   Participant, by participating in the challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness or by receiving password only access to the website and materials compiled or produced by Lifetime Wellness, specifically agrees that s/he will not thereafter share, distribute, nor sell any printed materials owned by or developed by Lifetime Wellness whether or not such use is for profit or other material gain.  (We hope you use our website and challenge materials freely while competing in the challenge, but we do NOT want you to take our stuff and use it for your own purposes.  We put A LOT of time into developing and improving this challenge and don’t want our work to be stolen.  What we DO want is for you to love it so much that you just keep coming back and spreading the word to your family and friends!!  Please don’t call our bluff on this one.)

     12.   Lifetime Wellness and all of its directors, stockholders, agents, or employees and their immediate family members are allowed to participate in any challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.  However, none of the directors, stockholders, agents, or employees of Lifetime Wellness and their immediate family members may receive or obtain any monetary nor any tangible property benefit nor compensation from participation in any challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.  (We, and any future employees, are free to compete in the challenges, but will remain penniless even if we pull off a big WIN.)

     13.   Lifetime Wellness does not guarantee any specific health result nor body measurement reduction/improvement as a result of participation in any challenge or event sponsored or hosted by Lifetime Wellness.  (We do not guarantee that you will look like a super model at the end of the challenge – we wish!  The end results really depend on YOUR hard work and dedication to the rules of the challenge.)

     14.   Participant and her/his family, heirs, agents, representatives, devisees, legatees, employers, and beneficiaries shall be those of the State of Idaho agree that all disputes or claims against Lifetime Wellness shall be settled through binding arbitration which shall occur in the State of Idaho and which shall use an Idaho-based arbitrator.  If no binding arbitration shall be available or if a court of competent jurisdiction determines that a grievance or claim should be instead litigated outside of arbitration, any and all claims of Participant and her/his family, heirs, agents, representatives, devisees, legatees, employers, and beneficiaries shall be filed in courts located in Idaho.  The laws governing this agreement and any dispute between Lifetime Wellness and Participant or her/his family, heirs, agents, representatives, devisees, legatees, employers, and beneficiaries shall be those of the State of Idaho.  (If you’re planning to sue us, ya gotta do it in Idaho!  However, we would really prefer that you NOT sue us at all.)

       14.   I understand that any photographs/videos become the property of Lifetime Wellness Challenge, Inc. and may appear in publicity or brochures marketing Lifetime Wellness Challenge programs and facilities, if submitted.  I understand that there are no rights granted to me to inspect or approve photographs/video to publication.  (We love it when you send us photos and videos of your progress!  We may use them to spread the word about LWC.)

     15.   If any provision of the Agreement shall be held or determined to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable.  (If a legal authority says one of these items isn’t legal, the rest of the document still is!)
