Read Before You Show Up
The fitness instructor (Aiyo A. Jones) is a licensed ZUMBA fitness instructor and certified group fitness instructor.
The Brooks Avenue Church of Christ does not support or endorse these classes. The church is graciously allowing us to use its facility to provide these classes to the community. However, the church does not assume any liability for whatever damages that may occur during these times of our classes. This means that anything that happens to a participant in the gymnasium or anywhere on the church premises is not the responsibility of the church.
Neither the church nor NutritionFit NC are responsible for any stolen items. We do not provide any lockers, so keep your items where you could see them. Also, neither of us are responsible for any property damages such as scratches on your car, clothes getting ripped, etc.
These classes are open to the community. Although they are conducted in a church building, anybody of any religious belief (or lack of), sexual preference, political affiliation, gender, etc., are welcome. (On a side note, anybody is welcome to attend services at the Brooks Avenue Church of Christ period without feeling like an "outcast.")
It is YOUR responsibility to consult your own primary healthcare provider about participating in these fitness classes. We do not have any medical persons on site should an emergency happen.
You take these classes at your own risk. All physical fitness activities could cause injury no matter how careful you think you are. It's up to you to modify any moves if necessary. If there is a certain move or intensity you don't feel comfortable with, MODIFY it! If the class intensity becomes too much, either take it easy or discontinue any further participation in the class.
These classes are intense! The energy shown by the instructor and the energy of your fellow participants could encourage you to work harder than you SHOULD. If you have any medical condition that would be aggravated by intense exercises, then it's up to YOU to use your BEST judgment and to consult your own primary healthcare provider.
The floors are smooth and non-carpeted. This is good in that it helps you to move easier. However, the biggest downfall is that if you sweat a lot or if other people around you sweat a lot, then you could slip and fall. Fortunately, we don't have classes where people are falling all over the place! But this is something to keep in mind. We always inspect the exercise area before classes start to make sure there are no wet spots. But during class, it is YOUR responsibility to make sure that your area is clean enough to work on.
The music is loud. Some individuals may have very sensitive eardrums, especially those of the senior citizen population. So, bring ear plugs if you need to! Young children who accompany their parents/guardians are also sensitive to loud music -- so keep that in mind when you bring your child to class with you.
Speaking of children, they must ALWAYS be supervised by a parent or guardian. They are not allowed to play outside the gym by themselves. We are not responsible if your children get hurt or lost.
The lights are dimmed. No, it's not completely dark in class, but if you have poor eye sight, take caution.
These classes would challenge your speed, agility, strength, and flexibility. Once again, modify for your own comfort and safety.
This disclaimer is NOT to scare you, but to let you understand that if you come to class, you come at your own risk. Or in other words, YOU are responsible for YOUR well-being. So, if you understand this, then see you at the next class!
