INFORMED CONSENT

The aims of Spin City Exeter classes are to improve cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, self-confidence, grace and style. Pole dance classes include spins and inverts on the pole, floor work, transitions between moves and strength exercises.

All classes begin with a warm up and finish with a full cool down, incorporating stretches to improve flexibility.

Please notify the instructor before the class if you have any current injuries, illnesses or medical conditions, or if you think you will be unable to take part in some parts of the class – participation is completely voluntary. All information given to the instructor is private and confidential under data protection legislation. Please feel free to ask the instructor questions during the class, particularly if you do not fully understand something being demonstrated.

As with all forms of exercise, aerial fitness carries an element of risk and you may experience some bruising, and feel achy for a few days after the class. The classes are designed to minimise this risk, and with continued practice your body will become more conditioned and the side effects will reduce. If you experience excessive pain or discomfort during the class please notify your instructor immediately.
