Personal Training aGreement
Congratulations on your decision to improve your health, well-being and lifestyle by participating in a professional exercise programme through MD Fitness at Anytime Fitness provided by Danny Burt.
With the help of MD Fitness, you will greatly improve your ability to accomplish your training goals faster, safer and correctly with maximum benefits. The knowledge shared during our training sessions can be used by you over a lifetime.
In order to gain the full benefit and maximise your progress with MD fitness, it will be necessary for you to follow programme guidelines during personal training sessions and if applicable, unsupervised training days from our supplied programme. Remember, a combination of exercise and healthy eating is equally important for a successful journey. In order to achieve maximum benefits, it is recommended that 2 sessions per week with MD Fitness be subscribed to. However, due to scheduling conflicts and financial considerations, combinations of supervised and unsupervised workouts are possible. Of course, the choice is yours.
