If at any time I/my child believe that conditions are unsafe or that I/my child am/is unable to participate due to my/their physical or medical conditions, I/my child will immediately discontinue participation. I/My child agree(s) to immediately stop performing any activity if I/they feel any pain, dizziness, light- headedness, or any other symptoms, and to immediately report those symptoms to the instructor.
