Disclaimer

OK, I know it’s odd to have this page on a blog.  But I live in LaLa-Land.  Where people don’t talk they sue.  So I figured I should establish a few things that can’t be covered in etiquette.

I am a fitness coach, not a trainer and definitely not a doctor

Although I assume that everyone will understand that the information on this blog is intended for general knowledge and health, and to make you want to email and hire me immediately :), I see big fancy health gurus have disclaimers …. So why not:

1. The information on this blog is not intended for the treatment or prevention of disease, nor as a substitute for medical treatment. Frankly, you don’t want it to either. Since this blog can be viewed by any person on the planet, claiming that my info will guarantee results, without any form of evaluation of you as an individual on my part, would be pretty arrogant.  Even if you contact me via email or post a comment to the blog, that does not give rise to an automatic coach-client relationship either.

2. Don’t send me any confidential information until I expressly agree to have a confidential coaching relationship with you. After all, I might have a conflict of interest (given my size of operation, that is pretty unlikely, but you never know for sure). So be smart and safe and keep it confidential until I say it’s ok to send stuff to me.

3. The sites that I link to are not under my control. Those sites are responsible for the content of those sites. The sun, the moon, the weather, and the planet are not under my control either. I’m working on the planet thing, but don’t hold your breath.   So please don’t try to make me responsible for other sites, bad weather, global warming, Palin or any malady that befalls you.

4. I am a some what normal person, which means any programs outlined herein should not be adopted without consultation with your health professional.  If I am already your personal health professional, why are you reading my disclaimer?  You already know all this.  If you do not have a personal health professional, I recommend finding one.  Preferably one with a personality, who loves doing this as their chosen profession.  Not someone who is doing this until they are discovered as an actor, singer, actress, producer, writer, director, etc.   This may be harder to do if you live in LA.

5. The world is an ever-changing place, which means that content and methods can become outdated quickly. While I hope to avoid having outdated material on my blog by sticking to universal principles, I can’t guarantee that everything I have on here is timely. (Only a ‘internet fitness guru’ would put out information to impress you and then say “don’t rely on it.” And while I don’t want to come across like other internet fitness sites, I don’t want to have to go back and edit, correct, update every blog, every night either.)

6. Use of any programs or info is at the sole choice and risk of the reader.  The author is neither responsible nor liable for any harm or injury resulting from any program, nutritional info, or the use of exercises described herein on this blog.  Although I am not going to be throwing anything out there crazy like drink your own urine; it’s best to consider for yourselves what ideas here you should apply.

So there it is. We’ve done the legalese thing. Aren’t you glad we got that out of the way. Now back to the educating and enjoying of a healthy life.
