Gentle Strength Intake Form

I'm so excited to have you join a Gentle Strength program. We are going to have a lot of fun getting strong together! To help me support you through movement and programming variations, please answer the questions in this form to let me know a little more about any specific needs you may have. Please also ensure that you have agreed to the liability waiver and class policies.

Have you been diagnosed with low bone density? (Oestoperosis or Oesteopenia)
Have you been pregnant or given birth in the past two years?

Program Agreements

1. We are here to move our bodies out of love and respect in a safe and diet-culture-free zone. Avoid commenting on anyone's physical appearance, including your own. Avoid talking about diets and weight loss (your own dietary choices and goals are valid and personal, just be mindful of what you bring into the space and how it may impact others).

2. There is always a movement option that will work for you, and it is my job as a trainer to help you find it. If the options that I have demonstrated aren't feeling right, please practice speaking up and asking me for something different. 

3. You control the intensity. This program is designed to meet people at a wide range of experience levels, which means that I will frequently include more challenging movement options and I will give everyone opportunities to push themselves to progressively add more load or volume as we move through the program. However, you always get to decide what you need and how much you want to push each day. I cannot know exactly how your body and mind are feeling. Trust yourself, rest as needed, and push through when you feel up to it. I will not question your decisions.
