Risk Factor Notice

Participants must be cleared of any risk factors associated with physical activity prior to meeting with an instructor. If a participant is identified as high risk, the participant must provide the instructor with a signed physician's medical release form stating that the participant has been cleared to engage in sessions.

Cancellation Policy

Except in the event of an emergency, a minimum of 24 hours notice is required for the cancellation of an Outreach Service. Failure to cancel within 24 hours or failure to show up for a session will result in a forfeit of the session. Exceptions will only be made in the case of a medical emergency accompanied by a doctor's note. If there should be a discrepancy, the decision will be determined by the Assistant Director of Fitness Programs. If a participant is unable to reach their instructor, they may contact the Assistant Director of Fitness and Wellness, Dr. Anatolia Vick-Kregel, av82@rice.edu or Andrew Wright, aw112@rice.edu.
