These are also “dangerous recreational activities” as defined in that section, because the use of the Falsegrip Gym and participation in Falsegrip’s Activities each involve significant risks of physical harm.

Such injury, loss, damage or death may occur while I am engaging in physical exercise and/or using Falsegrip’s equipment as part of participation in Falsegrip’s Activities, including group activities or classes. This can occur as a result of any action by Me including, but not limited to, walking, jumping, running, skipping, hopping, lifting, gymnastics, rope climbs, strenuous bodyweight exercises and other high exertion activities, rowing, operating equipment, using weights, rings, resistance bands and other exercise equipment, sit ups, push ups and any other weight bearing exercises, bending, squatting, lunging, slipping and falling. I may also suffer such injury loss or damage or death as a result of my partner or another person’s use of the Falsegrip Gym or participation in Falsegrip Activities, for example where another person may drop or strike me with a piece of gym equipment such as weights, or where such a person may push pull or hit me, or by interfering with My person or My use of the Falsegrip Gym in some other way. Lastly, I may also suffer loss because of My personal property on the premises being stolen, lost, damaged or destroyed.
