– Doors open at 2:00pm
Train - Heald Green location
Location: This WODproud event will be at Train Manchester's Heald Green location on Willstream House, Longstone Road, Wythenshawe, Manchester, M22 5LT. (It's close to the Manchester airport. Nearest train station is Heald Green, which is easily accessible from the Manchester Piccadilly train station and the Mal Maison hotel.)
Time and date: Saturday, April 6. We'll start things at 2:30p. Please arrive shortly after 2:00p to warm up and chat with people. (The gym has a class ending at 2:00p, so we don't want to disturb them.)
After WOD Food and Drinks: Lululemon is very generously providing food and drinks after the WOD. Plan to stick around to socialize, eat, drink, and be merry/gay.
Accommodation: You're on your own for accommodating. Several of us are going up on Friday and returning Sunday. Mal Maison's didn't extend their discount.
Transportation: Everyone is on their own to get to Manchester. Several of us booked return tickets for £80/each (going up Friday night and returning to London any time on Sunday). Or you could fly. Or hitchhike. We just can't deal with organizing transportation.
● Tickets are non-transferable.
● Tickets are non-refundable, however you may purchase Refund Protection from Bookitbee for £0.75. If you're unable to make the event and meet Bookitbee's terms for a refund, Bookitbee will refund your purchase and your donation to WODproud will remain. It's win/win if you think there's a chance you won't be able to make the WOD and are willing to pay for their protection.
● If you can't make the WOD, please let us know by emailing WODproud@gmail.com so we can let the next person on the waitlist in.
● These events raise money for LGBT charities. WODproud covers its expenses and the rest is donated to a different charity each month.
● We volunteer our time to put these events on and it takes quite a bit of time. We need to have these polices in place to minimize our workload and accommodate as many people as possible for these events.
● We ask the participants have at least three months experience with CrossFit. The movements aren't difficult and everything can be scaled, but we don't have time to teach people the lifts or skills before the WOD. This is for your safety.
====================== Note ======================
The waiver many of you have already signed is below.
By purchasing a ticket to participate in any WODproud event,
you are agreeing to the waiver below.
I agree to participate in one or more physical fitness event(s) or class(es) sponsored by Amir Ghomshei, Zachary Ryon, and/or WODproud (hereinafter collectively referred to as WODproud) which may include, but not necessarily be limited to, Group Classes, Outdoor Activities, Personal Coaching, Fitness Retreats/Trips and/or training of any kind in an open/outdoors space or by an affiliate, subsidiary, or partnership of WODproud.
WODproud made me fully aware that the fitness events/classes which WODproud offers and in which I desire to participate are of a nature and kind that are extremely strenuous and can/may push me to the limits of my physical abilities. I, the undersigned, recognise and understand that the events/classes are not without varying degrees of risk which may include, but are not limited to the following:
a) injury to the musculoskeletal and/or cardio respiratory systems which can result in serious injury or death,
b) injury or death due to negligence on the part of myself, my training partner, or other people around me,
c) injury or death due to improper use or failure of equipment, or injury or death due to a medical condition, whether known or unknown by me,
d) injury or death due to lack of ability of swimming on open waters.
I willingly assume full responsibility for any and all risks that I am exposing myself to as a result of my participation in the WODproud events/classes and accept full responsibility for any injury or death that may result from participation in any activity, class, or physical fitness program. I hereby certify that I know of no medical problems that would increase my risk of illness and injury as a result of participation in a fitness program designed by WODproud and performed in open/outdoors space, affiliate, subsidiary, or partnership of WODproud.
WODproud informed me that there exists the possibility of adverse physical changes during an exercise program, and I fully understand the same. WODproud informed me that these changes could include abnormal blood pressure, fainting, disorder of heart rhythm, stroke, and in very rare instances, heart attack, or even death, and I fully understand the same. With my full understanding of the above information, I agree to assume any and all risk associated with my participation in WODproud fitness events/classes.
I accept that if I bring any personal property onto the premises where any event/class sponsored by WODproud is held (open/outdoors space or in an affiliate, subsidiary or partnership of WODproud) I do so at my sole risk. It is hereby understood that WODproud is not responsible in any way for the safekeeping of, damage to or loss of any personal property which I may bring onto the premises of WODproud, including but not limited to, losses due to theft, damage, or car (or other vehicle) accident.
In full consideration of the above mentioned risks and hazards and in full consideration of the fact that I am willingly and voluntarily participating in the activities made available by WODproud, and with my full understanding of all of the above, I hereby waive, release, remise and discharge WODproud and its agents, officers, principals, employees, partners, and volunteers, of any and all liability, claims, demands, actions or rights of action, or damages of any kind related to, arising from, or in any way connected with, my participation in WODproud fitness events/classes, including those allegedly attributed to the negligent acts or omissions of the above mentioned parties.
This agreement shall be binding upon me, my successors, representatives, heirs, executors, assigns, or transferees. If any portion of this agreement is held invalid, I agree that the remainder of the agreement shall remain in full legal force and effect.
I recognize that there is risk involved in the types of activities offered by WODproud. Therefore, I accept financial responsibility for any injury that I or the participant may cause either to him/herself or to any other participant due to his/her negligence. Should the above-mentioned parties, or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur solicitor’s fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to reimburse them for such fees and costs. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless WODproud, their principals, agents, employees, partners and volunteers from liability for the injury or death of any person(s) and damage to property that may result from my negligent or intentional act or omission while participating in activities offered by WODproud.
I acknowledge that WODproud its agents, officers, principals, employees, partners and volunteers may from time to time take picture(s), film, video and/or likeness of its members for advertising purposes. In the event that I choose not to participate in such advertising I accept that it is my responsibility to advise the person taking the pictures/film/video not to include me directly. I accept that whilst all efforts will be made to honour my request it may be unavoidable that I will feature in the background of said images.
I have fully read and fully understand the foregoing assumption of risk, and release of liability and I understand that by signing it obligates me to indemnify the parties named for any liability for injury or death of any person and damage to property caused by my negligent or intentional act or omission.
