Asked on Mar 29, 2021

Should I have my gym members sign a separate liability waiver or is it fine to put language in my membership agreement?

I run in gym in New Jersey and currently have a clause in my membership agreement that covers our liability. I want to understand if that is enough or if I should have a separate document for my members to sign.

Yes. If worded correctly, a liability waiver is effective. Note that a few states do not allow liability waivers and others have strict requirements for their enforceability.
