How useful/effective are disclaimers in protecting a person from a claim for injury. They seem to state the obvious? I'm working on a hobby project with a professional fitness coach and we are launching some vids just after xmas for the January get fit boom. We were going to add the following:
This video is provided for general information only and should not be treated as a substitute for professional supervision or advice. Before starting any exercise regime you should consider consulting a qualified fitness or sports adviser to ensure the regime is suitable for you and your own doctor if you have a medical condition, are taking medication or have related concerns. We cannot be held responsible for any injuries which may occur as a result of these exercises. No information provided should be used to prevent, treat or diagnose medical conditions of any kind. Always make sure you are warm before stretching.
Is there any length of time or font size I need to go for - we are going with a small but readable font with a 6 second segment to allow people to read it. It seems obvious to me that a person presenting blind on a video cannot know if the person following is doing it right or even able to do it safely?
My suggestions are not legal advice
