What does your gym’s liability waiver mean?

If you joined a gym as part of your New Year’s resolution to lose weight and live healthier in 2014, you probably had to sign a liability waiver as part of the gym membership.  The paperwork you sign when you join a gym is a contract and it is enforceable even if you fail to read the entire contract. Most gyms include some type of liability waiver in each of their contracts ranging from a total waiver (waiving all liability) to a waiver of negligence (preventing members from suing for injuries sustained even if the gym or its employees are negligent).
