I hope you had a professional in insurance defense look at your release and waivers. The problems inherent in your business if you are doing nutrition, excercise, don't necessarily review doctor reports, especially if you don't have a degree in either are daunting. Insurance, being a P.C. or Corporation are other things to discuss with the attorney.
