Court: Waiver protects NJ gym with faulty bike

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - August 5, 2010

Gina Stelluti signed a liability waiver before joining Powerhouse Gym in Brick.

The form says members assume all risks of negligence on the part of Powerhouse, including injury from malfunctioning equipment.

The same day, Stelluti participated in a spinning class. When she stood on one of the bikes, the adjustable handlebars dislodged and she fell while her feet remained strapped into the pedals.

She suffered beck and back strain injuries and a cracked tooth.
