REASONABLENESS OF RESTRICTIONS. i.
Private Trainer has carefully read and considered the above Paragraphs and, having done so, agrees that the restrictions set forth in those Paragraphs, including, but not limited to, the time period and scope of restriction are fair and reasonable and are reasonably required for the protection of the legitimate business interests of the Stable.
Private Trainer’s experience and capabilities are such that the restrictive covenants set forth above will not prevent Private Trainer from earning an adequate livelihood if such provisions are specifically enforced against Private Trainer.
In the event that any of the above provisions of or any parts or sub-parts thereof shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions, parts or sub-parts thereof shall nevertheless continue to be valid and enforceable as though the invalid or unenforceable provisions, parts or sub-parts had not been included therein, without regard to the resultant grammatical correctness of the remaining provisions, parts, or sub-parts.
In the event that the time period or scope of restriction set forth above are declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to exceed the maximum restrictiveness such court deems reasonable and enforceable, it is the parties’ express intention that the time period, geographical area, or scope of restriction deemed reasonable and enforceable by the court shall become and thereafter be the maximum restriction in such regard, and the restriction shall remain enforceable to the fullest extent deemed reasonable by such court.
Any such court is also hereby expressly authorized and directed by the parties to enforce any otherwise invalid or unenforceable provision, part, or sub-part of this Agreement in part, to a degree, or otherwise in a manner and to the extent that renders the provision, part, or sub-part valid and enforceable.
In the event of a breach or threatened breach by Private Trainer of any of the above provision, the Stable, in addition to, and not in limitation of, any other rights, remedies, or damages available at law or in equity, shall be entitled to obtain (without the necessity of posting a bond) a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, and permanent injunction, or specific performance, in order to prevent or restrain any such breach by Private Trainer or any persons within Private Trainer’s control or any persons directly or indirectly acting for or with Private Trainer.
Private Trainer acknowledges that in the event of any breach by Private Trainer of the covenants set forth in this NPHH1:35790.10-TBF-(APE) 029888-00015 Agreement, the Stable will suffer immediate and irreparable harm for which the remedy of monetary damages alone will be inadequate.
For purposes of injunctive or similar equitable relief, the time periods of restrictions set forth above shall be extended by a period of time equal to the period of time during which Private Trainer shall have been violating this Agreement.
Private Trainer agrees that if Private Trainer shall violate any of Private Trainer’s covenants or agreements contained herein, the Stable shall be entitled to: (1) an accounting and repayment of all profits, compensation, commissions, remuneration, or other benefits that Private Trainer directly or indirectly realized and/or may realize as a result of, growing out of, or in connection with, any such violation; (2) recover lost profits or other actual damages incurred by the Stable or its affiliates as a result of any such violation; (3) any injunctive or other equitable relief to which the Stable is or may be entitled at law, in equity, or under this Agreement; (4) set off or recoup against payments due to Private Trainer by the Stable (to the fullest extent permitted by law); and (5) exercise its other rights respecting a breach of this Agreement.
