Physical Fitness: Guidelines for Safe and Effective Exercise

This 32-page booklet, written by two leading authorities in Exercise Science, will benefit both fitness participants and professionals.

1. Benefits for fitness participants:

  • Provides instruction on important safety principles
  • Includes education on basic fitness concepts
  • Presented in a user-friendly format - easy, quick to read and understand

2. Benefits for fitness professionals:

  • Provides important information to review with new members/clients during Facility Orientations - a unique benefit to your facility
  • Helps minimize legal liability by carrying out your legal duty to provide proper instruction*
  • Promotes a "safety culture" in your facility

*How can this Fitness Booklet help minimize your legal liability?

The failure to provide proper instruction is one of the most common negligence claims that plaintiffs make when they file lawsuits against fitness facilities and exercise professionals. 

Case Examples:

Case #1: A plaintiff claimed that her personal fitness trainer failed to warn her about the risks of injury associated with her exercise routine (1). Fitness participants should be informed of the risks of exercise and how they can minimize those risks.

Case #2: An expert witness testified that the plaintiff’s cardiac arrest was likely due to the failure of the fitness staff to carry out their legal duty to orient/educate the plaintiff on the (a) importance of cool-down and (b) concept of blood pooling (2).

These important “safety” concepts along with many others are covered in this Fitness Booklet. By providing this booklet to your participants and reviewing it with them, it can help you create an effective defense, if ever needed, by providing evidence that you did not breach your duty to instruct your participants on important principles of fitness safety.
