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