Testimonials from Professionals and Professors

“Your book is fantastic! One of the best ones I have come across related to risk management in the health and fitness industry in my 25 years as an Exercise Physiologist.”


Jeff Roberts, M.S.

Manager, Cardiac Health Center, Evergreen Health Care

Kirkland, WA

“This book has been the next best thing to taking a course in risk management. The case law that is presented has been extremely beneficial to me as a coordinator of fitness programs and supervisor of fitness staff.  Reviewing the cases with my staff drives home the importance of a team approach to minimizing risks in our facility.”


Anne Friesel, M.Ed., ACSM-HFS

Former Fitness Coordinator, Campus Recreation, University of South Florida

Tampa, FL

“This book is, by far, the best risk management book for the health and fitness professional. It addresses duty, liability, and the legal system in such a way that a non-lawyer can easily understand these important concepts. Great job by the three authors.”

Risk Management Consultant, Sport Risk Consulting

"Highly credible authors and timely and relevant material in a well-organized and well written text. This book is invaluable to both students and practitioners who are working and studying in the area of health and fitness."

“Your text is fantastic! I wish your text was out from 2003-2006, when I taught an undergraduate course in “the application of tort law to physical activity” to exercise science majors. I would have used it.”
