Injuries are unfortunately an unavoidable part of life and can actually be a common occurrence in physical activity due to the improper use of equipment or an accident. While accidents happen, there are several ways to help prevent injury:

  1. Take the time to warm-up. Ideally, you should warm up for at least 10 minutes (the older and more athletic you are, the more time you should spend on warming up).
  2. Invest in a pair of good shoes. Find shoes that are designed to provide special support and flexibility for physical activity.
  3. Take your time. It’s imperative that you focus and pay attention to your body’s movements, particularly the form and technique in which you perform your exercises. Distractions can lead to uncontrolled and unplanned movements, which often lead to injury.

For more tips on injury prevention, talk to your trainer.
