An injury is Not something I wish happen to you, yet at anytime (even sitting at your computer) you could have an accident. Working out and moving about the gym, enjoying yourself, training to meet your goals, having a blast, a hidden occurrence waiting to happen. If you don’t want to get hurt in any way, you’ll just have to stay home away from it all. But even at your place of comfort injury can lurk around every corner. No need to freak out, with a little caution, most accidents can be avoided. Is there a chance you could get seriously injured in a gym? Definitely. Can it be avoided? Certainly.
Sports injuries are described as either Contact (two athletes hitting each other or an object hitting an athlete) or Non-Contact (athlete is injured without direct contact with another athlete or object). When designing (my job and commit to you) an exercise program the needs of the client must be considered. The risk of injury can be diminished through needs analysis, proper programming specific to the client’s goals and needs, and periodization of training programs (this is what I do), but sometimes, Sometimes, injury is unavoidable. Proper form and technique is required when placing loads on the body. Starting with correct posture and movement training will surely eliminate causes but its up to you to be fully aware of your body position and others around you. Oh yes!! People are clumsy. And don’t be checking out the opposite sex while training especially squatting.
