The American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association have strongly recommended that every health/fitness facility be prepared for exercise emergencies and train their employees to respond promptly and effectively in such situations. Initially, Emergency Readiness for Health/Fitness Facilities briefly summarizes published evidence on risks for serious adverse events with exercising adults who have different cardiovascular health characteristics. Then, the case is made that health/fitness facilities appear to be poorly prepared for these problems, despite the existence of important professional guidelines and lawsuits related to alleged failures in emergency response in health/fitness settings. The DVD concludes with a review of key elements of an appropriate emergency plan and how to maintain response readiness for major exercise emergencies.

Among the topics covered:
  • Risks of serious emergencies in exercising adults
  • Health clubs are often unprepared
  • Standards of care and professional guidelines
  • Personal injury case law and changing public expectations for emergency response
  • Steps to organize, prepare, and maintain readiness
