The Exercise-Reports.com official Disclaimer will be posted soon. But, while the site is under construction, we would still like to get out some important points about exercise and safety.

Exercise is good for most people, but exercise may not be good for everyone, especially if an individual has an underlying, undetected or ignored, health problem. Exercising when you are not prepared properly, or exercising excessively can cause nagging injuries, serious injuries or even death.

See a Physician, First
To avoid possible harm from physical exercise, medical and fitness experts recommend that a person see a physician for consultation before starting an exercise program — even if no apparent health problems exist.

Don’t Ignore Pain or Other Symptoms
You need to see a physician if you experience pain, numbness, dizziness, weakness, fatigue; or if you actually see or feel something (to the touch) out of the ordinary. Beware that even ‘back pain’ that you ‘live with’ could be a serious problem that is developing and becoming life threatening. Only a physician can rule out and/or treat serious, even fatal conditions.

Websites Communicate General Information to All People
Websites don’t publish specific information that is ideally fit for all individuals. You may have a specific anatomical feature that is abnormal compared to the “normal” person that is considered in published exercise instruction, or general descriptions of human motion. You should never take a website communication as the FINAL WORD. The information is general information. It is your duty to apply knowledge to understand your specific conditions and goals and follow your own judgment — with the help of physicians, physical therapists, coaches, athletic trainers, and personal trainers.
