Stay Safe

Regular physical activity is vital for good physical, social and emotional health. While there is a risk of injury with any type of physical activity, the benefits of staying active far outweigh the risks. 

 
You can reduce your risk of exercise injury by: 

  • wearing the right shoes 
  • using the correct equipment 
  • drinking water and staying hydrated 
  • warming up and stretching properly 
  • being aware of your surroundings – always exercise and compete in a safe and level area clear of any obstacles or items 
  • maintaining social distancing rules (stay at least six feet away from others) 

  
Stop exercising and seek medical help if you experience symptoms such as: 

  • discomfort or pain 
  • chest pain or other pain that could indicate a heart attack, including pain in the neck and jaw, pain travelling down the arm or pain between the shoulder blades 
  • shortness of breath 
  • a rapid or irregular heartbeat
