There are certain risks associated with participating in physical activity. These risks include environmental factors. You should be aware of those risks and seek to control the factors that increase the risk of injury. Proper hydration, appropriate clothing, realistic program progression, and being educated in injury recognition are examples of steps that can be taken to safely implement a personal fitness program.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Review Chapter 7, “Creating Your Total Fitness & Wellness Plan.” Pay particular attention to the different types of environmental factors and how they might negatively impact physical activity.
Consider environmental factors that might directly impact the implementation of your personal fitness program and strategies for overcoming those factors.

As lifestyles become more sedentary, the risk of injury and chronic pain increases. For example, individuals who spend their day working at a desk frequently suffer from weak abdominal and back muscles, and poor flexibility of the lower back and hamstring muscles. This places them at higher risk of back pain. In Canada, Finland, and the United States musculoskeletal disorders (especially back pain) are the number one type of work disability (Punnett et al., 2005). Fortunately, exercise can play an important role in preventing back pain and rehabilitating some back problems.
At the opposite extreme, physical activity itself increases the risk of injury. The major risks and causes of injury from physical activity include improper training techniques, poor program design, alignment abnormalities in the legs and feet, overtraining, and not enough rest. It is important to be aware of the main causes of back pain and other injuries in order to design a safe and effective fitness program.
