The New Year Means More Gym Accidents | FAST HELPThe New Year tends to kick off with families and individuals making resolutions to improve their health through diet and exercise. January serves as the most popular month for new exercise club memberships and with this comes an increase in gym accidents.

Gym Accidents and Injuries

Each gym is legally responsible for providing an environment to members that is safe, clean, and well-maintained. Most gyms provide a series of weight and cardio machines that, if not maintained properly, have the potential to cause serious injuries. Gym owners and operators are responsible for installing processes that help prevent accident injuries from occurring like routinely reviewing the integrity of their equipment. Most gym accidents are caused by:

  • Defective equipment
  • Limited focus on maintaining equipment
  • Poor training instructions
  • Falls
  • Improper use of equipment
