Health Warning Note:  Our recommendations do not replace the advice of your health care professional and should not be confused with the personal medical advice you get from your physician. When you engage in physical activities, you are stressing your body ("overloading") to produce an increase in your fitness level. These activities involve some risk for anyone - the possibility of injury, heart attack, etc., but pose a special risk for people who have risk factors for disease such as high blood cholesterol or triglyceride levels, previous injury, are taking medications that affect heart rate, blood pressure, mental alertness, mask pain, or are overweight, smoke or are substance abusers. There are very specific guidelines for any person considering beginning an exercise program, especially if you have any of these existing conditions, and we suggest that you follow them. Increasing your fitness through an exercise and nutrition program will very likely have positive and long-lasting effects upon your physical and mental well-being. But these benefits only last as long as you keep up your program and avoid injury to your body. Here are some of the health considerations you related in the survey.
