Precaution to ensure a healthy start
Before beginning or increasing physical activity, you should take some precautions to ensure a healthy start.
- To avoid soreness and injury, start out slowly and gradually build up to the desired amount to give your body time to adjust.
- People suffering from such chronic health problems as heart disease, diabetes, asthma or obesity, should first consult your doctor before increasing your level of physical activity.
- Prior permission of doctors is required before starting vigorous exercise programs.
