CEU Webinar | Exercise Prescriptions: Linking Safety and Business Success


Designing and delivering a reasonably safe exercise prescription is a general legal duty of exercise professionals, but what does “reasonably safe” mean?

This webinar will describe factors that courts use to determine a reasonably safe exercise program as well as the exercise professional’s standard of care. Strategies that can be developed and implemented by exercise professionals will be presented to demonstrate the link between safety and business success.

Continuing Education: Product option “Webinar + CEU Quiz” provides one (1) CEU toward renewal of any MedFit Classroom fitness specialization.
