Feel the pain! 37% injured... by keep-fit
MORE than a third of people who take up exercise in the New Year quit after suffering an injury, a new study reveals.
Of the 37 per cent of people who end up hurt, more than half don’t even make it past the first week. The College of Podiatry, which quizzed 2,000 Britons, says knees, feet and muscles are most likely to suffer – and some injuries are so severe that people become incapacitated, and gain weight while laid up.
Common causes of injury are not warming up properly, not taking your age into account and using the wrong footwear.
