CPR Training and AEDs Can Save Lives in the Gym

via Shutterstock

CPR training and AEDs protect gyms and athletic organizations from liability, and defibrillators are required by law in 15 states and DC.

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), up to 70% of Americans do not know how to properly respond to a situation in which a family member or nearby individual suffers a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) – either due to a complete lack of CPR training, or their inability to recall the training they previously received. While this statistic is concerning enough for the average American, it’s even more alarming for those who manage or own gyms and athletic training facilities.

Stronger, Faster: Why Athletic Trainers Should Be Using Whole Body Vibration

Are you interested in helping your athletes get stronger and faster? What about injury prevention? Faster recovery times? Proprioceptive integration? 

Whole body vibration is commonly used with professional athletes for exactly those reasons! The technology isn’t seen as often with university and high school athletes, even though it is simple, easy to use, highly effective and now affordable. Clearly, athletic trainers in the collegiate and high school arenas may be missing an opportunity.
