Two FREE Webinars:

JoAnn Eickhoff-Shemek, PhD, FACSM, President of the Fitness Law Academy, LLC will be presenting the following “free” webinars:
Webinar #1: Mitigating Legal Liability Risks: Important Legal Duties and Risk Management Responsibilities of Fitness Managers –Thursday, February 10th, 2:00-3:00 pm (EST)
The most important legal duty of fitness managers is to provide reasonably safe facilities and programs for their members and participants. This webinar will describe negligence lawsuits in which fitness managers failed to carry out this duty as well as the types of risk management strategies needed to properly fulfill this duty. Injuries and subsequent negligence law suits are common against fitness facilities and programs and potentially costly with some courts awarding plaintiffs (injured parties) millions of dollars. Minimizing injuries and litigation is possible if fitness managers have the knowledge and skills to do so.
Webinar #2: Exercise Prescriptions for Clinical Populations: Factors Courts Consider when Determining the Exercise Professional’s Standard of Care – Thursday. Feb. 17th 2:00-3:00 pm (EST)
To avoid legal liability, all exercise professionals must meet a certain standard of care. Is this standard of care different for professionals who prescribe exercise for individuals with medical conditions? This webinar will answer this question by describing negligence cases in which the exercise professional failed to prescribe a proper exercise prescription given the individual’s medical condition. Important factors the courts considered to determine the standard of care in these cases will also be discussed.
