ABSTRACT

This study was set to investigate the extent to which safety and emergency equipment and measures have been instituted in selected fitness centres in Edo and Delta States with a view to identifying possible lapses in the current status vis a vis the recommendations of the American Heart Association/American College of Sports Medicine. A validated questionnaire and a checklist were used as the research instruments and 37 fitness centres were randomly selected from four major towns in the two states. The findings of the study helped to throw more light on the current state of play regarding safety and emergency equipment and measures. It revealed that fitness centres in Edo and Delta States are far from meeting the required recommendations for safety and emergency equipment and measures.
