Get the right exercise equipment
Using the correct equipment for your chosen sport or exercise will help you to avoid injury. For some sports, such as cricket or hockey, it’s essential that you wear the right protective gear such as shin pads, a mouth guard or padded gloves. Make sure your equipment is well maintained and the correct size and weight for you as this can reduce the risk of injuries.
Choosing the right shoes
One of the most important pieces of equipment for anybody doing regular physical activity is what you wear on your feet. You need to make sure your trainers suit you and your activity. Specialist running shops will be able to assess your foot type and your running style and suggest appropriate trainers.
