No training program can completely eliminate the risk of cardiovascular disease or low back pain, but some steps can be taken to decrease the likelihood of being afflicted by either.

Most people in the United States reported in 2014 that they were not meeting all of the current federal physical activity guidelines. It is well documented that a sedentary lifestyle, like that of a typical office worker, can contribute to a number of negative health consequences such as cardiovascular disease and low back pain. There is not substantial proof that a sedentary lifestyle by itself causes low back pain; however, there is research that shows that a high percentage of sedentary office workers suffer from low back pain. The personal trainer can play an important role in preventing some of these negative effects by being aware of health concerns and taking systematic action to prevent them from occurring.
