The purpose of this report is to summarize and synthesize recent research evidence on the injury consequences of promoting physical activity. The guiding research question was whether individuals who increase their levels of physical activity are at an increased (or decreased) risk of injury as a result. A secondary research question was whether overweight and/or obese individuals are at an increased risk of exercise-related injuries compared with individuals who are of healthy weight.
