Then there are those who get so frustrated they quit because they think they will never reach their fitness goals.

How LED lighting is reaching all levels of outdoor sports
Athletic Business
The future for high-intensity discharge bulbs as an instrument of sports illumination grows dimmer by the day. The picture is darkest indoors. "In professional and collegiate arenas, the cost of ownership and the quality of the light delivered is better with LED than it is with HID right now, and therefore LED is the only light source of choice for an indoor arena. I'm not seeing any HID at all," says Jeff Rogers, vice president of Musco Lighting, which has designed and manufactured sports lighting systems using HID technology since 1976, though few for indoor environments since 2013.

How can we prevent explosion of ACL injuries among young athletes?
Small Newspaper Group via The Times
The recent arrival of Tim Hewett, the newly appointed director of sports medicine research and biomechanics at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, pushes its Rochester and Minneapolis sports medicine programs toward a national leadership position in a separate area and growing public health problem: How do we prevent the explosion of ACL injuries among young athletes in the first place? It's no idle question. Not only is the rise of ACL surgery debilitating, painful and costly, it dramatically increases the risk of osteoarthritis later in life if the athlete chooses to go back to the planting and leaping sports like soccer and basketball in which it commonly occurs.

Football coaches focus on tackling to improve safety
Denton Record-Chronicle
Football coaches have faced the challenge of protecting players by attacking the issue from every angle. One point of emphasis is teaching young players how to tackle safely. Players are taught to never initiate a tackle with their heads down, as it could result in catastrophic head or spinal injuries. Everyone agrees on that point, but the game has changed.
