Introduction. Daily exercise is not a routine. For those dedicated it is a way of life and methodology of practice is well settled. Whether it is indoor or outdoor, in absence of a supervised control fitness amateurs are exposed to high injury risks, many of them with functional and psychological consequences.
Methods. Information regarding the aim, sport activity and training modalities have been requested. Clinic x-rays and imagistic evaluation settled the diagnosis.
Results. Patients, mostly male (76.19 %), median age (24.1 years), prominent sports: basket ball, football, with weight training, aerobic dance, bicycling; training aim: leisure and pleasure (14 patients => 33.33%), body remodeling and weight loss (28 patients => 66.66%); mostly affected: ankle,
Achilles tendon, knee, shoulder, rotator cuff muscles, cervical and lumbar spine; after recovery only 19 patients can continue the same sport activity.  
Conclusions. Regular exercise is a critical part of staying healthy. The key is to find the right exercise for everyone. Injuries can be prevented with controlled proper conditioning and training wearing appropriate protective gear and using the correct equipment. 
Key words: fitness, injuries, controlled training.
