The long-term effects of endurance sports are good for your health. However, if you recently were fighting illness or injury, you have to be careful. It is important to get a sports health check before participating in any competitions or increased physical activity in order to rule out a higher risk. Regardless of your level of fitness, the sports doctors at the Medical Institute recommend a health check for every athlete.
