Why Athletes Should Learn CPR

Whether you’re a runner, cyclist, swimmer, etc…you should know how to properly perform CPR if the need arises.  If your running partner collapsed during a morning run would you know what to do?  If your child collapsed on the volleyball court would you know what to do?  These are questions you should ask yourself and if the answer is no, I strongly encourage you to take the time and learn CPR.

Here at Life Savers 101 we teach you the skills needed to successfully perform CPR on someone that has suffered from cardiac arrest.  Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., and more than 70% of those individuals did not receive CPR.  Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival.

Life Savers 101 offers classes to fit your busy schedule and can accommodate individuals or large groups.  Please read the attached article courtesy of Runners World for a great example of why you should learn CPR.
