Sometimes, an athlete will associate their weight and appearance with their athletic performance. They might feel pressure to look a certain way in order to perform at their best. Unsafe weight-control behaviors can threaten the athlete’s health, however, there are ways an athlete can safely manage their weight and body composition.
To help athletic trainers educate athletes, parents, coaches and other members of their community, the October NATA News featured an infographic handout on Healthful Ways to Manage Weight. The handout is available for download and can be printed and distributed.
