The Appetite Episode #63:
Coaches and Athletes: Whole Self Conditioning off the Field
An Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Podcast
How can we take care of the athlete as a whole person? Often considered a lesser concern, the mental health of the athlete is of key importance—both on and off the field. Jason Desrochers, head personal trainer, and Monica VanWinkle, MS, RD, sports dietitian—both in the Seattle Pacific University athletic department and beyond—join Opal Co-Founder and Director of the Exercise + Sport team Kara Bazzi, LMFT, CEDS and host Carter Umhau, LMHC to help us all reimagine a healthier circle of support in the athletic environment. From athletic conditioning for the whole person to coaches’ attitudes, this episode offers an empowering and educational window into mental health support and eating disorder prevention for those on all sides of athletics.
