UNDERSTANDING EATING DISORDERS FOR FITNESS PROFESSIONALS
Fitness professionals have a potentially very important role in helping to prevent the serious consequences of an eating disorder. While exercise is important for healthy living, it can become obsessional for those with eating disorders and can be a form of perfectionism. The risk to heart, bones, fertility and even of suicide, are great.
