It’s common to hear messages in the sports world like “More is better!” “No pain, no gain!” or “Keep pushing!”

Sport psychologist Riley Nickols, PhD, CEDS joins Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Co-Founder Kara Bazzi, LMFT, CEDS to explore the athletic identity and how widespread ways of thinking about performance as an athlete may also translate into other areas of an athlete’s life and self-identity.

Bazzi and Nickols explore how these postures are reflected in an athlete’s relationship to food, body, and sport and discuss the importance of expanding one’s identity to promote a broader, more robust sense of self.
