Getting older is hard for anyone to accept but it is especially hard for athletes. We define ourselves based on our physical abilities and the work put in, in order to compete against others. Aging slowly limits what our bodies can be capable of and at the same time increases the risk of injury as well as the length of time it takes to recover. However, this doesn't mean you should quit. Embrace the opportunity to gain knowledge and pay respect to the gifts you possess by continuing to move forward, because the one thing that will never decline is the joy you get from training.

The perception of sport psychology has a tendency to be misinterpreted. Sport psychology consultants are trained to assist athletes with psychological preparation for competition and the mental and emotional demands of their sport. Certified athletic trainers agree that these services play a vital role in the development of any athlete and feel that it can benefit their performance on and off the field by improving focus and building confidence.
