“Post Olympic games, time off training could also result in changes to the athletes’ bodies,” she adds. Olympians are in their physical prime, so when they cease intense training some will lose the body that’s become a part of their identity.

Training at the Olympic level can have a dark side; depression, anxiety attacks, and eating disorders are more prevalent than anyone realizes. The stress of constant training can be, both, a cause and a cover for great physical and psychological strain.

In her upcoming book, Swimming Out of Water: How an Olympian’s Struggle Inspired Breakthrough Discoveries in Health and Well-Being, Catherine talks candidly about life before, during and after the Olympics. The book recounts how she became a healthier person AFTER she stopped competing.

We’ve got practical information you can apply for real-life breakthroughs! Learn how Catherine’s failed attempts led her to co-create a new approach to living well on Saturday, August 25th @ 7PM EST at BEYONDtheCheers on blogtalkradio.
