Recorded Symposium Session: Recovery for RDs: The Role of Self-Care in Health and Fitness

Mindful recovery practices are the “it” topic among athletes and everyday folks alike – from sleep to foam rolling, foods to eat, special mattresses and even pajamas. For athletes, using every possible strategy to stay at the top of the game is key, but what about for the athlete where a field, gym, or pool isn’t the main stage? This warrior puts in 10-12 hours each day at the office, then plays Uber driver for their kids, all while juggling their own self-care needs. These special “athletes” need to recover too. 

Dana White, MS, RD, ATC, and Chris Mohr, PhD, RD, have worked with all levels of athletes – from “traditional” athletes to road warrior executives – with the mission of helping them stay at the top of their game. Join them for a session where their guidance, expertise, and strategies can help you implement recovery plans for your clients and yourself!
