Athletes Targeting Healthy Exercise and Nutrition Alternatives (ATHENA)

About this resource

The ATHENA program is an eight-session health promotion program for athletes that targets nutrition and healthy physical development that aims to prevent disordered eating and body-shaping drug use. It is designed to be used with small groups of athletes with facilitation by a coach and an assigned peer leader. There are four supporting publications to implement the program; a manual for coaches and a manual for peer leaders which each contain activities and scripted lesson plans; a team workbook with session-by-session goals and activities, and an athlete's guide which contains up-to-date information on nutrition, growth and development, drugs and athletes, and other relevant topics.
