Fitness Australia Guidelines: Identifying and managing members with eating disorders and/or problems with excessive exercise.

About this resource

These guidelines are designed to assist fitness centre staff to provide advice and support to the individual with an Eating Disorder or exercise problem and to manage facility use in this population to promote safety and well-being.

The guidelines present policy statements and action strategies, including example dialogue, to achieve these aims.
