If you are currently working with athletes and performers you are involved with an at-risk population for eating disorders. Reaching peak performance should not mean preoccupation with eating, shape and weight.

Change will not come only from the athletes but with the help of the organizations and the people who coach them, support them and work with them on a daily basis. With the right education, mindset and protocols, sports systems can be central in ensuring athlete health and wellness.

That is why Dare To Fuel Performance has created a straightforward step-by-step program based on best practices in the fields of change management and eating disorders as well as profession-specific trainings designed specifically for performing arts and sports organizations.

We have the skills and competencies to enable you to transform your organization into a safe & empowering place for eating and body image.

"I am proud of the progress we have made, supported by Alexia de Macar and Jodie Richardson. They were able to guide our teaching team by pointing out the markers to look out for. We have been able to address the major issues that can plague our aspiring artists: anxiety, low self-esteem, eating disorders, etc."
