What are the temperamental factors that make a good athlete? Today, Opal Founders Kara Bazzi, LMFT, CEDS, Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD, CD, and Lexi Giblin PhD, CEDS, and host Carter Umhau, LMHCA talk sport and performance, exploring the topic through the Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy lens of “overcontrol.” The Appetite crew discusses how this overcontrolled temperament in athletes might lead to high athletic performance on one hand, but might also be the very thing that leads an athlete to struggle with food, body, and movement. Kara—creator of Opal’s Exercise and Sport Program—speaks to the potential these athletes have to increase freedom and flexibility in their relationship with themselves and movement, putting the joy back into sport again.
