Moving into an Active Future: Supporting Lifetime Physical Activity for Student-athletes

By Melinda Smith, M.S., CSCS; Erin Reifsteck, Ph.D.; and Diane Gill, Ph.D., FACSM

Former student-athletes face unique challenges in transitioning to lifestyle physical activity, including loss of extrinsic motivators, disbanding of teams, and limited exposure to activities beyond their sport. With an emphasis on enhancing physical activity competence, autonomy, and relatedness, health and fitness professionals can support student-athletes in their transition to a physically active lifestyle beyond college. Suggested strategies include offering transitional programs for student athletes during their final year, fostering community connections, and exposing former student-athletes to varied lifetime activities within supportive group classes.
