Are You Struggling With Exercise Addiction?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Exercise Addiction

Exercise, in moderate amounts, has many health benefits. But a person has an exercise addiction if they are exercising so frequently or with such intensity that they are experiencing injuries, obsessive thoughts, or excessive exercising is causing problems in other areas of life, they may be dealing with exercise addiction.

People with exercise addiction may skip out on events they used to enjoy to spend more time exercising. Or they could force themselves to exercise even when they’re tired, sick, or injured. Loved ones may express concern for the amount of time the person spends devoted to exercise.

Available Treatment Options

Therapist interventions for exercise addiction fall in line with other types of addictive behaviors, including residential treatment programs where people go to an inpatient facility to work on recovery. Therapy also addresses the emotions and thoughts behind the perceived need for such frequent exercise. Counselors help develop alternative coping mechanisms for stressful or triggering situations.
