Do you HEART your AT? Well if you do, you’re in luck as March is National Athletic Training Month. Athletic Trainers are highly qualified allied healthcare professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, ermergency care, clinical diagnosis, theraputic intervention and rehabilitaiton of injuries and medical conditions. FITLIFE is proud to be an Athletic Trainer founded and owned business for over 20 years.

Additionally, Athletic Trainers should not be confused with personal trainers. Although the skillsets of these professions do overlap a little, the job duties, educational background, and patients vary greatly.

If you haven’t already, give a shoutout to John Neel for all his years of hard work and service to the Athletic Training profession. Also, stay tuned to the blog this month as we have some great posts coming up regarding the profession and will highlight some amazing ATs throughout the month.
