The Female and Male Athlete Triad Coalition intends to present athletes with the essential educational tools existing in the field of Sports Medicine and Exercise Physiology. The goal is to improve the presence of disordered eating/energy deficits, reproductive suppression, and bone loss/osteoporosis in the athletic and physically active population.

By drawing attention to the negative pressures and messages related to aesthetics and weight loss in sport and exercise, the available information aims to educate athletes in all types of sport and physical activity (leanness, endurance, power, etc) from entry to the elite level. Fundamental definitions, recognizable signs and risk factors are provided in hopes of attaining the necessary understanding of available treatments and preventative measures positively impacting the prevalence and consequences of this condition.
