Applying the sport commitment model to strength and conditioning
Athlete, Motivation, Psychology
Strength and Conditioning Journal
It is important that athletes are committed to a strength and conditioning program, to gain speed and power. However, for many strength and conditioning coaches, it is difficult to facilitate the commitment of their athletes to the program. The sport commitment model is a theoretical model that can help coaches understand the commitment levels of their athletes. Therefore, the purpose of this work is to highlight the 6 antecedents of sport commitment: sport enjoyment, involvement alternatives, personal investment, social constraints, involvement opportunities, and social support. Then, these antecedents will be applied to the field of strength and conditioning. © National Strength and Conditioning Association.
