At Monte Nido programs, we believe that clients’ healing is centered around overall body, mind, soul connections. It is this body-mind connection that we believe is vital to help ensure that your relationship with exercise will be a healthy one in the future. Just like we do with food, we hope that you will be able to develop a mindful and intuitive relationship with exercise in your recovery.The movement and exercise that you are exposed to in treatment will be guided by your multidisciplinary treatment team and will work in conjunction with our level system.

According to the latest research available in the field of eating disorders, it is important for us to integrate safe movement and exercise into our programs at every level of care. Each client will complete an assessment so we can tailor their movement treatment plan. Goals will be set and accomplishments will be reviewed weekly to make sure that we are making progress on your goal to develop an improved relationship with movement and your body. Exercise and movement activities might include:


  • Mind/Body Experiences
  • Yoga
  • Weight training
  • Nature walks
  • Dance and movement classes

Movement, Exercise, and Athletes

Since each athlete’s needs are unique and different we take particular care in treating each person on an individual basis. It is
often difficult for those involved (the athlete, parents, coaches) to determine where the “appropriate” amount of training and attention to diet ends and the eating disorder begins. We work hard to help individuals distinguish between healthy and excessive behaviors.

We are sensitive to the factors that may have played a part in the development of an athlete’s eating disorder. Ideas about perfection, pushing through pain, being in top physical form, focus on a low body weight and high muscle mass, demanding coaching and the prioritization of training and performance above all else can all factor into the development and maintenance of an eating disorder. We believe that clients need to develop a sense of faith and trust in their body and that self-care is an important component of any training program. With the help of nutritionists, exercise trainers, psychiatrists and therapists we assist the client in developing a unique, healthy, balanced approach to exercise and nutrition.
