Compulsive exercise is an important symptom of the eating disorders. It affects up to 80% of patients and is associated with longer length of hospitalisation, poor recovery, increased physiological complications and relapse rates. Work conducted by Professor Caroline Meyer and her team has increased our understanding of the causes and maintenance factors associated with problematic exercise and has led to the development of screening and assessment tools. In addition, this work has resulted in the development of LEAP, which is a cognitive-behavioural based approach specifically aimed at reducing compulsive exercise cognitions and behaviours.
