Impact of professional training on ones health
Many children dream of choosing the professional sport as their future occupation. The boys often dream of becoming football players, while the girls are fond of dancing. Attending the sport clubs and going in for sport are praiseworthy. It may have only positive impact on ones health. These children would be disillusioned if they knew what the real professional sport is. Sometimes even parents cannot explain their children that the world of professional sport is cruel.
In order to become a well-paid sportsman, one is to demonstrate some outstanding results. Many sportsmen take performance-enhancing drugs, ruining their health. Sportsmen are often traumatized during their trainings and competitions. Some of the traumas may even have the long-term consequences and make the sportsman leave the professional sport. Actually, professional sport has nothing in common with the healthy way of life.
Hazards of professional sport
The professional sportsmen undergo different type s of pressure. They are to come up to the expectations of their fans and sponsors. Everyone forgets about the underachieving sportsmen the next day after their failure. It means that they can have not only physical but psychological traumas as well.

But coaching is not the same as participating in the competition.
All these factors are to be taken into consideration before choosing the professional sport as ones occupation.
