Athletic trainers work diligently to ensure a player is ready for the next practice and the next game. These principles can also be applied in the workplace via industrial athletic trainers, who are onsite to ensure every employee is physically able to have a productive, healthy and effective day at work – whether it’s at a job-site, on a production line, sitting at a desk or fighting crime.
