Health is important to athletes’ wellbeing and performance in competition. Under intense training, athletes may be at risk for negative physical and mental health outcomes. Athlete burnout may represent a potential risk factor for such health outcomes. To further understand the importance of burnout to athletes’ health, in the presented study we provide the first systematic review of the association between athlete burnout and health, both mentally and physically. A literature search returned 54 studies (N = 13,976). A systematic review of the literature showed athlete burnout to be associated with both increases in negative mental health outcomes and declines in positive mental health outcomes. Evidence for an association between athlete burnout and physical health outcomes was mixed. There is a clear need for further research in this area, especially in relation to burnout and its association with physical health. Nevertheless, the present findings from this review show the importance of athlete burnout to health.
