The American College of Sports Medicine defines Exercise Science as 'an umbrella term used to describe the study of numerous aspects of physical activity, exercise, sport, and athletic performance that have the common characteristic of movement and the adaptations that occur as a result of physical activity and regular exercise.'
As such, exercise science incorporates a number of applied areas of interest, including:
Informative talk by psychologist Dr. Emily Balcetis who shows that when it comes to fitness, some people quite literally see the world differently from others — and offers a surprisingly simple solution to overcome these differences.
Sport and Exercise Science: An Introduction provides a broad-based foundation in the major areas that underpin the scientific study of sport and exercise science, thus helping undergraduate students to develop a sound understanding of human anatomy, physiology, nutrition, metabolism, biomechanics and psychology related to sport, exercise and health.
It includes a range of useful features in every chapter, including clear explanations of key concepts, colour diagrams and photographs, activities and summaries to reinforce understanding, and on-line support materials for lecturers such as question and image banks. This is the essential companion text for any student studying sport and exercise science at degree level.
