What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the science and study of human movement. Kinesiologists address physiological, biomechanical, and psychological mechanisms of movement, and apply the latest evidence-based research to help improve function, health, and wellness in people of all ages, at every level of function and physical ability.

Kinesiologists are experts in exercise and the body’s motion, possessing at minimum a bachelor’s degree in Human Kinetics (BHk) or Kinesiology (BKin). Kinesiologists are committed to enhancing quality of life through the promotion of  physical activity, workplace health and safety, prevention and management of injury, chronic disease and disability, and the overall improvement of health and performance. They can help you move better, live longer and be healthier.

Kinesiologists design and implement fitness programs for all ages, providing exercise and lifestyle-based training services, covering general fitness, sport performance, athletic training, human nutrition, and general issues related to a person’s physical wellbeing. Kinesiologists work closely with clients to assess, track, and manage overall fitness, tailoring programs to achieve results, based on individual needs and goals.
