An Introduction to Kinesiology Summary


An Introduction to Kinesiology: Studying Physical Activity by Shirl J. Hoffman

In this introductory text to physical activity, the field is described from three perspectives: experiencing physical activity, studying physical activity and practising a profession in physical activity. These three dimensions form the framework for the text. Experts in the field help students see what the students already know from experiencing physical activity; those in sub-disciplines such as exercise and sport physiology, psychology, sociology and motor behaviour define their sub-disciplines and explain what is learned through research in these areas; and professionals give students a practical sense of the joys and pitfalls of practising various professions in the field.
