Kinesiology Guelph

Kinesiology is the science of human movement. It focuses on how the body functions and moves. A kinesiological approach applies the latest evidenced based medical principles to preserve and enhance human movement in all settings and populations.

Kinesiology is the systematic study of the body in movement. Kinesiologists work to understand how and why people move the way they do, and the factors which limit and enhance our capacity to move. The goal of Kinesiology is to discover strategies for improved human health and performance. The work of kinesiologists benefits all those who move, including high-performance athletes, people suffering from chronic injury or disease, and those wanting to improve their overall physical health.

Kinesiology is a multidisciplinary science encompassing anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, psychomotor behaviour, and social and cultural factors. It is this multidisciplinary approach to movement and human performance that leads to the many benefits of Kinesiology and makes it an important contributor to health and wellness, as well as to high performance sport.

As society becomes increasingly health-conscious and fitness-oriented, more careers in the health and wellness industry are available to certified Kinesiologists. While baby boomers are aging, their life expectancy is increasing at the same time and quality of life is becoming increasingly important to them. As well, changes are being made in the world of health care, and there is growing interest in complementary approaches to health and fitness. Maintaining health, and preventing injury and disease, are the focus for future health models.
