What is Kinesiology
Kinesiology studies the dynamics of the human body: how it moves, and how its anatomy work together to produce movement. The goal of kinesiology is to create efficient movement patterns to optimize performance and function.
Originally developed in Sweden, the word “kinesiology” comes from a translation into Greek and English from the Swedish word Rörelselära, which means “Movement Science.”
Through the study of human movement, professionals can prescribe and teach you exercises to optimize your range of motion and flexibility, as well as your strength, balance, and endurance. Kinesiologists will help you develop healthy exercise routines and schedules, and can also help you learn sport-specific skills to improve your performance.
Looking for strength training? Whether it is to prevent disease such as osteoporosis, to help you pick up your grandchildren, or to help you train for your upcoming hiking trip. Strength training is crucial to enjoying an active life.
