Kinesiology is the study of human movement. It guides our personal training work here at Positive Shift in Burnaby.
Kinesiology addresses physiological, mechanical, and psychological mechanisms. Applications of kinesiology to human health include: biomechanics and orthopedics, strength and conditioning, sport psychology, rehabilitation (such as physical and occupational therapy) and sport and exercise/fitness.
Individuals practice in a wide-variety of fields including as researchers, in the fitness industry, clinical settings, and in industrial/commercial environments. Studies of human and animal motion include measures from motion tracking systems, eletrophysiology of muscle and brain activity, various methods for monitoring physiological function, and other behavioural and cognitive research techniques.

As a personal trainer, my kinesiology background adds a lot to the services I offer. Even when someone has a goal related to weight-loss or muscle gain, moving better benefits everyone. There is a high incidence of injury when people start a new exercise routine.
Are you looking to get started on a fitness or rehabilitation program? Consider working with a Kinesiologist to get you on track. Personal Training is a great way to get started.
