Why should we exercise? When should we exercise? Why don't we exercise? The Psychology of Exercise separates fact from fiction, delving into key theories, ideas, and the impact of life stages on when, why, and how we exercise.
It explores the barriers and motivators to exercise for children, teenagers, adults, and retirees as well as for those living with a chronic health condition.
It shows how when we personalise activity programmes, exercise becomes a life-affirming, life-lengthening habit. Using real-life case studies from those who work with exercisers at all levels, The Psychology of Exercise shows us the huge value that comes from exercising in every stage of our lives.
