My pursuit into this field was my undiscovered love for anatomy, exercise physiology, and strength training. Each course led me deeper and deeper into exercise science; initially as a swim coach to a personal trainer and now pursuing my doctorate.
The continuous research within the exercise science and physical activity field has proven over and over why exercise/physical activity is so important, physiologically and psychologically. We know the importance of both and the implications for individuals. During this pandemic the population is FINALLY realizing how essential physical activity is to the psyche.
