The word kinesiology comes from kinesi, which means movement, and logie, which signifies science. It is the science of movement.

Kinesiologists specialize in physical activity, using movement for prevention, treatment, and performance. They try to reduce risk factors related to a sedentary lifestyle. The goal is a greater empowerment of individuals towards their own health.

Kinesiologists evaluate the determinants of the physical state (body composition, aerobic, and musculoskeletal abilities), and the dynamics of movement of a person who may or may not present disturbed personal factors. Then, they create a treatment and intervention plan through physical activity, and they ensure its realization in order to improve or restore health.
