Exercise Psychology

"Exercise Psychology" addresses the psychological and biological consequences of exercise and physical activity, and their subsequent effects on mood and mental health. In contrast to other exercise psychology textbooks it presents a psychobiolocal approach that examines the inner workings of the body and their effects on behaviour. From this unique perspective, readers will learn the biological foundations of exercise psychology within the broader contexts of cognitive, social and environmental influences. By exploring the biological mechanisms associated with individuals' behaviour, Exercise Psychology challenges students and researchers to critically examine less-explored methods for positive behaviour change. Understanding the psychological antecedents and consequences of physical activity.
