EXERCISE PSYCHOLOGY

Exercise psychology is focused on the connection between psychological principles and physical activity. It tries to promote involvement and enjoyment through exercise.


The most common role for an exercise psychologist is to teach mental skills for enhanced performance. A mental game expert can help you improve confidence, focus, composure, intensity, and trust in athletic performance. These mental skills help athletes improve performance and can help in other areas of an athlete's life.
