Kinesiology for Your New Year’s Resolutions

What is kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement, performance, and function. Contrary to a personal trainer, a kinesiologist must complete a 4 year science degree and become registered under the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists (BCAK) to practice in BC.

Why might you need a kinesiologist?

Working with a kinesiologist can provide you 1-on-1 care to help you achieve your New Year’s goals, while minimizing your risk of injury. A kinesiologist works to assess your movement patterns, your range of motion, and identify any areas of weakness or tension that may be prohibiting you from achieving your fitness goals.

How can a kinesiologist help with your New Year’s resolutions?

Working with a kinesiologist can ensure that you adhere to a program so that you stay on top of your New Year’s resolutions. Whether your goal is to be more active, lose a couple pounds or run the next big marathon, we can support you in achieving your goals in the safest way possible.

What are the primary benefits of working with a kinesiologist?

Aside from exercises and stretches, working with a kinesiologist allows patients to become educated on their pain and provides an active approach on how to relieve it. Additionally, patients learn about proper body mechanics that help minimize the risk of injury and how to strengthen and lengthen problematic muscles to alleviate persisting pain.

An added benefit of working with a kinesiologist is the option to exercise in a semi-private workout area, which is scheduled for patients’ use, providing a more private gym experience than a traditional gym setting.
