As part of the annual National Kinesiology Week, the Canadian Kinesiology Alliance wants to remind Canadians that help is available for those who are struggling to achieve the recommended minimum level of physical activity and to adopt an active lifestyle. That’s why National Kinesiology Week is a great opportunity for people to meet with kinesiologists who can take the time to better explain to them how it is possible to increase their level of motivation and achieve their health goals.
Kinesiologists are human movement specialists. These specialists are also the best resource for those who are struggling with problems like diabetes, back pain or blood pressure problems in order to set up a personalized training plan and thus improve their health. They work at different levels such as health promotion, sports training, rehabilitation, occupational health and safety, ergonomics, disability management, research and sports medicine. The Canadian Kinesiology Alliance (CKA) represents Kinesiologists on a national level by promoting and by providing advocacy of the profession of Kinesiology in Canada. The Alliance counts over 4,000 affiliates across the country.
Various activities will be offered across the country during National KinWeek to promote the importance for Canadians to get help for an active lifestyle. Find a Kin or events near you, visit www.CKA.ca or call 844-kinesio (546-3746).
