Participation in regular physical activity is associated with a number of important psychological benefits, including improvements in energy level, mood, self-esteem, body image, sleep quality and more. In this webinar, Barbara A. Brehm, Ed.D., professor of exercise and sport studies at Smith College and author of the ACE text Psychology of Health and Fitness, will help you gain a deeper understanding of the psychological benefits of exercise. She will also discuss how to help your clients maximize these benefits by incorporating an understanding of them into the goals and recommendations of your behavior-change programs.
You will learn:
- How regular physical activity contributes to psychological health and well-being
- Strategies to help you incorporate the psychological benefits of exercise into behavior-change goal-setting and exercise program recommendations
- How exercise can have a positive impact on symptoms of health disorders such as anxiety and depression
It is a good introduction on psychological effects of exercise and the mechanism behind it. But it is just an introduction, I do suggest other trainers go out there and learn more on their own about the research and mechanisms to get a full picture
