"Foundations of Physical Activity and Public Health" is the first textbook to clearly define the intersection of exercise science and public health. It offers a solid introduction to the concepts of public health and exercise science, the techniques used to measure physical activity and the health effects of exercise and physical activity. Students will develop a greater understanding of how experts from both fields can work together to advance the use of physical activity for the prevention and treatment of chronic disease and other health issues. Examples of successful programmes from various settings, including community-wide and school-based interventions are provided to help students understand how to put theory into practice.
