Summary

The second edition of The Psychology of Exercise: Integrating Theory and Practice weaves together theory, research, application, and intervention, using evidence- and theoretical-based information to provide students with a solid foundation of exercise psychology. In this user-friendly text, the authors have applied prominent and thoroughly researched theories and models to actual situations that students are likely to encounter professionally.

The six chapters in Part I help students understand and modify exercise behavior, while the chapters in Part II discuss psychosocial influences and consequences of physical activity. Among the topics reviewed are the relationship between exercise and personality and the impact of exercise on self-esteem, stress, anxiety and depression, and emotional well-being. Chapters on social influences, body image, and health-related quality of life offer the latest information on these emerging areas of study. All chapters in this new edition have been completely updated, which makes this the most up-to-date book on the market.
