Kinesiologists work with people of all ages, goals and physical abilities. Whether you want to improve the way you move, lose body fat, tone, build muscle or enhance performance, kinesiologists will get to the root of the problem and guide you through the process to help you achieve your goals. This is especially true if you are suffering from a chronic disease, take medications or have muscle or joint pain.
Kinesiology came about largely as a result of the unregulated fitness industry. Considering the fact that anyone can call themselves a fitness trainer and there is no regulatory body that governs the fitness industry, there was a need for regulated fitness professionals who could provide expert personal training services in a safe and professional manner.
Making kinesiology a regulated health profession in Ontario, the government ensures that every time you hire a kinesiologist, you can expect high-quality care and service. Kinesiologists need to pass an entrance exam and meet strict educational, legal and professional requirements in order to practice the profession.
