Sport and exercise
What is sport and exercise?
Sport and exercise is a professional field dedicated to the teaching, training or business of sport and exercise. Sport and exercise professionals apply their expertise to jobs in sport, science, health, fitness and recreation. They can work in a sport science context, which is focused on the health, performance and wellbeing of the human body; or in a sport management context, which examines sport as a business opportunity.
