Various specifics may be involved in studies of anatomical kinesiology. For example, some researchers might undertake a detailed study of how movements through air and movements through water affect the bones and muscles of the body. Other types of common research projects include evaluations of timed exercise throughout a range of existing health conditions to determine the overall effect of a certain activity on human health.
Many schools and universities have advanced kinesiology departments. Students in these departments may later pursue careers as fitness coaches, elementary or secondary school kinesiology instructors, nutritionists, or sports medicine. These professionals are often instrumental in campaigns to fight obesity and related conditions like heart disease. They are typically engaged in the struggle to create awareness about how physical activity can help nearly all people prevent or diminish some chronic health conditions.
