The Biomechanics of Sports and Exercise Specialist introduces exercise and sport biomechanics in simple terms. The course first provides students the necessary fundamentals into mechanics which then allows for a deeper more comprehensive study and understanding into functional anatomy. Trainers learn the consequences of external forces, how the body generates internal forces to maintain position and how forces create movement in physical activities.
