According to the American Kinesiology Association, Kinesiology is "the academic discipline that involves the study of physical activity and its impact on health, society, and quality of life."  One of the unique features of the academic discipline of Kinesiology is that it involves the "integration of the multi dimensional study and application of physical activity." In fact, Kinesiology "explores not only biological, medical and health-related aspects of human movement, but also psychological, social-humanistic, and professional perspectives."
