Kinesiologists play an integral role in the primary and secondary prevention of chronic conditions/diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cardiac disease. Kinesiologists can be found working in fitness facilities, personal training/corporate wellness facilities, and industry.

Musculoskeletal Assessment
Musculoskeletal Assessments evaluate baseline and post treatment measures of physical function.

Strength and Endurance Testing
Kinesiologists examine the individual's muscular strength and endurance.

Strength and Endurance Exercises
Kinesiologists develop muscular strength and endurance exercises to improve the physical abilities of the individual.

Cardiovascular Exercises
Kinesiologists develop programs developed at increasing the cardiovascular fitness level of the individual.

Range of Motion Exercises
Kinesiologists develop programs designed to increase the flexibility of the individual.

Hydrotherapy
Kinesiologists develop aquatic programs to increase fitness.

Education
Kinesiologists provide education sessions to individuals to help improve their health status and injury prevention.

Clinical/Rehabilitation
Kinesiologists work with individuals with disabling conditions to assist in regaining their optimal physical function. They work with individuals in their home, fitness facilities, rehabilitation clinics, and at the worksite.

Musculoskeletal Assessment
Kinesiologists evaluate baseline and post treatment measures of physical function to formulate a treatment plan.

Strength and Endurance Testing
Kinesiologists examine the individual's muscular strength and endurance to formulate a training or treatment plan.

Functional Capacity Evaluation
Kinesiologists evaluate an individual's ability to perform functional tasks such as strength, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, mobility, and positional tolerance in order to determine an individual's ability to function at home or work.

Assistive Devices Utilization
Kinesiologists provide assessments and prescription of assistive devices to enhance physical performance of activities of normal living, work, recreation or leisure.
