Review questions:
1. Today's university programs are not all focussed on producing phys ed teachers, only up
until the 1970s was that true, now we have a varied focus on the field of kin.
2. No, not all university kin programs are the same, they may differ in their focus.
3. Population growth, sport industry, health awareness increase.
4. Medicine and medical science, health and fitness, teaching and coaching, police officer,
therapy and rehabilitation, sport management and administration.
5. The four programs of the health and fitness industry include: worksite programs,
commercial programs, clinical programs ,community programs. Worksite prgrams are
programs designed to help employees stay healthy and fit for their jobs. Commercial
programs are owned businesses that operate for profits. Clinical programs are services
that offer specific programs for personal help. And community programs are just
buildings operated by nonprofit people in the hopes for a healthier society.
6. Exercise therapy can either be for a rehabilitative purpose, or a habilitative purpose.
Rehabilitative meaning you are put in a specific program so you can gain back your
fitness potential. For example, getting over an injured muscle. Or habilitative meaning
you can increase your overall fitness level for example, boot camps.
7. The difference between teaching and coaching is coaches often deal with more higher
developed skill-levelled athletes. As where teachers usually teach at the base level, no
matter how different the skill levels an audience can be.
8. Having a kin degree can land you some opportunities in the sport management and
administration field, things like working on the grey cup, organizing a timesheet for when
teams will play and where, managing who plays on the team, and when.
9. Risk factors in sport are risks in sport that may lead to injury, and breaking of rules. Both
end in financial losses because there will either be fines, wasted money, or less viewers.
10. CEO’s look for these qualities in their employees: communication skills. And getting your
kinesiology degree may help with that because of how the curriculum is set up!
