About the book
Physical activity and exercise are important for a healthy life. How to become physically active or how to remain physically active through a lifetime have several challenges. Learning to like an activity or to be a sports athlete depends on several factors, e.g., motivation and coaching are some factors, and how much does the personality matter? What does it take to have a physically active life at any level, and what are the theories behind changing habits to become more physically active or to start to exercise?
This book will aim to give the readers an introduction to some topics within sports psychology with a special focus on motivation, changing of behavior, personalities, and what you as a coach/leader/teacher can contribute to getting more people to be active at every level and/or to help to create a habit of being physically active throughout life.
