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.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Sara Gojević-Zrnić

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
