This Web site was created to offer students supplementary education and information about health related fitness with an emphasis on the psychosocial aspects of physical activity and exercise. Framed in the context of researching influences on physical activity and actually working with individuals and groups seeking to initiate, increase, or maintain physical activity, the information presented on this Web site builds upon prior research completed in the fields of physical education, health promotion, and exercise sport psychology as well as practical professional experience. The target audience is Manhattan College students – specifically students in the School of Education (future primary and secondary educators) and Physical Education majors (students interested in becoming physical educators and exercise science/sports medicine specialists) as well as other campus-wide physically active and physically inactive individuals. Members of the greater community – locally, nationally, and internationally – who are interested in living a physically active lifestyle, are also encouraged to listen to the podcasts for educational and informational purposes.
