Kinesiology is the scientific study of the anatomy, physiology, and mechanics of body movement, especially in humans.  The word kinesiology is derived the Greek "kinesis" (motion) + the suffix -ology or -logy from the greek "logos" or "logia"(meaning a field of study). The American Kinesiology Association represents the academic field of kinesiology.
Kinesiology encompasses human anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, exercise physiology, exercise psychology and sociology, history, and philosophy of sport.
