Chapters begin with an example designed to give a preview of the concepts to be covered in the chapters. The example is then carried throughout the chapters and referred to at relevant points. This provides concrete information that students can use to aid in understanding concepts and provides them clear application of the material.
Each chapter is divided into "Concepts and Connections" sections. After presenting the fundamental concepts, the authors relate those concepts to subdisciplines (i.e. Exercise Physiology, Motor Behavior, Adapted PE, Pedagogy) to meet the needs of the mixed audience taking the course.
"Focus on Research" sections at the end of the chapter pull concepts together, describing a recent research study and relating it to the chapter concepts. These important sections both demonstrate the variety of ongoing research in Biomechanics-related fields and provide information on the most up-to-date research.
The text includes a great review of anatomy to help students coming into the course refresh their knowledge and be prepared for the course material.
