Excercise and Sport
Sport is healthy. About ten million Dutch people participate in sports. Unfortunately, however, children are not exercising enough and therefore need some encouragement.
What other benefits does sport have, besides keeping you healthy? Research has shown that physical exercise has a positive effect, not only on physical health, but also on mental health. Within the research theme Human Movement and Sport, we seek to identify the best ways to use sport and exercise in various settings in order to promote mental health. We also consider how exercise education can be improved.
