This book proposes that healthcare is not just about physical abilities but mental and spiritual beliefs as well. The book argues for a more complex understanding of the psycho-physiological connection and advocates for a more holistic approach that may presently be perceived as a radical way to think about the practice of exercise and exercise physiology as a profession. The integration of spirituality with exercise physiology should allow for a new understanding of exercise physiologists as healthcare providers. Skeptics may doubt this point, but there has never been a better time for the academic exercise physiologist to bring spirituality into the classroom. Not only does the literature argue for a more holistic way to connect with clients/patients, it gives spirituality a more central place in the education of exercise physiologists. Students will come to realize the importance of taking the time to listen to the needs, hopes, and dreams of their clients/patients even if it is more the exception than the rule. This connection is at the heart of exercise physiology as a healthcare profession.
