MAYMESTER: EXERCISE AND SPORT FOR HEALTH, FITNESS, AND PERFORMANCE

 

Japan is a fascinating place for studying sports and fitness. Tokyo will host the 2021 Summer Olympics and during this Maymester, athletes will be arriving from all over the world as the entire country prepares for sports' largest international event. The Japanese are one of the healthiest populations with some of the longest life expectancy.

This class will cover a variety of topics such as sports science, exercise physiology, physical activity and health, sport nutrition, and lifestyle behavior. Students will experience excursions around Tokyo to the Olympic Training Center, the Olympic stadiums and venues, and the National Institute of Health and Nutrition. By living with locals through the home stay program, students can acquire a more authentic cultural experience in Japan.
