The significance of the effect of health on work, school, and athletic performance is well known. Nevertheless, scientific investigations that examine how sport and exercise affect young athletes’ performance in school and athletics are under-represented. Furthermore, there is a lack of scientific research on women’s health, specifically the menstruation cycle and its impact on health and performance. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is devoted to publishing recent findings on “sport and exercise for health and performance” and aims to make a substantial contribution to our knowledge about:
- women’s health;
- young athletes’ health and performance;
- psychological and physiological testing methods that contribute to monitoring population and specific groups’ health and performance;
- shared mental modelling and the related management in work/school/club environments;
- mental toughness and its impact on health and performance; and
- heart rate and its impact on mortality.
Hence, this Special Issue aims to address a wide range of topics related, but not limited, to Sport and Exercise for Health and Performance. Therefore, the scope of this Special Issue is all aspects of Sport and Exercise for Health and Performance that can contribute to the development of scientists, teachers, coaches, athletes, women, the young, the elderly, and to the optimization of practice, including health risk assessment and management combined with effective prevention methods.
