Psychological factors can play a significant role in sport and exercise. In sport, psychological preparation could mean the difference between winning and losing, whilst in exercise psychological factors could dictate whether or not we decide to even start an exercise programme.

This material forms part of The Open University module E233 Sport and exercise psychology: a case study approach.
