Sports psychology is the study of how psychology influences sports, athletic performance, exercise and physical activity. Division 47 (Exercise and Sport Psychology) of the American Psychological Association describes sports psychology as "an interdisciplinary specialization that cuts across psychology and the sport sciences."

Some sports psychologists work with professional athletes and coaches to improve performance and increase motivation. Other professionals utilize exercise and sports to enhance people's lives and well-being throughout the entire lifespan.
