dc.description.abstract When Toni Liechty asks her students to stretch themselves, she's not referring to warming up muscles, although the human body has a lot to do with it. Most of her students will be providing leisure services to the public after they graduate from the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies, and she wants them to try to imagine the range of age and life circumstances of the people they will work with. This includes understanding peoples' perceptions of their bodies, and how that affects their choices of leisure activities. Body image issues are complex and far-reaching, as Liechty has discovered since she first became aware of them while working at a youth weight-loss camp.
