Can I please make a suggestion to add a subcategory to either psychology or training for sports (or even related to health and fitness). Sport and exercise psychology would allow specific sport and exercise content to be categorised. I'm seeing lots of traffic on hubs in the area but they're mainly classified under categories like applied psychology and therefore if viewers look at topic pages the hubs they will see will often be irrelevant to their students.
I have seen large numbers of articles on hubpages detailing maintaining focus for weight loss as well which would allow these to be bundled together for hopefully greater effect
What do people feel about this idea?
Without doing the in-depth research on the subject, the concept sounds like mind conditioning for the sake of fitness endurance.
Dedicated and Rigorous and Repetitive so it becomes a natural act.
Military Training as one aspect but training for School Sports is as I remember was the introduction to such conditioning, but any one born to a rural or back to nature country living background knows what hardline strenuous exercise is all about. Common homeland people surviving by living off and by what the earth provides knows about physical labor and the mindset that consists of; producing some of the worlds greatest athletes. And yes; they do have to be categorized in various talents.
consider the various tradesman of old, they all specialized in their own field of endeavors, then we evolved to trying quite unsuccessfully to expect others to achieve likewise ability thru body and mind re-conditioning and black ball and outcast they whom don't fit in, What a sad society we have ever been.
Thanks for the suggestion! I've recently created a Fitness Motivation Topic under Health> Exercise and Fitness> Fitness Motivation. Perhaps this Topic will work for your needs?
Thanks Christy for your thoughts however I don't feel that a fitness motivation title really does the area enough justice to encompass everything a sport and exercise psychology category would offer.
It's true we see a lot of fitness motivation articles on the site but I more see motivation as a niche within sports psychology which doesn't really address aspects of leadership in sport, stress factors, team development or sports related arousal and the subsequent theories which entail.
Sports psychology would offer a much bigger picture and from what ive seen in terms of traffic it offers an area where hubbers could be successful (everyone seems to want to write about motivation so success is more limited)
Thanks for your patience, CyclingFitness. I've just created a Sport Psychology Topic under Education and Science>Psychology and Psychiatry>Sport Psychology. It doesn't have its own Topic Page yet, but one will automatically be created when 5+ Hubs are categorized under the new Topic.

What about a sports apparel subcategory? A category which features clothes and accessories needed for different sports.

Hi, I can't help thinking that it would be helpful to have the option for hubs to be linked to more than one category if necessary. For example, I wrote a review on a book about the TV show Mad Men. However, I was torn about which category to allocate this hub too. I ended up...

I don't know if this would be programmatically possible for you guys, but it would be REALLY nice to be able to put hubs in more than one group.For example, I might like to put my "Gift Ideas for Pirates" hub in the following groups:Funny HubsGift IdeasPirate HubsIt's just a quick...
