More About This Textbook


As exercise becomes essentially a commodity item in modern society, and as consumers come to expect the same sort of assessment and health care enjoyed by professional and world-class athletes, the profession of exercise physiology has grown in both range of applications and in sheer volume. Boone (exercise physiology, U. of Saint Scholastica) describes how these trends have changed the profession, how exercise physiologists must learn to think of themselves and their work as a result and take charge of their own futures, how changes have come within the academic arm of the profession, how exercise physiologists can create niches and earn credibility, what they can do in and through professional organizations, and what the future holds for professional exercise physiologists.
