Foreword

This is a book for all Exercise Physiologists and those who want to adopt this profession. We are at a unique time in history, where our technological advances have led to a sedentary lifestyle. Society has adapted to a lack of physical exertion which is killing thousands of men and women of all ages. Although our science had started by analyzing human performance and ways to enhance it through the exercise stimulus, but Dr. Boone shows us that the stimulus is now a medicine to treat epidemic proportions of preventable and manageable diseases and disabilities.

ASEP’s Exercise Medicine Text for Exercise Physiologists is a timely resource for our profession. Dr. Tommy Boone’s commitment to the professionalization of Exercise Physiology is evident in his contribution to academic and practicing Exercise Physiologists. For the academic, he presents a valuable tool for teachers to help students in seeing the connection between the hands-on laboratory experiences and the physiological assessments of their future clients and patients. The use of regression equations helps in the interpretation and prescription of exercise medicine. This book reinforces the necessary understanding that an accredited education provides both the knowledge and credentials to be a healthcare professional.

Also, for those who have graduated with a degree under the umbrella of exercise sciences, it offers a justification for aligning oneself with the American Society of Exercise Physiologists and pursuing the ASEP Board Certification. This text explains what is expected from a healthcare professional and shows us that ASEP has established itself in that process. Dr. Boone also explains that we have even more work to do. The sooner we come together the sooner our professional opportunities and acceptance will recognized by society. He supports all of this with a wealth of research healthcare statistics that proves a need for a consolidated and accountable Profession of Exercise Physiologists.

Through his work with ASEP, he has given us our professional platform and with this new exercise medicine text, he has given us a treasure for professional practice. This text takes the reader through the meaning of “Professionalism of Exercise Physiology”, “Exercise Medicine”, and “Entrepreneurship” as each relates to the need for new thinking about chronic diseases, disabilities, and the future of Exercise Physiology as a healthcare profession.

Preface

Unfortunately, watching TV, surfing the Internet, and sitting for long hours have replaced more active pursuits. Millions of Americans are simply not moving enough to meet the minimum threshold for good health and longevity. Exercise physiologists have researched and highlighted this fact for decades. That is why they emphasize the importance of regular exercise in the prevention of chronic diseases associated with physical inactivity and a sedentary lifestyle. Heart disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, peripheral arterial disease, depression, several types of cancers, and osteoporosis can be treated or even prevented with properly prescribed exercise.

ASEP’s Exercise Medicine Text for Exercise Physiologists is designed to educate the reader about the evolution and significance of professionalism in exercise physiology, exercise medicine, and entrepreneurship as each relates to the need for new thinking about chronic diseases, disabilities, and the future of exercise physiology as a healthcare profession. It combines scientific principles and cardiovascular calculations that support its use in the development of safe, well-rounded, and individualized exercise programs to help clients/patients sleep better, reduce stress, maintain a healthy body weight, keep bones strong and joints healthy, decrease the risk for colon cancer, and improve mental function. This work demonstrates the importance of exercise medicine. It should help pave the way for the support and recognition of Exercise Physiologists in healthcare.
