A Note from Editor-in-Chief Steven Keteyian

As you read further in this issue, you will notice that all of the feature articles pertain to one topic or theme. Going forward, the Journal’s use of a “themed” issue will occur once or twice each year and this issue, guest edited by Carl Foster, Ph.D., FACSM, is devoted to helping practitioners who have clients interested in transitioning from being a leisure jogger to a more serious long distance runner.

In addition to the above, it gives me great pleasure to announce that a new column will be added to the Journal beginning with the July/August Issue. This column, entitled “Health & Fitness A-Z,” will be authored by Associate Editor Cary H. Wing, Ed.D, FACSM, an individual who has much writing experience and is well connected in the health and fitness industry. Three times each year, Dr. Wing will address a specific topic and walk the reader through it from beginning to end. My hope is that in one concise article, the reader will appreciate the history, development, current issues, and what sits on the horizon for each topic that is covered.  It gives me great pleasure to be associated with the launching of this new column and, over time, I think it will do much to provide comprehensive education to all of our readers.

Finally, if you haven’t already made your plans, I encourage you to attend the 2014 ACSM Health & Fitness Summit & Exposition, April 1–4, 2014 in Atlanta. As in prior years, this conference is a primary means through which leaders in the health and fitness profession are able to disseminate new information to those working in the field. Along these same lines, allow me to draw your attention to the Web site for submitting topic proposals for ACSM’s Health & Fitness Summit & Exposition 2015, planned for March 31 – April 3 in Phoenix, Arizona. Check out www.acsmsummit.org for more information.

Although I am pleased with where the journal is headed and trust you’ll feel the same, I continue to welcome your feedback along the way.Sincerely,

Steven J. Keteyian, PhD
