A Note from Editor-in-Chief Steven Keteyian

In April, I attended ACSM’s Health & Fitness Summit & Exposition and was again struck by the high level of enthusiasm from professionals and students interested in learning more about the science and practice of offering proper fitness and good nutrition in the community-based setting.

To further facilitate such learning, this issue of the Journal offers four outstanding feature articles for its readers in addition to a variety of informative columns. The first feature is from Nobuko Hongu, Ph.D., M.Ed., R.D. and co-workers. Their paper is titled “Tech Savvy: Mobile Technologies for Promoting Health and Physical Activity.” Staying with the technology theme, Jung-Min Lee, Ph.D.; Young-Won Kim, M.S.; and Gregory J. Welk, FACSM, review consumer-based monitors in the paper “Track It: Validity and Utility Consumer of Consumer Based Physical Activity Monitors.” Rounding out this issue, are two excellent papers, the first by Norberto Quiles, Ed.M., M.A. and Carol Ewing Garber, Ph.D., FACSM, addressing “Considerations and Precautions: Exercise Prescription for Health in HIV+ Individuals” and the second by David Chenoweth, Ph.D., FAWHP; David Hunnicutt, Ph.D.; and Robin Rager, Ph.D., FAWHP titled “Practical Implications: National Compensation Survey of Worksite Wellness Practitioners.”

In addition to the above, there are two recent changes to the Journal’s Editorial Board that I wish to point out. First, I would like to again welcome and thank Cary H. Wing, Ed.D., FACSM, for her first contribution of the Health & Fitness A to Z column, entitled “The BOSU Ball: Overview and Opportunities.” Welcome Cary! Additionally, I wanted to express my sincere thanks to the outgoing chairperson of ACSM's Committee on Certification and Registry Boards (CCRB), Deborah A. Riebe, Ph.D., FACSM, for her fine work on behalf of not only the committee, but also contributing a regular article to the Journal’s ACSM Certification column. Again, my sincere thanks to Dr. Riebe for all of her fine work and allow me to welcome her successor, William F. Simpson, Ph.D., FACSM. We look forward to Dr. Simpson’s contributions in the future.

As a side note, some of you might be interested in attending ACSM’s Conference on Integrative Physiology of Exercise this September in Miami Beach, Florida. I encourage you to visit http://www.acsm.org/attend-a-meeting/IPE2014 for more information or to register.

Enjoy the rest of your summer.

Sincerely,
