A Note from Editor-in-Chief Steven Keteyian

Summer is upon us and a good time to ask our clients and patients to really focus on fitness. As always, be sure to instruct them to modify their workouts in a manner that avoids the hottest and most humid parts of the day.

I’m pleased to report that the number of high quality papers submitted to the journal is tracking at a near record-breaking rate, allowing us to again publish four (instead of three) feature articles in this issue. The topics herein are quite diverse and begin with a very practical article on “Training Toys… Bells, Ropes and Balls-Oh My!” by Dixie Stanforth, Ph.D.; Jason Brumit, PT, Ph.D.; Nicholas Ratamess, Ph.D.; Whitley Atkins, M.Ed.; and me. This practical manuscript provides some unique programming options aimed at improving fitness and motivating our clients and patients.

The next feature is “Good Food, Health and Sustainability: An Introduction to Health Professionals,” by Nanna Lucia Meyer, Ph.D., FACSM. Dr. Meyer takes a deeper look at food choices and environmental sustainability. That paper is followed by an excellent article by Wayne L. Westcott, Ph.D., entitled “Build Muscle, Improve Health: Benefits Associated with Resistance Training.” As Dr. Westcott indicates, many of the health problems associated with aging are amenable to a sound resistance exercise training regimen. Finally, as university campuses start to plan their health and fitness activities for students and faculty for the upcoming academic year, we provide a timely article titled “Five Steps to Launching Exercise is Medicine® on Your Campus,” by Carena Winters, Ph.D., MPH and Robert E. Sallis, M.D., FACSM. A must read for those interested in bringing Exercise is Medicine® to their university campus.

As always, I again wish to highlight the high quality writings found in the regular departments and columns in this issue. Each providing a perspective from an individual with much experience in the health and fitness field.

Enjoy your summer and best wishes.

Sincerely,

Steven J. Keteyian, PhD
