Editor's Note: In his 2005 Joseph B. Wolffe Memorial Lecture, Dr. Frank Booth, one of ACSM's most esteemed basic scientists, argued that researchers studying physical activity effects on health-related outcomes should adopt a new perspective when designing their studies. Dr. Booth's arguments were persuasive, passionate, and, merit our strong consideration. His perspective is summarized in this invited commentary.
