ASEPNewsletter is devoted to informative articles and news items about exercise physiology. It is a monthly magazine of news, opinions, exercise physiology professionals, and events that shape exercise physiology. While it contains views and opinions of the Editor who oversees the ASEP Internet Websites, visitors can have a voice as well. We welcome interested practitioners, researchers, and academicians to e-mail the Publisher their thoughts and ideas or to respond directly via the ASEP Public Forum.

  • You may also want to take a look at JC's  web site.  His world of exercise physiology!
  • Clinical aspects of exercise physiology.

  • -- Just Thinking --

    Sports medicine - exercise physiology - kinesiology!  Terms we grew up with, majored in, worked under, and written about, but does anyone know what each means. What is the definition of sports medicine? Is it the same as exercise physiology? If so, why? If not, what is the difference? Really, we "the members" of ASEP would like to know the differences.  First, begin with a definition of each and, second, identify the work conditions each is typically responsible for doing. Thanks. Oh yes, you can respond via the ASEP Public Forum or email and your comments "just as you have written" will be recorded in the next ASEPNewsletter.
