Abstract

Over the past several months, the ACSM Certification column has provided some level of insight in regard to something happening within the Committee on Certification and Registry Boards. In 2019, our focus will shift to a case study approach that will highlight important concepts pertaining to exercise prescriptions. Many of the principles will be familiar to you as a practitioner, and others may not be as clear. Here, we hope to clarify some of those and provide opportunities to expand your knowledge, as well as the application of those concepts. In addition to this column, we will review and provide additional interpretation of this initial case presentation in an interactive workshop both Editor-in-Chief Brad A. Roy, Ph.D., FACSM, and I will be conducting at ACSM's International Health & Fitness Summit titled "Prescreening, Programming, and Everything In Between: Interactive Case Study Scenarios." So, if you are attending the conference, make sure to stop by (Friday, March 22 from 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., or on Saturday, March 23 from 2:45 to 4:15 p.m.), and if you are not, consider attending this great opportunity to meet and interact with other professionals in the field. It is going to be a great Health & Fitness Summit!
