Certification of Exercise Physiologists

My recent post on the role of personal trainers in obesity management elicited a number of e-mail responses.

From the mail that came in, the following information is perhaps especially worth noting:

As many of you know, The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) is a voluntary organization composed of professionals interested and involved in the scientific study of exercise physiology, exercise biochemistry, fitness and health. On November 17, 2007 (at the national CSEP conference in London, Ontario) the following supplement was released: Advancing the Future of Physical Activity Measurement and Guidelines in Canada: a scientific review and evidence based foundation for the future of Canadian physical activity guidelines.

If you are a CSEP member, you will be receiving a hard copy of the supplement in the mail.

Hat Tip to Taniya Birbeck, Exercise Specialist, Capital Health Weight Wise Program, for bringing this to my attention.
