ACSM extends its condolences to the family of Larry Golding, Ph.D., FACSM, who passed away May 14 at the age of 92.
Larry was a beloved member and fellow emeritus of ACSM and a major influencer in the health and fitness community. He served the profession and ACSM for more than 50 years. Larry joined ACSM in 1961 and was a highly active member, serving on the ACSM Board of Trustees, Membership Committee, and several certification committees. Dr. Golding leaves a tremendous legacy for the fitness profession. He was the founding editor-in-chief of ACSM’s Health & Fitness Journal®
and served as chair of ACSM’s Health & Fitness Summit Program Planning Committee for 12 years. He was also an active member and past president of ACSM’s Southwest chapter and received its Recognition Award. A prolific author, Dr. Golding wrote a number of manuals and guides, including the Fitness Professionals' Guide to Musculoskeletal Anatomy and Human Movement.
In recognition of his many contributions, the Lawrence A. Golding Student Health/Fitness Scholarship was created in his honor. Our thoughts and prayers are with Larry’s family.
