Cardiorespiratory Fitness Registry Board Members
The Cardiorespiratory Fitness Registry Board is working to establish a national registry for cardiorespiratory fitness and will expand to be more inclusive of many measures from cardiopulmonary exercise tests. The group recently published its first report to provide reference standards for cardiorespiratory fitness for the US adult population. Several members of the Cardiorespiratory Fitness Registry Board are ACSM members and leaders. If your chapter is looking for keynote/major session presenters for an upcoming meeting, members of the board would be available to present on this topic. Please note that there is not any funding available from ACSM to support travel of these speakers. ACSM is simply making the Regional Chapters aware that these speakers have expressed an interest in presenting at upcoming meetings. For more information, contact Dr. Lenny Kaminsky.
