What is ASEP?
The ASEP Vision
1. To be recognized as the leading professional organization of American scholars and practitioners in the study and application of exercise physiology to fitness, health promotion, rehabilitation, and sports training.
2. The Society is dedicated to unifying all exercise physiologists in the United States and worldwide to promote and support the study, practice, teaching, research, and development of the exercise physiology profession.
3. Through proactive and creative leadership, the Society empowers its members to serve the public good by making an academically sound difference in the application of exercise physiology concepts and insights.
The Importance of a Vision
"Vision is more than what you see. Vision is opening your eyes -- and your mind's eye, as well -- to that inner place where you see and forsee, where you dream and imagine and create....You could be satisfied with the status quo. You could be content to leave things as they are. You could choose not to 'not the boat,' 'upset the apple cart,' or 'make waves.' You could repeat the sad and dangerous words, so often heard: 'But we've always done it this way.' But then you and your business would probably not improve, not progress, not prosper." --
Dosick, R.W. (1993). THE BUSINESS BIBLE: Ten Commandments for Creating an Ethical Workplace. New York, NY: William Morrow and Company, Inc., p. 29.
What is the Difference Between Exercise Science and Exercise Physiology?
Exercise science is a diverse field of study that may include sport psychologists, exercise physiologists, biomechanists, physical educators, and kinesiologists.
Exercise Physiology means the identification of physiological mechanisms underlying physical activity, the comprehensive delivery of treatment services concerned with the analysis, improvement, and maintenance of health and fitness, rehabilitation of heart disease and other chronic diseases and/or disabilities, and the professional guidance and counsel of athletes and others interested in athletics, sports training, and human adaptability to acute and chronic exercise.
Exercise Physiologist means a person who has an academic degree in exercise physiology, or who is certified by ASEP to practice exercise physiology [via the Exercise Physiologist Certified exam (EPC)], or who has a doctorate degree with an academic degree or emphasis in exercise physiology from an accredited college or university.
