Many patients with atherosclerotic disease are also at risk for an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Exercise training in these patients can be useful but there may be safety concerns. This review addresses these concerns and answers important questions.

Determining the risk:benefit ratio for athlete screening for cardiovascular abnormalities is controversial. This review provides information to educate the reader on this topic.

Using Pedometers to Promote Physical Activity Among Clinical Populations
Yuri Feito and Anthony Musto
Journal of Clinical Exercise Physiology. 2012;1(1):15-20. | Download PDF

Several studies have shown that pedometers can provide valid and reliable measures of physical activity habits, are easy to use, and cost-effective. This review provides a rationale for the use of pedometers in clinical exercise programs and presents recommendations for their use.

An Evidence-Based Review of Exercise and Metabolic Syndrome

Although the concept of metabolic syndrome is not new, its definition continues to evolve and has resulted in various population estimates. This review describes the population estimates for metabolic syndrome, associated risk factors, and the impact of exercise training.

Super super morbidly obese is defined as a body mass index (BMI) > 60 kg•m-2. Unfortunately this segment of the obese population continues to grow. This paper reviews a unique strategy successfully implemented in a person with a baseline BMI of >100 kg•m-2.


Licensure of Clinical Exercise Physiologists

Point/Counterpoint will address topics with contrasting views in order to help the clinical exercise physiologist shape his or her own opinion. To kick-off this section it was felt that there was no topic more appropriate than licensure of clinical exercise physiologists. Two teams of authors were chosen to express their views of the need or likelihood of licensure. Each team was asked to provide 1,500–2,000 words to make their case. Once complete, each team was given the opportunity to review and provide a written rebuttal of the comments presented by the other. It should be noted that the nature of this topic makes an evidence-based discussion difficult to develop. As a result, it is difficult for the authors to avoid depending on opinion/perception.
