About the Editor
Charles M. Tipton, PhD, is an active emeritus professor of physiology at the University of Arizona. He received a PhD in physiology from the University of Illinois in 1962. He retired after 35 years of directing exercise physiology laboratories that investigated physiological mechanisms associated with the effects of acute and chronic exercise. He is recognized as a leading authority of exercise physiology.
Professor Tipton taught physiology and exercise physiology courses to undergraduate, graduate, medical, and professional students at the University of Iowa and the University of Arizona and mentored 21 PhD students at these locations. He has written, coauthored, or edited six books, 33 chapters and proceedings, and approximately 18 articles. In addition, he served as editor in chief of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise and was an associate editor of the Journal of Applied Physiology for nearly a decade. He has been both member and chair of select National Institutes of Health (NIH) study sections and of several American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) research committees. A past president of ACSM, Professor Tipton has been appointed to many microgravity advisory committees that include the NASA Review Panel on Space Medicine and Countermeasures, the External Advisory Committee for the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI), and the Congress-directed National Research Council Steering Committee on Recapturing a Future for Space Exploration. For his research and professional endeavors, he received Honor Awards from the ACSM and from the Environmental and Exercise Physiology Section of the American Physiological Society. Fellow Tipton also received the Clark W. Hetherington Award from the National Kinesiology Academy.
“This book is the first to focus on the history of exercise physiology. The content is rich and well supported by the most pertinent findings from the field, both historical and current.”
--Doody’s Book Review (5-star review)
“It packs in tables, charts, bibliographic references, and plenty of detail and it’s filled with important insights for any who want to better understand the technical relationship between exercise and the body’s functioning, making it a pick for sports and health collections alike.”
