The Gold Standard

We live in a sea of information, and often it seems as though we’re drowning rather than surfing! When it comes to exercise, it is vital to be able to discriminate fact from the latest fad. A better place than most to start investigating is here, at the American College of Sports Medicine, often thought of as being the creators of a ‘gold standard’ for a scientific approach to exercise and fitness.

Yes, they take money from questionable sources (Coca-Cola? Really??!) but at least there are double-blind, placebo-controlled trials reported in their peer reviewed journals. Happy browsing!
