Robert A. Robergs is the Director of the Exercise Physiology Laboratories at The University of New Mexico where he is an Associate Professor. In addition to receiving his Ph.D. from Ball State University, he has also received masters degrees from Wake Forest University, and completed his preliminary graduate study at the University of Western Australia. His B.Ed. is from State College of Victoria. He is a past recipient of the Young Investigator Award from the College of Education at The University of New Mexico.A native of Melbourne in Australia, Dr. Robergs studied under Alan Morton, Paul Ribisl, and David Costill. His background is a mix of exercise physiology, exercise biochemistry, environmental physiology, and cardiac rehabilitation. As a student, his personal goal was to eventually direct an exercise physiology research laboratory. This was achieved in 1995 when he was named Director the Exercise Physiology Laboratories at The University of New Mexico. Since becoming the Director, the Center now includes a diverse array of equipment, and supports an internationally recognized graduate program in exercise science/physiology.Dr. Robergs co-founded the American Society of Exercise Physiologists (ASEP) in 1997 and became a fellow in 1998. He is currently on numerous ASEP committees, and is also Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Exercise Physiology--online ( Robergs is widely published in scholarly journals, including more than 40 research articles, and he has coedited a text in clinical exercise physiology. He is currently in the process of completing his second exercise physiology text (Fundamental Principles of Exercise Physiology: for Fitness, Performance, and Health) with McGraw-Hill.

Steven J Keteyian is the Program Director of Preventive Cardiology, Henry Ford Heart & Vascular Institute in Detroit. He is also an adjunct Associate Professor, Department of Physiology, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI and Clinical Professor of Exercise Science, School of Health Sciences, Oakland University, Rochester, MI. In addition to receiving his Ph.D. from Wayne State University, Dr. Keteyian received his masters degree from the University of Northern Colorado and his undergraduate degree from Grand Valley State Colleges. Born in Detroit, Dr. Keteyian began working at Henry Ford Hospital in 1981, where the focus of his research and clinical duties currently involve patient's with heart failure. In addition, he is actively involved with human performance issues and the role of exercise and physical activity in the primary and secondary prevention of disease. Dr. Keteyian, is the founding and current editor of Clinical Exercise Physiology, a journal devoted to the application of exercise physiology across the spectrum of chronic diseases. He is a member of the Board of Trustees and Fellow of the American College of Sports medicine; a member of the American Physiological Society; and a member of the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. Dr. Keteyian has published more than 40 articles and chapters in books. His involvement with this textbook is his third academic endeavor for graduate and undergraduate students entering the field of exercise physiology. Dr. Keteyian also writes a weekly column on Health and Fitness in the Detroit News.
