The American College of Sports Medicine was founded in 1954 by a small group of physical educators and physicians who recognized that health problems were associated with certain lifestyle choices, especially smoking and lack of exercise. Since then, members from all professional backgrounds have applied their knowledge, training and dedication in sports medicine and exercise science to promote healthier lifestyles for people around the globe: https://www.acsm.org/.
