A Primer for the Exercise
Christopher Scott PhD
University of Southern Maine
Chris has spent over 30 years as a working exercise physiologist: within the fitness industry, as a Research Associate at the Cooper Institute for Aerobics Research and in clinical medicine within two cardiology and pulmonary practices.
Chris’s research agenda has focused on the determination of energy costs of strength, speed, and power related activities and the immediate recovery from those activities. He is the sole author of a textbook on the subject: “A Primer for the Exercise and Nutrition Sciences: Thermodynamics, Bioenergetics, Metabolism” (Human Press, 2008). In a 5-star ranking this textbook was recommended for "...its exposition of the thermodynamics of living systems and… the concluding deliberations on energy expenditures during different physiological states are thought-provoking."
Chris’s service has included: Institutional Research Boards (IRB), Research Council, College Peer Review, co-Director of Thinking Matters (a student research symposium) and former Chair of the Exercise, Health and Sport Science department. His BS was from Springfield College, MS from the University of Arizona and he holds a PhD in Zoology and Physiology from the University of Wyoming.
