Description

Putting the New ACSM’s Pre-Activity Screening Guidelines into Practice

By JoAnn M. Eickhoff-Shemek, Ph.D., FACSM and Aaron C. Craig, Ph.D.

Research has shown that many fitness facilities are not implementing pre-activity screening procedures as

recommended or required by ACSM. As shown in our pilot study, implementing the new ACSM

screening criteria (algorithm) resulted in fewer physician referrals and made the screening process more

time efficient and easier to carry out than when we used the previous ACSM criteria. We believe these

major screening revisions will lead to an increase in the number of fitness facilities conducting screening

and thus enhance the safety of participants and professionalism in the field.
