Viewpoints presented in SMB commentaries reflect opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect positions or policies of ACSM.

Martijn F. Maessen, M.Sc., is a Ph.D. student at the Department of Physiology at the Radboudumc, Nijmegen, the Netherlands. He has focused his doctoral research on the impact of lifelong exercise training on cardiovascular health by conducting a mixture of epidemiological and physiological studies.

Dick H.J. Thijssen, Ph.D., is professor in cardiovascular physiology at the Liverpool John Moores University and Radboud University Medical Center. His research explores the impact of exercise training and physical (in)activity in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Specifically, he focuses on understanding hemodynamic stimuli (e.g., shear stress) to mediate vascular adaptation in response to training and to identify factors moderating these effects (e.g., older age).

Maria. T.E. Hopman, Ph.D., FASCM, is professor of integrative physiology at the Department of Physiology, Radboudumc, Nijmegen and at Wageningen University, The Netherlands. The overall goal of her research is to improve health and to understand the concept of vitality of individuals as they age from conception to death by unraveling the mechanisms that explain the relationship between inactivity and the development of chronic diseases, as well as exercise, food and health.

This commentary presents the authors’ views on the topic of the research article that they and their colleagues had published in the January 2017 issue of
Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise® (MSSE). more
