from By Lynette L. Craft, Ph.D., FACSM


Lynette L. Craft, Ph.D., FACSM
Lynette L. Craft, Ph.D., FACSM, is the chief science officer (CSO) at ACSM. She earned her Ph.D. in kinesiology from Michigan State University and her master’s in exercise science from Arizona State University. She completed post-doctoral training at Boston University School of Medicine. In her role as CSO at ACSM, she provides day-to-day oversight for all scientific and research activities. This includes effectively communicating to members and key stakeholders the scientific and research mission of ACSM, its scientific priorities and opportunities for engagement. Further, she collaborates with staff and members to implement ACSM’s strategic plan related to science and research. In this capacity, she also facilitates the work of expert panels in all phases of developing ACSM Position Stands and other official pronouncements.

In February 2018, the Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee (PAGAC) released its Scientific Report to the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). That report summarized the scientific evidence on physical activity and health and was used to inform the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. ACSM was well-represented on the PAGAC—14 of the 17 committee participants are current ACSM members or fellows. more
