Published Reviews The Physiology of Training is a gem. I have already used, cited, referenced and recommended it to teaching colleagues; third year undergraduate and postgraduate students; personal trainers; and coaches, both in academia and within the Health and Fitness industry. I look forward to the other forthcoming titles within the series; its a tough act to follow!
