    Durante más de 30 años, Fisiología del ejercicio. Nutrición, rendimiento y salud ha ayudado a más de 350.000 estudiantes a construir una base sólida sobre los principios científicos subyacentes a la fisiología del ejercicio. Esta 8.ª edición se ha actualizado con las últimas investigaciones en el campo para facilitar la comprensión y aportar una cobertura actualizada de cómo la nutrición, la transferencia de energía, y el entrenamiento físico afectan el rendimiento humano.
    La nueva edición mantiene una estructura de ocho secciones, con una sección introductoria sobre los orígenes de la fisiología del ejercicio. El final " en el horizonte " la sección y su capítulo han cambiado de una adenda a un capítulo numerado, un reflejo de la casa de la biología molecular como una parte establecida de la ciencia del ejercicio . La octava edición también ha sufrido un cambio de imagen de arte completa. La mayoría de las cifras existentes se han rediseñado para ofrecer compatibilidad con las ilustraciones de nueva creación.
