Mission Statement

The American College of Sports Medicine advances and integrates scientific research to provide educational and practical applications of exercise science and sports medicine. Since 1954, ACSM has been leading the way in the scientific and public health aspects of physical activity, exercise science and sports medicine.  Today, ACSM provides services to more than 60,000 members and certified professionals in more than 90 countries.  Through its unified membership, ACSM brings together global experts in multiple disciplines from science to practice to policy, including education, medicine, research and health and fitness, to deliver real-world programs that are making a difference in people’s lives.

ACSM leads the way in several initiatives related to exercise science, sports medicine and physical activity.

The ACSM-led Exercise is Medicine® global health initiative now on six continents striving to make physical activity and exercise a standard part of a global disease prevention and treatment medical paradigm.

Another signature program, the ACSM American Fitness IndexTM, provides an evidence- and science-based measurement of the state of health and fitness at the community level throughout the U.S.

ACSM’s National Youth Sports Health & Safety Institute is dedicated to being the recognized leader and advocate for advancing and disseminating the latest research and evidence-based education, recommendations and policy to enhance the experience, development, health and safety of our youth in sports.

ACSM is a leading collaborator in the national Designed to Move initiative, which is focused on developing in all children a love of physical activity in the first ten years of life. ACSM supports the vision and two important calls to action: creating early positive experiences for children and integrating physical activity into everyday life.

ActivEarth is an innovative, global, science-informed, ACSM initiative intent on improving public health, the environment and the economy by promoting global change through active transportation.

Project Play, an initiative in which ACSM is a key partner, is a multi-stage effort providing the thought leadership to build “Sport for All, Play for Life” communities that foster a culture of health. A newly released report identifies eight key strategies that can be used to give all kids the opportunity to become active through sports.

And, ACSM is working to drive awareness of the Every Body Walk! 30 Minutes to Better Health initiative to clinicians and other medical professionals. This campaign is aimed at getting more Americans up and moving.
