What The Science of Fitness is About

Our mission at The Science of Fitness (SCI-FIT) is to help you come to grips with the fitness research and get a deeper understanding of the human body. We do this by improving your critical thinking skills and knowledge of fitness, nutrition, and health.

At The Science of Fitness, we write review articles, create study collections, interview researchers, and analyze studies. You will find plain language summaries at the top of every article, helping you understand the science without having to be an expert in the field. Scientific fitness research is often daunting in its complexity because it is written by scientists for scientists. We simplify the research and make it accessible.
