Dr. Anthony (Tony) Kaleth received his Ph.D. in Clinical Exercise Physiology from Virginia Tech University and is a Professor in the School of Physical Education and Tourism Management at IUPUI. He is an accomplished classroom instructor, having received several teaching awards, and is actively involved in both undergraduate and graduate research. Dr. Kaleth is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and has been a contributor to recent editions of the ACSM’s Resource Manual for Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription and Resources for Clinical Exercise Physiology. He holds multiple health/fitness and clinical exercise credentials from ACSM and has over 20 years of experience in cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, health/fitness programming, and conducting research in applied and clinical exercise physiology. Professionally, Dr. Kaleth serves as a reviewer for several recognizable professional journals, has published several book chapters, and has been invited to present on numerous topics related to exercise and chronic disease. He also has been successful in securing external funding, and his research activities have resulted in over 40 peer-reviewed abstracts and publications. The majority of Dr. Kaleth’s research activities involve exercise testing and programming, particularly for individuals diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea and fibromyalgia.
