"The main reason I became a teacher is because, while on earth, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, was a teacher. I am passionate about exercise physiology because as an applied natural science, it has become an important source of additional knowledge to the other natural sciences. Since exercise physiology is so different from its resting counterpart, its research contributions to the advancement of knowledge have been so significant, that exercise physiology has become a well respected applied natural science (it was an exercise physiologist who found that rather than producing lactic acid, the human body produces lactate). This new paradigm has been a major contribution of exercise physiology that has led to changes in chemistry and biology textbooks."
