Frederick W. Kasch, Ph.D. was a pioneer in a number of fields during his career in the Department of Physical Education at San Diego State University (SDSU). First, he founded the first Adult Fitness-Cardiac Rehabilitation Program where the participants exercised in a group format. That program became a model for university-based programs across the country. Second, he pioneered research that demonstrated the benefits of long-term, endurance exercise training on the cardiovascular system in healthy adult men. Additionally, he was one of the first to show the therapeutic effect of endurance exercise training for patients with hypertension and patients with heart disease. Third, he created new courses, and new laboratory and field “hands on” experiences for Physical Education graduate students at SDSU who had an interest exercise physiology, in general, and adult fitness, in particular. Dr. Kasch's pioneering work lives on in the careers of many of his former students.
