Default Encyclopedia Dictionary of Fitness?

Anyone know of an encyclopedia or dictionary with terms and definitions pertaining to fitness? ie, metabolic, interval, lactic acid...and so forth?

I can't hink of a single resource that would cover it all because a number of those terms are used differently by various parts of the fitness industry.

Any of the major textbooks on training should have a good glossary in them though.

I saw one the other day in a bookshop. It was quite small and not that great. A kettlebell for instance was defined as being a handle attached to a non fixed weight. It made it sound like a morning star.

I'll look out for it again and get the title.

That it is the next big thing: morning star training... you could ask Stan Pike if he is willing to build some morning star prototypes. This could be hot, really hot...
