Lifetime Physical Fitness and Wellness: A Personalized Program
Find in a Library
Written by a noted authority in the field, LIFETIME PHYSICAL FITNESS AND WELLNESS, 10e, delivers thorough, balanced, and up-to-date coverage that equips students with the theory and tools needed to make positive health behavior choices now and throughout their lives. Werner Hoeger is routinely praised for his ability to include photos and descriptive examples that help students visualize the concepts and easily relate to them. The text also personalizes the information and shows students how to relate the content of the text and activities to their individual needs. Students quickly see that there is something to learn about fitness and wellness concepts, that the material is interesting, and that there are easy steps to starting positive behavior changes. The text's unique design integrates activities throughout each chapter--as opposed to including only end-of-chapter exercises. This innovative layout allows students to learn core concepts and immediately apply their knowledge to self-review and application activities, followed by more concepts and more activities. By focusing on information and its practical application, the text leaves time for instructors to get students out of the classroom to complete other activity-based assignments. LIFETIME PHYSICAL FITNESS AND WELLNESS features the latest research, including the new ACSM Guidelines. It also includes a wide assortment of exciting teaching and learning resources, such as the PowerLecture CD-ROM and CengageNOW™--an online resource that enables instructors to make assignments and track progress easily; it also provides pre- and post-tests, personalized study plans, activities, labs, and personal change planners for students.
