Through thirteen editions, Concepts of Physical Fitness has proven itself as the most trusted text in the area of fitness and wellness, providing readers with the self-management skills necessary to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Its time-tested activity labs and logs help students acquire skills that make a positive difference for lifelong health, fitness, and wellness. The text's proven conceptual format (offering brief "concepts" rather than chapters) presents information in a useful and concise way, and its focus on “process” or lifestyle changes, with early coverage of planning, enables students to apply the concepts immediately. It is now available in three versions at the same time, each offering a distinct topical emphasis.
