From the Back Cover:

The key to health and wellness requires two simple traits: Basic physical ability, and the commitment to exercise that ability on a regular, permanent basis. The knowledge about aerobics presented in this book will enhance the reader/participant's ability to 1) understand the important relationships between regular exercise, health and wellness, 2) perform exercises safely and correctly, 3) maximize the training effects of exercise, and 4) take control of planning and executing a lifetime fitness plan.

This book puts essential health and fitness information directly into the hands of readers. Topics covered in the book include wellness, principles and concepts of fitness, guidelines for specific needs such as asthma and pregnancy, descriptions and photographs of specific exercises, nutrition and weight control and injury prevention and care. Step, slide, aqua, combination bench, interval, circuit, low-, high-, and combination aerobics are here, along with body-toning exercise, both with and without resistance equipment. Aerobics instructors, health enthusiasts, and anyone who makes aerobic exercise and/or active fitness part of their daily lifestyle.
