About the Author:

Dr. Werner W.K. Hoeger a professor emeritus of the Department of Kinesiology at Boise State University. He remains active in research and continues to lecture in the areas of exercise physiology, physical fitness, and wellness. He is a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and also of the Research Consortium of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance. Dr. Hoeger is the recipient of the first 2004 Presidential Award for Research and Scholarship in the College of Education at Boise State University. Dr. Hoeger uses his knowledge and experiences to write engaging, informative books that thoroughly address today's fitness and wellness issues in a format accessible to students. In addition to PRINCIPLES AND LABS FOR PHYSICAL FITNESS, he has written several other textbooks for Cengage Learning, including Fitness and Wellness, Principles and Labs for Fitness and Wellness, Lifetime Physical Fitness and Wellness, Wellness: Guidelines for a Healthy Lifestyle, and Water Aerobics for Fitness and Wellness (with Terry-Ann Spitzer Gibson). Dr. Hoeger was the first author to write a college fitness textbook that incorporated the "wellness" concept and introduced the principle that to truly improve fitness and health and to achieve wellness, a person needs to go beyond the basic health-related components of physical fitness. As an innovator in the field, Dr. Hoeger has developed many fitness and wellness assessment tools, including fitness tests such as the modified sit and reach, total body rotation, shoulder rotation, muscular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, and soda pop coordination tests. Proving that he "practices what he preaches," at 48, he was the oldest male competitor in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. He raced in the sport of luge along with his 17-year-old son Christopher. This was the first time in Winter Olympics history that father and son competed in the same event.

Dr. Lori Waite Turner is an Associate Professor of Health Science in the College of Education and Health Professions at the University of Arkansas. Dr. Turner holds four degrees including a Ph.D. from The University of Alabama, a Master's Degree from Florida State University, another Master's Degree from Florida International University, and a B.S. degree from Florida State University. She is also a Registered Dietitian and prior to coming to the University of Arkansas in 1997, she worked for several years as a dietitian in hospital settings. Dr. Turner is involved with several organizations, including the American Academy of Health Behavior, where she is on the Board of Directors and Chair of Membership and Development Committee; American Society for Bone and Mineral Research; American Alliance for Health, Physical Education Recreation and Dance; and the American Dietetic Association. Her honors and awards include Outstanding Research Award for College of Education and Health Professions (2002) and Outstanding Teaching Award for Department of Health Science, Kinesiology, Recreation and Dance (1998-1999). Dr. Turner has authored or co-authored over 50 publications and presented in excess of 60 presentations at international, national, regional and state conferences in her academic areas of interest. Dr. Turner is the co-author of the Thomson Wadsworth text, WELLNESS: GUIDELINES FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, Fourth Edition. She is also involved in developing, implementing and evaluating osteoporosis prevention programs for college-age and middle-age women. Her work regarding the bone health benefits of yard work has generated tremendous interest nationally and internationally.

Brent Hafen is a former professor of Health in the College of Health and Human Performance at Brigham Young University.
