About this title


Most people realize that physical activity can help them look and feel good. But with so much hype and so many false claims about exercise today, it's difficult to know the real benefits and risks.

In The Exercise-Health Connection, Dr. David Nieman sets the record straight. He presents the bottom line on what exercise can and cannot do to benefit personal health.

Nieman examines how major diseases and health afflictions can be prevented and controlled by appropriate exercise programs. With the help of a question and answer format, he reveals what the latest research says about the benefits and risks of exercise on such conditions as:

- coronary heart disease,
- cancer,
- stroke,
- diabetes,
- osteoporosis,
- arthritis,
- low back pain,
- asthma,
- infection,
- high blood pressure,
- obesity,
- and more.

This comprehensive, no-nonsense guide also devotes special attention to physical fitness and activity issues specific to children, teenagers, women, and the elderly. The book answers such important questions as 'Does physical activity improve the health of children and youth and carry over into adulthood?,' 'Can too much exercise be harmful to women?,' and 'Is exercise as beneficial for older people as it is for younger people?'

An excellent reference for individuals interested in fitness, health fitness professionals, and physical educators, The Exercise-Health Connection cuts through the hype and presents the true benefits and risks of exercise.

From the Publisher:

"The book is an inspiring one for those who have health and fitness goals in addition to artistic goals in pursuing dance, since it strongly documents, through scientific research, the health benefits of physical activity."

Florence Tsu Sinay Dance Teacher Now November 1998

"Health fitness professionals frequently encounter questions about how exercise will help (or might hurt) a client who has a disease condition or is at special risk for a chronic disease. In The Exercise-Health Connection, David Nieman helpfully reviews the latest scientific knowledge in plain English and has organized it for easy reference under nine headings, seven risk factors, and three life-cycle groups."

Edward H. Pitts Founder and Co-publisher Fitness Management magazine
