About this title


Publisher's Note: Products purchased from 3rd Party sellers are not guaranteed by the Publisher for quality, authenticity, or access to any online entitlements included with the product.

Focusing on the specific needs of people with a certain disease, condition, or stage of life, this book discusses the special fitness and nutritional needs of various populations. Not only are overall health, fitness, and exercise recommendations discussed, but anatomy and physiology is covered to promote understanding of changes that occur among body systems as diseases or conditions develop. This text focuses on building appropriate exercise programs, physiological changes associated with various conditions, important precautions during exercise, outcome expectations, and basic nutritional considerations for various populations who frequently seek the services of a health and fitness professional. This book will serve as a comprehensive course text for students enrolled in personal training programs and students pursuing health/fitness professional degrees.


School of Recreation and Sports Sciences, Ohio University, Michael R. Kushnick, PhD, HFS, Assistant Professor of Exercise Science -- I believe the...textbook is perfectly suited to health fitness practitioners who may have less current physiologic background?they are further removed from their training and have more "on the job training" and less course work in biology and physiology. University of Florida, Christine Stopka, PhD, Professor, Department of Health Education and Behavior University of Florida -- "The text reads so easily and smoothly. It is not tedious. It reads quickly but is still packed with content. It is a joy to read and makes learning fun." Chatham University, Carena Winters-Hart, PhD, MPH, Assistant Professor, Department of Physical Therapy and Exercise Science -- "This text is ideal for undergraduate exercise science students and those who are independently working in the personal training field."
