Now in its fifth edition, Physical Fitness continues to take a positive, light-hearted, and realistic approach to promoting exercise as a way for living a life of health and fitness. As always, emphasis is placed on presenting the basic information on physical fitness, allowing the student to choose a fitness program which is appropriate to his/her individual lifestyle. Based on scientific research as well as the collective professional experience of the authors, the text includes coverage of a variety of physical activity programs, ranging from beginning to advanced. Attention is given to programs that are reasonable in terms of time commitment and personal abilities, especially for students who are not athletically inclined. The programs presented focus on health-related fitness components, including muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and cardiorespiratory fitness.
