Summary

From the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), this text provides the reader with the information necessary to develop skills for assessing an individual's health-related physical fitness. It provides a practical "how-to-do-it" approach for performing assessment skills effectively, and an understanding of the theory behind and the importance of each skill or assessment. This edition has a new chapter on postural analysis and body alignment assessments, new photographs of key assessments and techniques, and updated references to ACSM's Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription, Seventh Edition.
