Summary

Lifetime Physical Fitness and Wellness was innovative from the beginning as it was the first book in the market to cover both fitness and wellness. The new eleventh edition continues that tradition of innovation with its strong emphasis on using behavior change techniques to achieve healthy lifestyle habits and its close integration with online resources that provide interactive opportunities to extend learning beyond the text.

The authors' emphasis throughout the book is on teaching students how to take control of their personal lifestyles and make changes to promote overall health and wellness. In order to achieve this goal, the authors personalize the information to show students how content relates to their individual lives and provide easy steps to help students begin the process of behavior change.

This textbook encourages readers to participate in learning through in-chapter activities that relate content to real-life and guided development of personalized fitness and wellness programs. Take control of your own fitness and wellness with Lifetime Physical Fitness and Wellness.

Very simple and informative. April 14, 2011

I just want to say thank you to ecampus for shipping the item fast! I needed this textbook before I took a test in 3 days and it was here before the day of the test when I only purchased the textbook a few days before! Book arrived in the appropriate time and was in the condition it was stated on the website. This textbook is easy to read and has relevant information about health and fitness. Highly recommend.
