Dr. Werner W.K. Hoeger is a full-time professor and director of the Human Performance Laboratory at Boise State University. He is a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and is the recipient of the first 2004 Presidential Award for Research and Scholarship in the College of Education at Boise State University. Dr. Hoeger uses his knowledge and experiences to write engaging, informative books that thoroughly address today's fitness and wellness issues in a format accessible to students. In addition to LIFETIME PHYSICAL FITNESS AND WELLNESS, he has written several other textbooks for Thomson Wadsworth, including FITNESS AND WELLNESS, PRINCIPLES AND LABS FOR FITNESS AND WELLNESS, PRINCIPLES AND LABS FOR PHYSICAL FITNESS, WELLNESS: GUIDELINES FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, and WATER AEROBICS FOR FITNESS AND WELLNESS (with Terry-Ann Spitzer Gibson). Dr. Hoeger was the first author to write a college fitness textbook that incorporated the "wellness" concept and introduced the principle that to truly improve fitness and health and to achieve wellness, a person needs to go beyond the basic health-related components of physical fitness. As an innovator in the field, Dr. Hoeger has developed many fitness and wellness assessment tools, including fitness tests such as the modified sit and reach, total body rotation, shoulder rotation, muscular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, and soda pop coordination tests. Proving that he "practices what he preaches," at 48, he was the oldest male competitor in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. He raced in the sport of luge along with his 17-year-old son Christopher. This was the first time in Winter Olympics history that father and son competed in the same event.
