Fitness Through Aerobics uses unique tools and strategies to put vital health and fitness information directly into the hands of readers. Using the most up-to-date fitness and wellness information on aerobic dance exercise, the Fifth Edition reflects current trends in group fitness by adding information and photographs for resistance exercises using weights. It also includes a discussion of other group fitness activities, such as group cycling and stair stepping. A list of web sites and new worksheets (such as BMI) make it even easier to access and apply information. For college instructors and students.
