LIFETIME PHYSICAL FITNESS AND WELLNESS was the first book in the field to cover both fitness and wellness in the same text. Now in its Ninth Edition, this proven text -- with its uniquely strong emphasis on using behavior modification techniques to achieve healthy lifestyle habits -- has been praised across the country for its ability to help students realize their highest potentials for health, fitness, and well-being. Each chapter guides students in developing a personalized fitness and wellness program by allowing them to chart and update their progress as they meet their goals. The Hoegers integrate activities throughout each chapter (instead of at the end of chapters) so students can complete each fitness and wellness experience as the concepts are introduced. It doesn't stop there! Three powerful resources -- the PROFILE PLUS 2007 CD-ROM, PERSONAL DAILY LOG, and INFOTRAC COLLEGE EDITION -- are all automatically packaged with this edition of the Hoegers' text! PROFILE PLUS gives students unprecedented flexibility in making lifestyle changes by providing additional assessments, a behavior change plan, nutrition analysis tools, and exercise logs and prescriptions. It also includes interactive quizzes to help students master and remember the concepts presented in the text. A PERSONAL DAILY LOG allows students to track their progress toward goals they may set for themselves. Included also are suggestions for achieving test success, a variety of records and tables to track fitness activities such as body composition, body mass index, aerobic and strength training logs, and much more! INFOTRAC COLLEGE EDITION provides students with additional resources for obtaining information about topics discussed in the course. This all inclusive package gives students a wealth of tools to help them explore, experience, and better understand the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
