Summary

Concepts in Fitness Programming presents comprehensive material about various aspects of exercise testing and prescription in a simple, straightforward manner. Intended for individuals who design exercise and fitness programs but who lack extensive background in fitness training, this book provides a wealth of knowledge beyond the basic "how to's" of fitness programming. Exercisers require some background in fitness and exercise-related injuries and nutrition. For safety, exerciser and instructor need to know the medical problems that limit exercise capacity or eliminate someone from safely exercising, and how drugs used for medical problems influence exercise. Background in medical terminology and the interrelationships of disease and exercise are useful for understanding exercise literature.
