Publisher Comments:

Concepts of Physical Fitness: Active Lifestyles for Wellness provides readers with self-management skills necessary to adopt a healthy lifestyle. This well established text uses a proven conceptual format, brief concepts rather than chapters, to provide information in a useful and concise way, and is organized to focus on "process" or lifestyle changes with early coverage of planning so students can apply the concepts immediately.
