Overview

One of the most improvements in this second edition is that it places greater emphasis on the views of industry trade organizations and a wide variety of fitness associations. The result is a book that reflects a true consensus in the health and fitness industry, while still maintaining the high standards of the ACSM. ACSM's Health/Fitness Facility Standards and Guidelines (Second Edition) also has been restructured to that facility managers in every setting - worksites, clubs, hospitals, YMCAs, YWCAs, JCCs, government, schools, hotels, and spas - will have a clearer understanding of how to use the recommendations. The myriad standards and guidelines presented in the first edition have been consolidated into six standards and approximately 400 guidelines. The book's six standards represent an industry consensus in regard to designing and operating a safe and high-quality health/fitness facility. The accompanying guidelines are recommended specifications, policies, and procedures that can help facility operators enhance the level of service they provide to facility users.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
