Overview

Client-Centered Exercise Prescription, Second Edition, will help fitness professionals listen to their clients, assess their interests, and prescribe exercise that will work for them. The text maintains the first edition's focus on the individual by discarding the “one-program-fits-all” blueprint and emphasizing instead a personalized approach in which unique programs are designed to meet the interests and needs of each client.

This edition is extensively revised, with substantial new material on activity counseling, client motivation, and step-by-step prescription models, which are directly linked to program design. The models facilitate fitness professionals' ability to make informed, client-centered decisions and address the following issues:
-Establishing rapport and increasing adherence by prescribing exercise programs that match clients' desires, needs, and lifestyles

-Understanding clients' unique psychological needs and using that information to keep them motivated and on track

-Integrating principles and strategies for client-centered assessment and prescription that will enable fitness professionals to address and monitor clients' needs both as they are originally presented and as they evolve over time

-Detailing the competencies of exercise demonstration, design modification, and follow-up monitoring

-Applying strategies for treating and preventing overuse injuries so that clients avoid injury and frustration, thereby avoiding withdrawal from the program
The models in Client-Centered Exercise Prescription, Second Edition, include activity counseling, cardiovascular conditioning, resistance training, weight management, exercise design, and program demonstration and modification, as well as the much-neglected area of assessment and treatment for muscle balance. The text explains the vital role that muscle balance plays in maintaining musculoskeletal health and teaches how to recognize and treat muscle imbalance before it causes serious damage. Reproducible worksheets—ranging from informational forms for clients to checklists and prescription cards for professionals—facilitate the use of the models to make exercise prescription easy and precise. Illustrated handouts of stretches and exercises for specific injuries are also included. These exercises can be incorporated into the client's program, and the handouts can be photocopied for clients to use as a guide for properly performing the exercises at home.

The second edition of Client-Centered Exercise Prescription is an outstanding resource for all professionals and students interested in learning to prescribe exercise for each client's unique and changing needs. To help students grasp the concepts presented, many pedagogical aids, sidebars, and checklists have been added. Competencies are listed at the beginning of each chapter, and icons in the margins identify the information crucial for the certified personal trainer program certification of the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP-CPT). The upgrades to the text also include extensive illustrations, examples, and case studies that demonstrate the practical application of concepts so that students can use them in real-life situations. The result is a text that clearly presents a unique, personalized approach to prescribing exercise and to helping clients adopt, enjoy, and maintain active lifestyles.
