Reflecting current popular topics in group fitness, Fitness Through Aerobics, Ninth Edition covers a broad array of issues that speak to a wide range of aerobics instructors, and will engage students of every background and discipline. Bishop teaches steps and methodologies for performing all types of aerobic group exercises—as well as strength and flexibility exercises that contribute to proper technique—in a straightforward, accessible writing style.
The Ninth Edition is completely updated with videos that demonstrate proper exercise technique, new coverage of the latest group exercise activities, and new photos.
New edition of a textbook that provides important exercise information that is difficult for an instructor to convey in a filled gymasium. Topics include goal setting, clothing and equipment, rhythmic aerobics, toning exercises, exercises to avoid, warming up and cooling down, nutrition and weight control, and care and prevention of injuries. Includes tips, bolded key words, and tear-out worksheets on chapter topics. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
