LIFETIME PHYSICAL FITNESS AND WELLNESS was the first book in the field to cover both fitness and wellness in the same text. Now in its Eighth Edition, this proven text—with its uniquely strong emphasis on using behavior modification techniques to achieve healthy lifestyle habits—has been praised across the country for its ability to help students realize their highest potentials for health, fitness, and well-being. Each chapter guides students in developing a personalized physical fitness and wellness program by allowing them to chart and update their progress as they meet their goals. The Hoegers integrate activities throughout each chapter (rather than placing them at the ends of chapters) so students can complete each fitness and wellness experience as the concepts behind those experiences are introduced. Plus, four powerful resources—the PROFILE PLUS 2005 CD-ROM, PERSONAL DAILY LOG, INFOTRAC COLLEGE EDITION, and the HEALTH/FITNESS AND WELLNESS INTERNET EXPLORER—are all automatically packaged with this edition! PROFILE PLUS gives students unprecedented flexibility in making lifestyle changes by providing additional assessments, a behavior change plan, nutrition analysis tools, and exercise logs and prescriptions. It also includes interactive quizzing to help them master and remember key concepts. A PERSONAL DAILY LOG allows students to track their progress in achieving their personal goals. Included are tips for achieving test success, a variety of records and tables to track body composition and body mass index, exercise and strength training record forms, and more! The HEALTH/FITNESS AND WELLNESS INTERNET EXPLORER and four months of access to INFOTRAC COLLEGE EDITION provide students with additional resources for obtaining information about key topics. This all inclusive package gives students a wealth of tools to help them explore, experience, and better understand the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
