Description

Get Fit, Stay Well! Brief Edition meets you where they are and gives you the targeted, personal guidance you need to get them where they want to be.

 

Already the most modern, student-centric, action-plan-oriented fitness & wellness textbook on the market, the Second Edition of Get Fit, Stay Well! Brief Edition takes its mission a step further by becoming the most personalized and proactive book on the market as well. The Second Edition maintains the highly praised hallmarks of the first edition—integrated case studies, three-pronged labs, a fresh graphical approach, and extensive strength training and flexibility photos and videos—and adds to them a coaching component in the form of progressive personal fitness plans, expanded exercise video options, and interactive media to get you started, keep you motivated, and take you to the next level in their own fitness & wellness. For instructors, the second edition provides more course management capability and expanded resources, offering even greater assistance in reaching students where they are and helping them bridge the gap between what they know and how they act. The Brief Edition contains chapters 1-10 of the "full edition" of Get Fit, Stay Well!, with a focus on fitness topics, nutrition, weight, stress, and preventing cardiovascular disease.
