Heyward and Gibson present this non-clinical set of guidelines for exercise physiologists, students, and personal trainers on exercise prescription and fitness evaluation. The first chapters discuss the relationship between physical activity, health, and disease, preliminary screening and risk assessment, and basics of promoting program adherence. Assessment principles and program design are then provided for cardiorespiratory fitness, muscular strength and endurance, weight and body composition management, flexibility, and balance. Several appendices give worksheets and method logs for various assessments. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
