The Fitness Instructor's Handbook
A Professional's Complete Guide to Health and FitnessBook - 2014
"The Fitness Instructor's Handbook meets the needs of the wide audience of fitness professionals, aspiring trainers and individuals with a keen interest in fitness and sport. Morc Coulson discovered the sparsity of comprehensive references promoting industry professionalism. They had little practical information on designing gym-based cardiovascular and resistance exercise programs for clients. This second edition is updated and revised to address the needs of the "special populations" that trainers are seeing in greater numbers. This group includes children, older adults, those recovering from a stroke or heart attack, and sedentary, overweight, obese, pregnant or handicapped clients. There is also new information on diet and nutrition as well as safety and injury prevention, customer service, client screening, program design and exercise evaluation. All the references and recommended readings have been updated"--Amazon.
