Revel for Personal Health and Fitness is designed to help you think more about your health and wellness. Ultimately, my goal is for you to reflect more deeply on obvious and less obvious health related topics. Most of us know we should eat better, be more physically active, sit less, manage our stress, take care of our mental health, practise safe sex, and so on, yet we do not do these things as often as we should. If you are ready to become more aware of your health and wellness and are willing to make decisions that foster it, then this book will provide the stimulation and knowledge you need to get you there. Small changes maintained over time in our attitudes and behaviours will allow us to reach higher levels of physical and mental health and wellness.

Personalize Learning with Revel

We are excited in the first edition, to leverage Revel, an interactive eText platform that replaces the traditional text with an engaging learning experience that prepares students for class. Revel presents an  affordable, seamless blend of author-created digital text, media, and assessment based on learning science. With Revel, students are able to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience – anytime, anywhere, on any device, both online and offline.
