Overview

For courses in Health and Fitness.

 

Strengthen students’ core knowledge of fitness and wellness

Total Fitness and Wellness gives students a solid foundation in fitness and wellness, while providing them with the tools they need to make healthy behavioral changes and lifestyle choices. The easy-to-use text provides students with a clear learning path through practical fitness information they can incorporate into their lives.

 

The 6th Edition presents current research and topics of student interest such as eating disorders, stress-management strategies, barefoot running, Pilates, diabetes and pre-diabetes, ergogenic dietary supplements, at-home fitness equipment, antioxidants, and emotional health. Total Fitness and Wellness now provides access to MyDietAnalysis -- a diet and activity tracking tool that gives students an easy way to analyze their physical activity and daily nutrient intake. MyDietAnalysis is powered by ESHA Research, accessible on all devices, and included at no extra charge with Mastering Health.

It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place, even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class — motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning.
