  • FITNESS AND WELLNESS is a concise option for instructors who want a core text without extensive labs or assessments. In addition to a full ancillary package, the text includes short chapter activities designed to help students complete assessments that focus on achieving personal health and wellness goals.
  • Behavior modification is a hallmark of the Hoegers’ fitness and wellness series--and an integral theme of FITNESS AND WELLNESS. It is introduced early, then related to other topics throughout the text with Behavior Modification Planning boxes that give practical tips on how to effectively transition from current habits to the desired health behaviors.
  • Inspiring "Real Life Stories" in each chapter use first person narratives to describe how students have made positive health changes in their own lives, including the challenges they faced and the strategies they used to overcome them.
  • A unique Chapter 9, "Relevant Questions and Answers About Fitness and Wellness," uses a question-and-answer format to address timely issues and common misconceptions related to physical fitness and wellness.
  • "Assess Your Knowledge" multiple-choice review questions at the end of each chapter focus on core concepts and allow students to evaluate what they have learned. Answers are provided at the end of the book.
  • "Assess Your Behavior" sections at the end of each chapter assess students’ current behavior as it relates to chapter topics and highlight areas they need to change to improve their fitness and wellness.
  • "Frequently Asked Questions" address common issues, beliefs, and concerns most often expressed by students and connect the answers to the chapter concepts.
