Overview

LIFETIME PHYSICAL FITNESS AND WELLNESS, 14th Edition, provides students with current information, tools, and guidelines to implement and adhere to a lifetime physical fitness and wellness program. Hoeger and Hoeger encourage students to take a critical look at their current behaviors to help them identify and abandon negative habits and adopt and maintain healthy behaviors. The authors focus on teaching students how to take control of their personal lifestyles and make changes to promote overall health and wellness, and include easy steps and application activities to help students begin the process of behavior change. Optional online labs and other resources support students' understanding -- and their success in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

  • Chapter opening "Personal Profile" feature asks students a series of questions regarding the current status of their own fitness/wellness. This inventory draws students into the text by showing them immediately how their actions are related to their current level of health, and what steps the text will outline for behavior change. Students can build upon the profile as they read the chapter, as well as keep the results as a profile piece for later review.
  • This text integrates over 50 activities that promote active learning and assess students' fitness and wellness levels making the concepts more relevant to students' lives. At the end of many activities, critical-thinking questions encourage students to apply what they have learned to their own personal fitness and wellness goals.
  • "Behavior Modification Planning" boxes include bulleted information and research on popular topics that highlight ways students can change their fitness and wellness behavior. Topics include recognition of fad diet plans, cholesterol management, nutrition and cancer prevention, and anger management. Accompanying "Try It" critical thinking activities encourage students to put the recommended strategies and their own knowledge into action.
  • 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.
  • Tear-out reference cards provide practical information in a portable format. "For Easy Reference" cards list health information that students may use frequently, such as nutritional content for popular fast food menu options. "Check Yourself" cards provide checklists of positive health behaviors to help students assess their current behavior and they can track their progress toward better health throughout the semester and beyond.
  • "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.
