Preparing for the future is what school is all about. Unfortunately, many students fail to see the importance of establishing healthy lifestyle habits during these crucial years. While they work hard to ensure their future financial health, many young people mistakenly believe they can wait until they’re older to worry about their physical and mental health.
Physical Activity for Health and Fitness begins by presenting students with medical evidence showing that a lifetime of physical activity will improve their fitness and enhance their quality of life. They’ll learn the importance of both cardiovascular and muscular fitness and discover how to develop healthy habits in these areas.
This new edition includes new art and references, updated figures and statistics, and practical charts and worksheets to enhance students’ learning experience.
