Concepts of Physical Fitness: Active Lifestyles for Wellness, 10/e

New Features of This Edition

The focus of the new millennium is on the process. Healthy lifestyles, or "what a person does,"rather than "what a person can do,"constitutes process. If a person does the process (i.e., adopting a healthy lifestyle) positive changes will occur to the extent that change is possible for that specific person. As noted in the first concept of the book, lifestyles are the most important factors influencing health, fitness, and wellness. Healthy lifestyles (the processes) are also within a person's individual control. Any person can benefit from lifestyle change and any person can change a lifestyle. These lifestyle changes will make a difference in health, fitness, and wellness for all people.

The emphasis on lifestyle change in the tenth edition is consistent with the focus of national health objectives for the new millennium. Though the principal national health goals are to increase years and quality of life (products) for all people, the methods of accomplishing these goals focus on changing lifestyles. As we move into the new century, we must adopt a "new way of thinking" to help all people change their lifestyles to health, fitness, and wellness.
