Personal Fitness: Looking Good Feeling Good

Grade Levels: High School



Physical fitness is not solely based on athletic ability, and Personal Fitness: Looking Good / Feeling Good 5th Edition stresses this aspect. One's personal well-being is just that -- personal. It is achieved through understanding how to accomplish short-term and long-term health goals, weeding out mass media fallacies, and establishing a personal fitness program based on nutrition, stress management, and exercise--all of which are found in Personal Fitness, 5th Edition.

All-Inclusive Wraparound Teacher Edition  

The most noticeable and exciting enhancement to the 5th edition of Personal Fitness: Looking Good/Feeling Good is the inclusion of three technology CD-ROMs/DVD (a $249 value FREE!) in the back of the Teacher Edition, which is now a full-color wraparound edition. The included CDs/DVD now provide everything a teacher needs to successfully implement this fun-filled program, all in one easy-to-maneuver package.
