About this book
Client-Centered Exercise Prescription, Second Edition,will help fitness professionals listen to their clients, assess their interests, and prescribe exercise that will work for them. The text maintains the first edition's focus on the individual by discarding the "one-program-fits-all" blueprint and emphasizing instead a personalized approach in which unique programs are designed to meet the interests and needs of each client. This edition is extensively revised, with substantial new material on activity counseling, client motivation, and step-by-step prescription models, which are directly linked to program design. The models facilitate fitness professionals'ability to make informed, client-centered decisions and address the following issues: -Establishing rapport and increasing adherence by prescribing exercise programs that match clients'desires, needs, and lifestyles -Understanding clients'unique psychological needs and using that information to keep them motivated and on track -Integrating principles and strategies for client-centered assessment and prescription that will enable fitness professionals to address and monitor clients'needs both as they are originally presented and as they evolve over time -Detailing the competencies of exercise demonstration, design modification, and follow-up monitoring -Applying strategies for treating and preventing overuse injuries so that clients avoid injury and frustration, thereby avoiding withdrawal from the program The models in Client-Centered Exercise Prescription, Second Edition,include activity counseling, cardiovascular conditioning, resistance training, weight management, exercise design, and program demonstration and modification, as well as the much-neglected area of assessment and treatment for muscle balance. The text explains the vital role that muscle balance plays in maintaining musculoskeletal health and teaches how to recognize and treat muscle imbalance before it causes serious damage. Reproducible worksheetsranging from informational forms for clients to checklists and prescription cards for professionalsfacilitate the use of the models to make exercise prescription easy and precise. Illustrated handouts of stretches and exercises for specific injuries are also included. These exercises can be incorporated into the client's program, and the handouts can be photocopied for clients to use as a guide for properly performing the exercises at home. The second edition of Client-Centered Exercise Prescriptionis an outstanding resource for all professionals and students interested in learning to prescribe exercise for each client's unique and changing needs. To help students grasp the concepts presented, many pedagogical aids, sidebars, and checklists have been added. Competencies are listed at the beginning of each chapter, and icons in the margins identify the information crucial for the certified personal trainer program certification of the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP-CPT). The upgrades to the text also include extensive illustrations, examples, and case studies that demonstrate the practical application of concepts so that students can use them in real-life situations. The result is a text that clearly presents a unique, personalized approach to prescribing exercise and to helping clients adopt, enjoy, and maintain active lifestyles.

    Great Portable Workout, but limit to 10-15 mins???

    I just received the twist stepper today, and I thought Id write a quick review on my first impression.Pros:-Looks Fairly well made and Sturdy-The arm straps are adjustable, and they give excellent resistance-The stepping resistance is adjustable and gives a really good workout-The computer turns on and off automaticallyCons:-The step feels like baby steps. Not horrible, but worth noting-The instructions say to limit workouts to 10-15 mins??? WTH?Im assuming thats to prevent a heat build up from friction, but 15 mins?It seems like a good buy and will do exactly what I want it to do. I want to workout every day with enough resistance to maintain my body weight. Its portable enough that I can use it in any room, so chances are I will end up using it very regularly. Thanks for reading!**UPDATE**I emailed sunny health and fitness about the 15 minute time limit on work outs. They told me that the... 4/5 A. A. Eheander - See all my reviews, September 21, 2012

    Hands down best little stepper made!

    0 5/5 Marstonality - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper (Health and Beauty) After reading other reviews for this and other mini steppers sold here, I ordered this one and kept my fingers crossed. So absolutely glad I bought this thing! It is beautifully designed, sturdy, and required no assembly. The pedals position your feet legs and hips to simulate the real action of the body in climbing stairs--something which the others fail to do, and, force you to use all of the muscles of the hip torso and thighs. I am a personal trainer so have studied the physiolgy involed in these movement dynamics. Add three pound hand weights to ramp up arm muscle challenge, instead of the hand straps which I found restricted natural arm swinging form. Perfect for doing while watching tv or talking on the phone. I love this thing!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 3, 2010

    Weight Loss

    0 3/5 Jonathan - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper with Handle Bar (Health and Beauty) I bought this thing to be low impact and help get me active to lose some weight. I use it for 20minutes a day M-F. I'm averaging 85 steps a minute. When I bought it I was at 320 LBs with the doctor approved goal of 250 LBs. I'm a big muscular guy.Week 1: 315Week 2: 314Week 3: 308Week 4: 304Week 5: 303Week 6: 299All in all I'm pretty happy with my results.The size of the thing is pretty small and its really light and easy to move around with 1 hand. It took less than 10 minutes to put together.Edit: The thing broke 2 weeks after I wrote this review. The metal bar on the right pedal snapped in 2. When it happened I was not injured. I just now saw the comments asking about how sturdy this is. I don't blame the equipment because I'm a big guy. While this thing was quick and a good start it didn't last long (2 months). But it got me motivated to do what I needed which was start exercising. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 25, 2012

    Air Climber: Thumbs down

    The pluses:The Air Climber is lightweight, gives you a good workout, easy on the joints, 2 wide black platforms , and the power cords are a great addition for toning and increasing the workout. The diet plan info/DVD workout is a good bonus. The swishing sound (air traveling from bellow to the other) may annoy some folks, but after after a while, it did not bother me. The adjustable tension is also a nice feature.A HUGE minus for me:This product is NOT durable (quality issues) and that is why I gave it 2 stars. I enjoyed the product and after 30-35 minutes, I broke into a sweat. I returned the Air Climber once, and the factory gave me a new one. After extended normal use (several times per week), the bellows begin to leak air quickly, the black pedals remained unmovable, and stuck on the red platform.I think this product was designed for folks who are light weight and will use it occasionally. Like many advertised fitness products, this company is banking... 2/5 Jesse Bloke (San Jose, CA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Tristar Air Climber - Red/ Black (Sports) The pluses:The Air Climber is lightweight, gives you a good workout, easy on the joints, 2 wide black platforms , and the power cords are a great addition for toning and increasing the workout.

    Deceptively Good Workout!

    I submitted a review for this same company's Lateral Thigh Trainer, which I loved BUT it fell apart (twice; two entirely different LTT machines) due to cheap materials used inside it. Therefore, I was intrigued--and very skeptical--about this "Air Climber", but too intriged to pass it up. I now own one.To the reviewers that point out that the Air Climber looks cheap and lightweight: that is exactly its purpose. I too was very unimpressed and disappointed when I opened it and took it out. At first glance, it honestly looks more like a toddler's toy than an adult's reliable workout machine. It is so light that it can be carried with one hand.Having been accustomed to the Lateral Thigh Trainer's fairly intense workout, I tried the Air Climber and my first impression was "This is too easy...I don't feel like I'm doing real exercise or burning any calories!" In fact, I was on the verge of returning it.Then, the next day, I could barely walk!

    Lightweight, convenient, portable air climber. I love mine!

    I wrote a comment to the previous review, but I'll repeat it here: I think their first batch of Air Climbers was defective. I purchased one, and I started having problems with the bellows, too. But customer service replaced the unit for me (with no questions asked), and the one I have now has been working flawlessly. It would seem that if you purchase something and right away it doesn't work correctly, you should just call the company and have them replace it, and if for some reason they won't do that, you can dispute it on your credit card. Don't let yourself be a victim for no reason. (One note--I would recommend getting the extended warranty if it's available. It's worth the extra $10.)I love my Air Climber so much that I'm considering getting a second one so that I can have one upstairs and another one downstairs (even though it's extremely lightweight and easy to carry--just one more plus).
