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.

    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). At first I just used it several times a week, because I have other... 4/5 ranat-ka (Renton, WA) - See all my reviews I wrote a comment to the previous review, but I'll repeat it here: I think their first batch of Air Climbers was defective.
