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 workout from a small machine!

    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

    This thing works!

    0 5/5 A. Portsmouth (North Dakota, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper (Health and Beauty) Very short version to a really long, awful story: I was dumped and I tried to eat my way out of it.In the end, all I ended up with was still dumped and now sitting on a size 18 rear end. Not good.So I ordered this little stepper.Listen to me here...this is the important part. IT WORKS!I actually have two now. One at home and one at work. I make it a necessity to use it for a minimum of 10 minutes every hour -- no matter what. You don't have to get on it and use it for 45 minutes straight -- although, that's an awesome workout, too. Just get on it and use it consistently.I started this 30 days ago. And now I'm sitting on a size 12 rear end with size 8 straight ahead, directly in my sights! Every step counts. Every step is YOU moving toward your goal -- whatever that may be.Buy it. Oh, and you should buy a can of WD-40, too. If you use it as much as you should, the shocks will need some lubricating. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 20, 2013
