    • This edition has been visually recharged with a new, modern and stimulating layout. New visually compelling figures include Figure 1.4 on the leading causes of death by age; Figure 1.8 on choosing an active lifestyle; and Figure 9.7, a quick-reference flow chart that summarizes recommendations from chapters on cardiovascular, strength, and flexibility training, in a two-page spread.
    • All chapters have been rethought and reorganized with new headings and enhanced introductory text. In particular, chapter 9 has been entirely reworked to act as a capstone to the chapters on cardio, strength, and flexibility, giving students complete confidence to write their own exercise programs.
    • The Hoeger focus on personal values is incorporated throughout the text, helping students create permanent lifestyle changes to fit their needs and priorities. For example, the new Lab 9A helps students consider their values when choosing mode and volume of exercise and daily physical activity.
    • Each chapter's contents have been extensively revised and updated according to recent advances and recommendations in the field, including information reported in the academic literature and at professional health, fitness, and sports medicine conferences.
