Throughout the text, theoretical explanation is supported by case studies, practical and reflective exercises and guidance on further study.

A nice easy read, with easy terminology. Very informative.
The text is a very good addition to the necessary recommended reading material as it provides an insightful view into the Personal Training Industry.
This book is brilliant for anybody that teaches a unit about fitness or personal training.
Definitely a text worth having for any institute running a personal training or fitness instructing course. Offers an excellent insight into the world of a personal trainer and is a great resource to use during the theory delivery throughout a course/qualification.
Very useful resource, however it does contradict the CYQ teaching resources in places. Relevant and accurate advice and professional practice throughout that was adopted by the learners.
This book was widely used to support the learners throughout the qualification.
A useful resource book which has helped students understand the development of training programmes. The technical information to complete exercises is excellent and welcomed by students.
A useful learning and teaching aid for first year higher education students. In particular the reflective learning sections help students to link theory with practice.
A 'must read' resource that our students refer to on a regular basis. The quick reference and usability of this book makes for a must have in our sports students kit bags. Nicely written and clear to understand, this book comes highly recommended.
The format of the book provides a logical introduction to the world of Personal Training that can be used to introduce the fundamental concepts surrounding the development and prescription of exercise program's.
