Interactive Health and Fitness is an innovative system of learning that blends a conversational, easy-to-read textbook with cutting-edge technology. The learning system is made up of three primary components:

A textbook that provides the background theory, the anatomy and physiology, and the basic concepts that will help students to make sound, well-informed decisions in areas that will impact their health now and in the future

Web-based resources designed to create a multidimensional learning experience

Something no other text can offer. Throughout the course, each student will develop his or her personal Total Wellness Plan™.

The authors have taught at the higher education level. Their research interests include cardiovascular physiology, post-exercise metabolism, exercise immunology, assessment of body composition, behavior change, and distance learning.
