Client-Centered Exercise Prescription, Third Edition With Web Resource, emphasizes a personalized approach to exercise in which unique programs meet the interests and needs of individual clients. This resource will help you to prescribe exercise and guide clients in adopting, enjoying, and maintaining active lifestyles.

Client-Centered Exercise Prescription, Third Edition, expands the role of the fitness professional from simple exercise prescription to include activity counseling, design modification, exercise demonstration, functionally integrated exercise, injury prevention, and follow-up monitoring for a variety of clients. Central to the book are seven client-centered models for each major fitness component that serve as a template of options for each decision in the prescription process: activity counseling, musculoskeletal exercise design, exercise demonstration, cardiovascular exercise prescription, resistance training prescription, muscle balance and flexibility prescription, and weight management prescription. The text explains the vital role that functionally integrated exercise plays in improving performance and maintaining musculoskeletal health and teaches how to recognize muscle imbalance and prevent complications. Fitness professionals will learn 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

• Monitoring clients’ needs both as they are originally presented and as they evolve over time

• Applying strategies for treating and preventing overuse injuries so that clients avoid injury and frustration, thereby avoiding withdrawal from the program

• Addressing the unique considerations of aging clients, including musculoskeletal conditions and functional mobility

The third edition of Client-Centered Exercise Prescription retains the client-centered approach of previous editions, offering simulated initial interviews with clients, teaching cues for demonstration, sample sessions, and sample counseling dialogue. The text also features numerous updates:

• More than 40 reproducible forms included in the text and duplicated in printable format in the web resource that can be shared with clients

• Applied exercise prescription worksheets that facilitate the flow from the prescription models to the prescription card

• Three new chapters on exercise prescription for aging adults that offer specific exercise recommendations for this growing demographic

• Expanded sections on applied nutrition, reliable field tests, safety and referrals, and a unique biomechanical approach to exercise modifications and functional progressions

• Five new case studies and other updated case studies that allow you to grasp how the material may be used in practice

• Theory to Application sidebars, numerous photos, and chapter summaries that will engage you and help you find the most relevant information

Using reliable field tests, practical nutrition guidelines, and applied exercise physiology concepts, this text will help both professionals and students better serve their current and future clients. Candidates preparing for certification exams, including the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology Certified Personal Trainer (CSEP-CPT) exam, will find comprehensive treatment of the theory and applications covering the competencies required before entering the field. Practical examples, applied models, and scientific knowledge also make the text accessible to undergraduate students in fitness, exercise science, and health promotion programs.
