Fitness Professional’s Handbook, Eighth Edition With HKPropel Access, reflects the most up-to-date research, position stands, guidelines, and standards from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), other professional societies, and government agencies. New case studies reflecting a diverse array of clients offer real-world applications, and Research Insight sidebars cover a wide range of applicable scientific topics.

Significant updates, changes, and additions have been made throughout, including these:

  • An updated overview of assessment that provides practical understanding of preparatory steps such as obtaining informed consent, taking steps to maximize client safety, and explaining test results in a way that will be meaningful and relevant
  • A new chapter on how to combine assessment results with a client’s health status and personal goals to create a comprehensive exercise program
  • Expanded content on working with clients who are pregnant, covering the benefits of exercise during and after pregnancy; application of a new prescreening tool; contraindications and signs that warrant stopping exercise; and new content on pelvic floor training
  • Updated content on chronic diseases, featuring the latest information on cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and cancer

Additional new information includes two new muscular fitness tests; an expanded section on pharmacology that covers major drug categories and offers insights into how medications can affect heart rate, blood pressure, and physiological responses to exercise; and coverage of neuromotor fitness.
