Regardless of discipline, level of expertise, training philosophy, body shape, or fitness level, all riders do better—in horse-related activities on the ground and in the saddle—when they take care of their bodies and maintain their fitness. While riding is a great way to enjoy an active lifestyle, on its own it is not enough to condition and tone the body to the degree we need, and then the horse must make up the fitness gap in our physical partnership. If our reflexes are slow, if our bodies fatigue, if our position collapses, if tension patterns appear, then the horse suffers repetitive asymmetrical strain or develops compensatory movement habits. It is for his good, as well as ours, that certified personal trainer and riding coach Heather Sansom has developed an utterly achievable 9-week plan to give every rider the straightness, suppleness, strength, and stamina she needs to rider her best. With hundreds of one-of-a-kind illustrations depicting accurate musculature on the rider’s body, and dozens of proven exercises organized in a progressive fitness program with easy-to-use schedule charts, Sansom’s book is the key to enjoying the ride, being fair to your horse, and getting into fabulous shape—in nine weeks!

Fitness for Life is a comprehensive fitness education program that helps students take responsibility for their own activity, fitness, and health. Through Fitness for Life, students are prepared to be physically active and healthy throughout their adult lives. This evidence-based and standards-based program follows a pedagogically sound scope and sequence to enhance student learning and progress. What’s new in the Sixth Edition New to this book are three chapters (Strategies for Active Living, The Science of Active Living, and Lifelong Activity) that will help students transition from being active in school to sustaining the skills and motivation to remain active and fit for their lifetime. These chapters reinforce the Stairway to Lifetime Fitness concept, created by author Chuck Corbin, to serve as a guide for physical education standards nationwide. Some specifics include the following: · The New Physical Activity Pyramid for teens · Photos and art to illustrate concepts and engage students · Video that illustrates self-assessments and exercises · Information about the sciences on which physical education and fitness education are based · Information on scientific analysis of human movement using biomechanical principles · Information on simplified scientific method for use in decision making · Web icons and content · Technology features encouraging application as well as understanding · Science in Action feature that provides in-depth coverage of fitness, health, and wellness innovations · Exercise photos with art illustrating the muscles used · Taking Action feature that applies concepts and principles in physical activity · Planning activities for all activities in the Physical Activity Pyramid In addition, the authors went through an exhaustive process in revising and updating all the chapters to reflect current research and the new national physical education standards and fitness education standards. The entire book has been reorganized and completely rewritten. Award-Winning Text, Evidence-Based Approach The evidence-based Fitness for Life text earned a Texty Award for excellence from the Text and Academic Authors Association. It is based on scientific evidence and meets national and state physical education standards and national health and physical education guidelines. Materials have been field tested and used throughout the United States and the world. This comprehensive, interactive new resource will help students in the following ways: · Meet the national, state, and local grade-level standards and outcomes developed for K-12 physical education by SHAPE America based on the new standards outlined in Healthy People 2020 and published in 2014. · Learn the values and benefits of lifelong physical activity through the HELP philosophy, which specifies the goal of promoting health for everyone with an emphasis on lifetime activity designed to meet personal needs. · Become informed consumers on matters related to lifelong physical activity and fitness. · Learn self-management skills that lead to adopting healthy lifestyles. · Recognize and overcome the barriers to reaching activity and fitness goals. · Use technology to promote healthy living. · Separate fitness facts from fiction. · Take personal responsibility for program planning and setting individualized goals. This best-selling text, written by internationally renowned authors and educators Charles B. Corbin and Guy C. Le Masurier and contributing author and educator Karen McConnell, is suited for use in a general physical education or personal fitness class. It will help students meet national and state physical education standards—not only those focused on health-related fitness and physical activity but also those related to movement skills and concepts, diversity, and social responsibility. Fitness for Life can be modified to fit any schedule, including block and accelerated block. It can be taught as semester-long, yearlong, or multiyear courses. The HELP philosophy on which the book is based (health for everyone with an emphasis on lifetime activity designed to meet personal needs) teaches the value of lifelong physical activity as well as the idea that physical activity can and should be fun. The authors use the Stairway to Lifetime Fitness concept to show the importance of learning decision-making and problem-solving skills that enable students to develop their own health-related fitness programs and maintain a physically active lifestyle into adulthood. Special Features in Every Chapter Every chapter of Fitness for Life, Sixth Edition, includes self-assessments for the students to perform—including Fitnessgram assessments—and lessons on self-management skills such as reducing risk factors, resolving conflicts, setting goals, managing time, and overcoming barriers to success. The book devotes multiple lessons to personal program planning, implementation, and evaluation. The chapters have a series of prominent features: · Lesson objectives direct student learning. · Lesson vocabulary helps students understand multiple uses of words (definitions in glossary and online). · New art includes a version of the physical activity pyramid for teens. · New photos and design give the chapters a refreshing student-friendly look with its dynamic four-color design. · Muscle art identifies the muscles used in each exercise. · Fit Facts give quick information about relevant topics. · Quotes from famous people reveal their thoughts on fitness, health, and wellness. · Fitness Technology offers opportunities for students to use or study technology. · Science in Action provides in-depth coverage of innovations in fitness, health, and wellness. · Self-Assessment allows students to evaluate their fitness, health, and wellness as the first step in personal planning for improvement. All of the self-assessments in Fitnessgram are included. · Taking Charge and Self-Management allow students to learn self-management skills for adopting healthy behaviors and interacting with other students to solve problems encountered by hypothetical teens. · Taking Action features activities that are supported by the lesson plans. · Consumer Corner is a once-per-unit feature that helps students become good consumers of information on fitness, health, and wellness as they learn how to separate fact from fiction.
