Summary "The text is designed to help clinicians learn how to motivate and educate patients on how to incorporate regular exercise into their daily lives. The central focus is on how to help patients become motivated and stay that way. It covers how to design practical exercise programs for otherwise healthy patients of all ages and fitness levels, as well as those with special conditions such as pregnancy, obesity, and cancer. The book also includes in-depth discussions of both the lifestyle approach to exercising regularly and the structured exercise approach."--BOOK JACKET
