Summary 
Practical Math for Health Fitness Professionals is an excellent reference for practicing fitness specialists, exercise physiologists, and students seeking certification as fitness professionals. It will help even the most mathphobic individuals overcome their fears and gain a new, indepth understanding of exercise physiology math 

This is the only text to fully explain how to perform the metabolic calculations used in exercise physiology. Stepbystep, the book shows the proper methods for solving math problems in exercise metabolism, pulmonary function, and cardiovascular dynamics. Practical Math for Health Fitness Professionals also explains how to complete the metabolic equations that are included on ACSM certification exams. The book covers the energy cost of level walking, the energy cost of uphill walking, oxygen consumption during running, metabolic equations for cycle and arm ergometers, calculations for bench stepping, submaximal exercise testing, and math for nutritional subjects
