The Exercise Professional’s Guide to Optimizing Health will instruct exercise professionals about how to design and implement programs to both help people avoid the onset of chronic disease and safely benefit from exercise if they have already been diagnosed. The book, based on the latest research, is divided into three parts. Part One explains pathophysiological concepts common in chronic diseases as well as the healthful effects of exercise and nutrition. Part Two covers atherosclerotic heart disease, obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and dyslipidemia, with specific recommendations for effective exercise programs to manage each disease. Part Three covers behavior change and summarizes the exercise prescription information for each chronic disease in a single chapter.
