“If students sit passively on the sidelines, how can we expect them to learn - and to change their behavior in ways that promote their health and wellness, now and in the future?"

Questions and Answers: A Guide to Fitness and Wellness is the first fitness and wellness text to be written in direct response to students’ questions about their own health and well-being. The authors, Gary Liguori and Sandra Carroll-Cobb, combine the latest science-based knowledge with practical guidance on concrete actions students can take now to be engaged participants in their learning and become active shapers of their future health and happiness while they improve their fitness and wellness.

Also available with this edition is McGraw-Hill Education’s Connect, the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective. Connect is sold separately and does not come automatically with the purchase of the textbook.
