Additional Product Information:
Corbin’s Concepts of Fitness and Wellness provides a comprehensive and evidence-based approach to teaching principles of healthy living. Foundational elements include an integrated instructional HELP philosophy that focuses on self-management skills for sustained lifestyle change, a concepts-based framework designed for achieving well-defined learning objectives, and an engaging, student-centered approach to learning that accommodates various learning preferences and methods. Each revision of Corbin’s Concepts of Fitness and Wellness incorporates new research and findings about healthy lifestyles, but the thirteenth edition was influenced by many external factors as well. This edition was conceptualized and updated during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, which challenged all facets of our society and increased attention on the intersections of public health and personal health. The fully updated Thirteenth Edition is supported by Connect, the only integrated digital learning environment that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.
