The Gale Encyclopedia Of Fitness covers 300 topics on physiology and fitness, including coverage of Healthy People 2010 / 2020, the nationwide initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to improve the nation's health, as well as topics on diseases and conditions related to fitness. It will round out our coverage of body systems and provide end users with information on preventative health topics.
"This two-volume set makes an excellent introduction to the various subtopics [in] the vast topic of fitness...With interesting and accessible entries on subjects not covered elsewhere, this set would make an excellent investment for high school libraries, public libraries, or undergraduate institutions."
