Format: Paperback
I am currently undertaking a gym instructor/circuit/personal training course and required the underpinning anatomy and physiology knowledge. I found this book invaluable - brilliant, easy to understand, concise, humerous - it covers the following: Concepts of fitness, The skeleton, The muscular system, Kinesiology, The cardiorespiratory system, Energy systems, Nutrition, Health Screening, Workout structure, Gym instruction, Circuit training, Exercise to music,Step aerobics, Aqua aerobics, Teaching and instruction, Health and Safety, Customer Service, Promoting Physical activity. I call this 'my bible' - I always carry it with me. If i have any criticisms about the book it would be that the circuit training section could have gone into more detail - but other than that - thank you to the authors. It should definitely be recommended as a core text for the OCR/NVQ exams.

Format: Paperback
I have just completed a 5 day theory course as part of my fitness instructor programme where this book was used as the core text. It provided all of the information I needed and was really useful to revise from before the exam. Chapter summaries help to focus on the key points and I got 93% in my exam. I would really recommend this book for anyone taking a gym instructor or aerobics instructor course.

I bought this book as it was recommended on a book list for the Fitness Instructor - Level 2 course that I am taking. It's been great, I've worked through the session on the material I've been given, and then rather than go over the same material again, I've read the relevant section in this book. As other reviewers say, it's easy to read, and the summaries at the end of each Chapter will prove invaluable when it comes to revising for the exam. So it definately gets thumbs up from me!
