This vital resource is designed specifically for fitness professionals and avid amateurs who want to design an exercise regime for anyone with special needs health conditions or physical challenges which require a supervised and well-informed program that can be safely implemented. There are approximately 50 million Americans who are considered “special needs” and that number is growing rapidly as the Baby Boomers age. This book is the authoritative guide to helping match appropriate exercise and physical fitness programs to people with limitations or special considerations.

Covering a wide range of conditions from osteoporosis, heart conditions, diabetes, obesity, arthritis and back pain, this book takes you through a pre-exercise questionnaire and contra-indications and guides you to the right exercise or activity program to fit your needs or advises when a visit to a health professional should be considered before starting an exercise program.

The Complete Guide is fully illustrated with color photographs and diagrams it covers the condition, diagnosis, treatment as well as a full array of practical tips for designing your activity and fitness program.
