Attribution and OER Revision Statement
“Health and Fitness for Life” by Dawn Markell and Diane Peterson is licensed under CC BY 4.0 / A derivative from the original work, except where otherwise noted.
This open textbook is a modified version of “Concepts of Fitness and Wellness” from Georgia Highlands College (also found in the Open Textbook Library). It includes only chapters 1-10 of the original 13, to better accommodate a 10 week length course (quarter system) at Mt Hood Community College. Proprietary links were either updated or removed. Terminology lists were relocated to the beginning of each chapter, just after the original list of Objectives. The primary focus of this revised version is on assessment and development of functional goals in fitness training, nutrition, and stress management. Publication and descriptive metadata were added to facilitate library cataloging: MARC record available at the end of the book.
