Comment: This book has already been loved by someone else. It MIGHT have some wear and tear on the edges, have some markings in it, or be an ex-library book. Over-all it is still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

23 of 24 people found the following review helpful By N. Graves on June 2, 2008
Format: Spiral-bound
This book appears to be a pretty darn good resource for fitness prescription and testing. I have read much of it and it is pretty well written and quite clinical. So if that's what you need, then this book is it.
However, I was intending to get books to study for the ACSM Personal Trainer certification. This is NOT the book for that. Now granted, they recommend this book on their website, and it may be helpful, but the intended primary study source is the ACSM's resources for the personal trainer...book. So if that's what you are trying to do (like i was) then get that book, not this one. If you want a bunch of cool knowledge about exercise prescription, then this is the book for you.

Has all the knowledge you need to evaluate, test, and retest your client, patient, or subject. If you don't have this book (or a previous version of it) and are not following the procedures in this handbook...you're not helping your client as well as you can.

Outstanding You: Discover, Design and Achieve Ultimate Fitness

An excellent resource for any Personal Trainer. I carry mine with me every time I see a client. It's absolutely packed with excellent information. As an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, I have found this book one of the best they offer and one of the best resources I've had as a Trainer overall.

This book has been in my gym bag ever since I bought it and it is a must have for any personal trainer. I take it to all of my training sessions, there is a lot of information and it is more of a resource/guideline book then a preparation book for taking a certification. I highly recommend this book.
