5.0 out of 5 stars A good introductory reading...
As a required reading for an introductory university level athletic training class, this textbook provides a good foundation for working with older adults. It discusses the physiological changes that occur with age along with common health challenges that must be addressed when working with older adults during exercise programs. A nice feature of the book are the pictures...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it
I bought this book because I am a physical therapist that needed more ideas on treating older adults. I found the book to have all the same information I learned in undergrad and nothing new that I could use. If you have gone to school for PT or exercise science I would not recommend this bood because it is all review.

A nice feature of the book are the pictures which demonstrate the exercise techniques for stretching, aerobics, and strengthening.
