This is a great book for anyone in the health and fitness industry. It is more like a desk reference to be used. I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs a quick reference to be used. The book arrived exactly as I ordered and was packaged very well. Great shipper.

The book has a lot in it. From BMI, HR, ect to giving people a schedule. I learned a lot more than I thought, before. Bought it for a class. Will keep it afterwards.
