Easy to read and follow.

There are so few quality resources on this topic, it's a must for any adult who cares about youth fitness.

Format: Paperback
We purchased several copies of this book for the Asbury Park Public Library; and because it can be used by customers of all ages we placed them in both the adult and children's collections. I'm also aware that several other libraries in this part of the state have purchased copies. Childhood obesity is almost epidemic in our city and this book gives parents and others very helpful advice about some of the steps that they can take to deal with this very serious problem.

Format: Paperback
Book was well done. You can tell the Authors have a vast amount of experience on the subject. This book covers Youth Fitness well without bogging down and getting boring. Easy to read and follow. This book should find its way into the School System as a textbook.

I bought this book as a gift for a coworker who works with kids and was developing a youth program. I reviewed the book prior to ordering it and it had all the necessary components to assist her with her program. The book is helpful and informative.

Format: Paperback
As an elementary educator and parent of a young teenager, I am very interested in the factors that contribute to the health and well-being of young people. Brzycki and Fornicola have created a handbook that is appropriate for parents, educators, coaches and teens themselves.

The authors provide an excellent balance of background information (with sections like "What is Fitness?" and "Poor Nutrition = Poor Health") and true "action planning", as the title suggests. There are clear directions for simple exercises (with accompanying photos), sample workout schedules, and tips for weight management.

I'm thrilled to have purchased such a helpful book for my son. I also bought a copy for my daughter's elementary school and my son's track coach. There are so few quality resources on this topic, it's a must for any adult who cares about youth fitness.
