Achieving Fitness is intended to be a guide that supplements and enhances existing fitness programs. The text closely supports and references NASPE's Physical Best program which is widely adopted throughout the United States. The book is designed for middle school-aged students through adult populations. If engagement, fun, and physical fitness gains are important to your program, this is a must-have text. This book currently comes with one complimentary copy of the Student Fitness Journal.
