Comprehensive School Physical Activity Programs: Putting Research into Evidence-Based Practice
Schools are the ideal place to promote and apply the recommended 60 minutes of daily physical activity. But until now, it has been difficult to bridge the gap between research in this area and day-to-day practice in order to establish solid programs. Comprehensive School Physical Activity Programs guides you in effectively supporting physical education and increasing daily physical activity of school children using the Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP) model. The text mixes CSPAP research, theory and practice. It provides the most in-depth look at the model available. An international team of leaders in the field offer guidance and understanding of the most prominent concepts, issues and developments in the field. This guidance goes beyond the CSPAP model, as they also delve into assessment, evaluation, advocacy, policy, partnerships, international perspectives, technology and more. Organised into six parts, the first half of the text explores the history of the model, factors that impact programme design and the effectiveness of established programmes. The second half the text looks at programming for urban and rural setting, assessing a school community's needs and the tools and potential of using technology to deliver and assess CSPAP efforts. Each chapter offers current research, knowledge gaps and directions for recommendations and applications, case studies and questions for discussion. Comprehensive School Physical Activity is an all-in-one resource that helps schools use strategies to sustain successful physical activity initiatives through CSPAP.

Just Your Type: The Ultimate Guide to Eating and Training Right for Your Body Type
According to fitness guru Phil Catudal, 70% of us are exercising the wrong way. To fix that, he now offers readers the same program he uses to great success with Hollywood celebrities--his Fearless Flexible Diet. To achieve lasting fitness and health, you need to work with your natural-born body type and do the optimal combination of aerobic, strength training, and flexibility exercises and consume the right proportion of macronutrients for your physique. While fitness trends and fad diets will come and go, your body type (somatotype) is the one constant that's never going to change. The message behind Just Your Type is simple but powerful: if you want to be healthy, fit, slim, and strong, focus on the physical and dietary moves that will enhance your natural-born body type. Just Your Type reveals how to accurately figure out your natural body type (ectomorph, mesomorph, endomorph, or, most often, a hybrid of those types), and help anyone create an individualized workout that's tailored to their body shape and composition. Just Your Type is your roadmap to the best combination of aerobic, strength training, and flexibility exercises and consume the right proportion of nutrients for your physique. Working harder isn't always the answer, but working smarter is.

**The fitness and diet plan followed by NICOLE SCHERZINGER and AMANDA HOLDEN** I love Svava's technique. In all my years of training, the Viking Method is unlike anything I have ever done - Nicole Scherzinger The Viking Method is an incredible fitness plan - for me the most important thing was not just getting stronger physically but mentally. - Amanda Holden The Viking Method uses Svava's strong mental practices inspired by her Icelandic upbringing to help the reader build the lean, powerful and toned physique they desire. It'll render the reader more resilient, bolder and full of belief in themselves. Unlike other fitness and diet books, The Viking Method isn't about the external superficiality of a beach body. It's about three core pillars: thinking like a Viking, training like a Viking and eating like a Viking. Svava introduces these pillars early on in the book - along with mantras for each pillar which are connected to empowerment, mental strength and internal validation over counting calories. The book features information on eating and exercising for your hormones, detailed workout routines based around body-weight exercises illustrated with photographs, and a selection of delicious Scandi-inspired recipes such as Thor-red Salmon and Icelandic Lamb Stew.

Yoga for Everyone: 50 Poses For Every Type of Body
Yoga is for every body, including yours! For years, yoga books have asked readers to bend over backward (literally!) to conform to their physical demands. It's time for the opposite--for readers to demand that yoga conform to their individual needs. It's time for a yoga book to reflect the broader population that would benefit from a yoga practice geared toward them. It's time for Yoga for Everyone! This book offers yoga for every type of body: those who are big, small, elderly, pregnant, or of various physical abilities--everyone. No matter who you are or what you look like or what your abilities are, you can do all 50 poses in this book. The variations to classic poses in this book will also allow you to perform all 10 sequences, which combine different poses into one singular experience and focus on specific physical and mental benefits. So forget what you've heard. Yoga isn't just for the privileged few. It's meant to be enjoyed by everybody and every body. Yes, you can do yoga--and Yoga for Everyone will show you how! --------------------------------- Dianne is a wonderful teacher with a voice and a message that's absolutely needed not only in the yoga community but also in the world. I'd go as far as to say that this book is the most important yoga book released this year. This book smashes the myth of the thin, able-bodied yogi and provides a safe introduction to the art of yoga in a way that's accessible to all. Yoga is for everyone! -- Rachel Brathen, author of Yoga Girl Dianne Bondy is truly a leader in the yoga world. Her unwavering commitment to accessibility and inclusiveness is demonstrated perfectly in her new book, Yoga for Everyone. This is a great book for yoga teachers and yoga students of all levels. If you're intimated by the conventional imagery of yoga, if you think yoga isn't for you, or if you're a teacher looking for tools to make the practice approachable for everyone, this book will be a valuable tool. Yoga is an ancient science of the soul, and Dianne's work aims to bring these universal teachings to different kinds of folks with the heart and wisdom that's a vital part of her contribution to the world. -- Kino MacGregor, yoga instructor Dianne is a force, a personal inspiration, and someone who knows her power and uses it to uplift others. Western yoga and wellness spaces are severely lacking safety and inclusion. Oftentimes, walking into those spaces can feel more marginalizing than healing. Dianne's book is full of resources anybody can use--teacher or student--to create an accessible and welcoming space. The visual representation of diverse bodies and abilities provides a needed reminder that yoga in indeed for all of us. Thank you, Dianne! -- Dana Falsetti, yoga instructor Dianne Bondy continues to be a leading voice in the accessible yoga movement, and this book will serve as an excellent resource for anyone (and that's most of us) who doesn't resonate with or benefit from a standard one-size-fits-all approach to poses. Yoga for Everyone encapsulates the heart of Dianne's teachings, which is to make yoga fully adaptable to the experience of the practitioner. Whether beginners or long-time yoga students, readers will be able to choose a pose and find a route into it that suits their individual desires and needs. The models demonstrating the poses also represent a range of abilities, ages, and sizes, reflecting that yoga truly is for everyone. -- Todd Wolfenberg, CEO of Yoga International Yoga for Everyone is a celebration and a triumph! It not only powerfully illustrates that every body is a yoga body, but it also illustrates the diversity and range of the practice itself through the adaptations and variations of yoga poses. Now everyone can access the benefits of a consistent yoga practice tailored to their individual needs and unique and beautiful body. -- Melanie Klein, editor of Yoga Rising: 30 Empowering Stories from Yoga Renegades for Every Body and co-editor of the ground-breaking collection Yoga and Body Image: 25 Personal Stories About Beauty, Bravery and Loving Your Body. Dianne's approach is creative, customizable, and firmly rooted in compassion and inclusivity. Because Dianne presents several options for each pose--each one explained in a clear, digestible manner that demystifies the purpose behind the pose and addresses common frustrations--Yoga for Everyone will make a great matside companion for students of all levels. -- Kat Heagberg, editor in chief of Yoga International Dianne Bondy is one of the most important figures in contemporary yoga, and her brilliance is reflected in this book. Her yoga is an exploration of potential and possibility--inclusive and accessible. She explores the diversity of abilities and experience, and she lifts us all up through her embrace of humanity. -- Jivana Heyman, founder of Accessible Yoga

An integrated and personalized approach to health, nutrition, training, recovery, and mindset There is a new revolution happening in sports as more and more athletes are basing their success on this game-changing combination: health, nutrition, training, recovery, and mindset. Unfortunately, the evidence-based techniques that the expert PhDs, academic institutions, and professional performance staffs follow can be in stark contrast to what many athletes actually practice. When combined with the noise of social media, old-school traditions, and bro-science, it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. Peak is a groundbreaking book exploring the fundamentals of high performance (not the fads), the importance of consistency (not extreme effort), and the value of patience (not rapid transformation). Dr. Marc Bubbs makes deep science easy to understand, and with information from leading experts who are influencing the top performers in sports on how to achieve world-class success, he lays out the record-breaking feats of athleticism and strategies that are rooted in this personalized approach. Dr. Bubbs's performance protocol is for the elite athlete, active individual, strength coach, nutritionist, or practitioner who wants to expand their potential by: Connecting the importance of sleep, digestion, the athlete microbiome, and blood glucose control metrics Creating personalized deep nutrition strategies for building muscle, burning fat, or making weight for competition Rethinking nutrition specifically for team sports Learning how elite endurance athletes fuel, including training techniques to boost performance Applying the new science of recovery that enhances performance Emphasizing the tremendous role of emotional intelligence and mindset in overcoming roadblocks and achieving athletic success (the next frontier in performance) Analyzing the qualities of elite leaders and how to develop them authentically Dr. Bubbs expertly brings together the worlds of health, nutrition, and exercise and synthesizes the salient science into actionable guidance. Regardless if you're trying to improve your physique, propel your endurance, or improve your team's record, looking at performance through this lens is absolutely critical for lasting success.

Performance-Based Assessment for Middle and High School Physical Education
Performance-Based Assessment for Middle and High School Physical Education is a cutting-edge book that teachers trust for assessing middle school and high school physical education students. Also a highly popular undergraduate text for courses that focus on performance-based assessment, this new third edition features significant additions, enhancements, and updates: New chapters on effective management and instruction delivery, which make it appropriate for PETE instructors using the book for secondary methods courses A new chapter on assessments with various instructional models, including Sport Education, Teaching Games for Understanding, Cooperative Learning, Personalized System of Instruction, and Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility A new chapter on assessing dance (with sample dance units in the web resource) A new sample unit on ultimate Frisbee in the chapter on invasion games An expanded section on cognitive assessments, with suggestions for writing tests Updated content on rubrics Performance-Based Assessment shows readers how to use portfolios to assess fitness, and it offers an example of a portfolio assessment for a high school fitness course. It also guides readers in using skill tests in physical education. Written by two authors with a combined 26 years of experience teaching physical education in public schools, the text discusses various assessment formats, helping PETE students and in-service teachers know both what to assess and how to assess it. Readers learn how to develop culminating and progressive assessments, as well as plan for continuous performance-based assessments and acquire effective teaching strategies for standards-based instruction. All content is aligned with current SHAPE America national standards and is supported by research from educational assessment giants such as Tom Guskey, Richard Stiggins, Dylan William, Robert Marzano, and James Popham. The book is organized into four parts, with part I introducing readers to performance-based assessment issues such as the need for change in the assessment process, how assessments can be used to enhance learning, the various assessment domains and methods, and the use of rubrics in assessments. Part II explores aspects of managing and implementing physical education lessons. In part III, readers learn about the components of performance-based assessment, and in part IV, they delve into issues affecting grading and implementing continuous performance-based assessment. This groundbreaking text explains the theory behind assessment and, through its numerous models, shows how to apply that theory in practice. The text is filled with practical examples, much more so than the typical assessment book. And it is supplemented by a web resource that houses forms, charts, and other material for instructors to use in their performance-based assessments.

Bluffer's Guide to Hiking: Instant Wit & Wisdom
Never again confuse LEJOG with JOGLE, a Munro with a molehill, or a Corbett with a cairn. Bask in the admiration of your fellow enthusiasts as you pronounce confidently on the comparative merits of an Active Explorer and a Wainwright, and effortlessly learn how to solve any imponderable problem in the Great Outdoors by quoting a key Latin phrase beloved by hikers (and which also happens to be the answer to life, the universe and everything). DO SAY: There's a fine line between permissiveness and flirtation, and a 'permissive path' may cross this line on a regular basis. Such paths are not legal rights of way. They merely tease the hiker into thinking they are. One day you can walk along one, the next day it may be closed. One minute it's your best pal, the next, it just doesn't want to know you. DON'T SAY: If out on the hills without a fleece, just catch a couple of sheep - strap one across your chest, and another across your back, and you'll enjoy the same benefits. Sheep have a nervous habit of urinating when hikers pass by, so strap them head upwards and feet outwards. There's only so much work your wicking base layer can do.

Running with a Police Escort: Tales from the Back of the Pack
In the fall of 2012, quirky and cat-loving Cleveland librarian Jill Grunenwald got an alarming email from her younger sister: her sister was very concerned with Jill's weight and her overall mental and physical health. Having always struggled with her weight, Jill was currently hitting the scales at more than three hundred pounds. Right then, Jill looked in the mirror and decided that she needed to make a life-style change, pronto. She enrolled in Weight Watchers and did something else that she the girl who avoided gym class like the plague in high school never thought she'd do; Jill started running. And believe it or not, it wasn't that bad. Actually, it was kind of fun. Three months later, Jill did the previously unthinkable and ran her very first 5k at the Cleveland Metropolitan Zoo. Battling the infamous hills of the course, Jill conquered her fears and finished but in dead last. Yep, the police were reopening the streets behind her. But Jill didn't let that get her down because when you run for your health and happiness, your only real competition is yourself. Six years and more than one hundred pounds lost later, Jill is still running and racing regularly, and she is a proud member of the back of the pack in every race that she has entered. In this newly updated edition Running with a Police Escort, Jill chronicles her racing adventures, proving that being a slow runner takes just as much guts and heart as being an Olympic champion. At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, Running with a Police Escort is for every runner who has never won a race but still loves the sport.

Becoming Boston Strong: One Woman's Race to Run and Conquer the World's Greatest Marathon
Named One of the Best Nonfiction Books to Read in 2019 by Woman's Day It's 2004 and twentysomething Amy Noelle Roe is living by herself in Portland, Oregon, with few friends, little money, and no job. It's not her year. With lots of free time on her hands, she remembers watching the Boston Marathon years ago and, inspired by that memory, decides to join a marathon training group, hoping that running 26.2 miles will give her something show for an otherwise entirely unproductive time in her life. A few months later, she crosses the finish line but is far from a Boston qualifying-time. But Amy has caught the marathon bug, and is determined to qualify for Boston, even if it's just as a squeaker, a runner who just manages a BQ time. Eleven marathons later, and Amy finally squeaks by, signing up for the 2011 Boston Marathon. She completes it, qualifying again for the following year, and then again for 2013, the fated year of the Boston Marathon Bombing. Due to an injury, Amy crosses the 2013 finish line in a little over four hours, minutes before the bombs goes off. Her world is forever changed as she is shaken to her core. Becoming Boston Strong is Amy's journey of falling in love with the Boston Marathon and its community, for better or for worse. It chronicles the ups and downs of her training, delving into the mystical appeal of the greatest marathon in the world and how it attracts those who return to it year after year. Hilarious and heartfelt, Becoming Boston Strong is for every person who ever dreamed of belonging to something bigger than themselves.

The Time-Saver's Workout: A Revolutionary New Fitness Plan that Dispels Myths and Optimizes Results
There is something terribly wrong with the state of exercise as we know it presently. Sales of treadmills, running shoes, gym memberships, and yoga classes are at an all-time high, but so too are our national levels of obesity and type II diabetes. Ever since the 1960s the exercising public has been told to stretch for flexibility and to perform low-intensity steady-state aerobic exercise for their cardiovascular systems and some form of resistance training to keep their muscles strong. With regard to diet, they have been told to restrict or omit macronutrients such as fats and carbohydrates and lots of other advice with regard to calorie-counting. Could it be that this information, however well intended, was mistaken? And is it really necessary to devote so much time to the pursuit? Fitness researcher and pioneer John Little has spent more than twelve years researching the actual science underpinning our most prevalent beliefs about exercise and has come away from the enterprise convinced that we need an entirely new paradigm, one that would involve reliance on briefer workouts. He presents this revolutionary new approach in The Time-Saver's Workout. Among the fascinating revelations presented in this book: * Certain types of exercise can actually make you less healthy and fatter. * Taking large doses of food supplements might actually shorten your life and put you at greater risk for disease. * Stretching to become more flexible or to recover quicker from injury has been found to do neither of these things. * Resistance training, once considered to be the weak sister of exercise, is now looking like the best form of exercise one should engage in. The new protocols that Little exposes offer a far safer alternative for those looking to become stronger, fitter, and healthier without spending their lives in the gym.
