Keegan does an excellent job defining stress and how to apply such CAM as aquatherapy, aromatherapy, humor, mental imagery, massage, music and relaxation techniques to it.Exercise and Fitness Books Howley, E. T. (2007). Fitness Professionals Handbook. Champaign: Human Kinetics. Though technical and targeted for the fitness professional, this book serves as reference for its approach to fitness traininng and exercise prescriptions for athletes, special populations (e.g., children, the overweight, and those with diabetes).

http://www.bodiesinmotionwithgilad.com/2/tv_times.htm If I would give anyone credit for my fitness and form, besides my own motivation, it would be this man, Gilad Janklowisz, the fitness-extraordinaire out of Hawaii, who continuously reinvents himself and exercises to change with the times and styles in his quest to make fitness a relevant lifestyle choice – he has won with me. Faithful to his exercise techniques since the 80s, I remain motivated, fit, and strong through his currently aired programs, ―Bodies in Motion,‖ and ―Total Body Sculpt,‖ both still delivering quality exercise routines that keep me motivated and provide results. This Web site is comprehensive of Gilad’s exercise ―dynasty‖ providing a collection of DVDs for purchase, testimonials, Gilad’s biography and blog, and schedule of times and channels the exercise programs air.DVD Blanks, B. (2005). Tae Bo Total Body Fat Blaster Work-Out. New York, N. Y. , U.S.A.: Good Times DVD. Intense, challenging, while very effective. Billy Blanks delivers in this DVD. With this workout I strengthened and sculpted my core and improved my balance and overall muscle tone. Highly recommended for those with intermediate to advance skills or beginners looking to advance. However, be wary, the 55-minute workout moves fast and is challenging – preview prior to starting, obtaining physician release before beginning. For this same reason, from the warm-up to the crescendo-ing final
routine, and engaging, placing a demand on your stamina, focus, and determination.Web site http://www.fitday.com/ - a jewel of a site for those interested in setting weight loss goals by listing foods, having a visual of personal food choices’ nutritional information (e.g., calories, carbohydrate, protein, and fat values), and tracking saved data, FitDay.com is a free online diet journal and calorie tracker.

Great reference for academia and laymen, providing sound, easy-to-read, and - understand information on everything nutrition: micro- to macronutrients, to digestive processes, growth and development, nutritional counseling, definitions, food as fuel source, drug-nutrient interaction, and special reporting features such as Focus on Culture (information as it pertains to nutrition and culture, such as Diversity in Food Patterns) and To Probe Further.Kelinson, A. (2009). The Athletes Plate: Real Food for High Performance. Boulder, CO: Velo Press. As an athlete physical optimal performance is the goal, but that must be balanced with optimal fueling, therefore optimal nutrition should be another goal. Author Adam Kelinson provides useful information regarding athletes and sports nutrition, finding it ―crucial…to translate the traditional lifestyle of nutritious,
fresh ingredients into a system that could seamlessly fit into the busy lifestyle of an athlete while simultaneously promoting increased health and performance.‖ (Kelinson, 2009, p. xiii).
