Sensible Fitness

Jack Wilmore, Author Human Kinetics Publishers $11.95 (299p) ISBN 978-0-88011-270-3
Advances in knowledge about how the body works have necessitated this extensive revision of the Wilmore Fitness Program, originally published in 1981. The author, a physiologist at the University of Texas, integrates current health and exercise approaches into a balanced guide for the growing audience of people serious about the pursuit of lasting fitness. Although the prose is sometimes stilted, the reliable evidence Wilmore marshalls to support his precepts both enlightens and convinces the reader. Other strong points: an organizational form that clearly presents the author's techniques and methods as well as a comprehensive bibliography. Altogether this is an authoritative work. (June)
