Health and Fitness Books
From text books, to stretching posters, mainstream exercise publications to more niche discipline specific books, Lotus Publishing’s health and fitness books offer insightful literature for everyone. Whether your interest lies in physical fitness, building muscle, medical fitness, rehabilitation or healthy living and wellbeing there is a book for you.
Sports Science Students & Fitness Professionals
Similarly whether you are a sports/health student, industry professional or simply an enthusiast Lotus Publishing’s diverse range of literature will cater for you. Originally published by the authors, Joanne Elphinston and Paul Pook, The Core Workout (2004), was the original health and fitness title, it has been updated and given a fresh look by Lotus Publishing, and it continues to enjoy success to this day. Capitalising on the versatility and benefits (both physical fitness and medical fitness) of the Swiss ball, The Core Workout offers advice and guidance on how to utilise the fitness device to its utmost and includes specific routines, drills and exercises for the reader. Clear photographs make the book not only user friendly but engaging, eye-catching and fun to read.
Physical Fitness Books
Physical fitness books such as Gray Cook’s Movement and Michael Boyle’s Advances in Functional Training (released by publishers On Target Publications in the U.S.), offer in depth information on conditioning, fitness, rehabilitation and injury prevention. Perfect for coaches, personal trainers, sporting professionals, sporting enthusiasts and sports students alike, these two publications, bring a whole new depth to the study of physical fitness, and what is takes to maintain a high level in a range of disciplines, and an injury free body.
In addition to physical fitness and medical fitness books there are numerous self-help rehabilitation text books such as Brad Walker’s Treat Your Own Knees, under the health and fitness category, which naturally sit alongside functional training books and offer important techniques and information for those with sporting injuries, or simply injuries obtained through everyday activities.
Technical Fitness Books
Other Lotus Publishing health and fitness text books and literature focus on more technical aspects of the industry, such as Joanne Fallowfield, Beverley Hale and David Wilkinson’s publication Using Statistics in Sport and Exercise Science Research, an area of sport science that remains largely uncovered by other publishers. Perfect for a whole cross section of students (from sports science, to leisure studies to physical education), as well as professionals working in the sporting fields, Using Statistics in Sport and Exercise Science Research simplifies the science behind generating solid and useable statistics, from deciding on the right questions to ask to how to present the collated data.
General Health & Wellbeing
Lotus Publishing’s health and fitness range also covers the area of general health, healthy living and wellbeing. The recently released publication Energy in Season: Five Keys to Vitality, offers readers a seasonal outlook on healthy, illness and fatigue free, living, (another topic largely uncovered by other publishers), and gives advice on what foods to eat, which exercises to undertake, advises on sleeping patterns and meditations and reflexions to aid wellbeing for that specific time of year. The publication also covers such important aspects of healthy living and wellbeing as diet and lifestyle tips, focusing on the importance of seasonal food in a healthy balanced diet and lifestyle.
Each and every health and fitness publication and text book, despite the diverse category types and titles, follows the quintessential Lotus Publishing style of clear, concise chapters, page layout and eye catching colour illustrations, making these health and fitness books some of the most accessible literature on the market, and Lotus Publishing one of the leading publishers in the field.
