Summary
"Resistance to Exercise: A Social Analysis of Inactivity broadens and expands current notions about individual responsibility for lifestyle changes. The book will help health and fitness program administrators to better understand the social forces that influence people's resistance to participation in activity programs. It also motivates physical activity professionals to continue their promotion of physical activity as a major health benefit."--Jacket
