Featuring over 200 full-color photos with accompanying technique instructions, this resource offers readers a step-by-step approach to designing exercise programs with special attention to the application of principles based on age, fitness level, and health status. Using comprehensive guidelines and sample clients portrayed in the text, readers can learn appropriate ways to adjust exercise programs to work with a variety of clients while accommodating each client’s individual needs.

Personal trainers will appreciate the book’s presentation of detailed exercise programming guidelines for specific populations. Modifications and contraindications to exercise are given for prepubescent youth, older adults, and athletes as well as for clients who are overweight or obese or have eating disorders, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, hyperlipedimia, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and cerebral palsyIn addition, the book provides clear, easy-to-understand guidelines for initial client consultation and health appraisal.

For those preparing for the NSCA-CPT exam, this second edition features new and revised study questions at the end of each chapter. These questions are written in the same style and format as those found on the NSCA-CPT exam to fully prepare candidates for exam day. For efficient self-study, answers to study questions and suggested solutions for the applied knowledge questions are located in the back of the text. Chapter objectives and key points provide a framework for study and review of important information, while sidebars throughout the text present practical explanations and applications of scientific concepts and theory.

The second edition of NSCA’s Essentials of Personal Training is the most comprehensive resource available for current and future personal trainers, exercise instructors, fitness facility and wellness center mangers, and other fitness professionals. Unmatched in scope, this text remains the leading source for personal training preparation and professional development.

No, the SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener Products have the same great taste as the regular SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener.

How sweet are the SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener Products?

Each packet of SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener has the sweetness of two teaspoons of sugar, just like our SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener Product.

Can I cook and bake with SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener Products?

While this product was not specifically developed for cooking and baking, sucralose, the sweetening ingredient in all SPLENDA® Sweetener Products retains its sweetness in high temperatures. We would expect to see some losses in the potency of the vitamins in the product with the heat exposure involved in cooking and baking. However these vitamin potency losses would not be greater than what you would see normally when cooking or baking foods that contain vitamins.

SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener, with B Vitamins*

SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener, with B Vitamins*

How much of the B Vitamins are in SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener with B Vitamins?

Each packet of SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener with B Vitamins contains 20% of the Daily Value of vitamins B1 (thiamin), B5 (pantothenic acid) and B6.

How do vitamins B1 (thiamin), B5 (pantothenic acid) and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) affect metabolism?

Vitamins B1 (thiamin), B5 (pantothenic acid) and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) support the metabolism of the macronutrients: fat, carbohydrate, and protein.1 The vitamins themselves are never a source of energy, rather they are involved in facilitating the release of energy from the energy-yielding nutrients. 2 Thiamin supports the metabolism of carbohydrates. Pantothenic Acid and Vitamin B6 support the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

What does vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) do in the body?

Vitamin B6 performs a wide variety of functions in the body and is essential for good health. This vitamin is needed for more than 100 enzyme reactions involved in protein metabolism. It is also essential for the nervous and immune systems to function efficiently, and for red blood cell metabolism. Hemoglobin within red blood cells carries oxygen to tissues. The body needs vitamin B6 to make hemoglobin and this vitamin also helps to increase the amount of oxygen carried by hemoglobin.

Are SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener Products suitable for people with diabetes?

Yes. All SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener Products are suitable for people with diabetes. Sucralose, the no-calorie sweetening ingredient in all SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener Products is not a carbohydrate and has been shown in studies to have no effect on blood glucose control or insulin levels.

Like other no-calorie sweeteners on the market, the SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener with Antioxidants and with B Vitamins Products contain small amounts of carbohydrate (less than 1 gram per serving) that provide needed volume and texture. These common food ingredients, which include maltodextrin and dextrose, add so few calories per serving that both products meet the Food and Drug Administration’s criteria for no-calorie foods (less than 5 calories/serving). In a meal plan for people with diabetes, up to 4 packets of SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener with Antioxidants or with B Vitamins Products, are considered a “free food.” The American Dietetic Association and the American Diabetes Association consider a free food to be any food or beverage that contains less than 20 calories and 5 grams or less of carbohydrate per serving.

In addition to the sucralose, SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener with Fiber contains soluble fiber which is metabolized by the body and therefore needs to be accounted for in a diet for diabetes. Up to three packets of SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener with Fiber counts as a “free food” in a diet for diabetes. If a person with diabetes chooses to consume more than this in one sitting, they simply need to carbohydrate count for it.

Can SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener Products be used by children?

Yes, SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener (sucralose), the sweetening ingredient in SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener Products can be used by everyone, including children. However the daily dietary fiber, vitamin and caloric needs of children are different than adults. A child’s diet should be adjusted to meet his or her individual needs. If you have questions about your child’s diet /nutritional needs, please check with his or her doctor.

What is the shelf life of SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ No Calorie Sweetener Products?

SPLENDA® ESSENTIALS™ Sweetener Products each have a 12 month shelf life.
