About the author (1990)

Dr. Werner W.K. Hoeger is a full-time professor and director of the Human Performance Laboratory at Boise State University. He is a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and is the recipient of the first ever 2004 Presidential Award for Research and Scholarship in the College of Education at Boise State University. Dr. Hoeger uses his knowledge and experiences to write engaging, informative books that thoroughly address today's fitness and wellness issues in a format accessible to students. He has written several textbooks for Thomson Wadsworth, including LIFETIME PHYSICAL FITNESS AND WELLNESS, Ninth Edition; FITNESS AND WELLNESS, Seventh Edition; PRINCIPLES AND LABS FOR FITNESS AND WELLNESS, Eighth Edition; PRINCIPLES AND LABS FOR PHYSICAL FITNESS, Fifth Edition; WELLNESS: GUIDELINES FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, Fourth Edition; and WATER AEROBICS FOR FITNESS AND WELLNESS, Third Edition (with Terry-Ann Spitzer Gibson). He was the first author to write a college fitness textbook that incorporated the "wellness" concept and introduced the principle that to truly improve fitness, health, and achieve wellness, a person needed to go beyond the basic health-related components of physical fitness. As an innovator in the field, Dr. Hoeger has developed many fitness and wellness assessment tools, including fitness tests such as the modified sit and reach, total body rotation, shoulder rotation, muscular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, and soda pop coordination tests. Proving that he "practices what he preaches," at 48, he was the oldest male competitor in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. He raced in the sport of luge along with his 17-year-old son Christopher. This was the first time in Winter Olympics history that father and son competed in the same event.
