Presented by Pat VanGalen, MS
Agility, often coined the champion of neuromotor abilities, is hit the hardest with aging. Is it a deficiency in sensory input or output? A physiological, neurological or motor issue? An exposure issue? Or a combination
In a provocative update on its contribution to automatic movement and fall resistance, and its role in pursuing lifelong physical literacy, including brain health, Pat will present the most relevant and practical findings from rehab, research, gerontology, masters athletics, S&C and sport coaching, and surely tweak your current system of training older adults.
Rethink opportunities to fire, wire, and rewire circuits to preserve and enhance agility for decades to come.
