Exercise Programming for Active Older Adults
This course is sold off-site from the PTontheNet.
The newest cohort of older adults, the Baby Boomers, see themselves very differently than those that came before them. In many ways, the Baby Boomers are redefining what it means to get older. In fact, most people now define being old not as a chronological age, but instead as the time when they can no longer live independently or fully take care of themselves. So, what does this all mean for fitness professionals working with the active older adult? Who are these people? What should guide the choice of fitness/functional assessments to determine current level of function? How rigorous of a training program should be delivered and what components should be included? How much should we worry about diseases and chronic conditions? How do we build rapport with our older clientele? This training course is devoted to answering these questions.
This course includes a 1 year membership on the MedFit Network (MFN). (A $169 value! For new MFN members only).
