Best instructor certifications for aging adult/seniors group programs
I am a personal trainer looking to expand into group fitness programming for aging adults (60+) and would like feedback on certifications programs or certificate courses that would prepare me well for expanding from 1:1 training to larger group programs for seniors. I would like to work with a variety of ability levels, with focus on the beginner/low fitness or ability population (such as might be for residents in a long-term care facility).

Also ACE has a great one as well:
I hope this helps.
I am a fan of the Senior Fitness Association, and Harris has already provided a link. The one thing that makes them different from all the rest is that they ONLY deal with senior fitness whereas many other organizations have that as one of many options.
