Train for Life! The older adult market represents the fastest growing segment within fitness. They represent a unique group striving to fend off chronic illnesses, and align the benefits of activity with fall prevention, functional independence, and overall quality of life. This session investigates the physiological changes that occur with aging and discusses research on reversing or slowing these changes.
