900: BOSU®: Mobility and Stability for Active Aging Specialty Certification, Level 1

Sunday, 8:00am-5:00pm
Session Format: Workshop

This brand-new BOSU certification gives both group fitness instructors and personal trainers new ways to train one of the largest growing populations on the planet, the active aging market. Using the approaches of WHAT, WHY and HOW, participants will receive research-based ideas to learn WHAT are the best exercises to teach to active agers, WHY certain movement patterns are important, and HOW best to implement these cutting-edge movement patterns and training techniques in group classes and personal training sessions. Understand the four types of age and learn how to use creative games to build functional strength, face the fear of falling with gait training, practice various ways to get up and down, move more efficiently through the entire kinetic chain, train mental functions, and ultimately make all daily movements easier to do! While moving through many of the body’s functional positions for activities of daily life, this workshop will explore how the BOSU can provide assistance, resistance, cushioning and stimulus to amplify the effect for this important and growing market of exercisers. Participants will receive the BOSU Active Aging, Level 1 Training Manual, the BOSU Mobility and Stability for Active Aging DVD, and a comprehensive list of practical takeaways, including cutting-edge, peer-reviewed research on active aging, and hands-on practical experience.

• Approved 0.8 ACE CECs. CECs from other agencies are pending.

• Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion.
