221: Powerful Functional Circuits for Older Adults

Time Block D - Friday, 11:10am-12:40pm
Presented by: Cody Sipe, PhD
Session Format: Workshop

The incredible growth of the 55+ population means great opportunity for fitness professionals. Group training has many advantages over 1–1 training for older clients, including enhanced social interaction and fun, but it also provides a lot of challenge given their diverse functional abilities and conditions. This session will provide a framework for creating functional exercise programs in the group environment while maximizing safety and social interaction. Small-group (4–6 clients) and large-group training options and formats will be discussed, and several preformatted functional circuits will be provided and practiced.
