501NASM®: Complete Exercise Program Design for Older Adults WORKSHOP12:30pm-7:00pm (1-hour lunch is on your own) Rich Fahmy, MS
The nation’s senior population is growing daily and fitness professionals need to be prepared to meet the diverse needs of the older adult. Goals range from fall prevention to managing daily activities to handling intense workouts. Many professionals are apprehensive to conduct challenging workouts for their senior clients, but it is crucial that the personal trainer can balance exercise modification with the appropriate level of challenge necessary to produce positive physical adaptation. This workshop will focus on assessment and complete program design for the senior client. Participants will be able to create programs that incorporate flexibility (stretching and self-myofascial release), cardio exercise, core training, balance training, plyometrics, speed/agility/quickness, and resistance training for the goals of older adults. Participants will also be able to modify exercise modalities to accommodate many of the common limitations of seniors.
Whether you are a one-person solo-preneur, a manager leading a large brand, an owner/operator of a training facility or a passionate fitness professional looking for a deeper entrepreneurial experience, this is your opportunity to seize the day and create maximum IMPACT in your life and those around you!
