Type: Online Course

Item: C910570CEC

Description

The 55+ age group represents the fastest-growing segment within the fitness industry. They are characterized by a need to maintain functional autonomy and overall quality of life. The ACE Integrated Fitness Training® Model delivers a systematic approach, including age-appropriate assessments and programming that encompass physical, emotional, cognitive, social and behavioral parameters. Phase 1 addresses stability and mobility, the cornerstones to developing balance. Phase 2 restores functional independence through multiplanar movement training. These foundational phases will prepare your clients physiologically, cognitively and emotionally to face additional challenges as they progress to traditional training.
