Regardless of age or condition, adults can safely improve their health and independence through exercise and physical activity. SrFit provides advanced training for experienced, certified personal trainers who wish to work with Baby Boomers and beyond (ages 45–63+).
With SrFit, you will gain an understanding of how the aging process affects all the systems of the body, identify dietary changes that may be needed, and develop effective training strategies to improve flexibility, endurance, strength and optimal function in your older-adult clients. You will learn how to individualize a training regimen that fits the physiological capabilities of older adults. This skill will become very important as the industry sets standards for personal training, and as the medical community and insurance companies begin to recognize personal trainers as an available option for referring patients who need help with lifestyle change. This book was written with the aging Baby Boomer in mind—now in its second edition!
SrFit™ specialist program materials include: 330-page manual, 60-page study guide, 2 1/2–hour DVD set featuring Wayne Westcott, and a 1-hour audio CD featuring Tammy Petersen and her husband Mark, a geriatrician. An online exam is included and requires a passing score of 80% to earn CEU credit.
