80% of people over 65 have at least one chronic disease. How do you modify the side plank to an individual with tendonitis in the shoulder? How do you incorporate cardiovascular conditioning into a program with students who have osteoarthritis in their knees? If you have students or clients with chronic conditions, then this DVD is for you! You will be shown a multitude of modifications for exercises that will keep the older population moving.

This is a live recorded session from the 2008 IDEA World Fitness Convention™.

I got more out of Gay's session than I did any of the others I attended. It was obvious that Gay works with older adults so she was able to communicate the special needs of that population.

A terrific class, could use more of her type of presentation, very well thought out and useful to everyone.

Working with senior populations, I found this class confirming , encouraging and inspiring.
