What is the best exercise program, for older adults

18 Answers | Asked by Delmar Carey on Oct 17, 2012

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 20, 2012

13 Answers | Asked by Alissa Parker on Oct 18, 2012

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 18, 2012

I know a similar question was asked previously but what are some good websites for trainers?

8 Answers | Asked by Thea Jorgensen on Oct 15, 2012

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 16, 2012

Hi Thea, just one additional thing: while I like IDEA FitnessConnect (obviously) I still operate my own web site and would not dream of taking it down. I am able to both determine content and layout, and I can provide a lot more information there than I can here at this site. The annual cost of o...

As a senior group exercise instructor, how much can I charge an assisted living center per class?

8 Answers | Asked by Robin Marshall on Oct 12, 2012

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 13, 2012

Hi Robin, as you did not have a profile at IDEA FitnessConnect, I have a few more questions. Have you already approached those facilities to see what their policy is like? Most have some instructors on staff and may have already rules for such classes. A major issue for assisted living facilit...
