I am looking at the choices in certification. I want to work with seniors; I’m in my early 50’s myself. But looking at the different programs, I don’t know if it’s best to do group training or personal training? I would like to do both, but I can’t find the right combination geared toward seniors. Group training seems to be focused on classes for younger folks, not what seniors would do.
the others have already pointed out the differences, and they did it well enough. You are making assumptions, though, that group fitness is only geared towards younger people. I would suggest that you check the Senior Fitness Association which has a certification for senior group fitness that may suit your needs. Here is a link: http://www.seniorfitness.net/
Wish you good luck and a happy New Year.
