The rapid growth of the aging population (age 50+) presents unprecedented opportunity for the fitness professional who understands how to train these clients effectively. This comprehensive and innovative certification program is just what you need to become an expert in functional fitness for mature adults.

Boomers and aging adults come to you for your expertise. This interactive workshop will give you the tools and teach you the skills necessary to implement functional training techniques, strategies and movements that are important to your aging clientele.
