Older adults are the largest and fastest-growing age group on the planet. In addition, they are the wealthiest and most educated senior population in history. They need high-quality fitness services, yet few fitness businesses and professionals really understand how to attract, train and retain this population. In this session, you’ll learn proven marketing, sales and training strategies to help you grow your business with older clients.

Strength training has long been considered the go-to exercise for improving function in older adults, but evidence suggests that power training may provide additional advantages over strength training. This session will explore the evidence related to the functional benefits of strength and power training and will teach a number of exercises and techniques appropriate for older adults, including those with chronic health concerns. We’ll also explore programming variables such as sets, reps, speed and load.

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. Also, learn to conduct meaningful functional assessments and develop effective exercise programs. Whether you conduct private trainings, small-group trainings or group fitness classes, the techniques learned in this valuable certification will serve you and your clients for years to come.

Participants will get full access to all of the online education modules (14+ hours of video, manuals, audio files), several of which will need to be completed prior to the workshop. This certification also requires participants to complete an online exam. And as an added bonus, this course now includes a 5-hour business component where you will learn how to market, sell and attract more clients, and how to leverage this credential in the marketplace.

(1-hour lunch on your own)

Up to 24 CECs when combining in-person and online, self-study content.

Participants will receive an IDEA CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION.
