    Seriously, the adults I’ve trained for 20 years don’t want to play games. Their fitness games are their cycling, skiing, swimming etc. Not their fitness hour.

    As much as I like games, I don’t think most of my participants will be ok with this. I do think that we need to try to find ways to keep them through the cool down, but I don’t think this is it, at least for my classes.

    Cool down stretching has its specific targets on those worked muscles and I don’t think playing a game of chance is sufficient to fulfill the purposes of cool down. And normally when the class is fun, the participants have no issue staying for the cool down.

    I bring what I call my bag of tricks to my group training session. The bag consists of all kinds of “toys” that can be used for myofasial release. For instance I have found that a fast pitch softball works really well to roll out the hamstrings and calves. I take the balls I have in my bag and start suggesting ideas to the group and they enjoy the knowledge as well as doing something different each week.

    Most ideas are not applicable to Water Fitness. Average age is 60. They usually stay for the “Active Recovery,” however, I have enticed them to stay in the water with a “moving stretch recovery” with the promise of appointing an MVP (Most Valued Participant) whose name goes into a drawing at the end of the month for a small coffee giftcard, etc., it works for my Active Agers.

    I think this is great.
