The Older Adult Fitness Module is an in-depth and informative course designed to prepare the fitness leader who has already taken a specialty module (Group Fitness, Weight Training, Aqua Fitness, Yoga, Pilates, etc.) to instruct seniors through a safe and effective fitness program. As we age, we go through many changes, both physiological and psychological. You will learn how aging affects the heart, lungs, muscles and other soft tissue and how this affects a person’s flexibility, strength and metabolism. Help the seniors you train to get the best from your training sessions!
