Third Age (Seniors) Instructor
Important! The BCRPA Third Age designation no longer exists - as of May 1, 2015, BCRPA have changed the certification to the Older Adult Fitness Module which will have a more thorough course, online exam and ICE to receive your designation. The Third Age course will still be valid for CECs as a workshop if you are looking to get your Older Adult Fitness Leader designation please purchase that course.
This interesting and informative course is designed to help the fitness leader 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!
