Description: Are you working with people in the 50-70 year old age range who want to live actively, comfortably and energetically? Do you want to attract more of this group to your classes? Be among the first to learn seven principles that you can weave into your class program design to address the needs and wants of generally healthy, moderate- to high-functioning midlife boomers.
Create targeted, functional fitness programs that are low risk, yet yield high rewards for people in midlife. These key principles apply primarily to group fitness classes, but you can adapt them for one-to-one and small group settings. You will learn how to design exercises that allow participants to maintain function and expand, not shrink, their capabilities.
(Note: This session does not address the sedentary, frail, super fit or “young” middle-aged competitive athlete.)
Learn how to:
Depend on seven principles to guide your programming and class design.
Choose exercises that support the functional ability of boomers.
Select language, cues and options that minimize fears and maximize activity for the over-50 participant.
Who will benefit:
Group fitness instructors
Program managers and wellness directors
