It’s not just the young who want to keep fit – more and more older adults are setting about keeping active and embarking on a healthier lifestyle.
However, as people grow older, joints unfortunately become stiffer and completing certain exercises becomes more of a challenge.
As an Older Adult Fitness Coach, you’ll have the knowledge and skills to work with older adults in creating safe, realistic and effective exercise plans. There are a number of considerations that personal trainers must be aware of when working with those of a certain age. Whether it’s weakening joints, blood pressure, heart problems or simply a newcomer to the gym environment, our Older Adult Fitness Coach course will teach you all you need to know about the physiology of aging, weight management and adapting exercise regimes for older adults.
If you’re are looking to add a specialist bow to your belt, this could be a course to give your career a boost! With the over 60’s increasingly taking up healthier lifestyles, they’ll be looking for qualified specialists to show them the way!
