Senior Fitness Certification
Available from International Sports Sciences Assn., (ISSA)
By the year 2030, the number of Americans over the age of 65 will grow to over 63 million. This senior age group now constitutes the fastest growing segment of our population, and ISSA’s Senior Fitness Certification course is perfectly tailored to teach you the skills needed to provide personal training to elderly adults.
Each year hundreds of senior men and women who participate in events that demand a high level of fitness, like marathons and triathlons, dispel the old belief that sickness and deterioration are a necessary part of the aging process. Scientific evidence accumulates daily proving that with regular exercise, a senior can experience good health and vitality for the duration of their life. Study after study has shown that the typical senior is not only capable of strenuous exercise, but can vastly improve his or her health, strength, mobility and independence, following a properly constructed senior fitness program.
Now, after several years of intensive preparation, the ISSA has brought together some of the finest minds in fitness training science to create a breakthrough Senior Fitness Certification program for personal trainers who wish to work with seniors or elderly adults. While this burgeoning segment of the personal training market constitutes a lucrative opportunity, the real value is in the joy you'll experience in changing people's lives.
