Course Description

This course covers the fundamentals of training the elderly. We look at:

  • What their challenges would be, what the precautions are when training them and what the objectives for their programmes should be
  • Watch as we teach an elderly lady by modifying and assisting numerous exercises
  • Learn what their restrictions are and how you can design a programme for them and therefore improve their overall wellbeing.

There needs to be a greater focus on understanding what they are capable of doing and what would be contraindicated for them during movement and exercise.
