A diverse group of actual mature clients are used in many of the exercise examples so that you can see how the movements are actually done rather than just how they are supposed to be done.

Coming Soon...FAI Group & Circuit Training
Certificate Program

To work most effectively with mature adults it is important to learn how to train in small groups, large groups and circuit or bootcamp style formats. For example, small group training is a popular, effective and profitable format for mature adults yet it requires special consideration and skills in order to deliver safely and effectively. The number of bootcamp programs is on the rise and are attracting large numbers of adults over the age of 50. It is critical that instructors understand their needs and considerations to get good results and retain these members. This program will launch in 2015.
