The current trend in fitness is to “train your grandmother like you train your athletes.” Although older adults can be trained using the same movements as athletes, incorporating a one-size-fits-all program could do more harm than good. In this recorded webinar, you’ll discover flaws of this current trend and why the margin of error is far greater when training competitive athletes than when working with older adults. Learn the right way to work with grandmothers and grandfathers by finding a starting point and rate of progression that fits each client.
You will learn:
- Real-world application of the current trend of training “your grandmother like you train your athletes”
- Proper starting points and rate of progressions for clients using the ACE Integrated Fitness Training® (ACE IFT®) model
- Reasoning behind why training programs for competitive athletes and older adults involves much more than just “scaling intensity”
