SrFit Mature Fitness Specialty Certification home study continuing education course provides advanced training for experienced, certified personal trainers who wish to work with Baby Boomers and beyond (mid 40's+). With this course, you will gain an understanding of how the aging process affects all the systems of the body, identify dietary changes that may be needed, and develop effective training strategies to improve flexibility, endurance, strength and optimal function in your older-adult clients. You will learn how to individualize a training regimen that fits the physiological capabilities of mature adults. This will become even more important as the industry sets standards for personal training, and as the medical community and insurance companies begin to recognize personal trainers as an available option for referring patients who need help with lifestyle change.
