Brain Fitness for Older Adults: How to Incorporate Cognitive Fitness into Physical Activity Programming

This course teaches fitness professionals how to effectively promote cognitive health in older adult physical activity programs. It provides directions for including mentally stimulating activities in fitness settings and for motivating clients to remain active not just physically, but also socially and intellectually, with age. It makes the existing body of knowledge on cognitive health more accessible to fitness workers by presenting complex information in reader-friendly language and by relating it to their workplace, so that they may confidently inform, encourage, and share sound activity approaches with their clients. Using both text and film, this course provides basic anatomical, physiological, and functional foundations. It includes 25 ready-to-implement brain fitness activity plans, plus instructions for developing one's own activity ideas. It also provides fascinating historical context (for example, who was the first documented Alzheimer's patient?) that reinforces and brings to life the technical information related in the course.
