Good, basic overview for the kinds of issues you would encounter in working with this population. Also includes good "talking points" for how to encourage a beginning exerciser in this group to start training and keep with it.
ACE Response: Thank you for your feedback!

It is a good course if your just starting out in working with seniors. If you have experience working with seniors you might not get as much out of this course as you would like. I would definitely recommend for beginners in working with seniors. Though is a good refresher course if you have experience working with seniors.

Great course. Lots of relative information that can be used in everyday training with the older adult.

Pretty good course. I would like to see more training for people in the 85 - 100 age range. I work with many clients in nursing homes or in-home care where strength training is definitely beneficial.

Good for a trainer with less working experience (or someone that hasn't trained senior adults). Otherwise, the course is a nice review.

Good solid introduction. Small point, on the YMCA leg test used in the course the calculations forget to mention you need to times the number by 100 to get a percentage that can be compared to the table of results provided. Might confuse someone if maths was not a strong point.

The information included in this presentation will be very beneficial to anyone who trains older adults.
I gave this course an average rating because the instructional photos in the "Recommended Exercises for Seniors" were poorly taken. The exercise descriptions reference "start position" while the pictures are taken from angles which provide no frame of reference. For example, the Chest Press section recommends placing feet on the floor - meanwhile the woman photographed has her feet on the bench.
I feel more confident working with my senior clients, because of this course. So I would recommend it. However, with a population in which proper form is so fundamental to success, the poor use of photography and lack of "start position" descriptions are disappointing.

Ok, first off, the quiz froze and I was not able to answer a question. Thank goodness I knew the rest of the answers or else that could of been bad. The class was very simple which I liked and great for beginners working with older adults. It reminded me of college lecture notes which again, I prefer as oppose to research study papers. Good & easy course.

It was okay but not as in-depth as I expected

Some of the content seemed very basic & the audio delivery was very slow. I would have preferred more specifics on working with seniors and why instructors should instruct in certain ways; ie, what aspects of aging require instructors to teach in a certain way. More options for strength would be nice as well, maybe resistance bands, and more specific choices for programming.

The only issue was with navigation. Sometimes the audio played, but a lot of times, I had to select play on it...great information though.
