  • With more than 25 percent of Americans over the age of 65, learning to safely and effectively train senior adults could mean a tremendous business opportunity for you. Make training more accessible to older adults by learning how you can train them in their homes. Discover balance and movement challenges for the core, upper and lower body, and exercise modifications that take into account considerations applicable to senior clients. Includes a 20-question online quiz you can complete from your home or office.

    You will learn:

    • Role of exercise in restoring or maintaining functional independence in older adults
    • Program design and safety considerations for working with senior clients at home
    • Development of a home exercise program with progressions for core, balance, lower- and upper-body strength, integrated whole-body movements, and stretching for older adults

    I LOVED this course. Both of the instructors did a great job of teaching you as an instructor while staying active and engaged as a trainer to their client. Exercises and concepts were clear to understand and having demonstrations was great. This is the best online "live" course I've done.

    Lots of good information and detail about in-home training Some Quiz questions were a bit "picky" and addressed some very specific details. Overall a very good course.


    ACE RESPONSE:  Thank you Amy for your feedback!  We are glad you enjoyed the details of the course and we hope you find it useful when training clients.

    Outstanding! Very easy to comprehend. Exam hit key points rather than trivia. Great course for anyone training older adults in-home or in a studio.

    Really enjoyed this. The videos were great and well-presented!

    Great course. Sue Grant is wonderful with seniors and senior exercise/balance training!!! and Mary really is a rock star! A couple of notes however: in the first few videos, especially the medication segment, the slides have so many words and go by so quickly that it is difficult to absorb the information. Also, in the Balance video, there are two segments where the video editing failed - so that she ended up repeating and even changing some of what she was instructing.


    ACE RESPONSE: Thank you for the helpful feedback.

    The course material was great, however, I prefer reading the material versus the home workout/online video course material.


    ACE RESPONSE: Thanks Dale for the helpful feedback!

    I found the way each exercise was presented with progressions was very helpful. As someone with an interest in working with older adults and just starting out in the personal training field, it was also useful to see at what level the instructor recommended each exercise should be started.

    Very well done! I'd like to purchase a DVD of the online content to review periodically. Is this possible?


    ACE RESPONSE: So glad you enjoyed this course. More information, including manual and DVD are a part of the Senior Fitness specialty certification. Look here for more information:

    taken good notes its all there

    Some very good information here, much of the information was very useful and will be integrated into practice and group classes. What I did not like 1. "flat back" often used instead of "neutral spine" 2. some poor cuing and not noticing poor positioning and lack of range of motion 3. there were plenty of progressions but few regressions--progressions are easy for most of us to come up with, regressions not so takes a lot of creativity to do this without making the client think you are you are 'babying' them 4. the tone from the presenters (one in particular) was very condescending--almost as if talking to a child...I am 65 and many of my clients decades older but none of us will tolerate being spoken to in that fashion, being told we are doing great constantly is thoroughly annoying...'we' are just old/er not stupid.


    ACE RESPONSE: Thank you for this valuable feedback. We continue to strive to bring the best continuing education to our professionals and appreciate your comments. An ACE Representative will be in contact with you soon via email to discuss your specific concerns.
