Too often personal trainers resort to machine based, unilateral movements for loaded training for seniors. Seniors, like all populations, need to move well and not feel as though they have to tip toe through their activities of daily living. Through his own experiences with his senior clientele, ACE Master Trainer Sam Berry will explore dynamic progressions and modified exercise to empower your senior training clients to feel like they can thrive and not just survive.

You will learn:

  • How to take a holistic approach to loaded movement training for seniors
  • How to apply the IFT model to transitional movement patterns for seniors
  • How to leverage gravitational load training to create effective, efficient training for seniors
  • How to assess and regress loaded movement training for seniors to be pain free

Reviews

I work with seniors weekly and felt that this was not applicable to what they can do. I was hoping for simple do's and don'ts to share with them for weight training as well statistics on the importance of strength training as an older adult as a few best exercises.

Great content helps to reiterate the tactics for helping the senior population

Program was good with respect to using the ACE IFT model but was not focused enough and specific enough for the geriatric population Lille I hoped. Presentor presented clearly and seemed to have a wealth of experience. I liked his presentation style.
