Aging Stronger: Exercise Programming for Older Adults From Fit to Frail
Friday, August 16, 8:00am-12:00pm
Led by Dr. Chrisitan Thompson and Dr. Stephen Black
No matter where an older adult falls along the continuum of function (Fit to Frail), there is always potential for the person to improve. But obstacles exist that reduce the expectation of improvement, especially for people at the highest and lowest ends of the functional continuum.
Join Dr. Stephen Black and Dr. Chris Thompson as they apply the Aging Stronger model to guide exercise assessment and program design for older adults at both extremes – the senior athlete and the functionally dependent older adult. This information-packed session will include hands-on components and a clear blueprint on how to work with some of your most challenging older clients.
Up to 3 CEC/CEUs for fitness professionals for this workshop.
