Learn why the greatest time for medicine and the fitness industry is right now.

Join 200* Fitness, Allied Health and Medical Professionals for the industry groundswell in Seattle this summer!

August 15-17, 2019 at the Washington Athletic Club

Nobody is better positioned to capitalize on this gap between human need and medical offerings than the elite personal trainer with specialized knowledge, and the medical community working together.

What’s Included:

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 workshop will include hands-on components and a clear blueprint on how to work with some of your most challenging older clients.
