Join Lawrence and 82-year young Bernadette O'Brien for a theoretical and practical application of what it means to train "seniors" today versus just a few years ago. Teaching to this population, the "chronologically enriched," involves a new mindset and a new toolbox for today's group and personal trainers. This team--with a combined age of over 130 years--will share with you a discussion of "age," new general guidelines, and practical stories of movements, successes & inspiration that you can take to your older clients with a fresh approach. (Equipment: yoga mats if possible). Running time: 2 parts, approx. 60 minutes total.

Can Fit Pro Active Aging Online Program
The Active Aging Certificate program (AAC) is in response to the statistics highlighting that the over 50’s are making up the fastest-growing age group in Canada. With this trend expected to continue for the next several decades, we realize that response to exercise is not age-dependent, it's mind-dependent. This means that at any age or fitness level someone can respond positively to exercise and nutrition and gain benefits. The new Active Aging Certification Certificate will cover a wide variety of topics related to aging and the very broad spectrum of clients/class participants. Register now at canfipro.com
