Exercise and Aging for Special Populations
Short Description: As a continuation of Designing Older Adult Exercise Programs, this course encompasses a deeper study of designing safe and effective exercise programs for older adults. Going beyond the basic exercise recommendations for this population, students will, by the end of this course, be able to design an appropriate fitness regimen taking into consideration critical information such as a client’s age, gender, health history, current health conditions and exercise history.
Instructor Description: This course is completely self-paced. Students have access to the Student Helpdesk where they can ask any questions related to the experience or curriculum.
