It is said that adults should achieve at least 150 minutes (at minimum) of moderate intensive physical activity a week. So do you have the potential to help older adults become fitter? On our new Active IQ course in Designing Exercise Programmes for Older Adults you can learn about just that, from home!
Regular activity for older adults is very important, as it reduces any chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, obesity and arthritis. Physical activity contributes to a wide range of health benefits and can improve older adult’s lives tremendously. Programmes need to be in place to suit the older adult’s body, so exercises need to be looked at in order to meet their needs.
Our Designing Exercise Programmes for Older Adults course will give you the skills you need to plan a physical activity programme and help communicate this to the older generation. So learn how to help people become fitter now!
