Strength Training for Your Active Agers – #activeagingweek

We need to focus more on our process than the outcome of our process.

Happy October. Jenice and I hope the last quarter of this year is off to a great start.

Did you know that this week, October 1-7, is Active Aging Week?

The purpose of this week is to empower Active Agers – adults age 50 and over – to be proactive in their aging process.

The mission is to celebrate:

“…aging and the benefits of active living at any age, Active Aging Week showcases the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society.”

If you work with Active Agers, then you are part of a growing movement that celebrates our older adults and empowers them to be active participants in their health and wellness.

Unfortunately, our industry continues to promote strategies and programs that are geared to the younger and athletic populations.

This has left a huge proverbial gap in our industry for those of us that work with Active Agers – baby boomers, seniors, and the Gen X’ers who will soon turn 60.

This is exactly why we created the Integrative Movement System™. The Integrative Movement System™ is a strategic process for: 

  • Assessing your clients and determining the underlying causes of tightness, discomfort, weakness, balance issues, and inability to perform at the levels they need and want
  • Addressing these causes by using the most appropriate corrective exercises
  • Progressing your clients so they can successfully and safely achieve their health and fitness goals.

If you don’t have or use a process like I just described, then you are not being the specialist your clients need or your potential clients will seek out.

During the Integrative Corrective Exercise Instructor™ Certification Program – designed specifically for health and fitness professionals like you who specialize in training Active Agers – we teach why your process is more important than your exercise program.

Here’s what I mean…

To be the go-to specialist for Active Agers, you need to:

  • Understand common health issues like spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, and working with clients after joint replacements, strokes, and falls;
  • Have a systematic process for assessing your clients to recognize their specific abilities and limitations;
  • Develop the most appropriate corrective and functional exercises to improve strength, power, and balance.

In this week’s edition of Integrative Movement Insider™, I’m going to share with you:

  • How to easily assess your clients.
  • How to choose the most appropriate exercise progressions to improve strength, power, and balance.
  • How to immediately determine if you have improved your client’s stability and range of motion during your resistance training programs.

 Tomorrow, I’ll be on Facebook Live at 8:00am CST / 9:00am EST discussing the first step of the Integrative Movement System™.

No worries if you’re not on Facebook. We will record it and post it on our website.

Make it a great day and I’ll speak with you tomorrow.

P.S.: We are offering the Integrative Corrective Exercise Instructor™ Certification Program one final time this year.

This workshop is guaranteed to improve your process for training Active Agers as well as elevate your skillset in working with older individuals that present with spine, hip and shoulder issues.

There are only 6 openings remaining in this workshop so enroll now and reserve yours.
