As an NASM Senior Fitness Specialist (SFS), you’ll play an important role in keeping the growing population of seniors healthy and active—by designing effective exercise programs specific to their individual needs.
Grow your career. You’ll have earned a distinct advantage with the quickly growing senior fitness market. Fitness facilities are experiencing substantial growth in senior membership and need qualified professionals to fulfill this demand. And, many of these seniors have a more flexible schedule and can train during your non-peak appointment times.
Design training programs for seniors. You’ll have the confidence to design training programs catered to the needs of seniors by using NASM’s Optimum Performance Training™ (OPT™) model as your guide. With an understanding of the aging process and common medical conditions, you’ll be able to incorporate additional program modifications for seniors based on their goals and fitness assessments.
Empower your senior clients to maintain their independence and active lifestyles. You’ll be able to address many of the concerns that could impact a senior’s independence and activities, such as reducing their risk of falls, improving strength, balance, weight loss, and nutritional guidance, and for the more active clients, improving sport performance.
