"The curriculum was very well written and formatted for effective learning. Excellent! Thank you!!

Thank you." -- Joanne B., California

Senior Fitness Instructor

"Best fitness course I've ever taken. I feel the content is very trustworthy. Thank you! What I liked most about the course is how carefully laid out it is. Each section is presented in a way that enables a new instructor to confidently plan a class designed for the older population that is engaging, fun and also safe. The course was very thorough. I really liked the fact that specific medical conditions and medications were included. I also really liked the diet and nutrition portion. All aspects are interconnected. The course provides a solid understanding of senior fitness programming. It is wonderful! Thank you!" -- Jayne B., Vermont

"The information for older adults is very informative and most helpful. Keep up the good work for us seniors so we can live to a ripe ol' age -- healthy!" -- Kaye H., Maine

"I have been teaching fitness for more than 25 years. I have several certifications. But I learned much more than I anticipated. This is a tough but very good course. I liked learning the specific differences in safety when teaching older adults versus younger populations. I also liked that more credit was given to the abilities of older adults when it comes to participating in fitness activities. I have taught group fitness for 25 years but, until recently, not classes specific for older adults. I am always careful and monitor my classes closely. But I am far more knowledgable about both safety and effectiveness now." -- Grace W., Maryland
