Fitness Professionals: Training the Over 50s is the definitive handbook for any fitness professional who works with older adults. The 50 plus age range is one of the fastest growing groups of regular gym goers and they are increasingly turning to personal trainers and fitness instructors for guidance. This practical book - written with the latest professional standards on the subject in mind - covers: the relationship between fitness and ageing - the components of fitness and their use with different age groups training adults with chronic conditions - the common conditions effecting older adults and the implications for training designing individual programmes - the questions to ask the client and the necessary modifications and adaptations to exercises.
