Branching Out into This Highly Rewarding Fitness Career Path
As a personal fitness instructor, have you ever consider expanding your career or specializing in a different area of fitness? Maybe you want to try something different and have a more varied career? There are many different worthwhile options that you can consider, but one sure-fire way is by earning several ASFA® certifications in different forms of exercise and personal training. Our certifications will allow you to diversify effectively, appeal to a wider range of clients, and enjoy more variety in your day-to-day work. One extremely beneficial, and rewarding qualification, is a Senior Fitness instruction certification. This certification involves learning how to cater specifically to seniors and help improve their quality of life.
Seniors can benefit significantly from keeping healthy and staying active. As we grow older, it becomes increasingly important to keep our muscles and joints active. If we do not, our strength and flexibility can decrease and conditions such as arthritis can become even more of a problem. Even if seniors only attend an exercise class once a week for 30-45 minutes, it can still make a huge difference. Senior fitness classes can also provide a much-needed social interaction and give them the chance to meet other seniors and engage in a meaningful activity as a group.
An ASFA® certification in Senior Fitness Instruction is the perfect way to help improve the older adults’ quality of life. Consider your grandparents or older family members. Consider how you could help them and what it would mean to give them a new lease of life. It’s time to learn how you can cater to the fitness needs of seniors by providing safe and effective workouts. Take your senior fitness instruction qualification today and make a difference!
