How to lead a group exercise class for active older adults was a challenge I faced years ago. Learn from my journey as I applied my education, experience, and the feedback I received from older adults to develop an easy-to-follow format certified group fitness instructors could use.
The ToughAgers® format follows guidelines and research for older adult fitness. Through detailed narrated videos this course teaches you how to apply this information.
With over 155 detailed exercise examples, you will be guided through the following:
• Module 1 - Cardiorespiratory Training
• Module 2 - Balance Training
• Module 3 - Resistance Training
• Module 4 - Core Training
• Module 5 - Flexibility Training
After you have completed the over 3 1/2 hours of instruction, you are encouraged to take the untimed 40 question quiz. With a score of 80% or higher, you will receive a ToughAgers® Instructors Course Completion certificate.

Exercise is for everyone and seniors are no exception. The body will do what it is trained to do so let's train seniors so their bodies will function optimally. Just like all other age groups, seniors need: cardio, balance, resistance, core, and flexibility training. Since most of them will not exercise on their own, let's provide a fun, supportive, and social environment for them to do so. This course will give you the tools to lead a safe and effective active senior fitness class with confidence.
