The Silver&Fit Signature Series offers 3 different, progressive levels of group fitness programming designed to meet the needs of the wide variety of older adult fitness levels and abilities—from the de-conditioned or new exerciser who requires in chair programming to the athletic, fitter older adult who has continued to stay active.
This distance learning course will educate and train instructors on how to teach three different levels of Silver&Fit group fitness classes: Explore, Experience, and Excel. All classes provide older adult students with fun, time-efficient, circuit-based workouts that encompass a well-rounded approach to fitness so they can maintain an independent lifestyle, continue to participate in activities they love, and be empowered to live healthier, happier lives.
This course consists of 17 learning modules; each contains a unique combination of required reading, video presentations, practical application drills, and quizzes to ensure learning objectives are met. After the 17 modules have been completed, students are required to pass a final test by scoring 70% or higher.
