If you teach older adult fitness classes, you'll want to check out this week's video. Last week Angie shared tips on neuromotor training and how it can help older adults stay safe and maintain their functional independence. This week she follows up with a Key Safety Consideration: Teaching Floor to Standing Transfer. Group fitness classes build positive emotions for older adults. They offer a natural sense of community and the motivation they need to stay active and healthy. We here at AFAA hope these videos ignite your passion to share what you love with older adults.
