Body Conditioning for Older Adults
This course teaches exercise techniques that meet the needs of older adults at all levels of fitness (beginning through advanced). Exercises include warm-ups, semi-cardio and cardiovascular workouts, mat routines, repetitious exercise for muscular toning, strength and endurance, balance, stretching, flexibility, and cool-downs. Students work at their own pace and levels of fitness. Pulse rates may be taken before, during, and after various exercises to gauge appropriateness of exercise level. As with any exercise program, a physician’s approval is recommended.
