Why Traditional Senior Fitness is Dead

Dan discusses why he thinks the traditional senior fitness program is dead.  The old way of training seniors where they sat in a chair and did exercises in a chair is not the way to improve function.  Our program is geared towards improving function, lower body strength, reducing falls and much much more.  To start training clients effectively and help them function better as they get older, take a look at the Functional Aging Specialist at the tab above.

Why Senior Clients?

Dr. Dan Ritchie discusses the “why” in why you should train senior clients and shares his journey about how he came to train senior clients.  Dan started out training Division 1 athletes and soon realized that this was not the clientele that he wanted to train long term.  He moved to Wisconsin where he started his master’s degree.  He posted a group training signup for women in their forties at a fitness facility.  He quickly had way more clients sign up then he could handle and realized that this population was one that was being underserved.  While training there, Dan had the opportunity to train a client that had a unique fitness goal.  Watch the video to hear the rest of his amazing story!  To begin training this clientele today, check out the “Certifications” tab above.
