What Is The Right Exercise For Your Age? Free Webinar


Physical status, function and physiology changes with age. Because of this, you have to adapt your training. Are you doing the right exercise for your age?

Webinar Title:

What is the right exercise for your age?

Wednesday 19th June 2019 | 15.00 BST

There is evidence emerging that modifying exercise and focussing on different fitness domains at different life stages can maximise health benefits and contribute to successful ageing.

This webinar will consider the ebb and flow of physical activity throughout the life cycle in relation to normal physiological ageing as well as in the presence of common diseases that can manifest at certain life stages. With an awareness of these factors, this webinar will detail age and life-stage specific exercise prescription considerations from childhood to old age and how we should change the focus of exercise continually throughout the lifecycle.

Learn the best exercise for your age

After watching this webinar you’ll be able to identify and advise age and life-stage appropriate exercises in the presence or absence of common diseases.
